A youth in Tamil Nadu's Salem bought his dream bike worth Rs 2.6 lakh by paying the entire amount in Re 1 coins. It took the showroom 10 hours to count the money.

V Boobathi dreamt of buying a bike three years ago but didn't have the money as the bike cost Rs 2 lakh back then. So, he started saving 1 rupee coins.

On Saturday, he collected all his savings and took them to a showroom to buy a Bajaj Dominar 400.

"The staff at the showroom took 10 hours to count Boobathi's three years of savings," said Mahavikranth.
