Few more days for GST to roll out.. Know what changes this would bring to a common household’s life.

Goods and service taxes, as the name suggests, are the taxes levied on the goods and services we consume. Currently most of these goods and services come under a taxation policy that imposes many different taxes on them like excise, VAT, service tax. If you have noticed any of your recent restaurant bills, you can find changes under various category of taxes. This is what the GST would be replacing. There would be only one category of taxes shown on such bills after 1 July 2017.    


For GST imposition the goods and services we consume are categorized under four major heads. Thus you can say that there are 4 tax slabs under GST. The following points are worth noting regarding this new taxation system:
  • The first category of goods include Edible oil, spices, tea, coffee on which current taxes make upto 9% however, GST would be only 5% on these goods. So you next purchase of these daily needs is going to be cheaper.
  • The second category is of 12% GST that would be levied on Computers, processed food on which we currently pay taxes between 9 to 15%. Thus, few goods in this category would get cheaper and few would become a bit costlier.
  • The third category of products include Soaps, oil, shaving sticks etc. which would be charged at 18% under GST reforming the current taxes that charge between 15 to 21 %.
  • The last category of goods are luxury goods and include luxury cars, tobacco, aerated drinks which are surely going to become costlier under GST which is going to charge 28% instead of currently levied taxes that make up only 21%.
  • GST will make small cars, DTH service, eating at restaurants and daily need products like soaps, shampoos, chocolates cheaper for us.
  • Buying smartphones, buying jewelry and buying or renewal of insurance is going to be costlier with GST.
  • Online shopping may also become a less goods deal with GST.
  • Electric fans, coolers, LED TVs and readymade clothes are some of the useful electronic items that would go cheaper with GST.
  • Courier services, staying at start rating hotels and eating at five starts would become costlier.
Note that road taxes and toll taxes are not part of GST so they are going remain as they are.

पत्नियों के लिए भी एक व्रत का प्रस्ताव..

अरे याद है ना.. हर साल की तरह वो प्यार का त्यौहार फिर से आ गया.. अच्छा तो आप कंफ्यूज हो गई कि ये वैलेंटाइन डे तो कब का जा चुका अब किस प्यार के त्यौहार कि बात करने लगी मैं.. बताती हूँ बताती हूँ.. अपनी हिन्दू सभ्यता में भी एक प्यार का त्यौहार होता है "करवा चौथ.."अहा, क्या उत्सव है प्रेम का. पहले प्रेम मिश्रित सेवा फिर सेवा के बदले प्रेम मिश्रित उपहार. वाह..

बाजार पट गए है डिज़ाइनर चमकदार छलनी से लेकर गोटे लगी थालियों से और होने भी चाहिए. आखिर इस कदर महान संस्कृति जिसमें पति को देवता मान कर, उनके लिए दिन भर भूखे प्यासे रहकर पत्नियां व्रत करती हैं, उनकी उम्र बढ़ाने जैसा ईश्वरीय कार्य करती हैं, उस दैवीय व्रत का इतना उत्सव तो होना ही चाहिए. और याद रहे चरणस्पर्श करना एकदम जरूरी है व्रत के नियमो के हिसाब से नहीं तो पति की उम्र से छेड़ छाड़ हो सकती है. समझ नहीं आता इतना ज्ञान आया कहा से हमारे पूर्वजो में जिससे ये पता चला कि अगर पत्नी दिन भर भूखे प्यासे रहकर चाँद की पूजा करे तो पति की उम्र साल दर साल बढ़ती जाती है? वैसे धन्य है भारतीय महिलाये. पति चाहे शराबी, जुवारी कबाबी कैसा भी हो, पतियों…

Be Healthy With Infused Water And InstaCuppa #SuperBloggerChallenge2018 #Instacuppa

Two things are in my mind mostly these days: Having a healthy Lifestyle and Staying Happy.
Happiness and good health are very much connected to each other, isn't it? If you are happy your health remains good. And if you are healthy, you keep on increasing your happiness. The easiest trick to stay healthy is to have a good water intake every day. However, as simple as it looks, for most of the people, drinking sufficient water every day is a task. They somehow ignore this very essential need of the human body. Every single cell in our body needs water to function properly. The result of less water intake is eventual dehydration, dull face, fatigue, bloating and weak immune system.

Can drinking water help you stay healthy? Spoiler alert, YES IT CAN!

Now, if you are bored of having the plane, tasteless water, then you must know about INFUSED WATER. Infused water is adding different kinds of fruit, vegetables, and herbs to water and letting it settle for some time. This way, all antiox…

The Young Chronicle - A Personal News App For Kids

Our kids these days are spending a good amount of time checking and using today's smartphone. And the most amusing thing is kids are getting, even more, smarter to understand this whole world of apps, games, selfies and video recording. In no time they understand how such and such app works. In very less time, they skill those gimmicky games and challenge us showing the score. However, this screen time should be controlled for good health of a child. For parents, it is a responsibility to keep an eye on what content kids are watching, what types of games they are playing and what things they are sharing on social media.

 Being a new generation people, we can't live separated from our phones. Neither can we keep our kids completely away from using phones. But what we can do is to facilitate things that can be helpful for kids even if they come in the form of phone apps and games. Educational apps and informative games can provide our kids much-needed insight and knowledge. One…
