Aargh Diaries - Service Tax Campaign and Mothers

The Service Tax Ad Campaign tells the children to ask their Father if he has paid Service Tax. Why just Father? Why not parents?

Is it because there are no mothers out there who may have to pay Service Tax? Now thats not possible, since I know a mother who pays Service Tax.

So I went and asked that lady, if she felt insulted, by this hmmm, lack of recognition.

She retorted "Insulted? No. Perhaps the Central Excise Department thinks, the mothers dont evade the Service Tax and hence no need for the children to remind their mothers."


Post no.


  1. LOL... funny.. our govt. still doesn't think that women earn too! And our women... most of them still governed by patriarchic family system!

  2. Hey Gaya,

  3. Ammayya, nice to see a new post. Was tired of seeing "Good news or bad news" whenever I clicked on your site ;-).

    I already pay heck of a tax anyways, and it all goes to some weirdo politician's pocket :-p. So if there's no service tax for women, hey, I for one am ok with it ;-).
