That little has changed in over a month is distressing, disturbing and of course, inconvenient. The timing couldn’t be worse. This is marriage season that is a big deal in India and a big cash business, it is planting season and most of the farmers don’t have the cash for seeds (imagine what this means for the food supply down the road) and it’s the height of the tourist season as well that so many large and small businesses depend on. The magnitude of this blunder hasn’t hit yet.

About ninagrandiose

I am based in NYC but travel regularly to India and Mexico. Both of these countries feel like home. In India I scour the country in search of fabulous textiles to incorporate into my clothing designs. I sit back and let the ambiance and wonder of India seep into my consciousness so I can be inspired to write about what India is for me. I bring a limited number of people to India on exclusive and intimate tours of my favorite hangouts. In Mexico I take in the natural beauty that surrounds me and dance the night away. I constantly give thanks for all this and am pleased to share it all with you.

      Because I posted from my phone which I am unfamiliar with, my replies to the comments ended up as independent posts. Oh well!

    Sorry for the inconvenience. This is the way of life….most unpredictable..Things that happen in India are funny and sometimes irritating and certain other times dangerous. Because of the huge population, nobody cares for anybody and has to fend on self.

      It certainly is an inconvenience for everyone, not just little ole me! It could have been so easily avoided with better planning. I know that I am stating the obvious…but why wasn’t it obvious to Modi as well?

    Glad that I started seeing your blog which we were missing for sometime. How you are able to manage the demonetisation? .

      The lump sum that I started with has dwindled considerably. I now change small amounts with the local money changers. When do you think that the cash flow will be back to normal?

    Nobody knows. As per the financial experts it may take 3 to 6 months.Thanks for your prompt interaction
