Re: Neutering & Defanging Chinese Threat (15-11-2017)

No sir, I still feel deep down, all of us are corrupt. My father was a career beauracrat and he said a small fish cannot swim against the river tide. What do you think will be the first question that we will ask when we clear ias and get posted? What is the percentage.

Re: Currency Demonetisation and Future course of Indian Economy

I thought if they show 45 lakhs as profit within a year on property sale - they attract a sizable tax... yes but it is exempt if you reinvest in another property within one year. if you keep it for two years, capital gains is just 20%. Anyways, even a cut of 20% is acceptable if the bribe money get...

Re: Currency Demonetisation and Future course of Indian Economy

This is the doing of the state govts. They deliberately keep the guidance value very low.

One IAS/IPS or KAS Babu will buy it with 45 lakhs cash and the rest with white money a...

Data should always be extrapolated unless there is a change in the way data is collected between the increasing phase and decreasing phase. The error in data collection would even be there in the ascending phase and we should only concentrate on the pattern.

Actually if a p8i can drop torpedoes, why can't a missile drop it? There will always be a detecting and tracking platform nearby to provide the information to the torpedo once it is dropped. This I think is just seperating the detecting and dropping platform. A 600km travel by a mach5 missile takes ...
