Day (minus)10: Welcome to GoI

Future-babus’ Conversation as overheard around town:

What classifies as movable property?

Do I have to declare my laptop? What about my phone? Is that property too?

I bought a new pair of underwear for over Rs 1000. Do I have to declare that too?

Does my desktop classify as movable or immovable property?

Is this form to be filled in duplicate or triplicate?

Do I make xerox copies before or after filling Form 8X?

Is Form Sugar-Spice-and-Everything-Nice to be taken personally or emailed or faxed or SpeedPosted?

Who are my dependents? Is their property my property?

What investments to declare? The ones made by them or by me or by them in my name or by me in their name?

Why are we doing this?

Why are we here?

What is the meaning of life?

Who am I? 

For he who is not careful, GoI Form Filling soon transcendeth into an existential crisis.
Thou hast been warned.
