Kuch toa huva hai, kuch ho raha hai……


No Dream, FM’s Budget is for ‘Real’. Rated ‘Outstanding’. One thing is sure that increased thrust on education, agriculture and infrastructure could contribute to higher rate of long term economic growth and increased employment. As most of the readers must have read on our main sambhaav site, I think the Budget waves a magic wand to evoke mixed opinions and especially the announcement of 0.01% tax on withdrawal of Rs.10,000/- in cash in a single day, stumps all. A tax on Honesty! How about more dumping of legal cases in trash box waiting to be solved with Cheque Bounces? Isn’t this Budget Sugar with Spice? Sweet smelling Roses with thorns! I noticed that the Budget has been anti-farmer too – more benefits for upper class but nothing much for farmers and labourers. Mixed Opinions, mixed reactions but one thing is commendable – ‘the fairer sex’ has magic spell on our Union Finance Minister. Reduction of excise duty on imitation jewellery, elimination of custom duty on cooking gas and raising the threshold exemption tax limit for women, FM’s been devoted to female gender. Whew! P. Chidambaram’s wife did mention to a news reporter earlier that ‘Shobha De finds my FM husband ‘most sexiest’ man in India”. And woww, the whole race gets the slice:-)

Lastly, did I mention ‘Amaru Amdavad’? (For NRIs, well its Amaru America and Apnu Amdavad) The FM has announced labeled it as ‘Mega City’. The big surprise came when Mr. Chidambaram mentioned Ahmedabad in line with Mumbai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Chennai and Kolkatta while passing Grants. Whoaaa….now don’t ever dare to call our CM Mr. Narendra Modi, a hypocrite. Unki nazar NRIs pe hai par dil hai Gujarati and yeah, he proves from various angles that he cares for Amaru, Apnu Amdavad. Leave behind the grudges of the past – whatever past may be, may be…..The future is ours – Do You Believe?

If so, see the comment click down below? Shoot your comments – Say what you think, say what you believe – Afterall, it’s apnu ‘Bharat’.

The PM’s all praise for the Railway Budget and contrary to the general reaction, most industry and business organizations have hailed Mr. Lalu Prasad Yadav’s R Budget as ‘Customer friendly’. Lalu’s speech has turned poetical as he says, “Sirf hungama khara karna mera maksad nahi, meri koshish hai ki ye surat badalni chahiye” and as he touched the subject of modernization, by 2010, he dreams trains would run at 150 kmph with his modernization plan costing around Rs.24,000 Crores! Now one wonders, Can Indian Leaders ever dream? And if they do, would their dreams turn true? Whatever will be, will be, The future is ours to be.......! Did I mention 'Puppet on a string' Well, let there be less wit and more poetry in Lalu's speech but a sure appealing to unemployed! Full Concession in Second Class!
