Yesterday, the year long search for a new symbol for the rupee, the Indian currency, was set to end. The Indian government hosted a countrywide contest to narrow the field down to five finalists.
However, on Thursday, the Indian Union Cabinet postponed its decision. The winning entry is supposed to be easy to write and remember, reflect India, and work on a computer keyboard. Not a very tall order, huh?
I like number 2, but they're probably not going to let me vote.
If I print up my own money, do I get to create my own symbol?
