It has been nearly two weeks since the Government of India demonetized currency notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 causing widespread confusion and hullabaloo. The country’s opinion is sharply divided (as usual) on the issue. Many welcome it and expect the move to curb counterfeit currency, black money as well as terror funding. Yet as cash is rationed and queues at banks get longer, others bemoan lack of planning, execution and financial constraints.
But hey, today’s Monday, a new week – who knows the cash crunch will ease and the queues may get shorter? Let’s have a look at a few of the lighter moments of this crisis 🙂
A joke doing the rounds these days:
A certain section of the public, who are fond of their daily tipple, apparently petitioned the PM to either supply alcohol from banks or let beverage outlets to accept the old notes. There is no time to stand in both queues 😀
Not unexpectedly, there has been no response from the higher echelons. But there is hope. Tipplers can take heart from the revised and upgraded queuing strategies.
Just in case it isn’t clear – no need to actually stand in queue. Mark your place in the queue with a slip of paper and stone while you go about your business for the day.
No doubt where there’s a will, there’s a way and necessity is the mother of invention and oh so many more 😀
Hope you enjoyed.
A/N. Over the week, we tend to get a lot of jokes and life philosophies as shares. Some are too good to pass up. Here I share those that appealed to me or tickled my funny bone. Hope you like them too. Please note none of this is stuff is mine – I am just keeping the fun going!
If you too have something worth sharing do leave your link in the comment box or create a pingback to this post.
Have a great week ahead and don’t forget to have some fun too.

Love the creative way Keralites (?) have held their place in the spot.

Whether the three said objectives will be met or not, not sure…. but in the short term, the spending has decreased to some extent 🙂 Who knows, maybe it will be doubled or tripled later 😦
