Could avarice be set on flames? You may not believe it. But it happened in India a couple of days ago. Money obtained through bribery, usury, cheating and a thousand other fraudulent ways went in flames – after the Indian government decreed that from the midnight of 8th November, higher denomination currencies like Rs 500 and Rs 1000 were no longer legal tender. Even though the government had given the option of exchanging the currencies in small number or more amount through remitting into bank account, the knaves didn’t have the courage to come out in open after discarding their masks. They were also scared of keeping bundles of unaccounted money in their residences. So, they set the bundles of money in flames, of course discreetly, as if they would dispose off a murdered man’s body.
