English conversation between two person about inflation
Person 1: Hey, where have you been for so long?
Person 2: I was at the petrol pump, refilling my bike’s tank.

Person 2: It cost me Rs.111 for a liter of petrol
Person 1: What? What are you saying? It was below Rs.109 yesterday! It reach Rs.111 today?
Person 2: Yes, its price is constantly rising day by day.
Person 1: Even I had gone to the market yesterday. Do you know the price of 1kg tomatoes?
Person 2: No. I haven’t been to the market in a few days. I’m sure the prices must have gone up in these couple of days.
Person 1: I’ll tell you. The price of 1kg tomatoes is Rs.80 here.
Person 2: If the price of essential commodities keeps on increasing, what will a common man eat? How will he afford food?
Person 1: If this keeps on continuing, then a common man will not be able to afford even the basic commodities.
Person 2: Educational costs have risen too. The other day, my cousin told me that her college is asking for a fee of Rs.35,000 per year.
Person 1: Ohh my God! Did she take admission over there?
Person 2: She is trying to enter that college through a scholarship. She does not have any other option now.
Person 1: The government is eating up the common man in today’s time. There is still no tap water, no proper roads, and no sanitation in many parts of India.
Person 2: Yeah. This is why it is important for the students to learn and educate themselves so that they can make their lives better as well as that of society.
Person 1: Absolutely.
