November 8 isn’t going to be just another day for millions of Indians since last year. It was the day when Modi government scrapped the old currency of Rs 500 and Rs 1000. The move was rather a roller coaster ride for many, with several ups and lows. Few weeks later, new notes of Rs 500 and Rs 2000 were introduced. The government urged people to move towards cashless economy. But the phase around demonetisation will be remembered every year this time.
On first demonetisation anniversary, plethora of debates about its pros and cons are there on social media. While politicians stand divided on the matter, the common man is busy making memes. Twitterati knows it well how to take a jibe on the most serious matters and vital events of the history. So ‘Note Bandi’ was no excpetion.
This day will be known as the death anniversary of our dear old Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes.
Farah Khan’s husband Shirish Kunder took no time to relate Twitter’s introduction of 280 characters with demonetisation.
Rest in peace, Rs 500 and Rs 1000.
