Death is certain no one can avoid it. If we are born on this planet we have to get perish with time that is inevitable. Like wise when we are born in a country we are the citizens of that country and we need to contribute something from our earnings to the govt for the development of our own nation. So paying taxes is also certain. So the matter in question that in today's world everything is uncertain except death and taxes is a true one and I agree with it. Thank you.

First one is the rule of nature, in which every creature of world abides/bind to follow the rule. No one can escape from this rule. It means it is certain, at some point of your life, you must have to die but it is uncertain that when it come, and where?

In second case tax.

An amount we pay to government, as per the rule,

Here we also abide to follow this rule, but the diff is that we can escape from this situation by doing fraud by going against the rule. But in case of death, there is no escape plane. Tax is also uncertain with time (it may increase or decrease in sense of pay scale).

Death, This is the only thing one can't escape from. Whether it is a person sleeping on the footpath or even president Obama. Everyone will die one day.

Life is fake but Death is the Ultimate Truth.

I am Neeraj.

As per my thought!

It is fixed law of nature, that death is sure who takes born once and taxation is a another fixed law of our government who earns more than a particular amount of money.

So purpose of both same, to live in the life cycle.

Hi friends.

I am happy goyal. As we know that nothing is not stable in this world. But we can't look only one side of the world. Suppose if we have not any aim our life would be a waste. Without aim &any job everything useless. We should not think about this everything Is unstable. We should do work with full zeal&enthusiasm.

Because we have to do something for yourself & create a name for our services just like APJ Abdul Kalam and Steve Jobs.

Because these names are suitable for their services which cannot forget. According to me, we shouldn't think about stability. Because, this thinking kill the hope & confidence.

I agree that everything is uncertain except death & taxes. If anyone have took born, he have to go in the lap of death. Death is the only way by it nobody can allow himself to avoid it. Taxes are also certain but not every where such as in Saudi Arab.

Really a very good creative topic for discussion. What I believe is that in today's world even deaths & taxes are also uncertain. As one never no when death comes and as the central power changes the taxation polices also becomes uncertain.

This uncertainty in today's world is due to our self centred thinking. One thinks of his/her own self, as student are thinking of being placed just for money, Political parties are more concerned about their probability of getting more votes. Parents are concerned only for the success of their own children through any means & finally we all are fighting to maintain peace among our own countries no matter what happens to the environment who created this whole world.

Today's world could become stable & certain but for that we all have to be open minded in spite of narrow minded. We all should be one instead of many.

Thank you.

Yes I do agree that everything is uncertain except death & tax. We all know that no one can prevent from his /her death. When the time comes everyone has to die. Same is the case with tax. No one can be prevented from the government for deducting tax when he/she earns income. As yamraj takes away the soul from human body. Govt takes away certain portion of income of individual which is certain.

I agree with the topic. Death is inevitable. People are able to earn on the merit of their skills acquired over the period of time before they started. The society has contributed in their bringing and shaping up thus making it fair for them to give back in the form of taxes.

Yes of course, I agree world is certain about two things one is death and another one is tax. Both tax and death are we can't able to avoid. Both were decided by rulers which means tax is decided by govt and death is decided by god. In earning days we doesn't pay tax means we will punish by government In old days we will not reach death means we will punish by ourself. So these two things were certain.

I agree with the topic that everything is uncertain except death and texas. In India we pay tax for the countries economy. Every person in our country must have pay tax who earn money because if we can't pay taxes then it affects our countries economy. Hence death is also certain every person know he/she will die one day. Its a fact, as all the person who earns have to pay tax.

Yes, I agree with the topic that everything is uncertain except death and taxes. A person who got a life has to die one for sure. In the same we can't escape from paying taxes as they helps in our economy. The money we pay to government in the form of taxes are used for our well being, for the development of our country and somewhere our development also depends upon the of growth of the country.

I agree that in this world only two things are certain death & taxes. Death is the low of nature, everyone who gets a life is sure to die. Taxes is the income of our country, which is coming year by year. This is working as a medicine for our economic.

Certain things are interdependent on each other according to Times India if every rich person in India pay tax correctly more than half of the poverty can be reduced so everyone should do these two things perfectly so these are certain.

In our day to day life everything is uncertain only, because today failure may become tomorrow success and vice-versa. Life is like a spinning wheel. But no people can't do any magic to escape from death and coming to taxes every earning people should need to pay the tax so the death and taxes is certain.

Yes this is true when we talk about today's world, today nothing is there on which we can beleive upon, all is uncertain. But this is also a contradiction in case of some things and people. "when there are bad things there are also good things". There is certainity in case of our families our loved ones. "and no doubt death and tax are certain ". Certainty and uncertainity are related to each other in the same way as that of "good and bad things". "fake and real things". "beleivable and unbeleivable things". So in today's era. Fake, unbeleivable, bad and "uncertainity" is having a greater proporation in cmparasion to certainty.

Death is obviously certain, no body in the world can escape from death. But certainty of tax is a relative term For eg : Wrt India everybody have to pay taxes, but in middle east countries like saudi arabia there are no taxes.

Death and taxes are certain because the people who are living have to do this both. And all other things are uncertain as they are not compulsory in the world but this.

Certain things are interdependent on each other according to Times India if every rich person in India pay tax correctly more than half of the poverty can be reduced so everyone should do these two things perfectly so these are certain.
