GST -illustrated by BIRTHDAY business
(( Based on a whatsapp message I received. Thanks to the anonymous author)
Suppose it is my son’s birthday tomorrow,
I buy sweets to give to all the children in his class,
And gave it to your son for proper distribution,
And next day morning we all wish him birthday .
He starts to his school after that and his classmate Tintu,
And his mother who are our neighbours meet him at our gate ,
And he dutifully gives them one sweet each and when he reaches,
The school , he gives one sweet to his security uncle at the gate.
Then he distributes one sweet each to his teacher ,
And all his class mates making them all happy,
But his best friend Gaurav was absent that day,
So Tintu gets two sweets and Gaurav no sweet.
Let us look this distribution as his business,
The sweet is the tax that he pays, What we gave,
To Tintu and his mother is the local tax,
What he gave to security uncle at gate is security tax,
What he gave to teacher and class mates is service tax,
The addition sweet that Tintu got is the sur charge .
When school principal came to know of his business,
Where some one gets two and some one nothing ,
He introduced a new rule in the school that,
All sweets are to be given to him for distribution
