New currency note (bill) and the value of life

Times of India -

No matter what kind of profession we pursue, proper decision making, commitments, and discretion together play a key role in our success. Besides, we must train our mind  to get not swayed this way or that way when we pursue our goal and facing rough weather.  The following example is  worth considering:

At a  crowded seminar  presumably on  the introduction of new currency notes (bills) in the wake of demonitization introduced by the Central government in November 2015,
Scoil Pól

a speaker was holding a new Rs. 500.00 bill and told the audience that one would get it. Countless people in the audience wanted to have the new Rs.500.00 note. The speaker now crumpled the Rs. 500.00 note and asked the audience, Who wants this crumpled note? Lots of people raised their hands and did not care about the appearance. This time, the speaker went a little bit farther; now he put the note on the floor and smeared it with soil and made it look shabby. He then said,"This note is crumpled and dirty. Do you still want it?" Up went countless hands. unmindful of the shabby look of the note.


Now, the smart speaker said,"My friends, I have just showed you a very important lession No matter what I did to the note, still you wanted it because you knew well that it did not decrease in its value. Many a time in our lives, life crumples us and grinds us into the dirt. We make bad decisions or deal with poor circumstances. We feel worthless. No matter what has happened or what will happen to your undertaking,  you will never lose your value.because  are special and don't ever forget it".

01. PM Modi  announced that currency notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 denominations will not be legal tender from midnight. Both these bill be useless.

 02. The government  has decided to induct new currency notes for the same denominations with extra security features.

Strange stick-up. 

 03. The smart and quick move aims at curbing rampant corruption and tackling black money issues. It will be a great blow to the hoarders of black money, in particular, certain politicians who consider "Politics" a money-spinning business.
