Budget 2012

16 Mar

Once again the people of this great nation have gathered around TV sets, Radios, Discos etc to watch our most honorific and respected Finance Minister present yet another budget for the common man (as I have mentioned before ALL budgets in India have been for the common man). As a member of the seventh estate, I am obliged to write about it (in addition to adding serious tags that will bring people to this site).


There is a great enthusiasm among people to:

1. Watch the Budget Live !!

2. Watch all the news programs simultaneously have “exclusive” interviews with the finance minister

3. Analyze ad-nauseum with friends and family

4. Read multiple newspapers the next day…

..all this for something they cannot control and will find out the next day anyway.

Here are my previous analysis (I seem to do one every two years)
