25 paise becomes History!

25 paise has been awarded death sentence! Yes, you won't be able to see any 25 paise coins from tomorrow.
The inflation bug has hit the currency too and RBI has decided to withdraw 25 paise coins from the market from tomorrow. Today was the last day to exchange coins with the banks or the Reserve Bank of India.

We all have so many fond memories attached to this 'chavanni' or 'nalakkane'. There were days when we used to get handful of toffees. If we go a generation back, this little coin was sufficient to fetch a basket-full of stuffs.

hi thanks for visiting my blog and your comments. Among all blogs i visited, I find yours to be more concerned and sensible. Instead of bragging about ourself or sharing whatever we feel like, you have got a social concern and the attitude to share worthwhile information. nice to visit your blog too. Many people read or visit pages but do not register their feelings. The comments help us get a feeling that we have shared the information or thoughts to someone at last.

You have got a social concern and an attitude to share useful information with others. Instead of bragging about ourself, it is always better to be resourceful and helpful to others by sharing useful information. Nice work.
