A. R. Rahman’s new song captures impact of demonetisation

Mumbai: A. R. Rahman’s new single “The Flying Lotus” was released today and the Oscar-winning composer said through his single he wanted to show people’s “admiration and resentment” towards demonetisation.

Last year on November 8, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the biggest-ever demonetisation exercise India has ever seen by suddenly withdrawing Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes from public use in a bid to clamp down on black money and fake currency menace, a PTI report said.

“November 2016 was an interesting phase for India as the government announced demonetisation. As India continued to rise on the path to progress, what were its citizen’s feelings? And what about the impact of demonetisation on ordinary folks?” Rahman said in a statement.
