Lying on my bed pondering over the events of the day, I wondered about the great potential of this concept – ‘With Retrospective Effect’. Though it is used mostly in the government and its various agencies, it has an even greater utility for the world outside.
There have been certain high-profile cases related to taxation laws where this concept was used to settle Government’s rivalries with the Judiciary (and also to increase its revenues – one of them being pretty recent). Such actions though invariably become & remain controversial.
Many times I have wondered how I know in my dreams when the alarm will go off. So I get up and reach office. A letter was waiting at my desk. ‘You have been fired w.r.e.’.
