DeModified : U turn Sarkar

ramar2005: Like a Chidambaram to MMS, we now have Jaitley for Modi. Both the past and present FMs are plants of the ultra rich, to ensure that the government do not go by people's mandate but follow policies which protect a few.
ramar2005: The reasons are not far to seek. LINK The money bags have formed themselves into a crowd but in reality are as brave
Vandematram: What a wasted opportunity of 6 months. It is like a old chutney in a new bottle with a new label. No difference between Mad Mohan Singh and De-Modi Naren. Every issue has gone down into a whimper

SMART CITY PROJECT...

ramar2005: Some more relevant news. LINK The bifurcation of AP was hanging fire nearly 60 years, caused much heartburn to the people of the now Telengana (land surrounding Hyderabad).
Full House: Prince of Qatar to invest rupees one lakh crores in Modi’s ‘smart city’ project. The focus of this huge investment is on ten smart-city projects in a first phase, whereas, the partners have shown interest


Terror in Mumbai - A Documentary

ramar2005: The SC has stayed the execution of the mentioned terrorist, after they themselves had pronounced death sentence on him in March 2013 for his role in the Mumbai blasts of 1993 which is said to have killed only 257 people.
ramar2005: India yesterday observed the annual 26/11 ceremony, the first five observed by MMS who strived for Nobel Peace Prize and now the first by Modi. Nothing has changed on the Pakistan side. They continue
desi-friend: I don't support that either.
icecube: It is only a metaphor...not literally...I guess you should be mature enough to understand that...If that is a big concern...I will edit it....but you can let people use f!@#in ......when we all know what that means....
desi-friend: BTW how much are you willing to bet?

Taliban attack on Pakistan school leaves 141 dead....

Full House: We live in a country which has a mixed population and we consider it cosmopolitan and even here we see a few radicals who are creating a havoc in our day to day life. In a country that is mostly Moslem, we would expect that there will be a bond between the communities, which will be much more cohesive
san-hugo: Pakistan got no oil wells, so power goons will not care, no matter how many kids will die there. There will be words and tweets of condolences, thats it. But that or anything will not fill the void parents are feeling. These were kids of army personnel. It remains to be seen , what decisions are made by Pakistan army / govt to keep the moral of their soldiers high.
happywoman36: It's really shocking and painful to c innocent children being targeted by terrorist/Taliban. They don't deserve this. It's more shocking n shameful fact that, powerful countries who can put a stop to this are watching the show quietly. Thy are ten steps ahead whn it cme to Iraq n other issues so why not Pakistan?


Medieval Times show in toronto

sudesingh: LINK for all your questions. Sometimes you have to leave the discounts behind and enjoy with the family.
Aashu: TK, you want to come by to attend the show ? LOL
tamilkuravan: Aashu, What is the pricing? Any discount days? Where is it located ? Murali The krishna.
Aashu: Any suggestion on seating ? should upgrade to royal package ?
san-hugo: I agree , it is quite an experience. wonderful show, they literally take you to the medieval times and place you there , while you eat and enjoy the show as if personally invited by the king. Good concept !
geetakhanna: It is an absolutely amazing show! There is a vegetarian option - which is ok. The kids will love it - though your 5yr old may be a bit too young to fully appreciate it. My son is a history buff - and he was so thrilled. Go early - there is a lot to see and take pics. You can order wine. The servers address you as royalty and call themselves your wenches.


Office Commute Times

northyork_desi: One workaround I have found is to ask for flexible shift. The last two companies I have worked agreed to that. One company I worked in the past didnt allow it as I was part of shift rotation. Now I leave at around 9:30 and start at around 10 regardless of my location. That allows me to beat the traffic on most days. 407 is expensive and is only good if you live west or east of the Toronto and you work in NorthYork, Yaughan or Markham.
febpreet: TK, I think you raised something valid, vis-a-vis housing. What is the point of buying a big house in a far away burb, when you have to spend close to 2 hours one way in commuting? Why not buy a townhouse near the city. But, we are actually imbibed with the housing dream, which is now synonymous to the North American dream.
tamilkuravan: Gurram, It is supposed to be 'HATE' the housing dream. Sorry for the Typo. Donot want to hijack the thread any further. Carry on. Murali The Krishna


The Curious Case of Rohit Sharma

tamilkuravan: Good point Ramar. However this is too often common with North Indians / regional players being given the preference. Murali The Krishna
ramar2005: This Mumbai player like his predecessor seems to like justifying his presence in the team more on reputation than on performance. Just before the tour Rohit had made a record breaking 264 in a home ODI against Sri Lanka. But that was an under arm bowling wicket. When it really mattered in the 2nd


Non-State Actors Show

ramar2005: There was this dissertation that the high voter turn out in elections in Kashmir was not support for Indian Constitution and The Hindu of Dec 13th devoted more than half of its editorial page for the non-sense. Kashmiris have realised that if they prefer Pakistan they should be prepared for many Peshawar type tragedies and are running for their dear lives from the death embrace of Pakistan.
Vandematram: LINK
febpreet: This has become null and void with the recent terror attack on the Peshawar school kids. How sick could these terrorists be that don't even spare the kids? For God's sake, they are innocent children. If Pakistan Govt. and the Army don't even stand up to the terrorism now, I don't know when else. Despicable.
ramar2005: This is about Pakistan's 4-3 win over India in the Champions Trophy semi-final in a close finish. People say the players forgot they were ambassadors for their country. But it is very wrong to blame them, when they very much showcased what their country really is. LINK

OCI application in BLS Brampton / Toronto

farzanazahoor: Thanks for ur response- yea I already had the tourist visa stamped since I didnt want to take a chance knowing how these guys function. I think I will submit my pp for stickers after I come back. But what about the oci booklet - should I go pick that up?
adamthorat: Are you travelling next week to India ?? Are you travelling on a VISA then ? It will take at least 10 days for these guys to stamp the OCI sticker on your Canadian PP , so don't take any chance with them..when you come back go there ASAP & submit your Canadian PP. Keep all your travel records with you , just in case they need to know , what took you so long.
adamthorat: Do you want to take a chance with Visa on Arrival ? What when you arrive at the airport for minor things , they refuse your Visa ..are you going to spend thousands in wasted plane tkts & a spoiled trip ? Getting a visa over here, when you have time is hard enough..with all the red tape & bureaucracy..and you want to trust these guys with VISA on arrival ?


How to make money in Canada ?

Gurram: You nailed it ... Happywoman
happywoman36: Basically, remember one thing that, relocating to new country is not an easy task. U have to be prepared for the worst for initial 2-5 yrs unless you are relocating with a good job in hand. Most of the people who have migrated with less money have ended up taking any type of job to survive in this country.
Gurram: TK ... I didn't sound easy. Do not mistake. I said what I have seen in front of my eyes how a guy is prospering without much academics. One thing I have to tell ... he is really good and did a perfect job. His skill is fetching him the dollars. May not possible for every tech. The point is ...
tamilkuravan: Gurram, It is not as easy as you speak. If it were so, all would be doing technician job. Very few get this kind of break. See the car technicians working on your cars. They are not that well to do. We have had some person's clean our apartments. For not that easy work, We paid like $ 75 for 4 hours of work.

Gurram: I am sure you must be a having a VERY GOOD reason/s for not moving from Ajax. TK: what is the housing dream you have !!!
tamilkuravan: Vivek, More than the money, you are wasting precious time. When you drive, you canot do anything. Make use of your time in GO by doing constructive things. This is one of the reasons I have the housing dream. You buy in Ajax and work in downtown. Just imagine, if you had kids and had to leave them with the baby sitter / school.
