Visiting banks these days is like going on a pilgrimage says my dear friend Clifford D’souza and he is right. You have to plan your visit in advance and be mentally as well as physically prepared to stand in long queues and people go with their families and friends these days to get their prayers answered. The satisfaction you get after withdrawing your own money is even more than when the Almighty has fulfilled your dreams which gives a pious feeling. Many people had never visited banks before demonetization and the wonderful experience (or bitter for that matter) has increased our belief in God and one should not take anything in life for granted, even if it happens to be your own money. Let us now hope that our great nation is free of corruption and a new beginning has been made with the blessings of the Almighty. We are moving towards a cleaner and stronger economy and let’s all keep our fingers crossed towards that mission. There is no such thing as black money or white money and people from here on should pay their taxes honestly so that the revenue collected can be spent by the government on public welfare programmes.
