We have tried to balance the sentiments of the citizens all over the country. The more to demonetize the 500 and 1000 Rs notes in order to stem the scourge of corruption did not leave the masses unaffected. While the people who loaded black money did have a wake-up call, the sudden turn of events affected those who had small savings as well, the housewives, small time vendors, even honest citizens, no matter their economic status. Thus, it has been an upward struggle, literally therefore, the mountain that has the rough outline of an indian map has many people clambering towards the tree that sprouts the new 2000 Rs notes the fallen notes depict the obsolete 500 and 1000 Rs notes. The tree itself, standing tall with the backdrop of a vibrant horizon depicts the country standing strong and sprouting hope even in the light of the events. The water flowing down depicts the cleansing of the system with the murkier waters being washed away by a cleaner spring.

Where the guy is a thinker with a kaleidoscope of thoughts, the girl is a dreamer with just as much of a colorful imagination, and there is the love of sports on one side and on the other side, the love of shopping and cycle rides.

    Show is good, but they collect 49rs for kids above 3 years. More over security folks inside the cake show are rude and were forcing people to just see and move. When you pay Rs49 per head, you ought to have few minutes to see!

    It was a very disappointing experience for me. I am a wheelchair user and when I went there there was completely no accessibility. Neither there was a ramp nor friendly staff. Each cake is placed on a platform which has to be mounted by a flight of stairs. On speaking to the management I received a rude response which stated that ” One in one lakh visitor comes on a wheelchair so we can’t help.” When such an exhibition is hosted in a large city like Bangalore, it should be conducted in such a manner that it takes everyone into consideration. There is no point in giving so many advertisements if you cannot accommodate physically challenged people. I feel humiliated. This is just an unnecessary hype. Despite the “accessible India campaign launched by our Prime Minister this is the scenario. What’s the point of conducting this for the past 42 years?
