Datta Phuge the Indian gold man wearing his $250,000 Gold shirt.
The story of his Obsession for Gold
"When I was at college, people would say you were from a rich family if you had gold. So from the age of 20, I started wearing gold. Back then in smaller quantities, like 10 or 15g."
"Some people ask me why I'm wearing so much gold but it was my dream. People have different aspirations. Some elite people want to own an Audi or Mercedes, and have big cars. I chose gold,"
"She (his wife) owns 500kg of gold, I've bought her necklaces and bags made from it," What? 1,100 pounds of Gold! I have some doubt!
