MMM in the Sunday newspaper- in India!
« on: April 29, 2018, 08:37:02 PM »
I was pleasantly surprised to read about FIRE in the papers on a Sunday morning. Bonus- it mentioned this website!

https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/home/sunday-times/these-millennials-will-retire-in-40s/articleshow/63955292.cms

The article itself is standard, but nice to have MMM mentioned in a paper with such a huge circulation (world's highest selling English daily). The systems admin should expect a few site visits from India!

Thanks for the link, Bombay. It made me realize that in, say 20 years, the number of Mustachians will be huge. Assume in 20 years that half the world's population is rich enough to consider a Mustachian path, that is 3.5 billion. Assume 5% of any society is potentially Mustachian. This gives about 170 million Mustachians worldwide.

Awesome! I was a very early adopter of MMM from India. Glad to see FIRE increase in popularity.

If I ever go back, it'll make it easier to find like-minded folks too!

Try telling an Indian to have a frugal wedding  :P

Otherwise, yes for a westernised Indian national it is relatively easy to FIRE in India. Cost of living is so incredibly cheap.

Gets me thinking whether FIRE is generally easier to do in a society that has relatively high inequality.

"frugal wedding" is an oxymoron in India.
