you are earning 2 lac a month and you are paying 20% of it as income tax.
from which angle is it "excessive"
and for the record, earning 2 lacs a month does not make you middle class, but in the top 5 percentile
for those earning 1 lac a month, the tax is 10000 a month, i.e 10%, if absolutely no deductions are taken.
They have launched Baricitinib in India at Rs. 30 a dose, whereas the imported ones cost 3000
why well done? Because they have launched it "AT RISK" . The patent holder can sue and take them to the cleaners
They #NatcoPharma do not have any guarantee for the Govt of India under compulsory licensing
But, they have taken the huge risk in the interest of the country.

Mumbai new cases drop to 140 after change in test criteria. they have stopped checking asymptomatic patients, including high risk contacts of the infected patients.
basically, fudging figures.
from we have more patients because we are testing more. to not even testing high risk people.
this is absolute failure of maharashtra Govt, who is resorting to figure fudging.
also, does this not go against testing protocols?

Personal view. Over reaction.
3 weeks will disrupt all economic affairs of the country.

On October 6, 2017, I wrote a six-page letter to the Prime Minister. The next day, I had an hour-long meeting with him…
I complained to him that in 1986, we committed a blunder by enacting a law to reverse the judgment in the Shah Bano case, and now we will repeat the same blunder if we don’t enact a law to ensure that the judgment of the Supreme Court is respected and followed.

The budgets presented by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley so far have been marked by one stark trend — taxing the rich to give out to the middle class
Jaitley's first budget presented in July 2014 was a balm for the middle class. He gave respite to the common taxpayer battered by high inflation during the previous UPA government by raising the the minimum basic tax exemption limit from Rs 2 lakh to Rs 2.5 lakh.

वो फ़िराक़ हो या विसाल हो, तेरी याद महकेगी एक दिन
वो ग़ुलाब बन के खिलेगा क्या, जो चिराग़ बन के जला न हो
ग़ुलामी को बरकत समझने लगें
असीरों को ऐसी रिहाई न दे

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
