Demonetisation has resulted in serpentine queues outside banks, ATMs and at other places dispensing cash. While the rich and affluent have somehow managed to dodge the long queues, it is the poor who are at the receiving end of this colossal transition process.

A photograph of an elderly man breaking down after missing his spot at a Gurgaon bank has gone viral on social media. The photograph, clicked by Hindustan Times photojournalist Parveen Kumar is emblematic of the hardships being faced by people across the country.

While the Prime Minister has urged citizens to withstand the hassle for 50 days, images like these will remain indelibly etched in our hearts.
