Now, for demonetization, you were affected as you posted elsewhere. But does fuel price rise pinch you now. How about your help and staff? And how much does rupee dollar rate and stock market fall affect you?
Why I am asking is because I tend to cross check my own din against achchhe din. In the india shining days of 2003, my salary was rising again lus a lot of luxuries like air travel became affordable.
The Congress rule did start pinching starting with mid day meal surcharge, then jump in service tax and then fringe benefit tax. And my cyber coolie employer was shitting in the pants when rupee went up to 35 a dollar. They did not lay off then though (that happened in 2008/9).
I will dig up my post from then to show even those days I did not cry about Petrol.
