My Story : When I Met Ex-RBI Governor In Delhi Metro, Simplicity At Its Best

‘Sir, I think I have seen you…, whats your name sir.?”
‘Reddy’….

‘Sorrry..??’
‘Reddy..!!’

“You mean the previous ‘Governor of Reserve Bank of India,
Y V Reddy??
You mean the currency right now I am holding bears your signature?”
He smiled…..

“Sir, May I take your photograph?”
‘You can find them on Google.., rather.. take your picture with me”..

“Thanks.”

————————
Got a chance today to match shoulders with the retired RBI Governor, Y V Reddy on board Delhi Metro, while returning back from office.
He held the post of Governor of Reserve Bank of India from 2003 to 2008 & I found him travelling in the Delhi Metro today in such simplicity as a dust, unfazed by the inconspicuousness of the people around him..!!

He’s currently the chairman of 14th Finance Commission of India, a body constituted under the India Constitution every 5 years to decide the allocation of finances between the Centre & State.
Hats off…!!!
