No longer mine

As of 8th Nov, when the elections were a hot topic in US, our PM decided to break it to our nation at a 8 pm national telecast that the 500 Rs and 1000 Rs shall be banned from use henceforth. In an attempt to curb black money, this extreme measure has been taken. I am no economist and I hardly use cash unless and otherwise required so I hope that this step helps in its purpose in the longer run. I had these two saved notes, along with other country currencies I have, as a memento. Now that these are no longer valid, I would have to deposit them in the bank and have a 100 Rs note in the memento box.

    Don’t forget to add a 2000 Rs note! πŸ˜‰
    Or you can keep these so you can sell them when you get old and they have gained antique status πŸ˜‚

    Good idea to save those R’s. Whenever they do that here I tuck away a few of those (say $1.00 bills) as a collectors item. They will be worth a lot more some day soon.

      Looks like I won’t have a choice. The banks were so crowded I couldn’t step in. Think I might end up saving them πŸ˜‰

        Tuck them away in an envelop. I have some old $1.00 and $2.00 bills and they have been out of use, here, for over ten years. I’ll give them to my grandchildren.
