I always wanted to be in armed forces and serve my country. Now that I am not in armed forces. I have another way of serving my country. I Pay my Taxes .
Big deal may say some of you. May be its not a big deal for you but I feel proud, it makes me feel connected to the soldiers on guard at front. I feel proud that, with the taxes I pay we would buy new arms and war gears. Our soldiers would be paid salaries out of it.
Though paying tax makes me feel proud, but their are some areas I don’t want my tax money be used. Some of many are
- Police officials salaries.
They are efficient enough to explore ways of earning money
- Politicians salaries,
do I need to explain ? Politicians specially the one who feed on bribe and do not contribute. Take an example of Sukh Rams alleged bribe/fraud. He returned the money to Himachalis in terms of infrastructure. Himachalis did not complain of this neta as he is responsible for the telecom revolution in Himachal Pradesh.
Am I not raising too much hue and cry for the couple of thousands I contribute in national treasure. May be , but I wish my money be used for armed forces and their support functions.
I also wish my money be used in Power sector (Generation), such that my computer be up and running 24×7.
