Many politicians have promised CHANGE over the course of 69 years but Prime Minister Narendra Modi has gone out and given us change. Quite literally. The bespectacled leader of the world's largest democracy made an announcement that sent ripples all across the country.
Starting November 09, 2016, all Indian currency notes of the denomination of 500 and 1000 are invalidated. In a bid to curb the rampant black money stashed away in corners, the Modi government has taken this decision.
Sparking a hilarious series of reactions on social media, this issue promises to not die down anytime soon.
Social Samosa brings you a humorous summary of the internet reacting to the end of the INR 500 and 1000 notes.
1. Some men just want to watch the notes burn mitron!
2. How can Viru paaji not join the trend
In America they will count Votes.
In India count Notes.
