Do you believe this?

febpreet: Thank you, Sir.
BlueLobster: Hmm...Your direct quote was "Why should this be a crime even?" :D Its not often we see criticism of stereotyping followed by a sweeping generalization in the next sentence. Nicely done.
febpreet: I didn't say that. Forced conversion is absolutely wrong, and reported to the Police and by the media aptly. My contention is the way the picture is painted and the whole affair is generalized again to one religion.
BlueLobster: Not sure I understand. Someone defrauded someone else and married them under a fake identity. After the marriage, they tried to force a religious conversion through physical abuse and harassment. This is not a crime and media should not report this?
BlueLobster: Which God? :D


How to re-establish Indian ties?

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
chandresh: I am surprised to note that to open a bank account your need all this? I opened two accounts with ICICI in Delhi last year - NRE and NRO, and all they needed was my Canadian passport and OCI. My address on the bank accounts is that of Canada.


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


Boore din (Bad times for BJP)

MKBLR: There is a good article in Deccan Herald. Status quoist Delhiites receive a culture shock LINK Dissolving the planning commission is a great idea.
dsd: Do not forget that BJP appeared a single largest party in bihar byelection . But it is good eye opener before assembly election . Sure BJP will come in power in all states including J&K
MKBLR: Add Karnataka to the list. CONgress won two seats out of three in the vidhan sabha by elections. Yeddy's son contested and won by mere 6,000 votes.
Nightmare: Modi and BJP have been thrashed soundly after Loksabha elections. First in Uttarakhand and now in Bihar. It now confirms that BJP win in Lok Sabha was solely due to Modi. In state elections, he is not a factor and BJP is being thrashed.

Cricket Equipment : Where to buy in GTA ?

Aashu: When there is a will u find way.....me and my son,,,only 2 of us play on concrete tennis court...in park across our house...just for fun, nothing serious...
san-hugo: My knowledge of cricket says , you cannot play alone. You need people matching your interest , time and motivation. Plu your immediate family needs to be engaged during that time in their own interests. Life is complicated now a days...
Fido: Thanks Folks ... will take a look @ Patel Bros. .. I was looking on Kijiji .. The runner carpet tip is great .... I guess tennis ball is great for recreational cricket .. Any other recommendations welcome...
seenimesh: You can easily get wickets , ball & bat for $40 at Patel Brothers
Delhite: You can find the bat and wickets at Indian grocery shops - I have seen at Asian Foods. For professional equipment, I have seen at a sports shop near Finch and Hwy 27. We put a old runner (carpet) with upside down on ground as pitch and use tennis ball.


Walsh Group construction scam

pratickm: missing out. I have won over $10M more than once :D All I had to do was provide them the account number and transit number of my bank account, and they would have deposited the money. Silly me, I never wrote back to them :o I have preserved the letters though for the sake of the nice, colorful Spanish stamps on them.
pratickm: TK, these guys are very likely not calling from Canada at all. The RCMP cannot do anything if they are sitting in Moldovia or Valparasio. With VOIP technology like MagicJack and Vonage these days, it is very easy to get a telephone number of any area code. You can have a 416 area code number, but call from Estonia.
JRF: Its surprising it has gone to the level of postal mail. Having seen so many CRA / IRS scams, We could ask them to provide the case number (every task has to have some ticket number), call the CRA main board (if available, verify the ticket) and then respond to the caller.


Uncertified Naturopaths

Full House: - It is a very nice topic to read and understand and also to discuss here. In so doing, I wanted to provide you with the wiki link here and please go through the section PRACTITIONERS and Licensure, where in you will find that some of the Provinces in Canada do not recognize them as yet as Medical Practitioners.
meghal: I wonder if BC government recognise naturopathy, when the field itself is pretty "iffy". And then they have their college and their certification For me, the term "certified naturopath" seems like an oxymoron LINK From the last names, it seems like this clinic was run by a desi couple.


