The word rupee comes from the Sanskrit Rupya or Rupa, which means silver. The very early coins before the second century B.C. were all made of silver but the coins were of any standard weight nor had any face or value printed on them. Shershah Suri first gave the name rupia to the silver coins. The last silver coins were minted in 1940 with the face of King George VI on them. In 1942, silver coin was replaced by a cupro- nickel coin for the first time. Man invented money to get power but money has become more powerful than man. All over the world, money and the power go together. The more money a person has, the more successful he is judged to be. A rich man is accepted by society even if he is corrupt or evil.

He thinks he will not be anyone’s slave but his own master.
