Things to do:
1. Write a short note on ‘money’.
Ans. We all need money to buy things and to pay people who work for us. Today we use money in the form of coins and notes. In India we use coins of one rupee, two rupees, 5 rupees and ten rupees. There is even a coin of twenty rupees in circulation now. We use notes of ten, twenty, fifty, hundred, two hundred, five hundred and two thousand rupees. But different countries use different coins and notes. Their money is known in different names. In the USA it is called cents and dollars, in UK it is called penny and pounds. Paper money was first used in China about 1000 years ago. Paper money or notes have no value of their own, but a note is a ‘promise’ to give that much money. Paper money is printed only by the government. You must use your notes carefully. You should not write on the notes or tear or crumple the notes, or damage them in any way. You should also be careful when you spend money. People have to work hard to earn money!

Ans. Hello! I’m a hundred rupee note. Now I look worn out but about 10 years ago I was printed at the Currency Note Press in Nasik. At that time I was bright, beautify and attractive. From there I was taken to the Reserve Bank of India along with my other companions. We stayed there for a few days, but then we all got separated as we were sent to different banks. I was taken the State Bank of India. By the next day I was handed over to a business man Mr. Bharat. Soon I found myself being exchanged for goods and services. But now after 10 long years of service I am back in the Currency Note Press in Nasik to be sent to the recycle department and made anew. So bye-bye for now, till we meet again.
