as a counterpoint there will always be keeping up with the joneses...
Even in a mall pen store such as the Mantri mall in bangalore, high end western pens are highly sought as status symbols. Rather than buy ten cheapies from rajmundri, most Indian pen afficianadoes are likelier to seek a reputable vintage pen or a boutique low end pen like a souveran or regular issue precious resin. For that is what separates the wheat from the chaff in the burgeoning middle class. Yes, tired and cash strapped middle America or Europe might lean toward cheap pens but you would find very few Indian collectors collecting Indian or Chinese pens.
