Questions for our dear PM on Demonetisation

Mananiya Pradhan Mantri Shri Narendra Modiji,

I am not a politician and I am not involved in any chopper scam or any other scam. I have patiently waited for 50 days and supported you in every way in your decision to demonetise ₹1000 and ₹500 notes.
Now, I seek following answers as a common citizen of India. These are not only my questions but questions of 125 crore Indians.
1. How much of unaccounted cash have you unearthed?
2. What was the expense incurred to do this demonetisation exercise?
3. How much of revenue loss has been incurred by states and central governments in terms of indirect tax revenue?
4. What is your plan to revitalise the businesses that suffered due to demonetisation exercise?
5. How many corrupt officials have been caught and jailed?
6. How many people died that can be directly attributed to demonetisation.
I am seeking these answers from you directly. Perhaps live on any tv channel at 8pm? These questions may reach you through social media, electronic media, print media or from any member of parliament, member of any legislative assembly, corporator or any other common man or woman. 
These are straight forward questions. Please provide straight forward answers for my knowledge and understanding.
PS: Political spokespersons or supporters of any political party - I don't need answers from you. This is only for Mananiya Pradhan Mantriji. Hope you understand this.

Thank you
Musten Jiruwala

The Void of God

I was born with God inside me. The moment I was born, that God was removed from inside me without my knowledge and thrown away. Then religion was stuffed and hammered in its place.
As I grew up, the void of God inside me started to grow as well. I searched for something to fill this void with.
I tried to drown myself in my profession in hope that this void will go away. But, it kept on growing.
I tried to fill it with home and family, art and philosophy. But, this void grew bigger.
I tried to fill it with more religions, but to my despair, it kept on growing.
I travelled to the mountains and valleys, waterfalls and seashores and soaked in the beauty of nature in an attempt to fill this void with.
But, all in vain. The void inside me kept growing.
Finally, I tried to fill it with love, joy and peace. But, it kept on growing incessantly.
This void of God is much much larger than all the religions of the world, all the nature and beauty, all possible knowledge and skills put together.
The God that I was born with is somewhere out there and growing.
Or is it growing inside me?
