‘Life of Pi’ – A Ticket for Stupendous Visual Treat

Life of pi, Hollywood, review, 2012

Elements of surrealism, breathtaking visuals of a young boy with a fierce tiger on a boat together with some twists and turns make up the superb film, “Life of Pi”. This film is based on namesake Man Booker Prize, the fiction novel by Yann Martel. No matter whether you have already the story or not, watching this 3D movie is a real lifetime experience that comes to you once in a lifetime.

Hearing the narration of the youth retelling the tale of his survival after a destructive shipwreck is very aspiring. “You don’t know the strength of your faith until it’s tested” – this is one of the dialogues of Irfan Khan, which forms the plot of the entire movie beginning from Pi’s struggle with the ravenous tiger up to the end of the adventure thrilled voyage.

Watch the movie and some of the scenes will definitely tell you that it was the test of Pi’s faith in all sense. The phase when Pi deals with the brutal tiger and trains him or the phase when Pi is forced to gobble raw meat despite being one strict vegetarian truly portrays Pi’s test of faith.

‘Life of Pi’ similar to ‘Gulliver’s Travels’ – is it so? In many respects a comparison is made between the two. But how can they be compared? Pi and Gulliver both embarked on sea voyage and both ends up discovering some important fact after the sea voyage.

If you want to talk about the performance of Suraj Sharma, it can be described in a single word – ‘speechless’. Remarkable artfulness is being shown in the role he played. Irrfan Khan, on the other hand, crafts himself well and prominently plays the narrator’s role.

Well, the end is not so impressive and that is where it lays back. After so much dramatic twists   and captivating surprises, it is quite naturally expected that the ending will be an astounding one. But the end was disappointing – it was too sober for the story. It seems that the makers were short of their creative skills at the end.

Watch and decide yourself the lesson that comes out of this movie –‘Life of Pi’.

Section 80G: Donations to Charitable institutions

You can claim a deduction for any donation that you might have made to a charitable fund or institution. However, please note that these donations should be made only to specified institutions. And a proper proof of payment must be provided for the same. Based on the classification of the charity, you can claim either 100% or 50% of the donated amount as deduction. The deduction might also be subject to a certain limit again based on the type of charity that you are donating money

Section 24: Interest paid on housing loan

Under Section 24, a maximum of Rs 1,50,000 can be deducted from your taxable income as interest repayment for a self occupied house. Please note that this deduction is not available if you the house is still under construction and you do not have occupation of the house.

Provisions that you should take advantage of if you are a salaried employee:

Section 10(13A) : House Rent Allowance

You can take advantage of the provisions under this section if you are renting an accommodation. These provisions will not be available to you if you stay in a rent-free accommodation or live with your family or in your own house.
Under Section 10(13A), HRA is exempt to the least of the following:
i) 50/40 per cent of basic salary= Dearness Allowance (if, applicable),
ii) excess of rent paid over 10 per cent of basic salary; and
iii) actual HRA received.

Lets illustrate this calculation with an example:
HRA per month = Rs 15,000
Basic monthly salary = Rs 30,000
Monthly rent = Rs 14,000
Rental accommodation is in Delhi.

The HRA exemption would be the least of the following:

1. Actual amount of HRA: Rs 15,000
2. 50% of salary (basic component + dearness allowance) = 50% x (30,000 + 0) = Rs 15,000
3. Actual rent paid - 10% of salary (basic component + dearness allowance)= Rs 14,000 - [10% of (30,000 + 0)] = 14,000 – 3,000 = Rs 11,000
Rs 11,000 being the least of the three amounts will be the exemption from HRA.
The balance HRA of Rs 4,000 (15,000-11,000) would be taxable.
Please note that HRA exemptions are only available on submission of rent receipts or the rent agreement.

Paying Rent to parents or relatives
If you want to pay rent to your parents or any relatives (like uncle/cousin) whom you are staying with. You will need to treat them as landlords. And request the owner of the house (which will be one of your parents) to declare it in his/ her personal income tax return. This will prevent any litigation in the future.

Section 10 (14) Rule 2BB(10) : Transport Allowance
Transport allowance granted for commuting between your residence and place of work is exempt up to Rs. 800 a month. You can take advantage of this provision to get a tax exemption of Rs 9600 annually by providing your employer with bills or a self declaration.

Section 17(2) : Medical Reimbursement
You can claim exemption up to Rs 15,000 annually on actual expenditure incurred on your medical treatment or for treatment of any of your dependents. Moreover, there is no restriction of approved hospitals or clinic for the same. This is exempt only on provision of actual bills.
However, if the amount is paid out as an allowance not a reimbursement then it would be fully taxable.
