So I lost a job offer because my current salary is too low. They interviewed me, liked me, offered me the job, but wouldn't pay me the stated salary for the job because they cannot justify the percentage jump I would get.

Please wrap your mind around this. #TrueStory
They would pay another person that money, but will not pay me, the preferred candidate that money because they cannot justify to internal auditors the percentage hike I would make.
In negotiations, the language of the hiring manager was to diminish me, he actually used the sentence "we can't pay you for your wrong choices in life". I am not sure where did I ask the organization to pay me money for my previous work. HR said "Look at this as a door".
Saying the same thing over and over again to myself in different ways to understand this. The organization's overall decision was not to pay what is worth for the job, but to see how much I was getting. Not the deal they are getting, but how much is the other party getting.
How to play game theory in India? I always lose.
For those asking, this was the Mullen Lowe Lintas Group, part of IPG.
