In front of boards that read “you can help us” and “money problem”, while some members played instruments, some performed on the streets for the local people’s entertainment.

Jaden, an Australian tourist, who had come to participate in the Pushkar fair, tells the Hindustan Times:

We came here on November 8 to see the famous Pushkar fair. The same night government of India announced demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 banknotes. Whatever change we had in Rs 100 and lower denominations are exhausted.

After being turned away from ATMs and banks due to the severe cash crunch caused by the demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes, the tourists only wish to reach Delhi to get in touch with their respective embassies.
