    And therefore now Indians should be ready for more and more harassment as if the present level of the harassment is not enough.The Indian entrepreneurs and all the businessmen and also all the ordinary citizens are tired of the level of useless and extremely expensive compliance they are called to make or they have to be ready for heavy penalties and bribery.All the skills are being spent away on the filling in the forms and making payment of taxes and replying to the irrelevant and useless repeated notices received from all the Govt departments and flattering the most corrupt and the most useless and the most damaging bureaucrats in India.I have been inter acting with many manufacturers and now everybody has lost the spirit of entrepreneurship and have been expressing the feeling to wind up the business and deposit the funds in a nationalized bank and enjoy on the interest.In the entire world India is perhaps the only so called developing nation who has been killing a hen to have all the eggs at one time.I am really depressed and ashamed.
