Demonetisation is the talk of the town after Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced it on November 8. The debate on whether it’s good for the people or not refuses to die down because after it came into effect, all you can see outside ATMs and banks are long queues and people discussing how difficult has life become for them in the absence of regular cash flow. The queues and woes of people also form a major part of discussion in public discourse because believe it or not, in some parts of the country, they are as long as 2-3km. In fact, reportedly, people have died standing in the serpentine queues.
Amid all the opinions floating on the Internet, there is an image that has gone viral with aptly depicts the situation of the country. Captioned, “Finally, NASA has released recent image of India,” the image shared by Twitter user @iamGinjanGrunge has been retweeted over 1,500 times and has been liked by over 1000 users. The hilarious image shows people standing in queue from south of India extending to north outside the State Bank of India!
For some strange reason, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) are both hot favourites when it comes to social media memes. Remember all times when the Indian currency note was declared UNESCO’s best and we’re sure it doesn’t even know it had! All thanks to tweeple’s imaginations. And we’re sure, just like the annual Diwali picture, NASA has no clue about this one too!
Check out the image here.

As expected, UNESCO had to come in the picture.
@iamGunjanGrunge and UNESCO has declared that this is the best photography ever ?
