Making tea is not just boiling some sugar tea powder and milk together. Here is the trick of making tea that
tastes fantastic. Let us start to make a nice cup of tea.

There are two ways of making tea first way is boiling tea powder, sugar, and milk together. Second ways is making black tea first and add milk and appropriate sugar to it.

2. After boiling water add tea powder, we recommend one teaspoon of tea powder, but you can change the quantity of tea powder as per your taste is you want strong taste of tea leaves in you tea add more tea powder or you can add lesser amount of tea powder to make a light tea. If you are going to use tea bags one tea bag per cup is the quantity. If you are using tea bags then pour the boiled water to cups then put tea bags to it.
3. Add sugar as per your taste and boil the mixture to get a reddish tinge in the mixture.

India now ranks fifth in the world in total energy consumption after US, China, Japan, and Russia. The government decided to decontrol prices of petrol, diesel and cooking gas as part of a plan to move towards a market-determined price regime. Prices of petrol hiked by Rs 3.50 per litre, diesel by Rs 2 per litre and kerosene by Rs 3 per litre. Cooking gas will be costlier by Rs 35 per cylinder. The crude prices have increased by nearly 10 per cent since end-December 2007. The rising oil prices are (this is a cartoon from www.outlookindia.com

The finance minister admitted to have imposed petroleum duties to the extent of Rs 1,08,000 crores. Of this, he stated that Rs 24,000 crores will be transferred to all the states put together. This leaves Rs 84,000 crores with the centre. He claimed that the states put together have imposed petroleum duties to the extent of Rs 72,000 crore. Therefore, all the states put together now will be receiving Rs 96,000 crore while the centre gets only Rs 84,000 crore. Thus implying that the state governments bear a greater responsibility for burdening people than the centre! – this is not the problem of the poor, I think so, who gets more? State or center? Their problem is hunger. A recent study shows 6 Indian states have more poverty than sub Saharan Africa.

The entire burden of Rs 84,000 crore imposed by the centre is transferred to the people through a hike in prices. The Rs 96,000 crore is the cumulative amount of taxes in all the 28 states of India. This, on an average, comes to Rs 3428.57 crore per state. This is the burden that falls on the shoulders of the people living in the respective states due to taxes by the state governments, as compared to the burden of Rs 1,08,000 crores of central taxes that falls on all the people.

The money you pay to buy a litre of petrol or diesel consists of a large component of central and state taxes.

Taxes account for almost 50 per cent of the cost of petrol.

Without the taxes, petrol and diesel both would cost about Rs 26-27 per litre!
