Customs ...

It is so painful to buy things online ... pay the price, wait for delivery and since they (amazon here) happen to deliver it from outside India (which is not always mentioned), I get screwed by a pretty insane duty - 40+ % for movie dvd's ?!
I have had these sort of things delivered before ... and only when it comes through DHL do I get shafted so badly. One thing for sure ... probably no more Amazon - but definitely no DHL for sure.

Eda, why don't you ask somebody coming from US to bring it? As far as I remember, Movie DVDs when brought in by a person doesn't have duty.

Most of the DVDs are available in CMH road footpath in the evening at 50/- :-)

Jokes apart, I think if you're going to buy it from US anyway, just get someone to carry it for you.

I see a good collection online and I cant resist the temptation to get it immediately :-) More so since I just cant seem to think of waiting for another couple of months or so to get it !

As can be see, planning for the future is not my strong points :-D
