Dreaming of buying a bike worth around 1.50 lakh, but don't have much money in pocket? What if we tell you that it is possible even if you have just Rs 4000 now! First of all, do not let it turn into a nightmare by going in for a big debt. Loans are good, but not always. In fact, if possible, you should also learn to save for a big ticket purchase. It is a great way to enforce financial discipline and these lessons will be good for entire lifetime not to mention that you will save a lot in interest. However, do note that this will require you to wait 3 years. The reason? That is how long it will take Rs 4,000 to turn into over Rs 1.5 lakh.
