Tenaliram's Wit......

The following is one of those incidents involving Tenaliram and Raja Krishnadevaraya where-in the undisputed winner was obviously Tenaliram.

The Sage:

Once the village where Tenaliram lived had a severe drought. There was no water left even for drinking. During this period, when the drought was at its peak, a Sage arrived in the village by-chance from elsewhere. As the sage entered the village, the villagers experienced sudden torrential rains. By default, the villagers thanked the sage for his superstitious entry into the village.

At this, Tenaliram went up to the sage and said, "Sage, please, hope you know about the old date tree...". In return, the sage just smiled. The other villagers present there were quite perplexed. One of them asked Tenaliram, "Dear Tenaliram, we couldn't comprehend the meaning of your sentence..."

Tenaliram narrated the story quite mockingly, "Once a crow sat on an old date tree, and the dates in that tree fell on the people below. So, the people declared the crow is the culprit."

The people realised what Tenaliram meant. He had appealed to the people that co-incidence is not a miracle. And the people praised him too for that. Tenaliram had easily cleared the people's mind of all their superstitious views!!!

Indian IT Law SUCKS!!!!

Yet another new budget, yet another set of critics. And this time, I'm one of them. It is really an unnecessary post if people are already acclimatized to the Indian IT. But, let me help those of you who want to find a new job. I suggest, you all open up your own business rather than becoming an employee.

P. Chidambaram, the mastermind crimi, err.... I mean finance minister for India, has so cleverly brought out some rules in the Indian Budget that was recently pulled out. It really has spelt a clear cut end to all the possible tax evasions from direct salary. Any possible savings can be done on the income which the person doesn't show on his tax declarations.

All PAN holders are eligible for only Rs. 2 Lakh per annum as a Non taxable amount in his remunaration. That provided the person saves Rs. 1 Lakh per annum in some of the Govt. recognised savings schemes. Overall, the person should be literally dead for the period of his savings until they give back the returns. Why am I saying dead? Just keeping ourselves alive with Rs. 1 Lakh in a Metro like Bangalore would certainly mean that ther person literally has one decent meal.

Calculating all the tax components would also be done on the Flexible Allowance Basket that most companies should promote like House Rent Allowance etc. Finally, even though the savings are done for ourselves, we can't eat immediately. It is like, give the govt. 30% of your food unless you can save some of it for tomorrow. Either way, you are the immediate loser. Maybe people can really enjoy in the future. But what about now?

So dudes, just go out and open your own enterprise. Just make sure that you have a decent accountant who can guide you ways of saving money.
