Rs 500 & Rs 1000 Currency Ban Change Many Life

I was watching television, suddenly news flashed Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address nation at 8 pm. on 8th November 2016. This was of course big news so news channel started their analysis and what they analyzed was Prime Minister could announce war against Pakistan. What ??? War??? How can it possible??? There is no scene of war I murmured into my mouth. Anyway I wait for the 8 pm and listened speech of Prime Minister. When speech starts it was sounds like Man Ki Baat rather than WAR AGAINST PAKISTAAN...

Between his speech, Prime Minister takes a long pause and announced -  today by midnight all 500 and 1000 rupees notes will be ban by the government to control Black money, Fake currency and corruption. Prime Minister assured everybody who has legal money, no need to get scared. Bank will change old currency with new currency...

I was happy indeed coz I too one of them who wants to control in corruption. I slept happily after listen news. Next morning, when I saw how innocent and commoners are suffering by this decision I realize this is not so easy. People who are traveling from one place to another, especially for medical emergency, had no small currency and India is still not that technical that everyone could use technical medium of payments...

In market, I met my uncle he was going to bank. My uncle told me his wife gave him 27 thousand rupees to deposit in bank. With lots of complaints he tells me - she hide this to me. Never tell me anything about this money and now when she scared with waste of money, came to me and says please deposit this money too. With tons of nagging and complains he off to bank...

But left me with few memories and thoughts. My uncle was nagging coz auntie didn’t tell him about her secret money…

My mummy was also one of them who saved money secretly. I was the only person who knew about her secret. She always spent this secret money to my and my brothers studies…

My mummy or auntie is not only women in India who save money secretly for bad time or for an emergency. In every house of India or may be all over world, women save money secretly for emergency time. When Prime Minister announced this decision, many women shared this secret to her family members and all treated her as a criminal but they don’t realize she is not saving money for herself for her own entertainment...

May be decision is good for country and I also hope that decision should be good for the country but many emotional wires has been cut for sure...


  1. it is hilariously true..."black pot money"of many house wives came out that day (including mine ;)

  2. A tough decision but hopefully good for us in the long run!

  3. 1,000 sounds like a lot to me!
    We use 1 as our decimal currency in Malaysia.
    Thailand uses 10; Japan 100; Indonesia 1,000!
    Everyone's like a millionaire in Indonesia!

  4. I've been reading about this in the international news but hadn't thought of that aspect.

    By the way, something on your blog is causing an obnoxious pop-up advertisement to appear when I try to comment...

    1. I have no idea what's happened and why advertisement pop up... sorry for this and please let me know how can I control this coz when I comment on my blog nothing pop up...

  5. I think the Prime Minister of India has made a wise decision.

  6. I didn't realize the turmoil that banning certain currency would cause, but I can understand why the decision was made.

  7. So much better than the war for sure, but feel sorry for those who have saved money for the rainy days. Hope the good result of that policy in the meantime.


  8. This is a brave move - hope it works!
