Money oh money ...

Is it just weird me or what! I mean, I just loooooooooove holding brand-new currency notes hot off the press!

I love everything about them — oh what beauty, what crispness, what fragrance ... I'll stop lest folks think I am completely bonkers ...

I learnt recently that the Government of India had got currency notes of 100 and 500 denomination printed in Europe — and I was thinking may be that's why the notes were looking extra crisp ...

The sheer amount of it is mindboggling of course — 20,000 crores worth of 100 rupee notes meaning 200 crore notes of that denomination.

80,000 crores worth of 500 rupee notes meaning 160 crore notes of that denomination.

100,000 crores of rupees in all!!! What a large country India is ...

I don't want any of that of course ... I am only interested in attaining 'oneness' with the Creator of the Universe ... or, twoness if I am high on alcohol ...

Well, it seems the Government of India is up to its usual censoring ways ... http://online.wsj.com/article/SB126327347865425871.html?mod=WSJ_hp_us_mostpop_read It's not as bad as what the Chinese are doing in battling Google. The Internet is awash in pornography and the feeble attempts of the Govt. of India won't be able to stem the tide. The Govt. should merely restrict itself to ensuring that there's no child pornography or trafficking of humans. There are problems galore for the Govt. to worry about as it is ...
