Surgical Strike by the King
In a certain kingdom, few rich people had illegally built huge storage tanks to store water and started selling it to the poor at unreasonable costs.
The poor had no choice but to pay higher costs. This made them even more poor.
The rich were getting richer and the poor were getting poorer.
few of King’s ministers were corrupt. They were supporting the rich people in selling water.
This was illegal as it was the natural resource of that Kingdom.
Some how the King got to know of this and he ordered them to release water to the poor.
With the help of corrupt ministers the trade continued.
So one day the king requested Sun God to evaporate all the water held by the rich and the Rain God to fill all ponds in his kingdom with clean water.
Both Sun and Rain Gods accepted the prayers of the noble king.
A surgical strike by the Sun God evaporated all the water stored in the tanks of rich people.
Next was the turn of Rain God who made sure to fill all ponds with clean and sweet water.
The king introduced collection of a nominal and uniform tax from his citizens.
Money thus collected was used to build a network of pipelines throughout his kingdom. His people were very happy as the king not only provided them clean water to them but at a nominal cost.
Thus the king ensured that not just a few but everyone prospered. But for this to happen, a surgical strike on water hoarders was needed which, could not be avoided.
Like the king in the story our beloved Prime Minister’s decision to demonetise Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes is also in the direction of bringing in equality among people of this country and eradicate corruption completely.
As responsible citizens of this great country let us support our great leader.
They say cash is king. Demonetising has taught us that cash is not the king but the purchasing power it carries with it is the king.
In my next post, I will discuss about money and the purchasing power it represents.
All the very Best.
