This really shouldn't be a big deal should it?

I mean, if they know FOR SURE that this currency was destroyed by termites...couldn't the Indian treasury just print up the amount missing and reimburse the parties in question w/out adding to inflation??

I may be over-simplifying this but, why couldn't it be that easy??

That would be logical. Maybe it wasn't counted yet? Maybe the accounting book was there too, LOL. Anyway sounds like they don't know the exact amount.

Not so fast.

This isnt as crazy as it seems....a roving gang of thug termites ate a pretty good size hole in my boat and sent most of my PMs to a watery grave in the Great South Bay.

A termite walks into a bar and sits down and says, "Say, is this bar tender?" (bartender)
