While most people are struggling to make ends meet, a bizarre incident has left many gaping on the Internet. Witnessing a currency shortage for the second consecutive day, shopkeepers performed ‘aarti’ to please the “ATM deva” in Kanpur with a thaali of flowers and lamp. Yes, you heard that right.

“Reports have been pouring in on Wednesday morning from different pockets of the country, where individuals have visited ATMs in the hope of withdrawing money, but came back with empty wallets,” a 1.02-minute clip posted by ANI read on YouTube.
