Mera Bharat mahaan.

tamilkuravan: Lol !!! Thanks AT for the compliment. I have always been short and pot bellied. But after reaching 45 and counting up, looks hardly matters. I am looking to secure my finances for my future and die a dignified death (at the appropriate time). Lol, once again. Murali
adamthorat: That's bcoz you look like Aishwairya Rai and you work your charms on ALL the top officials and don't need to pay bribes:clap: But not everone looks like that, some people look like TK :D :clap: :cry: :cuss: and have to pay bribe:cry:
happywoman36: Frankly speaking, in 2000, I was dealing with all top authorities like RBI top official for remittance, bank officials and shipping top authorities in Bombay port and JNPT, I never paid any bribe to anybody.
Fido: You know many a times I have wondered why there's so less corruption here ... I know AT would start his rant now :) ... but at a general day to day level , you don't offer bribe or under the table favors


Quota for Patels ?

ramar2005: The easy way for the government for stopping the agitation would be to give a few % and later have it stuck down by the Supreme Court like in the case of another socially and economically highly respected community.
hchheda: Unfortunately, this does not seem to be true in his own words : LINK Talking about disrupting milk
san-hugo: Thanks Vagg for the share. Writing is good but emotions are bit communal which is unnecessary. It looses its core message that way. Still its a hard hitting poetry for current times !
vagg: Got this on whatsapp: आओ मिलकर आग लगाएं,नित नित नूतन स्वांग

AutomotiveEngineer moving to Toronto. Plz help with job search in my field!

tamilkuravan: Lol Adam, This was what was told to me in 2002 itself. Unfortunately, I was 6 months in labour job and hence could not do this. I got my profession job after 6 months but put with chinese and east european and Egyptians (who could not speak very good english) and hence lost it. The catch 22 is, when you are searching for a job, who do you speak this to? and when you get a job and push you in a corner, then how do you develop it.
adamthorat: Yes TK is right. You need to fake Gora lifestyle, even if you don't like it to make networking contacts and to get promotions. You have to go to a bar, club, play golf, go sking with goras. Goras like separate checks, they never pay for each other. Also laugh at their stupid jokes even if they are not funny and you don't get them.
adamthorat: Yes TK is right. No such thing will happen. Gora will get his uneducated girl friend or his high school drop out ex-girl friend, when a vacancy opens in his company as opposed to a desi engineer. Now if the gora is getting paid ( referral money ) or some head hunter type of money, he might give some


Buying Vacant Land in Ontario

tamilkuravan: See how the town will grow and how the planners have thought about this. It may usually be online and is called as " Development plan". In this, they might list potential services needed like airports, wind mills, industries, Highways planned etc... So based on this only the town will develop. But donot think that you are the only one who have come up with this idea.
adamthorat: I think like always with RE , location location location will be the key. 90 % is that, rest all will be only 10 %. If you get that one thing right in RE, generally you will make money. Not just location as of today, but down the road say 10 yrs from now, you need lot of research, foresight, vision
adamthorat: Depends where you are buying. It might go up or not, but one thing good about Canada is that its safe :) , NO one will cheat you or encroach upon your land and take it away forcibly through goons, politicians, land mafia etc, like India. So atleast you don't have to worry about that :). Law and order,


How many non desi friends do you have ?

tamilkuravan: Lol. Not at all. I used to work in an Italian firm that used to hire Eastern Europe people and Chinese who did not know a word of English. Of course, I have also worked with Gora's. Some Gora's are not as friendly as we think they would be. Some donot like our style of working / talking etc.. and so seldom are close to us.
adamthorat: I have heard TK was quite popular with the Goris over here :)
adamthorat: I am NOT talking about co-workers or just some superficial casual acquaintenance. But actual non desi friends you have i.e you hangout with them and/or are friends with them. I have 1 Italian friend, 1 Guyanese friend, 1 black friend ( from the Islands ) and 1 Sri-Lankan friend. So technically only 1 White friend.


subjects to be taken at school for engineering !

tamilkuravan: Elmer, I was not talking about India. I am taking about the West (Canada, USA, Germany and the like). Still Engineering is a very job giveable profession in the west. Donot think cheaply of Engineering courses in India esp. south. Many private universities advertize that they got 3700 placements in one day (TCS, Infy, Cognizent).
adamthorat: Yes Engineers in India do MBA and then go into Finance and banking type of jobs . Even Civil engineers, Mechanical engineers will try to change their line to IT and try to become software engineers even though their degree is not Computer engineering.
elmer fudd: Those days are gone. Engineers have become a laughing stock in India(especially, in the south). In India, fresh mechanical engineering graduates are repairing tractors in rural areas. Some unemployed engineering graduates have turned to mugging(chain snatching). Engineering as a profession has lost


