The country has gone into a frenzy after Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s announcement last night in which he declared that notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 stands abolished from November 9 midnight. The step is taken primarily to tackle the issue of black money floating in the country.

“A few people are spreading corruption for their own benefit,” he said, adding that “corruption and black money is (sic) something we have fought for immediately after assuming office…There is a time when you realise that you have bring some changes in society, and this is our time to feel the same.”

While social media is abuzz with their opinion, apprehensions, jokes and memes on the move, we have author Chetan Bhagat sharing his piece of mind as well. Unfortunately, as it has happened in the past, whenever he tries he cracks a joke or tries to make a point, Twitterati have a knack of trolling him instead.

“Ladies and Gentlemen, cash, is the new trash,” he tweeted and while it’s a pretty good one-liner inspired by popular American TV show ‘Orange is the new Black’, people on social media had other things to say and preferred to comments on his books instead!

“No sir, your books still win” wrote a user. “So name for ur new novel #HalfDenomination?” wrote another user. It’s interesting how when it comes to Chetan Bhagat, no matter what the topic is, everything boils down to his books!
