So what to do next?
remembering that our eventual aim is to get Manjula a passport, but let’s build up to the big tasks and start with something more straightforward
a simple first challenge was to get a PAN card for Manjula. You get a PAN card when you register to pay taxes. Country needs people to pay taxes so you’d expect it to be relatively easy. Well it, sort of, is and I’ve got one (as has the company), so it can’t be that difficult, can it?

This would be important as would be to learn from the process of obtaining it, we’d need to get Manjula’s various ID’s in line (rather like ducks) and the card itself would be a valuable addition to helping create a formal identity suited to the modern age 😉 yeh, right! what are we waiting for?
So the man to manage the process would be Ganesh, my very able accountant. He copes with my idiosyncratic accounting practices, so is nothing, if not flexible and adaptable.
But of course, the balloon (ie me, do check our business card) is ‘the fixer’ or is it gopher?
First stage is to get her three forms of ID that show her photo, name, Date of Birth and address… now let me just find them out…….