HST rebate

Full House: - I KNOW WHAT YOU ARE ASKING... But there are so many numbers and dates to remember before I can delve a little deeper into it. Since it is a long week end coming up and I will be too busy to respond in detail, I will post to you the portion that you are looking for and the link to it also. PLEASE
Aashu: Hello CDS for all your responses till date... Another question :) If one buys a home from a builder (not first home bought but primary home for living) , (inventory house) and pays HST , does the HST rebate go to builder or purchaser ? Thanks


House cleaning help wanted

tamilkuravan: In this age of high unemployment, it is very easy to find such people in Kijiji. However, it may be tough to find a lady with an Indian sense. If there are any colleges near your house, for sure some Desi students will respond to Kijiji advt.. Just as a FYI, during the recession of 2008/09, I placed an advt in Kijiji for a helper to move the house for 4 hours at $ 10 an hour.
Delhite: I have seen many flyers people put up at the mail boxes situated at the end of the street and you may find from local house cleaning persons. You may also look for international students of local community college, of Indian origin who usually work part time to earn extra bucks. I have seen most of the nearby grocery shops and restaurants employing them and paying cash wages.
rajcanada: Chandreshji, is finding somebody to clean the house that difficult to find in GTA? Now occasional help during and after parties can be another story altogether.

The Obama Bank Shakedown

Nightmare: The world over, an interesting phenomena has been observed. Mentally sick and sickular liberals ruin the economy but create a solid vote bank by giving out doles to a select section of society. When the economy gets dumped due to stupid policies, they lose the power. Generally, a conservative leader would then assume power briefly, set things right and in the process would alienate the voters. In the subsequent election, again a liberal would come back on the basis of some populist schemes. Here is an interesting article on liberal God O LINK

Things we may have to face as a part of this community.

chandresh: Hi Aashu, do you mean to say that you would not respond to your child's question at all? And how would you do that?
Aashu: @chandresh : I meant with regards to my conversation with TK, regarding canada is a good country or not...not leading any where.... Q2 : none of the above.... lastly.....people are writing there views here after days months....my reaction was instantaneous
chandresh: Some interesting discussion!! Question for Aashu - why do you say that this is not leading anywhere? I think it is exposing us to various views and some really nice thoughts. It is different that those who have responded till now have a difference
san-hugo: Excellent point ! Plus It is our duty not to confuse our own kids by thrusting our yesteryear's values on top of what they are learning, rather grow our mindset together with theirs as they learn stuff from their exposures. There will be time when you will have to correct them but those issues will be different.


Lawyer n home inspector

Aashu: Got it chandreshji, Thanks !
chandresh: Aashu - I will send you a PM - this lawyer has been used by me - and Indian lady, and we are good friends now. I am going to use her for for next condo purchase which will be ready by end of 2015. Her office is in Scarborough but she lives not far from you in Vaughan.
Aashu: Thanks !
seenimesh: TJ Manoharan 647 680 0260. He owns A buyer's choice Home Inspection franchise. I did my home inspection with this guy. Seems to be good. I suggest you to contact him.
Aashu: Arre. all this discussion but no reference :(
san-hugo: Valid point ! Evaluation criteria will be subjective. Out of 5, the reference which is given more number of time can be chosen, Once I had option of choosing between 2 referred lawyers, I chose the lawyer who was nearer to my home so that in case there are frequent visits to be made, I am doing that comfortably.
geetakhanna: Opener did receive a reference from a senior member. Still - there was persistence on requesting for more references. What does that say? Was that reference not reliable? Why was it discarded or discounted? If let us say - 5 references were received by opener in this case - what will be the evaluation criteria for those 5 lawyers?

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, you need proof of local address for many things and that is what we are discussing. When I came to India, My office opened a salary account at SBI which had my address.
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 a call back from their bank officer after
chandresh: I am surprised to note that to open a bank account your need all this? I opened two accounts with ICICI in Delhi last year - NRE and NRO, and all they needed was my Canadian passport and OCI. My address on the bank accounts is that of Canada. The person also took my wife's and my photo thru her cell phone and used that to open the account.
