Dear Rabindrajee

No problem. In this race of existentialism all of us have to keep busy; especially for the likes of us who have abhorrence to easy and fast money.

It will be my pleasure for you to mention about my desire in your article at appropriate time; however, I hope we could have a discussion before you actually disseminate it.

As putting in place a water tight mechanism to start the inheritance tax is mandatory you are in an ideal position to at least initiate a discourse about it by way of taking the first step.Feel free to call on us if you need any assistance from us.

With best regards,


Ratna Sansar Shrestha

Dear Ratna Sansar Jee,

My sincere apologies for the delayed response. As I was occupied with several things, I could not respond to you in time.

Re Dipak Jee: I think you interpreted my mail wrongly but thank you so much for sharing your thoughts on philanthropy. There is no harm in putting your name on the institution that you establish. The most important thing is to do things. That will only inspire others to follow suit. Positive actions always create positive vibes.

I would be very keen to mention your desire in my article at an appropriate time. Hope that is okay. I also agree with you regarding the inheritance tax. I would prefer a strict one.

Best regards

Dear Rabindrajee

I too read your article with interest and almost instantaneously knew that a sharp rejoinder as such will soon be forthcoming. But I am both surprised and shocked that you have thrown in towel so quickly and in such a manner. What Dipakjee is saying has its own merit in the backdrop of what was meted out to KingG by the "loktantriksters" - to borrow a term from him. But I firmly do believe that you too have a valid point in terms of what is the best use of one's property -acquired by means fair and/or foul - not just in the case of KingG but all and sundry too.
