Indian Village renames itself Snapdeal.com

In a very strange move, a village in India has changed their name to Snapdeal.com as a sign of gratitute to the company for donating $5,000 worth of water pumps, which will start pumping clean water to the village for a period of 15-20 years at the very least. The strange thing about this, is that it’s not actual a publicity stunt (like other cases like this), but it’s the first time a Village has done this to show their gratitude to a company for helping them out.

According to Snapdeal.com CEO Kunal Bahl, the company was actually taken by surprise when the village decided to do this and he had this to say:

We honestly did something very simple – didn’t even cost that much – and installed 15 hand pumps, which now enable clean water within a distance of 50 meters for all the residents of the village.

We must have spent a total of $5000 on getting this and the really cool part about this is that these 15 hand pumps will give clean water to the villagers for the next 15-20 years!

In a way, it’s cool, but we’re not sure if the Village wants to refer to themselves as Snapdeal.com residents for the rest of their existence, but at least the post man won’t ever get your village confused with another! Have a look at the picture’s below and see for yourself!
