Little was I aware of what demonetisation was all about
I was in eve possessing few of brand new notes of 500 and 1000 denominations
When the news tricked in that the currency of 500 and 1000 notes are no more valid ,
I felt like possessed by a ghost dancing around me holding those notes in its invisible hands
for a moment I felt I have stepped out of this world leaving behind all my fortunes

When the news permitting exchange of these notes tricked in
hitherto suspended breath of mine started reviving and
I found I am back from the clutches of the ghost and felt
I can again live the life all over again

I realised the Importance of having money and misery of losing money in one stroke
Attachment to money detaches one of his own identity has been amply proved by demonetisation

What lesson I could not learn in my whole life
Demonetisation taught me in one stroke that
money after all is mere paper when detached
and is gold when attached
