Do you believe this?

ramar2005: The reason for Jihad against Hindus is because of their idol worship of Gods. It is said that in the holy book of muslims written in the 6th century, anyone worshipping idols is infidel and must be killed.

Pakistan Ceasefire Violations

ramar2005: The whole night the Indian news media have been playing visuals about the total anarchy on the streets of Lahore and Karachi. Imran Khan and Qadri with the tacit backing of the army have been staging protests for the removal of Nawaz Sharif.
ramar2005: The Foreign Secretary level talks were supposed to be held on Aug 26th at Islamabad and the Pak High Commissioner in Delhi pompously called traitors alias separatists from Kashmir for "tea party" in Delhi. Little did he realise that under Modi things were going to be done differently.


How to re-establish Indian ties?

tamilkuravan: Captain, Then what you need is a PAN card for all financial transactions in India. I have not bought property yet and hence canot answer that one. But a city that asks for residence proof in India for
captainbeam: I am sorry if I caused confusion with my question. here is what i am trying to do: I am not planning to relocate back to India. I will continue lving here in canada. By reestablishing ties I mean have a bank account in India.
tamilkuravan: Guys, Please read the OP's post carefully. He is asking for Indian ties (reestablishing). NRE/NRO accounts are for foreign citizens who are expected to show a foreign address. But to settle in India,
sathishbaburaj: I opened my NRE/NRO account with Kotak mahindra bank 2 months back right here from Canada.I had a hassle free experience with them.All I did was make a request from their website to open an account.I received


OCI Sticker and Certificate for New Passport

tamilkuravan: Try to change the name as per official procedure. That would be the best. But in absence of it, they would still allow you to travel, if you have the old cancelled passport and your marriage certificate (in original or attested by competant authority like counsulate of India etc...).
Christian: Hello, I was wondering if anyone can help me with the correct information. I have an OCI stamp on my old passport and I also have OCI card. Now I got a new passport with a different lastname as I got married.
rajcanada: OCI can be renewed while in India. For addresses, see LINK
tamilkuravan: Kumar M, I am in the same situation. I will be getting a new passport for a person under 16 years in April 2012. Once you find out, can you update the forum as what needs to be done (I am located permanently in India) and the time lines that you experience. Peace

How to Survive with Minmum Wages

febpreet: Yes, that would be helpful. Rule of thumb when immigrating - move where you could find a job or where the job takes you. No point in sticking to one place if unemployed for a long time.
metouk: Could you please let us know about your education and experience background ? Think about to move to Alberta state , there are good opportunities there.
chandresh: "Since 2002 till date....did you really face all this....?" No man no............!! He did this for a few years and then got fed up and left Canada. Perhaps to become an adviser to other immigrants with his funny anecdotes and interesting solutions!!
febpreet: Sorry to say, but what about going back to India or where you immigrated from, instead of spending the good part of your life in misery? Ask yourself - is it worth it?
Victor9: Thanks, can you please provide some links where I can go for free stuff etc.... but its difficult when you have a family..... and how much we can save ???? and what life will enjoy... Since 2002 till date....did you really face all this.........? sorry about that but I am more worried now.....I don't think I can live in this stressssssss thanks


Multiple Visitor Visa Question

febpreet: My acquaintance is sending an extension of visa application. I think the form is IMM5807. I am not sure what she was told when contacted the CIC, but the best recourse is to call them as they are a better judge to advise you what needs to be done in this case. Not sure about going out to States and come back via.
peacock1: Hi Febpreet, I am currently contemplating similar move for my mother, whose case is identical , please update the forum , as I am interested to know the fact. I agree with what TK has opined.
febpreet: Thanks TK. What about going to US by road and coming back the same day? Can it be renewed at the border itself? Has anyone ever done that?
tamilkuravan: If she can stay in the USA for a month or so, it will be very helpful. How long has she stayed in Canada? Is it 6 months or a year? If it is 6 months, she can apply for another 6 months and just stay in Canada. If it is a year, let her go to USA for a month or 2 weeks and try to reenter . Just talking my mind. Hope seniors like SS, Cdn_Dude will help better !


Duct Cleaning

chandresh: And how do you know they have done a good job - do these guys show you the ducts before and after as was shown in the CBC documentary? If yes, then I would like to use them.
lavsub: I always used Mega Duct and for $130 they do a very complete job. They can be reached at 416-893-8363.
chandresh: Thanks for the link JRF - the problem is how to get Gino or people like him who would do a good job without charging an arm and a leg!!
JRF: Just yesterday, I did the duct cleaning yesterday, I saw this post and decided wait until the work complete. The company I used was ductcleaningspecialists.ca, I got referral through homestars, I decided after reviewing many other providers. They also had a $100 discount on a $429 / 15 vents duct cleaning.
BlueLobster: Thanks for posting, Raj. I had not seen this before but this is a real eye opener. If someone on the forum does find a good Air duct cleaner who's a pro but charges appropriately, would be good to get a referral.


House cleaning help wanted

chandresh: I live in Vaughan and do not have any colleges around in this area where I could get some students do part time work. In our nearby Grocery stores, we have not seen ads for help available. We do get some Filipinos now and then but each time they get their permanent jobs (after completing their house care giver term is over), we have to look for a new one, which we do understand.
chandresh: Lack of work in office:-)
chandresh: Hi happywoman, Would love to get some references for ladies who could help. We need someone to come over for 3-4 hrs every alternate week. Would want someone who does not need guidance after one or two visits and can be totally relied on both in terms of quality and honesty.
Fido: Just curious Chandresh - what brought you back ?
Aashu: I found that the ones for $ 15 - 18 are not experienced which is a big deal and if its thru a co., they keep changing cleaning lady on you so you have to explain everything over n over n over...


Where to buy gold

peacock1: Hi Fido, I have done so for my daughters wedding, in 2012, exchanged gold bars for jewelery from jewelery shop, where he had offered me equivalent to 24 Kt value of gold bar, in Rs @ the rate prevalent that day, against my bill for jewelery. But I am not so sure, if Tanishq , shall offer
Fido: So if some one buys a gold bar here say 100g and then visits India and goes to a jeweler in India say Tanishq and offers this bar against the jewelry he wishes to buy - would Tanishq adjust the full market price of the gold on that day ( 24 carat 100 gms ) OR ask for some other document OR would not adjust the full market price ? Any advice based on experience is appreciated ...
mrpandya: Hi THANKS FULL HOUSE AND PATRICKM
Full House: - IF you are melting the Gold to make ornaments, you will be better off buying the Gold in bars/biscuits. Because there are no taxes on the bars and it is a 100 dollars cheaper. KITCO seems to me the best bet, to buy from. Carry it on person and declare the same. What costs and fees are payable

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

geetakhanna: I usually pay $20/hr - they bring the cleaning supplies (except tissue and vaccum). They come for a minimum of 3hrs - single visit. Yet to find someone cheaper - even through Kijiji.
