WATCH: Arvind Kejriwal shared this ‘demonetisation anthem’ as a must-see, and people seem to love it!

The parody of hit Raj Kapoor song ‘Jeena isi ka naam hai’ sung by Mukesh has been repurposed to highlight the pains of the move to abolish higher currency tender.

Demonetisation may have been termed as a ‘surgical strike’ on black money by Prime Minister Narendra Modi but even people supporting the move agree that there are many woes attached to it. With long serpentine lines to tragic deaths, it has been criticised for its execution. While tussle between the government and opposition continues, the common man has been trying to cope up with the ‘helpless situation’ in their own way – sometimes with humour and sometimes with sarcasm.

We have already come across many spoof videos reacting to the currency ban and very recently we saw an influx of regional songs praising the PM for the move. From Rajasthjan to Bihar, people have been shaking legs to the peppy ‘note ban’ songs this wedding season.

Now, after all fun, there is a ‘demonetisation anthem’ that’s doing round on social media. The parody of hit Raj Kapoor song ‘Jeena isi ka naam hai’ sung by Mukesh has been repurposed to highlight the pains of the move to abolish higher currency tender.

The song takes a dig at PM Modi and alleges that there’s “loot in the name of desh-prem (patriotism)”. The visual shows people standing in long queue outside bank – a symbol that has even inspired a NASA image!

The song was even shared by Delhi Chief Minsiter Arvind Kejriwal saying, “Someone sent this anthem of demonitization. U must must must hear this. Super. And share it widely.”

Agreeable or not, the catchy tune and lyrics might have clicked with the audiences and the video has been trending on Youtube since it was uploaded on November 25.

      Adorable,appreciable,amusing,and entertaining musical satire.Good effort to keep us in humour,but a very big NO to it ,if it's meant to highlight anything related with pros and cons of demonetisation.Those opposing demonetisation,are the real crooks and shedding crocodile tears,just to express their solidarity with Pappuism.I am confident,they would have preferred and cheered ' Italiaization' over demonetisation.

        RS 500 व RS1000 के 16 लाख करोड़ धन का मंथन के परिणाम स्वरुप काला-धन जनधन योजना वाले खा गए। हालां कि मंथन पर RS15,000 करोड़ व्यय होने की सम्भावना है। इतना बवाल मचा दिया की दुनिया तमाशा देख रही है। अब कौन सा ब्रह्म अस्त्र चलाने की तयारी हो रही है। lt;br/gt;सुझाव : रियल स्टेट, माइनिंग, सैंड माफिया को देखो। lt;br/gt;बड़ा सुझाव :1. इम्पोर्ट के इनफ्लैटेड बिल की 100% चेकिंग। lt;br/gt;2. एक्सपोर्ट के इनफ्लैटेड बिल की चेकिंग करे। lt;br/gt;इन तीनों पर सख्ती से 2017-2018 में कम से कम 2 से 3 लाख करोड़ मिल सकते है और वोट बैंक INTACT रहेगा।

          i don't understand one thing about kejriwal, what he is actually, what he wants, or its just a politics. they say we want a stern action against corruption, which type of stern action be like. demonetization is even if it fails is good. corruption in india is went to the roots of the society and that is true and it requires multiple of actions in experiment to cut out the roots of corruption. it pains people initially but if u want corruption free society better pull your pants up or live in a shadow of hope......
