I’m here at my bank. (ATM isn’t open yet).
I have picked up a Cash Deposit token. As luck would have it I had withdrawn cash just the morning of the sudden, surgical, shock&awe demonetisation. So I have some 500s to deposit back into my account.
It’s all very exciting. The bank is full of people. I was very young in 1978. This is my first time demonetising. Anything for my country. Anything for my PM. Anything being, spending the morning waiting in the bank. Such a simple contribution will help my economy.
The token system is very sophisticated. What you want to do, how old you are and so on are taken into account. And the system will call your number and assign you a token.
There is thus a surprise element built into when your number will be called. (The ecologists aren’t able to figure the algorithm out.)
I completed my quiet chanting of Vishnu Sahasranamam and Bhagavad Gita in the line. And I started writing this post when my number was called. So.. 2 hours-ish..
Apparently I could have chosen a token that would allow me withdraw money too. I didn’t know that.
I’ll make that contribution to my economy later on.
