Guwahati Adda: 'Queue' pareshaan hai tu? - Demonetization and Guwahati

Sidharth Bedi Varma | November 18, 2017 18:50 hrs


Scenes from an ATM late at night. The colour of the clothes is how you remember people in a queue

 

 

Green t-shirt: Poisa hobo ne till the time I get to the front of the queue?

 

Check Shirt: Ek pine there are mosquitoes, the fear of dengue and hence the kadam-taal, and on the other hand, I need cash.  Aaj kal line me rukne ka paisa milta hai. For withdrawing 4000 from the bank, I paid someone 300 Rupees commission the other day.

 

Blue vest: There’s an HDFC at ABC that’s dispensing cash. You can try there.

 

Green t-shirt: And leave my place here? No, thanks.

 

Check Shirt: But I think I’m the smartest. I hold the queue before midnight, make a transaction and then again after 12, make another one. That’s 8000 in 2 turns.

 

Blue vest: I toh need money to travel to college tomorrow. Trekker and bus-walas have refused to accept coins I don’t know why. Idiots!

 

Check Shirt: I read a story somewhere last week that it takes Rs. 7 to mint a 10 Rupee coin, like wtf!

 

Yellow t-shirt shouts: HEI! POISA SES! There’s an HDFC at ABC that’s dispensing cash!
