We are living in a time when measures and values suddenly alter. Raqs produce yet another materialized proverb to reflect on this conundrum. You could take a stack of currency notes, weigh it, and find that its weight and value are two different things altogether. The paper might weigh two thousand three hundred grams, but its value may be zero. Nowadays, money, like a patient of dementia, still talks, but often, has no memory of what was just said.
