    1 Crore = 10 million

    1,00,00,000 = 10,000,000

    So, just the "comma" problem :D
    Well it's a bit different than what most people in the west are used to. It's an uncommon number to have a unique identifier. That's all.

    It's not part of our number system here. I just did a quick look on Wiki and it's very regional to India, Pakistan etc.

    Never heard of it before.
    I've heard of it...haven't heard it mentioned in a while...

    I thought I might have heard it or seen the word before but had no idea what it was.

    Haven't seen that in ages. I used to be interested in currency, so that's why.

    Anyone got the Lumia 830??? How is it? I mean overall performance and design. Having a 720p resolution, is it able to play 1080p or 2K and 4K videos?

    People in the West use the Metric system as well, the US is a glaring exception.

    You're from the US? When we subcontinental people say Western, it refers to the US itself (mostly)!

    Thought you were going to quote Shakespeare.

    I'm originally from Canada and we use metric. Most currencies I know are base 10. Not sure about all currencies as I haven't been everywhere. The UK wasn't base 10 until a few years back.

    The UK is a mix of metric and imperial measurements. However in engineering and science is all metric.

    The US is not metric but it's creeping in slowly.

    This!
    People are slowly getting drinks in 500ml and 1L and 2L bottles. Milk is still a gallon.
    The ironic thing is that the US was one of the first countries to introduce a 100 pennies = $1 currency (metric) but then...it is a long story. NPR had a really cool series about the push in the 70s to switch to metric and then for some reason abandoning it...

    The US will be metric one day. Just a matter of time. Sciences and engineering are slowly moving that way. The rest will follow. My guess is that a lot of hold back was from the work needed to change and tradition plays a large part as well. With more things becoming digital the change over will be less painful.
