Dec 14th + Tax Notice for Naresh Gupta

15 Dec

Ok.. no autos in Bangalore on Dec 14. Great for driving but must have put a lot of commuters through pain.

It was 11:00 AM. I am standing at my office window looking out when I hear “CITU Zindabad” and other chants coming from down the road. The procession is causing a traffic jam. When it makes its way in front of me, I see that this “procession” consists of only 20-25 people, each carrying a flag. Now to manage them are 4 police constables and an Inspector. I wonder what it is costing the police department to have 5 people deployed here to monitor 25 guys who want a day off from work? What a waste.

Oh ya.. read in the papers today that the Adobe CEO Naresh Gupta has been issued a notice by the Income Tax Department asking him how he could afford to pay the 50 Lakh ($100K+) ransom for his son’s release. Now thats interesting… I wonder if its a new way for the IT department to get people to pay taxes… 🙂
