#HumansOfDemonetisedIndia: In demonetised India, when people of the unorganised sector are fast losing jobes, they are finding inventive ways of surviving. A man in Trivandrum has become a hawker of old notes as his business of selling chappals and shoes on the street failed. He says “This is my new business. I’ve become a hawker of old notes. I have to support my family. When government banned notes, we have to change too. How will I change these notes? I’m sure government will change it.”
