The price of diesel is about the same in both countries. Petrol is actually cheaper here (another reason for so many cars?)

I am often struck by how much more expensive it is here. Of course food is cheaper if cooked at home, but likely to be by similar proportions in India as well.

Also, Official Minimum wage in Ghana is GHC 2.7 (INR 85)

Any ideas?
