Now, I want to show you a line. It is essential for all of you who have forgotten all your junior schools mathematics.
Behold – the line
Now, ever since our dear and beloved Prime Minister decided that 80% of our notes are useless, we discovered the mathematics of two things:
- The Line
- The Zero.
Oh, did I forget to show you the zero?
Here it is.
So, here we are in the lines, looking for cash. But, there is no cash. Zero.
So now, news spreads fast. On the WhatsApp circuit, the news has spread that Sweden is a cashless society.
We are now a country of Brown Swedes.
And, we are conscientious of the climate. No cash. No plastic.
Then, someone posted a video of Hitler moaning about this problem.
Here it is
Now, life gets crazy.
One day, they say you can use the old 1000 and 500 rupee notes at petrol pumps till the 15th December
Then, they say, sorry…. you can only use the 500 rupee notes
Then, on Friday they said that you can only use them till midnight! So then, there were lines at petrol pumps.
Meanwhile, as you will see from the video below – if it uploads – that the rich and crooked have got fines and loan payments waived.
Some say that he did this to control black money.
Some say that China and Pakistan were about to flood India with fake currency
Some even say that the mobile networks were not making money, so this is a cunning ploy to get people to stand in lines and send videos via WhatsApp out of sheer boredom.
Pity the person who needs to pee while standing in the line. They pee and then go back to the end of the line.
Sigh. The video not get uploaded…..
But, the lines continue, and at the end of the lines, is the zero
Don’t forget, it is we Indians who invented the ‘zero’, and gave mathematics a huge boost. We are only going back about 2,000 years or so.
Seriously. Barter works !
You see the line heading to the zero?
Well, we do have the new 2,000 rupee note. No one wants it. When the banks dish it out, we say – pleeeeeeeease…. Nooooooo…..
Give us 100 rupee notes. But, the banks don’t have 100 rupee notes.
We are back to the lines, and back to zero!
The note is pretty and pink…. But, unloved!
