With demonetization still keeping everyone and everything on their heels, the world did not fail to witness their fair share of human bizarre in their morning newspapers.
Here is a brief recap of everything unusual in news this week.
Surat Couple Spends only 500 Rupees On Their Wedding.
We have heard many things extreme happening in weddings, but what we surely never have heard about is a wedding arranged on super savings. Raksha from Surat took a cue from Modi’s ‘Chai pe Charcha’ dictates to enjoy her one special day with her husband, demonetization style.
How? Guests were only served tea!
If you are not calling the Guinness Book Of World records to document this, I am.
Indian Government Extend Credit Line To Indian Farmers
With the economy taking a severe hit post demonetization, coming to a virtual halt actually, the government continues with their trial and error method to make lives easier for the Indian farmers. NABARD will make way to extend credit worth 210 billion rupees to Indian farmers at a time when they urgently need money to sow seeds for the winter crops.
