The form of G.S.T as everyone knows is Goods and Service tax. Still there are questions lurking inside exactly how does this work. So let us ponder over this recurring phenomenon which has gripped us all. The implementation of this tax was made on 1st of July. But the whole idea of Goods and Service Tax was flagged originally in the year 2000 when Atal Bihari Vajpayee actually bought up the matter. The first country to view the effects of G.S.T however was France.   The main motive for implementation of this tax system was to ease the trade and industry sector with only one ‘indirect” tax being paid and the rest being subsumed under G.S.T.  For example, earlier the manufacturing of any product saw the implementation of Excise Duty and the VAT.
 Now with the G.S.T being implemented tax will be levied at every scale, which means every sector employed to do any work would get the required remuneration. Now that a somewhat clear definition of G.S.T can be understood let us ask the second question, what was the need to implement the Goods and Service tax whatsoever? Well, isn’t it making the whole process a lot more complicated somehow? As a matter of fact, it isn’t.
Earlier two kinds of taxes were paid, the direct and the indirect tax. The direct tax used to make every person responsible for his or her own payments like the income tax, but for this indirect tax certain vain excuses often used to flare up. Now the primary objective of this goods and service tax was to ease the whole process and to ensure that tax is being paid regularly.

So now we all are subjected to only three taxes
0   CGST- under which the revenue will be collected by the Central Government.
0   SGST-under which the amount collected, will be used for intra-state sales.
0   IGST- where the revenue collected by Central government will be used for intra- sales purpose.
The end results of this will surely be multifold; it only depends on our cooperation. Not only will it help us to keep the pace with other nations, but will also help us to maintain a more structured tax system. Keeping this as their main idea the bill of G.S.T was passed. Now it only depends on us for our successful cooperation.

What Daniel Fernandes's Shadows Is All About

Shadows: A Revelatory Special

I walked into Terna Auditorium on Sunday Night expecting a special set by a comedian I had seen perform live on a previous occasion and had seen videos of on YouTube. Daniel Fernandes went above and beyond that. At the outset he cautions the audience, that his self admittedly social commentary centred style of humour that has gained an instant association with him would not be a feature tonight.
His piece is a reflective one, touching upon self-doubt, his journey of self-discovery, his moment of truth and his foray into comedy. He discusses at length the various paradigms and notions of success that pervade society without sounding preachy. And how while non-conformity can be a lonely place, it isn’t the worst.
Fernandes’ takes on the mantle of a voice in our head and says everything that naturally occurs to us but social conditioning prevents us from expressing vocally.   Through an anecdotal and a canonical sense of humour, he narrates his evolving len…



“Youth is happy because it has the capacity to see beauty. Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old.”  ― Franz Kafka
It is said that the world’s two most prized gifts are the love of a woman and the beauty of youth. While we always talk about women, today let’s take this opportunity to talk about youth. Youth is the most treasured trait that a person can have, without it a person can be 45 but feel like 85. Youth or young people around the globe are always treated as not only the “future” of humankind but also looked upon as the envied lot, as their energy levels are still at their peak. So let’s take this time to learn a bit more about them:
1.The definition varies from country to country. According to the United Nations, “Youth” are the people who are of ages 15-24. However different countries have different definitions. In Nigeria youth are termed to be people between ages 18 and 35. In India, according to the National Youth Policy 2014, …

Teacher, often described as our friend, philosopher and guide, plays a vital role in everyone’s life. A teacher has the capability to guide his or her students and give them immense courage and inspiration. We all remember at least one teacher from our school throughout our lives, isn’t it? It is because he or she has been able to put an impact in your life. Teaching is an art and an educator needs to find several methods to teach the students and these ways may differ every time with each new batch of students. An educator needs to perform every day in class as per the needs and demands of the batch and we always remember the best performance althroughout. Hichki, a recent film by Siddharth Malhotra is about a brilliant teacher, Naina Mathur (Rani Mukerji) who has Tourette’s syndrome, lands a job in an elite school after several failures and rejections. She puts aside her problem and overcomes all challenges to…
