Demonetisation in the popular imagination 

The authoritarian imagination is now pop culture: Stand Up Comics Bharti and Krishna, on Big Boss mimicking 500 and 1000 rupees notes themselves, quipping that the 2000 rupee note has chips in it that can report excess notes, shine in the dark and what else not! 
People on Big Boss being comically critical of demonetisation and PM Modi having a New Years Eve National Address. The discourse has indeed changed forever.
