Back on a Monday morning and in action at the office! Did finish the shoots for the new format of Sanjeev Kapoor’s Kitchen, i.e., Teen Patti on Saturday. Was as usual hectic, but had fun as my little nephew, Manit, was there on the sets! Did manage to relax on Sunday though, with a fun-filled luncheon with good friends Dr. Ram and Meena Prabhoo. All of us had a great time together with laughter and masti!
The night was equally special as Alyona’s sister and her husband had come over. So, I cooked up laksa for all of us and we enjoyed it thoroughly…
As for today, I finally managed to get some time to check on the renovations going on in the office, before I left for the first board meeting which was scheduled today at Sahara Star. We are expanding now, and we do need more space in the office to accommodate more and more people. The developments have been happening for quite some time now, so it was necessary on my part to ensure things were running smoothly.
During the meeting, I just happened to check with the Union Budget for the year 2011-2012. People will be really happy to know that there is a budgetary increase in the education sector by 24% and health sector by 20%. Also, a good news for the general mass lies in the tax exemption limit which has been raised from 1, 60,000 to 1, 80,000.
However, somethings which have not gone well with me is the service tax that has been widened to cover hotel accommodation above Rs 1,000 per day and A/C restaurants serving liquor. The common man has also somethings to worry with the increase in the service tax on air travel and accommodation of hospital rooms as well.
And while I am gearing up for an exciting time for the road show at Ahmedabad, you can enjoy some dishes like
