Hi Friends,

Even as I launch this today ( my 80th Birthday ), I realize that there is yet so much to say and do.

There is just no time to look back, no time to wonder,"Will anyone read these pages?"

With regards,

Fear of Being Ridiculed ?

Many a great ideas have remained unexpressed due to fear of being ridiculed

But there have been notable exceptions

Idea whose time may not have come but that did not prevent its proponent to speak up - even at the risk of being ridiculed


Abolish Personal Income tax in order to solve the twin problems of black money and corruption , for ever


Nani Palkhiwala

Ram Jethamalani

Subramanyam Swamy

When scions of business / industry meet Shri Arun Jaitleyji today , to give their suggestions in respect of Corporate Income Tax provisions in the forthcoming Union Budget , will any of them have the courage to advocate :

*    Abolition of Personal Income Tax ( Revenue loss of Rs 2.5 lakh*Crores )

*    Reducing Corporate Tax rates with rise in no of employees ( Incentivize Job-Creation )

*    10 % of GST collection to get credited in PPF accounts of the Buyer of Goods / Services

*    GST rate increase (in coming years) to be no more than 5 % of CPI rise in previous year

*    No questions ( as to the Source ) for cash deposited in Jan Dhan Bank Accounts (  Permanent  Unlimited Amnesty  )

*    FD Interest / Dividends from Infra Bonds / SPVs to be credited to Jan Dhan A/cs

*    Introduction of 2 % Bank Transaction Tax ( Revenue gain of Rs 15 Lakh*Crores )

*    Announcement of " Start Up Act / 2015 " ( read  hemenparekh.in / Blogs  )

*    Introduction of Rs 500/1000 currency notes with embedded RFID / unique IP Address

I hope those Business Leaders / Industrialists will take courage from the fact that , initially , all ideas get ridiculed which are aimed at ,

*   Upsetting the existing Social Order

*   Threatening the vested interests

*   Destroying the cozy comfort

*   Democratizing the Economic Powers

Then a time comes when those very ideas are appreciated and , later, even admired  !

Please , do not miss your  " Tryst with the Destiny "  !
