India, collect rent, do not tax me... please

We read a lot of news about the wastage of People's tax. We know the ways in which tax is being wasted. But only those few who pay tax cries and the majority does not bother as it was not their money:-( [ this is the situation in India]

Why tax?
Tax is collected for the common expenditure of the citizens.

Why tax me more than some one who works less[earn less]?

Why tax some one who works more [i.e., earns more say Ambhani, Rajnikanth, etc... ] more than me?

Instead of taxing the citizens, country should collect rent from them. If you are a family of 4, you pay the rent for 4. If you are a family of 8, you pay rent for 8. As simple as that. Just like we paying road tax for each vehicle!

This way, the population will be controlled, voters list will become perfect, ration cards will have correct details, people will fight if they find their money being wasted as everyone pays for it!

Everyone should pay for only what he gets, otherwise this is totally unfair. One day I would like to see world currency, all people voting for every decision instead of their representatives[MLA, MP] doing[?] the job, rent per person, equality to all, understanding that not all are same etc...

confused by equality to all & understanding that not all are same ? I meant that not all are equal but there should be no special privileges.[ reservation]

Till then this remains as my dream...

Optimist cries always

When will a man be happy?
When he gets better than what he expected.

When will a man be sad?
When he gets worser that his expectation.

When will he be bored?
He gets whatever he predicted.

So how to be happy always?
Expect bad things. Always be pessimistic. Feel the power of sheer pessimism. Optimism is the root cause of all sorrow.

Consider the simple case of India Versus Bangladesh cricket match. All the Indians expect them to win easily, but if they loose - they are sad. If it was between Australia and India, we expect India to loose. And if India wins we are all very happy. If India wins against Bangladesh and looses to Australia, we are all bored.

Choose between the Sadness, boredom and happiness - the choice is yours

Saving Power

The advertisements calling for conserving of power, makes me laugh. As long as the sun continues to provide energy we will never run out of power. And we know that each atom has huge amount of energy, just that we just do not yet know how to harvest it. Necessity is the root cause of many discoveries and inventions. So let us create the necessity - please waste power.

And even if we consider having only limited power left, what is the purpose of saving power - to use it later to lead a comfy life. why not enjoy now itself? Live today. We are born to live, let us survive to die.
