People have been battling demonetisation woes, long queues outside banks and ATMs and the diffculty of securing some cash in hand all with a plethora of jokes and memes. If spoof videos like that of Hitler reacting to demonetisation were not enough, we now have a collection of songs reacting and mostly celebrating PM Modi’s move.

The decision to abolish higher currency notes has mostly affected people getting married this season and we have seen ample jokes and bizarre gifting ideas to the brides and grooms. Remember the IOU (I Owe You) envelopes being presented by guests? Or Harbanjan Singh’s idea of gifting the newly married couple card swiping machines? Well, wedding and note ban have created a deadly laughing-combination.

    All the songs highlight the fact that the common people not only appreciate the demonetization but are also willing to back it with their efforts.All the artistes deserve applause for spreading awareness all around.This only shows our democracy is highly discerning and does not mind being vocal to support moves in national interest.This unity can put anybody opposing in awe.
