Even with the government and the authorities repeatedly attempting to calm the nation's nerves, there doesn't seem to be an end to the concern of a tomorrow. 

However, Heeraben Modi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi's mother, a centenarian in her fragile and delicate health, did her part by standing in a queue to exchange demonetised currency for Rs 4,500 at a bank in Gandhinagar in Gujarat on Tuesday. 


With demonetisation racking up the nation, Heeraben Modi wearing a white cotton sari reached the bank to extend her support and the decision that her son and the Prime Minister of India took, to put an end to supply black money and curb corruption in India. 

Heeraben was given a new Rs 2,000 note, five bills of Rs 100 and two bundles of Rs 10 each containing 100 notes each. She waved the Rs 2,000 note to journalists waiting outside the bank.
