Nobody likes paying taxes. Even those who know that taxation is necessary and just are reluctant to pay taxes. It is not pleasant to see part of your monthly income taken away from you in income tax. Ignorant people think this is in justice and make a grievance of it; so it is just as well that we should know why we are taxed, so that we can see the fairness of the system.

Every country must have a government of some sort, or life would be impossible. The primary duties of a government are to protect the life and property of the citizen, to maintain law and order and settle dispute between citizens in a just and orderly way through the law-courts, to defend the countries from foreign foes, and to maintain the roads and highways. Besides many governments maintain and direct education, provides hospitals for the sick, and attends the sanitation. All these great public duties need money; an army and navy have to be kept up, the police force and the judges have to be paid, schools have to be provided and teachers supported, expert health-officers and sanitary engineers have to be employed. Now where is all the money needed for the public service from? The question is answered by another. For those benefits are all these service maintained? The answer is, for the benefits of the public. It is the people as a whole, rich and poor, that benefit by security of life and property, by the sound administration of justice, by the maintenance of roads, by the public hospital, public schools and good sanitation. Therefore it is only right that the public, the individual citizens of the country should contribute the money needed; for the money they give comes back to them in the shape of these public benefits which all enjoy.

So long, therefore, as we have a good and efficient government, so long our money is being used in the right way and so long as the burden of taxation is distributed fairly, as different classes can bear it, we have no right to grumble as having to pay our share of the taxes.

Tsunamis occur when a major fault under the ocean floor suddenly slips. The displaced rock pushes water above it like a giant paddle, producing powerful water waves at the ocean surface. The ocean waves spread out from the vicinity of earthquake source and move across the ocean until they reach the coastline, where their height increases as they reach the continental shelf, or rises, from the ocean floor up to the land.

Tsunamis wash ashore with often-disastrous effects such as severe flooding, loss of lives to drowning, and damage property.

A tsunami is a very large sea wave that is generated by a disturbance along the ocean floor. This disturbance can be earthquake, a landslide, or a volcanic eruption. A tsunami is undetectable far out in the ocean, but once it reaches shallow water, this fast traveling wave grows very large.
