All in all considered, this is a welcome step and a master stroke. When self-declaration of black money did not happen, this is indeed going to pull out such people out of the hole or they lose all their worth. I feel, we are still missing the bigger picture.

If you ever… ever watched F.R.I.E.N.D.S and ever hummed The Remembrants song, “I’ll be there for you”… then this one is for you. This Indianized version by Mahesh Raghavan has made me play it in loop over and over again.
