How to re-establish Indian ties?

tamilkuravan: PAN Card is a photo identity proof but not an address proof. To open a bank account or to buy property, you will need an address proof. May be some of you still have licence (which is valid for 10 / 20 years).
rajcanada: PAN card you can also apply from Canada, which will be your ID proof. It is going to be tricky to get a local address proof in India since that document has to bear your name. Relatives document will not work.
mannanhere: Although this might be a new post but also a good supplement to the POST started by captainbeen Recently, I checked my NRE accounts in India (long back I used them a lot but not any more) like SBI, HDFC and ICICI.
captainbeam: thanks for the replies everyone. very helpful. I should mention that I am not going back to India to live again. just wish to re-establish my ties there like having a bank account, maybe buy a flat at


Threat to Indian Muslims by Tufail Ahmed

ramar2005: The US and their allies not only armed these fanatics but their mercenaries fought to destroy Libya and Gadaffi. Now it is difficult to put the genie back in the bottle. Russians or the Ukranians (both White Europeans) had only downed the Malaysian Airlines plane, killing all the passengers.
Vandematram: Dr.subramaniyam Swamy speech in Mumbai in support of Israel. LINK
Vandematram: That's my boy !. What a proud father !. LINK
Nightmare: If Modi agrees and implements sincerely the principle enunciated by a great thinker and honest person our beloved ex PM Manmohan singh that the muslims have first right over resources of the country, there would be no riots or radicalization.


For all those Desis walking with collars up watch this house warming video

JRF: Well, I think he just wrote what heart feels than applying any logic. Can't be formal always in a forum, it would be a boring avenue any how. Coming back to the house, a lot depends on once goals
febpreet: Big deal. I am happy with my mortgage as much as I was with my 1800 sq. feet house in Delhi. I actually walk with my collars down still. By the way, did you see the chaos outside the mansion? You sound as if everybody in Kerala owns this huge piece of extravagance.
geetakhanna: I would like to send flowers in Gandhigiri - with the message - get well soon. To want to weep - or want others to weep - looking on jealously at someone's success and prosperity - is a sad place to be.
brown_bear: You are comparing apples and oranges. The owner of the house must be from upper middle class of the society in India. Comparing him with lower middle class in Canada just doesn't make sense. Money can't buy clean air, corruption free society and a Canadian passport

tamilkuravan: One more suggestion is that you should never mention names. I see that you are mentioning names. Though you might have won the case, it is slander to mention names and the incident. He can take you to the court and win. Again, I am telling you that it is not a joke to live in Canada and still be with
tamilkuravan: Happy Woman, Some people never learn. I would recommend you to file a claim in the small claims court and take him to court. So that next time, he will think twice to cheat. Again does not apply to that individual alone. Applies to you and me too. In Canada, you need to extremely careful and cautious.

How does Toronto feel after living in California for last 7 years..

AshwaniG: RBO the best way to improve your english is to call the toll numbers with chat facilities with Gori ladies . You may pay the price but some of us went through that route and learnt it . On a side note : I am little intrigued that how do you prosper and popular despite of your so poor english
tamilkuravan: Yup. and you are still very poor in English. Murali
RBO: TK knows best English in the world...for sure....:-)
febpreet: When you're an immigrant, everything is zeroed on the job. Move where it takes you. First try your best where you are living presently so as not to uproot yourself completely. However, if it doesn't work out then move to the next best place if you could get you the choice'd employment there. California vs.
pratickm: , as ironic as that may sound. California's ecology and environment is falling apart. It has now been in a severe, man-made drought for several years. The US Dept. of Agriculture has classified it as "extreme" drought, which is the higher category, above "severe drought". Most


how to get out of a signed contract ?

