The Ascetic and Demonetisation: Ethnographic notes from the Field 

Even Swami Sampurnanand joked about Demonetisation in a short talk on Science and Swami Vivekananda at Hindol Sengupta’s ‘The Modern Monk’ in Delhi today (10-01-2017) that the impact of Demonetisation on Ascetic life, that people who used to donate 1000 rupees, do not even donate 100 now, as small daily expenses are covered by donations. The small saved up reserves are worthless where as the wealthy are not impacted. Demonetisation is a cross cutting lived experience phenomenon, from the saint to the sinner.
