Every year on march 31st, or march 30th . Contractors face the nightmare of if the bills are going to be paid or do they have to face an uncertain date months later for the payment.

It happens this way every year as bills are not generated on completion of work, but at a later date, infact measurements are done later, all of these clogs to last two weeks of march often the last week.

When a lot of blame game goes on.

Perhaps the resolution to it is , contractors should be trained to generate a bill, all quality checks and verifications may be done independent of the bill generation and payment.

Digital India Sat, 21 Jan 2017 07:19:59 +0000 Read more →

Digital India a mission which is not clear.

Why digitise ?

Computerisation of govt offices brought lots of computers to govt offices which are often just machines for dtp work and no more.Files continue to be on paper and thus it has not had any major impact on files being clogged on babus desk.

Thus computerisation has helped Intel more than anyone else.

Digitisation ?

I have had to convert my VAT to GST for which a Digital signature is must, i.e Rs 1000/- for 2 years 

What really is the benefit ? I am yet to figure out the really good aspect of it.

During Demonetisation drive in order to hide the mismanagement of it mModi said to go cashless which was actually a big blunder.

Demonetization of Indian currency Rs500 and Rs1000 Sun, 27 Nov 2016 08:44:29 +0000 Read more →

Demonetization of Indian currency has created chaos, There is an estimated 70 deaths which according to the news flouted in facebook and whatsapp are due to nonacceptance of Rs 500, and Rs 1000 currency and limitations in banking operations.There were reports of people who died while waiting in queue in bank.
Queue in bank extended to streets and queues lasted for hours,there are videos on social media showing people fighting in line and people in queue being caned by security or police.

During the initial days all markets were nearly empty,infact there was drop in prices of shares, i forgot to track its impact on sensex and nifty. Supermarkets were empty and buses were plying with few passengers, which are usually crowded.People went panic for change, and most were unwilling to part with change this caused further shortage and worse still the currency which was exchanged for these Rs500 and Rs1000 were Rs2000/- which quadruppled or doubled the shortage of change, causing people further agony to the people who already had this nasty surprise.

There are tell tales that it may take about 6 months for the conversion of old Rs500/- and Rs1000/- into New Rs2000/- and Rs500/- as it is the estimated time for printing these currencies. This clearly points out the inability of the govt to handle this change.The outcome was that it effected the poor and atleast in appearance it did not effect the superrich.

Social media had people justifying it and people criticizing it.People justifying it were mainly the bhakts and they went at their best to silence the critics as if in a do or die battle.Intolerant to this chaos meant anti national or affinity to pakistan or as what modi himself said people who cry are those with black money.

Black money the guerrilla villain in this story was in radar of govt’s for long but there was nothing considerable that these govt’s could do.There have been attempts to extract the swiss bank account details for really long they were futile and NDA -II promise of bringing back the black money and having 15 lakhs in every citizens account never happened, infact it was rumored that those accounts are empty as if when NDA – II was elected the money has been taken to a safer heaven.

Demonetization drive initiated on nov 8 turned the focus of black money from what is stacked abroad to money which is unaccounted, it may not be actually black money (black money is supposed to be counterfeit printed in pakistan and bribes taken by politicians, bureaucrats, and govt officials) but the money that is not income tax return filed.This actually meant that people on the lower income group who may have been saving up are going to face the horror of income tax.

Pole dance, an art form by Anastasia sokolova Fri, 02 Sep 2016 11:58:26 +0000 Read more →

Pole dance was often referred as a raunchy act in bars, recall the movie barbwire by pamella anderson. Although she is described as someone who gave distinction to swimsuit – lifeguard – baywatch (T.V shows by reviewers).But barbwire and pam gave it a pervert opinion than a desirable talent and art form.But Anastasia made it appear a art form.

From the Youtube viral videos “Ukraine has got talent” where in the video Anastasia sokolova mesmerizes the Audiences and the Judges. Watched the video with awe and respect for an act which was unknown and was an ART, not a pervert performing some craziness.

Anastasia is into pole dance schools.
Facebook page reveals more of her and her talent.
