India diamond merchant boss distributes cars as gifts...

DELHI INDIAN: Free lunch. LOL. This happens in most of the companies here.
tamilkuravan: My employer is already paying me a salary which is much beyond my expectations. So I am going to return my christmas bonus back, in case I get it. Murali The Krishna
chittesh: It is a fine gesture. This merchat has a 6000 crore business (more than $1 billion) and he pays most of the employees 7000-8000 rupees a month. No wonder he has enough spare cash lying around. My
RBO: A diamond merchant in India's Gujarat state has given his employees cars, jewellery and homes worth $8m (£5m) as a reward for meeting targets. Savji Dholakia, who runs a diamond export company in Surat,

ramar2005: Probably JJ anticipated the way this trial was going. She implemented Amma schemes like subsidised canteen, water etc. Apart from this she had been decisive in handling of issues like that of Veerappan.
adamthorat: The FAT COW is out on bail and making a mockery of the Indian judicial system. For the sake of tokenism these politicians go to jail for a couple of days and even for those few days they are treated like royalty in there.
Nightmare: Hey Joker, Rahul did it to supposedly improve his image. It was destined to fail and in any case the President would have sent it back for reconsideration.
MKBLR: Thank god that she got bail from SC and moved to Chennai. She was a headache to the Bangalore police. In fact the chief of the jail where she was kept had not gone home since Sept 27. People in TN who came to support her were paid to do so.


Modi going the Obama path

DELHI INDIAN: Totally agree. No major steps taken against the biggest problem in country (Corruption) and it also seems that bringing back money will also be a dream for country (another false promise made just to in to power).
san-hugo: BJP is digging its own grave by doing dilly dally on black money issue. The awareness among voters is increasing and patience decreasing. Parties need to be aware of this. This is BJP's last tenure.
wall-E: In general I was very pro Modi, but I have to agree .. there is very little he has done as yet except some publicity stunts. - No concrete steps against corruption. - Even no concrete steps against keeping India clean except trying to appeal to mere citizens.
ramar2005: In an interview to NDTV on 21/10/14, our FM Mr.Jaitley had mentioned that when the names of the black money account holders that were to be released "shortly", it would be embarrassment for the


Pakistan Border Conflict

adamthorat: Kashmir is definitely better off with India than Pakistan or being independent. If Pakis were not sending and training terrorist over there, they would live peacefully with India. They are not suffering
Nightmare: I did say that my English is quite poor. Please let me know some alternate word to describe a person who is advocating that Kashmir should secede. I use those kind of "rhetoric" when I find that the person is lying or distorting facts.
BlueLobster: NM - It has been pointed out to you repeatedly that you need to tone down your name-calling and rhetoric while you're making your point. You may think that this "tough" language makes you seem
ramar2005: Kashmir is following sufi and shia islam, diamterically opposite to the wahabi sunni islam of pakistan. The Pak Occupied Kashmir is living in stone age, hardly any economic development and their Kashmiris under terror of the Punjabi sunni muslim Pak army.

HAPPY DIWALI

tamilkuravan: Happy Diwali to all (though belated). I was pleasently surprised to receive an international call from Full House to wish me Diwali. It was a nice experience talking to him and also this made me feel at home (Canada and CD). Murali The Krishna
sudesingh: In and around Toronto, most Gurdwara's did not have any fireworks, in honor of Cpl Cirillo. At Samosa & Sweet Factory on Albion Road, they had a Mithai Mela at the adjoining Banquet Hall. OMG...Never seem so much mithai at one time. Their prices ranged from 2.99 to 5.99, with 3.99 being the average for most common ones.
happywoman36: New immigrants don't know whre to get help frm whn they are new. I didn't know abt diwali sweets I.e home made like karanji..chakli and besan ladoo etc. Aftr 2-3 yrs, I cme to know about these shopz in Brampton. We r not talking about normal sweet shops. my post is always about helping new comers.
wall-E: There are indian sweets everywhere .. why advertise? Happy Diwali. How was diwali in your neighbourhoods? In my neighbourhood of Surrey, there were a few homes lit up (including mine). Some fireworks and a few loud ones. Decent but last year seemed better. I think the police were strict on fireworks this year. Now to quickly move from Diwali lights to Halloween decos.


Terrorist attacking Canadian parliament

tamilkuravan: Guys, The world is composed of 6 billion + people. Things like this will happen. Donot make a big deal out of it. yes. I agree that in canada's case, uncontrolled immigration will bring problems like this. You canot selectively choose immigration possibilities. If you allow Indians and chinese to come, then you also have to allow pakistani's and Middle eastern people.
ramar2005: People were not as if converted day before yesterday, practised the new religion yesterday and are very enthused today that they do not want to leave this new religion. It must have happened nearly 1000 years ago for people yearning to get government job. As of today, elders in this religion must come out openly and say that their Holy Book teaches that all religions lead to God.
Nightmare: ====================================================== I do not claim to be expert. However, I did read that the practise has religious sanction. That is the command. It is not that they just kill Yezidis. They do offer a better option to convert to Islam and embrace truly the God’s desire. The blame, if you are implying any, should be on non-believers.


