It's not a celebration in Pakistan until someone gives you a garland made from cash. But the party's over since the government discontinued Pakistan's five-rupee bank note and replaced it with a coin.
Florists are complaining that "Now one has to pay at least 200 rupees to buy the cheapest garland containing ten-rupee notes. And many these days can’t afford to pay that much money"
By the way, 5-rupee is about 9 US cents.
