Audiappa Naicken Street branches off Mint Street. The man after whom it is named has an important link to the history of money in Madras, and to Arunachala Kavi’s Rama Natakam. To know more, join us on the #Demonetisation Heritage Walk on Sunday, Dec 4.
Cash, Panam, Duddu, Money, Money – a Demonetisation Heritage Tour And so, the debate on demonetisation rages on. During this time, why don’t we take a walk down the monetary history of Madras – from the times of the varAhan, the cash, the fanam, the duDDu, the dumree, the dubs, the hoon, the pagoda (all of them – 3 Swami, Swami, MM, Star, Arcot, Arnee, St Thomas… the list goes on), the anna, the pice, the OTTai kAlaNa, the paisa, the naya paisa, the rupee…
We have had a long and colourful history with our currency. Let us take a walk down Mint Street (where else), to explore the heritage of money in Madras, the problems it created, the communities it brought in, and the men (and women) it made famous/infamous.
Come and join historian Sriram V on a walk down money lane. The tour begins at 6.00 am on Sunday, December 4, 2016 at Mint Street. The exact location will be intimated later by email. The tour, by foot, will last two hours and will end with breakfast. Charges: Rs 600 per head.

It is Modinomics hereafter in India…and Modinomics law will prevail over Economic law for its broader and swiping reach…
If law of economics say that a cashless economy will be achieved by demonetization followed by issuance of Rupay card charged with the old value of the surrendered currency….it is infructuous after Modinomics that emphasizes cashless economy for genuine citizens only. To the unscrupulous it siphons all the new currency to ensure control on black economy by those in power.
I have transfered the money through account transfer. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
