lot can happen in a year. A one-night stand can turn into a baby, and a shaved orangutan with insecurity issues can become President of the United States of America. Exactly one year ago, a rotting, wrinkly orange peel climbed out of America’s dustbin and became the country’s president. While America instantly began to fight the spread of orange, another country picked a fight against black money on the same day with what would come to be known as Anti-Black Money Day.
