This poem is written by Akshay Nandakumar (BBA.LL.B. Class of 2020)
The following poem is my interpretation of how demonetization has affected our lives and our nation and how I perceive this catch 22 situation.
To all of you who got Mitrooed like myself.
I used to ask my dad for a 500 rupee note he would happily give me one or two
Now when I ask him, he starts looking for his shoe
When the question raises
Of whether or not you approve this move
With the nation confused
Half of them saying I don’t and the other half saying I do
Forecasting the future some are painting the town red
Yet disdainfully according to others “In the future we are all dead”
Frankly speaking I don’t really have any clue
There is really nothing much we can all do
Save to adjust ourselves to this untitled Waterloo
Until then sadly some might have to stand in queue
Waiting for a miracle that would put the entire nation in the right groove…
