Rain and taxes, what more could I ask for?
Wild, mad, energy-on-high rain. Rain that is just- well, Mumbai rain.
A sheet of water. Any resistance is futile.
Of course there is water logging, AND the possibility, always the possibility, of flooding.
You might as well sing a song. And carry on. Quick march. Find a way.
Specially if there is a transport strike, the way it was y'day.

DTC-R. That's the direct tax code, revised.
Still trying to come to grips with it.
Good, bad or ugly? Don't know.

I've just paid my taxes too, Austere. Not talking about the 'revolutionary tax' to Google/Blogger, but about REAL taxes. :)

Cross my fingers and toes so that there are no floods...

Stopped by to say "Hello". Seems I've been missing a lot. I do hate to lose an opportunity to be rightiously angry,

Bad Goggle, bad bad google, bad dog. Go sit in the corner. No supper for you until you bring MJ and Leni's blog back!

PS The little one is no two months old. I often wonder what things will be like ten to twenty years from now. I hope he will be a voice of reason for his generation.

Leni- in your country, how long does it take to get your own money back if the govt owes you?

norrbu- is it the season yet?


nimh:fabulous! See I got a shot of pure positive energy just by having you comment. I'm sure google will afford us several opportunities to swat it. Your son is a hero, will be a hero, positive, upbeat and terribly intelligent. Above all, humane.
