This is my first attempt at creating cartoons. I have used http://www.toondoo.com/ for this, thanks to Debajyoti for the idea. 🙂

      Thanks debajyoti. 🙂
      There is an option at the bottom right corner. I haven’t explored it properly too. I think after a point, the choices will be limited.
      Haha! It’s all right. There must be some problem in notifications.

    Once people dont care for suicide tax, we could await the Heaven Tourism Tax as well.. or an Entrance Ticket to Heaven..
    Maybe we could popularize Hell Insurance, and collect premiums on that, to make sure u can bribe Mr.Yamraj with all your life savings to give u a soft(er) corner.
    The way Indians are heading, easy to get corrupt and always ready to bribe, I wonder if the Gods will be able to resist corruption.

      Su,
      Gods were the first ones we tried to corrupt by unimaginable bribes. We still keep trying knowing very well that they have left us. I think, we as a specie are too disgusting for Gods. I am sure they have buried us in their memories as a mistake they should learn not to make twice.

      Yes, I won’t be surprised too. So much has happened in reality that somehow it is very hard to be surprised.

      Hey! And welcome here. 🙂 I don’t know, somehow the notifications are not working. 🙁 Maybe you could unsubscribe and try again?

    he he.. good joke. Might really turn out to be a reality soon, going by the rate at which everything is shooting sky high.

    And yes, going a little further, they will tax coffins and cremation as well… who knows? Are they already being taxed??? (roll eyes)

      Thanks Punam.
      Yes, I am afraid things are going out of control.
      I think nowadays there are taxes on almost everything. I am sure coffins are taxable. 🙂

    Although it is a joke. I wouldn’t be surprised if it happens for real.

    You never know if a person commits suicide, his kith and kin may have to pay the tax and if he survived a suicide attempt he would have to pay the tax for the rest of his life!!!

      I don’t think a lot of things surprise us anymore.

    well we are getting there , are we not as such now a common man has to think how will the family cope if he dies especailly with the expense to be paid on the last rites and all ..

    • Amit July 3, 2012 at 12:43 pm - Reply

      Yes, we are getting there. We have already pushed so many people to suicides. It will be very profitable to make it taxable.
