The episode opens with a great statement from CA S. Ramanujam: “Most of us have never experienced God in person, but according to me doctors are equivalent to God.”
Isn’t this true? There is an ancient proverb that ‘doctors are second to god on this earth’. Like god created Mother and Father to protect us and take our responsibility; by the same token, he created ‘Doctors’ to heal us from all agony. It is only the doctors who can comprehend the condition of patients and set them free of all sufferings and sickness.
What will excite you all about this episode is the way Mr. S Ramanujam, talks about his love for Taxation, so much so that it won’t be wrong if we call ‘Taxation’ his first wife.
The Art of Taxation
“I found Taxation very fascinating. You could make your name and you could do a lot of things if you are passionate about a particular subject.”
Being passionate about your discipline influences imagination and further gives meaning to your actions. Being passionate about your subject makes you who you are. Mr. Ramanujam reinforces through his speech that you are more likely to be driven to thrive if you have a deep curiosity for your subject.
“The only way to cheer me up was to talk income tax during the 40 days”
He further goes on to discuss an incident where he was hospitalised for over a month, but even then, he was not out of his dosage of taxation. What we can interpret is that if we don’t have any real passion for our subject, we'll ultimately run out of motivation.
Why paying tax is important?
“Very proudly I say I am a silver certificate recipient from the Government of India as a taxpayer.”
The Government of India has taken an initiative to felicitate individual income taxpayers by issuing them a “Certificate of Appreciation” to acknowledge their contribution towards Nation building. These certificates are divided into four different categories: Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze. Mr. Ramanujam is a silver certificate recipient and proudly states the same. He further goes on to discuss some of the incidents from the UB Group, he came across in his journey.
“Income tax is full of humour. You have to understand the subject to know the beauty of it.”
Taxes have a bearing on the finances of individuals, families, and commerce. Having an understanding of taxes is essential to being an effective auditor. But little did we know that there exists ‘Humour in Income Tax.’ Watch the session to know this exciting piece of information.
“There is an easy option; there is a hard option. Sometimes we need to take the hard option also.”
But why would someone choose the hard way out? Because choosing the tougher route will set you apart from the rest. So, stretch your limits! That is what it takes to succeed.