Moving to Mississauga as IT PM

tamilkuravan: Chandresh, Though I moved to Canada in 2002, I think it was around 2004 or 2005 that found CD so I was not there at your house party / get together. I was at one at SS house manybe in 2005 when LANA was around. Murali The krishna
tamilkuravan: Adam. Sorry. A typo when tying around midnight (IST). It is 1.2 Lakhs a year. It is not the costliest school but a prestegious one. I have heard that in B'lore there are decent international schools that cost around Rs. 8000 a month. So this works to around 1 lakh a year. An advantage of these international
adamthorat: Agreed with all the points above. But what's the craze of International schools in India ? And paying 1.2 L a month ..MONTH ! For that . People don't even pay for that much over here per month for private schools. So his rent per month is 1/6 th the cost of his kids monthly education ! That's just nuts ! Why can't they just send them to other TOP private schools in India ? Which are equally good, just not international.


FPEG.

ramar2005: Thanks FH. Literally revolution on the energy front. Then there is this news on the shale gas. USA has cut down oil imports from OPEC by 30% since 2008, tapping its own sources. That is being touted as one of the reasons for the petroleum prices drop and unable to recover. There is LED light which are using only 20% energy compared to the conventional filament lamps.
Full House: What the heck is that Acronym? Please read on. It is a working model currently in the developmental stage made by TOYOTA... LINK NJOY, FH.


Recall of Application of permanent residence by London Office

Full House: - We do not have a total knowledge of your case, your file or your Application for entry into Canada. You had an interview with CIC at a location, Abu Dhabi, in your case. Not knowing if it was a success or not and if it was in your favour, the letter must state that it was in your favour, if they were to reverse their decision.
78imranahmed: hello, I applied for Skilled Worker Class by centralised intake office in Jan,2012. In March,2012 I received acceptance email. In August, 2014 I received an email for an interview in Abu Dhabi which was conducted on 1st October. On 21st October I received a refusal email by visa officer & 2nd email stating that LDN IMMIGRATION would like to recall the message ( full subject line of refusal email). I don't understand this?

Salute to Captain Cirillo !

Vandematram: Dear Captain.Nathan Cirillo !. I would like to salute you on behalf of my fellow Ignorant Desi's salute you for service to Canada!. We salute you for your bravery, standing up for freedom which represents Canada !. We are known as the Global Peacekeepers and also the refuge for the poor, needy and punished all over the world. This is proven by the Tamils from Srilanka, Ukrainians, the Christian minority persecuted by ISIS in Iraq and the list goes on and on. We are sad but overjoyed to see thousands of our fellow countrymen and women line up the highway of heroes to wave the Canadian flag and sing O! Canada when your hearse drove that way. I'm sorry and apologize to you that we could not spot any Desi's in the crowd thanking you and saluting you!. We are always like this as even when our Indian parliament was attacked nobody thanked the heroes who defended the parliament and laid down the life in defense of our democracy!.


LANIAKEA...IT IS THERE IN THE SKY.

Full House: Hula Hula, the Hawaiian guitars and then the Fish and Poy..Now Laniakea.... Where in the heavens are we? We have been in the same place all along, but it is nice for some one to drop in and tell us the exact spot. Mmmm, the exact spot you say! Yes.. Read on.. For those of us that that get lost in the local shopping mall, stargazers have revealed the ultimate ‘You Are Here’ map ever created. LINK It takes Eight from the Sun and One from the Moon, for the light to travel to this Earth. When it gets into light years I find that I haven't got the time to get into it. But there are people who do this for a living and it gets exciting when they explain and with pictures and 3D viewers.

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


R.I.P Robbie Baby !

Vandematram: Robin Williams passes away!. R.I.P Robbie Baby !. You were one great act. We will miss you !.

OCI application in BLS Brampton / Toronto

kulb: In the US, they replaced BLS with another agency C&K after there was a huge uproar among the Indian diaspora about shoddy service from BLS; there were even news reports of applicant documents going missing at BLS office. Here in Canada, they have retained BLS as I guess the local desi community here is not so vocal about their complaints about BLS.
John Doe: I applied for surrender certificate today at the BLS Brampton office. Despite a ton of patience and mentally level setting expectations for the day, it just felt like I was so not prepared for the ordeal. There were atleast 300 people in the waiting area.
adamthorat: Mine was about 2 months. Including PP cancellation , Surrender Certificate , OCI . Surrender certificate , nothing but a cash grab ..nice scheme. My old expired Indian PP which I have never used , except to come to Canada , needed to be cancelled..LOL ..& I had to pay for it .
seenimesh: We submitted our application on Apr 26 at Toronto BLS office and collected OCI from the same office in last week of July 2014. straight forward process.


Jayalalitha convicted and jailed

ramar2005: Probably JJ anticipated the way this trial was going. She implemented Amma schemes like subsidised canteen, water etc. Apart from this she had been decisive in handling of issues like that of Veerappan. Now, the poor are entirely with her. The other major party DMK has become property of one family.
adamthorat: The FAT COW is out on bail and making a mockery of the Indian judicial system. For the sake of tokenism these politicians go to jail for a couple of days and even for those few days they are treated like royalty in there. Its like a 5 star hotel for them, then they are out on bail like nothing happened. What a joke ?
Nightmare: Hey Joker, Rahul did it to supposedly improve his image. It was destined to fail and in any case the President would have sent it back for reconsideration.
MKBLR: Thank god that she got bail from SC and moved to Chennai. She was a headache to the Bangalore police. In fact the chief of the jail where she was kept had not gone home since Sept 27. People in TN who came to support her were paid to do so. As long as there is money, they will do it.
