Who says Delhi-ites lead a busy life?There are five ATMs located around my office. After the re-monetization, I have noticed a peculiar trend. I am mentioning this trend.
Immediately after the announcement made by our Prime Minister on 8th November, 2016, people faced some difficulties to withraw money from ATMs. However, gradually the condition has almost returned to normalcy. The cash is more or less available in the five ATMs which I have mentioned. However, I have noted with curiosity and amusement that out of these five ATMs, there is almost no queue in front of three ATMs , even if cash is available there. However, we always notice long queues in front of other two ATMs.
This is simply because of the fact that direct sunlight comes to the courtyard where these two ATMs are located. Many people including young men and women stand in the queue, enjoy the sunlight, take peanuts and chat/gossip. Nowadays, even the private sector authorities have become very lenient when the staff seek permission to withdraw cash.
As a result, when people urgently require cash, they go to any of the other three ATMs, and withdraw cash immediately.
Who says Delhi-ites lead a very busy life? Who says they don't have time to chat?
