RBI has announced a new version of ₹100 currency notes. But that’s not the big news folks! The new notes are –hold your breath – lavender in color! Welcome to the ‘ too-colorful-to-be-currencies family’! The notes will have the motif of ‘Rani ki Vav’ (a stepwell situated in the town of Patan in Gujarat) on the reverse.
If you haven’t got over the orange coloured Rs.200 notes, there’s another shocker. Demonetization created ripples all over the country. With the continuous incoming of new currencies and people always being confused about whether the old ones are still valid or not, it’s all been haywire. And now the new notes are lavender? For real?

Like me, Twitter didn’t know what to make of the lavender notes. So, they dealt with it the way they always do –by trolling! From comparing it to Monopoly to LGBTQ, Twitterati didn’t leave any stone unturned.
Here’s the hilarious way in which Twitter is dealing with this:
1. Maybe you should get new friends?
Things which change there color frequently

2. At least they’re making the crisis brighter!
Rupee falls to life-time low of 69.05 against US dollar, what measure is government taking?

3. Vo bright blue vala nhi h kya?

4. Now, that’s a theory no one thought of.
We're really trying hard to win UNESCO's tackiest-currency contest, aren't we? #100RupeeNote : Chemical Blueberry #200RupeeNote : Radioactive Mango #2000Rupee : Blinding Rani Pink
Could be a part of that #Demonetisation stupidity too. Make cash so ugly, that no one wants it.

6. It’s better than going through a dark patch in life, right?
Next time when we see someone counting a bundle of new 100 rupee notes, can we say that they are going through a purple patch?

11. Masaba, is that you?
With the turquoise coloured 50 rs notes and the new lilac 100 rs ones coming in, I am convinced that the @RBI has a chic, feminine currency designer. #RBI #Currency #Indian

14. It’s like the time when black and white TVs were replaced by colors and everyone got obsessed with COLORS!
There's a new ₹100 note coming out soon and looking at all the new bills, my designer mind thinks maybe, just maybe, this is a terrible case of CMYK gone RGB. #Rupee #100RupeeNote pic.twitter.com/gPTxGWEebi
