Dear evasive 2k,
You double dholki, you! You’re clean and yet, you’re also black. You are the embodiment of social transformation, economic reform and the lighthouse of controversial change.
And yet, you are also dirty and found in numbers so huge that lone cars and hidden vaults are unable to contain you.
You were introduced so that terror would slink away with its tail between its legs.
You were revealed to the adulatory public as whitewash … washing black money and making it white, leaving a trace of pink behind.
But, you magically became black. The one thing you were meant to curb has now become a dirty river in full flow.
Not only has the earlier black become plywood. The current black, sorry pink, has become the most elusive little thing. The hottest. In demand. Ticket to survival. For the poor. What a fine reputation you’ve earned for yourself in 34 days.
You are the symbol of a ‘little inconvenience’ but an alchemic, gilt edged distant future.
The problem is this new black stain. It’s refusing to wash away.
