Dissecting the Tax Structure-Rejoinder

Rejoinder Amaresh Bagchi A REPLY to a book review is a rarity in itself and is seldom, in convention, countered with a rejoinder. Whether a critic's comments on a work are sound or superficial, whether the points on criticism are major or 'minor', 'analytical' or 'emotional, can hardly be settled through a debate between the author and the critic and is best left to be judged by the readers. How ever, when the author of the work reviewed alleges, as Ved P Gandhi does in his 'Reply' to my review of his 'Some Aspects of India's Tax Structure: an Economic Analysis' (April 15, 1972), that there has been gross mis-representation and mis-statement of his position, besides a lack of comprehension of elementary points, silence on the part of the reviewer is liable to be misunderstood.
