In some utterly depressing news coming out of Mumbai, a self-styled acronym and abbreviation enthusiast named Venky Nayadu, who calls himself VN, has been shattered after learning the fact that he has no more alternate full forms for GST to coin.
According to an estimate, since most people don’t know enough about GST, they are sharing memes and jokes as opinions. Finding full forms like “Gau Seva Tax” is being seen as an insightful commentary and VN wanted to add to the ocean of knowledge.
A proud parent of over 100 acronyms, VN is now finding it tough to reconcile with the fact that he has reached the end of the road when it comes to GST, as all possible full forms have already been coined, including “Good & Simple Tax” by the Prime Minster Narendra Modi himself.
We managed to connect with a visibly distraught VN. “Well everyone who knows me calls me coma or Creator Of Modern Acronyms. Many say I have done for Acronyms what Adam Smith did for Economics or what Max Plank did for Quantum Mechanics. So when the government indicated that they wanted to bring in GST, I promptly realised that it would be a fertile breeding ground for countless acronyms.”
“The letters in GST are so common that I knew I had stuck gold. I quickly started dishing out impressive definitions like Galactic Shift in Taxation and Goodbye Service Tax, but they were not getting viral. I realised that the I have missed the bus, as even the Prime Minister himself had come out with alternative full forms.”
With over 13 hours gone ever since GST came into effect, VN has been unable to make a funny full form, and has gone into depression.
According to latest reports, NDTV journalists are waiting for medical report of VN, so that they can break the news of first victim in India due to implementation of GST.