CD eating habits

tamilkuravan: To continue : I used to have 2 nos. of Toonie Tuesday on Tuesdays at the KFC. For one 3 years (2002-2005), My lunch was 2 Wendy's value beef burgers and 1 chilli ( It was $ 1.39+ tax then). Sometime at the Italian office, I used to go to Quizno's or Other specialized joints with Non Gora's and Non Desi's. My office boos used to buy food and eat at the office account.
tamilkuravan: LOl Adam, While in Canada, I used to eat South Indian food at home as well as takeaways (like Pak biriyani from Dundas -Hurontario & String hoppers from Newin centre). At home, I eat with hand and lick my plate too as the taste is too good. I used to work at a Italian's office. So often had Pizza's and chicken wings.
adamthorat: TK only has Idlys, Dosa , Vadai ( aka Medhu Vada ) He also goes to KFC once in a while as its a status symbol :)
adamthorat: Have you changed your eating habits or cooking habits after coming here ? Or have they remained the same as back home as in India ? Do you tend to eat out more after coming here, especially stuff like fast food joints like KFC, McDonalds, Pizza, Tim Hortons etc , or its same , more or less than what

Home renovation trade people in Nepean-Ottawa

groupbuyebox: My aunt needs to renovate her basement in Nepean. She wants to make extra rooms and make windows in basement. Any of Ottawa people know someone in that area? I am in GTA and do not know any one there. Was checking Kijiji but it is better to find someone with references for old people. Are there any Punjabi people doing that in Ottawa? Here you get many of them easily ;) thanks.


IT IS TIME WE RAN THESE DIESEL CARS ON WATER. Mmmm Dreamers...

Full House: NO... It is not a dream. Please read on... Audi is making fuel from air and water Audi has begun production of a synthetic diesel fuel made from water, carbon dioxide, and hydrogen. Unlike fossil fuels, which release additional carbon into the atmosphere, Audi’s “e-diesel,” which is being produced at a plant in Dresden in conjunction with the German alternative energy company Sunfire, has a net-zero carbon footprint because it is made with carbon dioxide taken from the air. It’s not the first carbon-neutral fuel, but it’s being hailed by the German government, which provided support for the plant, as an important milestone in the movement for cleaner energy. “If we can make widespread use of CO2 as a raw material, we will make a crucial contribution to climate protection and the efficient use of resources, and put the fundamentals of the ‘green economy’ in place,” Johanna Wanka, Germany’s minister of education and research, said in an Audi news release announcing the production of the initial batch of e-diesel.

adamthorat: Even if its just peanuts, NOW both of you have a job :). What counts more in Canada is the stability of the job, more than how much it pays. A lower paying job which is more secure and stable, with NO chance of layoff is much better than a higher paying


Is Canada moving towards another recession or what?

Monica.admin: FIDO and HAPPYWOMAN36 - you both are behaving like small kids. This thread is being locked for now.
happywoman36: Come, since I already told my husband about u and TK, u are welcome Fido. I don't hide anything frm my husband. :cheers:
Fido: You don't know a thing and I would not disclose them here... You certainly don't know that they could have been entirely different and are a cynical idiot to assume things .... Unlike your friend HW36 , I would not tread the fine personal line as much as possible .
Fido: I could also say the same thing about you ... Why do you have a habit of dragging family members in when you are not able to defend yourself ?? Is it necessary to cross the fine personal line every time ... Do you want to be repaid in your own coin with interest eh ?
mcg7: OK Good..:) Stay away from such person in future
Fido: No that is something which you do for your lack of proper technical usage .


AMWAY BUSINESS NETWORKING

ramar2005: In this planet, everything beyond our village panchayath appear to be scam. But people call it economy.
JRF:
JRF: Could be the most unfortunate thing this generation is cursed with. I don't even like Linkedin.... Social media is presented as such you can not live without it.
adamthorat: Hindsight is always 20/20 . At that time most people got sucked into it and didn't even realise its a scam and provably thought its legit. Nortel, Enron, Dot Com bust, all scams from 10-15 yrs back, but it felt so right and Nothing wrong at that time
dimple2001: Yep, reading half a decade old resurrections are quite entertaining.
JRF: Out of curiosity, just checked the first page and few initial posts. Very funny.
adamthorat: Stay away from all these scams. They are nothing but MLM or Pyrammid type of scams.
kzaidi:
manserwadekar: Gopalpai song was honoring your request, but reading Meghal's love for Himesh in the past posts, I suggested she would enjoy listening it.;). The way Chandreshji is looking for you, and your reluctance to respond, both the songs fit well to the situation.
