News18 Daybreak: One Year Of Demonetisation

Remember that heartbreaking photograph of a man who broke down when he lost his spot in the queue of a bank after waiting for days? Nothing has changed for the 79-year-old Army veteran a year after demonetisation. This is what his life is like. 

A day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi met DMK chief Karunanidhi in Chennai, the party decided to cancel its protest against demonetisation. Just a random act or shall we read more into this?

A public health emergency was declared in New Delhi as a choking blanket of smog descended on the world's most polluted capital city. Primary schools in the state will be shut for the day. We had a live blog on what happened after the city woke up to a 'severe' air quality. In case you missed it, we got your back. 

What happens when a T-20 match is reduced to a gully-cricket-like 8-overs-a-side clash and it rains heavily? Well, India wins.  Thanks to the Indian bowlers who held on to their nerves in a rain-curtailed decider as the hosts edged out a spirited New Zealand side by 6 runs to clinch the T20 international series 2-1.

Watch out for:

It's been a year since the Narendra Modi led government announced demonetisation. The government is going to observe 'anti-black money' day today--  sending its key ministers and leaders across the country to brief on the achievements of demonetisation, several protests have been organised by the opposition leaders. Watch out for a lot of political drama today. Follow #1YearOfDemo on our social channels for all updates and live coverage.

Agree or disagree?

“A known evil is better than an unknown good,” is what a DMK leader told Zakka Jacob when asked about a potential DMK-BJP alliance in the run up to 2019. It seems like the winds of change are once again blowing, from the South upwards. Zakka Jacob explains here why DMK and BJP are cozying up to each other. 

LK Advani, the BJP patriarch turns 90, joining that rare league of politicians who despite the rough and the tumble of politics remained active in their 90s - both physically and mentally. Sumit Pande sheds light on why Advani continues to adapt and evolve.
