When “Upma” Shoes Cost A Whopping ₹690 & Here’s What Swiggy Says

Recently Yatharth, took to his Twitter handle (@Yarth69) to share a hilarious anecdote. The Twitterati shared a picture of a shoe which he thrifted. The brand? It’s Upma! The fake Puma shoe which is Upma is a grey-coloured sports shoe. In his caption, Yatharth mentions that he thrifted this “delicious” shoe from a local market for ₹690. And he has a golden question— will society accept him?

Quite hilarious that the German brand, Puma now has a desi spin with Upma! For those that don’t know, upma is a famous South Indian breakfast dish made with semolina, spices and veggies. Funnily enough Swiggy Instamart had the funniest reply to his tweet. Swiggy Instamart shared a picture of MTR’s ready-to-eat upma packet.

And then supplemented the picture with a caption, where they told Yatharth to have checked their app before buying. After all, “upma” isn’t this expensive, they said. And then when it comes to whether society would accept him for this, the man received plenty of responses regarding this.
