Mr Vijay Mallya - Dare to be different
It seems that Mr Vijay Mallya has become topic for this month and now before I give my comment on Mr Mallya, which is very different and few of you might not agree, let me remind you about Satyam scam of rupees 14000 crores, Commonwealth scam of rupees 70000 crore and Waqf board land scam, which is almost 12 times more than that of Mr Mallya.

These are just 3 out of top 20 scams in India and let me ask you all a question that what these people related to the above three scams have given to common public.

I feel nothing, but, what Mr Vijay Mallya has given us is India's first luxury airline designed for common people, the Buddh circuit brought F1 racing to India's map, not only he showed old people how to age with style, but, also told the world that India too can have the quality of Spain and Germany in matter of beer at affordable price.

Mr Mallya attempted the things when everyone was playing safe. Now I am no one to judge him - whether he is right or wrong- at present without knowing the in-depth facts. All I know is when someones Good deeds surpass its bad ones, that person certainly deserves another shot.

It made me to think that it's funny to see how people have to struggle for just Rs 3 to 5 lakhs of loan for education, hospital to provide financial support to their family members and the irony is that they have to show a good amount of asset for it. I mean if you have good amount of asset why would one need such small loans!

I think all schools and hospitals should be targeted first who take crores of money in the name of donation and a middle class mother who's kid is brilliant in studies is not even let to enter the gate of premium schools. A certain class of people can donate millions of rupees or gold to temples, churches etc. where there is no control or clue on how it is being used, but, the cannot spend it for society's welfare.

Few months back I saw Jaguar cars claiming that the smoke coming out of their cars is far cleaner than the air of few metro cities in India. Wow!!

Let's not take the easy way by saying stop this …..that...I m little doodle duu n I suggest to stop those too...rather than brainstorming and putting a creative solution to action.

Two quick questions: isn't India's tax system so frustrating that it pushes person to mental state that he doesn't want to pay (and countries far rich than India in GDP has much lenient tax system), secondly...rich criminals….so...who exactly made them richer?

My point of bringing up these random topics is that we need to get our facts clear first and stop being penny wise and pound foolish.
