Aussie tax evaders beware lest the Dept. discover this solution.

This article really appeals to something deep within me. I have to admit that the vision I get when I read it is extremely Monty Pythonish. It also appeals to my innate sense of moral right & justice – of course.

NEW DELHI (AFP) – Eunuchs in Eastern India were drafted by authorities to sing outside the homes of tax evaders to embarrass them into paying up, a report said Thursday.

Sari-clad eunuchs were out in force with municipal tax collectors Wednesday in Patna, capital of Bihar, India’s most lawless state, the Indian Express reported.

“Pay the tax, pay the Patna Municipal Corporate tax,” chorused the eunuchs on the dorstep of their first target, Ram Sagar Singh, who owed 100,000 rupees (2,240 dollars).

A mortified Singh promised to pay within a week, the report said.

The municipality netted 400,000 rupees Wednesday using the eunuchs, who got a four percent commission. It vowed to step up it’s drive, cheered by it’s success.

What a wonderful world we live in!!