Full House: - It is too saddening and disappointing to the buyers. There are a few cases mentioned here, with slight changes, and I find it is worth reading. They are from across the border. NJOY. FH. LINK
geetakhanna: Very good advice by TK.
tamilkuravan: No. It is not that easy to walk away like this unless the other party agrees. if not, the contract is enforcable in the court of law (unless the contract is ruled illegal due to technical reasons). be extremely cautious about contracts. It is not a joke. Always contact a lawyer for competent advise and avoid charcha boards for advice. Murali The Krishna
Aashu: hello all : this is just for my knowledge/ awareness......if one sells his/ her house and all deal is done, confirmed, no conditions in it, and then later before closing date the seller changes his mind and does not want to sell....what are his/ her options ? what can the seller do and and if seller backs out what are the consequences ?


Exeter, Ontario (north of London, ON)

Full House: May be their origins and/or ancestry could be from Gujarat. Some times they move from continent to continent and lose touch with their Mother Tongue. It Happens. FH.
hchheda: There seem to be 5 Gujarati speaking people/ families as per the census data posted, though none of them has Gujarati as the language spoken most often at home. Hiren .
Full House: - This survey is three years old. There are NO higher learning institutions there in EXETER ONTARIO. Also, there are no GUJARATHIS in the records from this survey. But things do change as time progresses. You will have to contact the community there and make inquiries with your special requests. Good Luck. FH. LINK
pvsavla: Does anybody know of a Gujarati or any Indian family living in Exeter, ON, as one of our acquaintance is going to study there and would need PG with food kind of facilities.


Hamilton waterfalls

tamilkuravan: To the OP. It is a waste. Nothing much. Fall colours over the ravine (Ravine is good, but the view to the ravine is not spectacular.) is the only good thing there. There is nothing much to hike there and it will be a very short hike. Hope this helps. Murali The Krishna
quest: Websters falls is nice, but they have closed the stairs with clear waning signs, but still you will see people ignoring that and descending all the way to the base of the falls, I guess it will be crowded during the labour day weekend, note parking is $10 and you can use it for other falls as well, Tews falls is very close by, from there you can hike 2kms to dundas peak (google pls) where you will get a nice view of hamilton
Full House: - WEBSTERS AND TEWS FALLS : Here is a link and a small view of the Falls. Some portions of the bridge were rebuilt for the tourists. You can travel right to the bottom of the falls. On your way out and towards Hamilton and Dundas, you will see the view from the escarpment into the lower valley sector, a rustic scenery of the two valley cities, to view and enjoy.

Jainna Patel a true agent of change !

Vandematram: Jainna Patel has initiated something which will be very valuable for our children. When M.K.Gandhi was thrown out of the 1st Class compartment in South Africa he stood up and eventually was a change agent for India and indirectly South Africa and African Americans in USA. What Jainna has done in Mississauga(she hails from land of MKG)will impact many of our families. Be a Agent of Change or be part of Change if not you'll be swept away byChange. My Salute to Jainna Patel. LINK

Gold - Scotiabank vs Kitko vs Gold EFT

pratickm: Well, the $600K does not include a very substantial CPP & OAS entitlement. I'd say the CPP & OAS entitlement for someone that worked non-stop from age 18 to 68 is a lot more than $600K :D
Full House: There are 70,000 registered posters on this Canadian Desi board. I am pretty sure there are 7000 of them here in Canada and don't want to tell us their location. (Include me in it) At least 700 are here in Ontario. 70 of them post here and reply to the queries posted.
sudesingh: Welcome back Pratick !!!
pratickm: Yes, and no. It is possible to buy precious metals in three forms: - Paper gold, such as gold backed ETFs like GLD, CGL, etc. - Physical gold backed certificates. In this case, the gold belongs to you and you are issued a certification, or a position,
Full House: - Not many of us know about this feature. But it will be worth your time and effort, as it will pay you back handsomely. Also because you will be doing it all by yourself, you will know a lot more about it and also gain the experience doing it. Now you want to know what it is? Right? Well, start reading it a little at a time, or print and save it.

hchheda: My humble suggestion is NOT to REPLY to ANY PERSON posing as COP or Law enforcement directly. Ask them to contact your lawyer. You have the right to remain silent and let the lawyer do the talking on your behalf. Looking at the history of this issue, I think it is far from over - please keep a good lawyer handy.
