India, today, is currently going through one of it’s biggest demonetization ever. There are many pros and cons we have faced because of this historic event. But, apart from all the disorder and mad rush (in front of the banks and ATMs during currency exchange), one noticeable thing I have evidenced, is the implied discipline that has overpowered the mob psychology. Despite all the chaos, there was a queue which was naturally implemented rather than being indoctrinated. My Haiku portrays this spirit of discipline in the new democratic India.

Mad rush, trying to
maintain the row, persuaded
to be disciplined!

    Absolutely…I too observed that there was a method in the madness…hope this positive outlook continues over the days till the implementation becomes hassle free!

  • Nice

  • Good to know people are behaving at some places at least! But I read of some nasty incidents too…guess that’s what identifies us after all.

    Nice one.

  • Nice haiku. Though self-disciplined lines is not the scenario everywhere. At many places this has led to fights and people getting injured. At few places police had to intervene with ‘lathi charge’.
