2 major happenings this week that had all of India talking and pin pointing, getting philosophical. First being the smog that covered almost entire north India and then the (second) surgical strike by Mr. Modi discontinuation of 500 and 1000 rupees notes.
Smog in North India
By the way it was not just north India, the similar situation was experienced in Pakistan and some part so f China as well. So, STOP blaming just Diwali for it. Though bursting of crackers is certainly not good and I personally don’t do it and in fact have been successful in implementing the cracker ban within house and with 2 other friends. Also, I really loved a forward message that I read somewhere on facebook or whatsapp. Bursting crackers is certainly not in anyways linked to celebrating Diwali. Remember there were no crackers when Ram finally returned to Ayodhya with Laxman and Sita after the Vanvasa of 13 years. The major cause of the pollution at the of the year is the residual crop waste that the farmers burn in open. After harvesting the crops the farmer are left with huge piles of residual waste that is good for nothing and take up the fields space unnecessarily. There is no environment friendly way to dispose this of. The most easy and almost free way adopted by almost all farmers is burn it.
₹500 and ₹1000 Rest in Peace
Bye bye! Some of the shared or must I say over shared jokes on social media
Gandhiji just changed his DP
Badi mushkil se sasural walon ne 500 ka note dena shuru kiya that. Ab phir se wahi 100 k note mila karega (after so many years the in-laws have started gifting me 500 ruppes now they too have a legitimate excuse to give only 100 rupee. Sorry could not find a better word for shagun :))
