2016, just like any other year, has been truly eventful in all aspects. And no wonder there were things that fell no short of surprising the people, some in ways that amused people whilst some in the most disappointing of ways.
Well, one such event which is still the hottest and the most trending topics that affected the people of India is ‘Demonetisation’. On 8th November 2016, the government of India took an action that shook the nation. With an intent of cleaning and decimating black money from India, the Modi government made a move of ceasing the old 500 and 1000 rupee notes as legal tenure. The PM of India, Mr. Narendra Modi while addressing the nation mentioned the need of taking such action and how this move would defy the corrupt in the most astounding and effective ways.
The act of demonetising had baffled the opposition and other political parties, as well known to everyone, politics has been a treasure-house for the corrupt. Thus, the appalled opposition, trying to turn the tables, marked the move as abominable and ever since, has been trying to expostulate the act by mentioning the ground problems and anomalies faced by the people in getting cash which at some part, has been correct. The central government however, still reasons itself out of it by calling it ‘an act for the people’ and urges the nation to see the long term effects of the act and how it’ll sweep corruption and terrorism out and will prove to be a building block for a ‘developed and digitised India’.
So, all we can do is hope that this proves to be helpful and effective and though the move still in controversy, it gives out fruitful and desired results in 2017. Happy New Year!

I’m focusing on reading and I am indulged in some other stuff that I assure, is productive. I’ll try to post as much as I can. This was the latest write-up.
