Preposterous!!!

DELHI INDIAN: No words to describe. As discussed in other thread, statues and bullet trains are not need of an hour. why not spend all this amount in cleaning of rivers, women safety, controlling corruption, developing

febpreet: Couldn't agree more! Time to do away with all this. One more: Immersion of heavily painted/chemically smeared idols (bigger the better) in the rivers and ocean - thus polluting whatever is left. Then, we blame politicians and system left, right, and center.
san-hugo: India is country of utterly illogical cultural (and political ) practices. Instead of constructive spending for betterment of community, country and poors , Indians spend money on : Marriages - A 'tradition' of throwing money down the drains for pure show off.


A LONG WAY HOME

san-hugo: Good real life story, Nothing inspirational though.
Full House: I was browsing through an old TIME magazine and came across this book. May be some one already has it. I am sure that they are available in the local Library also. So, if you do get a chance please borrow it and read it.


The Goddess of small minds

febpreet: I absolutely agree with you this one time only.
Nightmare: One book and a Prize has made this moron "famous". She has opined on all kinds of subjects; from politics, economics, sociology, environment and many other diverse topics. The Goddess of small minds has, probably to be relevant in media, made acerbic attack on Mahatma Gandhi.


BJP Budget

ramar2005: The UNO report says that more than one third of the world's poor live in India (Ref Deccan Herald news item dated July 17th). One previous day news item in the same paper stated that Reliance Industries
DELHI INDIAN: Agreed. Improvement in police and judiciary is very important. I will also add healthcare and education. These are the basic things that every citizen should have. Till now, I don't see much of an effort and solid road map from them on these issues.
MKBLR: Let's look at the reality. Modi cant do everything. There are Congress ruled states that will oppose anything Modi proposes. At the same time, Modi can do a lot since he has the majority in LS and has the backing of Amma in the RS.
dhaikin: Its like expecting a girl to deliver a baby the next week of having her first sex. Comm'on get real and be practical. Grandchildren turn is far-far away. By that time the whole world will be looking

CITIZENSHIP- question

dimple2001: For proof of CAD citizenship and PP, you can contact the Cdn Embassy. For India, to obtain OCI, PIO, you'll have to check the relevant websites. Beyond that, I don't know.
peacock1: Hi Dimple, Do you have any idea what is to be done, to get the paper for stay in India.
dimple2001: The child can either be an Indian citizen (by birth) or a Canadian citizen (from her parent), but not both. If they choose Canadian citizenship, they need to ensure that the child's Indian documents are obtained as well (PIO, OCI, visa, etc).
peacock1: Hi CD friends, My daughter , Canadian citizen, is married to an Indian citizen and staying in India, She has given birth to a daughter, in India, and she is intending to obtain canadian passport (which she is entitled to), my question is what is her original citizenship? As she is Indian by birth, Thanks for your valuable inputs.


Real Estate purchase "Vacant Possession" Clause

dimple2001: Opinion. Sorry, happy to say I didn't have to go through this.
mick37: Thanks Dimple..are your comments based on similar experience or this is just an opinion.
dimple2001: If you have a vacant possession clause, then you have the option to refuse to close the house until the seller provides you with a vacant house. It is the seller's legal obligation to fulfill the conditions of possession that has been agreed upon. That, is your protection. If you close the house with the tenants in there, you, as the new owner inherit the headache.
mick37: Thanks Murali. I am sure some of my CD friends would have gone through similar situations and therefore trying to understand the options buyer has. Would really appreciate 2 cent advice from our CD friends or Real Estate experts/lawyers.
tamilkuravan: Consult a lawyer. CD's can only share personal experiences and opinions. Even Real Estate experts many not be able to help. Murali


CDMA cell phone to send to India

tamilkuravan: Other websites are : Rediff shopping, Naptool, Amazon. I basically use the 2 listed and service is Good.

smiley1: thanks all Will check the website provided by rajcanada.
tamilkuravan: Go for RajCanada's idea. Cellphone are cheap and the latest models are also available. Just buy in India and save some $'s. Murali The Krishna
rajcanada: Why do you want to send it from here? You probably have more choices in India, regional language customization settings if they need and warranty if you buy in India and you do not have to worry if the phone will work in India or not. If you know a particular model is supported on the CDMA network in India, you can buy it online too from India based websites such as Flipkart.


Indian Jewellery shops in GTA

tamilkuravan: Indian jewelry shops are located at Gerrard street and then scattered around toronto (Islington ave). Indian Jewelry shops charge a fixed amount (Gold + making+wastage+ profit). You will not know the break up. They will negotiate. Or You can try some Iranian shops on Younge (near finch). They sell 18K gold and you can negotiate the total price.
sathishbaburaj: Hello CD's I am looking to buy gold bangles for my wife.Is there any good Indian jewelry shops in and around GTA. This would be my first time to buy any gold item and I am not sure what to consider before I go to any jeweler.what are the extra charges do they charge apart from gold price.Also I would

New immigrant: Thank you all for your inputs, very helpful indeed. We are travelling from Dubai and will surely keep these in mind.
Full House: - October is a long way from today. So, it is difficult to see that far ahead in the short term rentals market. But you can surely see a few good places and locations and drop them an e-mail and get a response. Just to see if they will hold a place for your date of arrival. DO NOT PAY for any reservation

Family Class sponsors/applicants needed for PhD study

BethMartin: Hi Everyone, I'm looking for Family Class applicants to interview as part of my PhD research at Ryerson University in Toronto: The purpose of my study is to examine the Canadian Family Class immigration stream, to determine which aspects of the family class immigration stream work well and which aspects need improvement. As part of the study I am carrying out interviews with individuals from 30 different families who are applying for reunification through the Canadian family class stream of immigration (or who completed the process in the last five years) about their experiences of the application process. If you are in the process of sponsoring one or more family members to Canada, or if you completed this process within the last five years, you can participate in this study. If you agree to participate: - I will ask you to talk to me about the processes you have already gone through (e.g.

Appliances with 220 v, should I bring !

Hasni: FH and other fellows, thanks for clearing my concepts again, so I will not bring any electrical appliance, no way. Thanks FH for a beautiful mathematical description, cheers But I will bring my lap top, ipad, handy cam :)
Full House: - Let me do some math together with you. May be at that time we both will agree that it is not that good a decision to lug them from there. A good suitcase weighs TEN Pounds. An Expensive one, being costly will be durable and will weigh SEVEN Pounds.
Many: Bring the low power kitchen devices if you already possess them in your country(don't buy now). A 300 watt transformer ordered online and delvered to my home in Toronto cost me CDN $40 six months ago. No, do not buy the transformer in your country; it is too much weight etc
mrpandya: Hi I am a TECH. I would say,, dont bring any equipment's from other country, if the wattage of equipment is high, u need to buy a converter with high watt capacity and that will be very costly, in the same price u could buy used one from here. only bring that one which has low watt.

Confusion regarding NOC 4011 (University Professors and Lecturers)

vijitsharma: yeah, thanks full house. I'll do the best I can.
Full House: - I am an optimist. Otherwise you will not see me here and also help each and everyone with their daily hurdles. They all look ominous and insurmountable till a little bit of help and suggestion gets them going in the right direction. Won't it be nice to see an answer for your problems with your first cup of coffee in the morning?.
vijitsharma: Of course I'm serious about migrating to Canada. But here you both (full house and san-hugo) have different views. I think it's better to apply directly instead of any consultants, but isn't it important to make sure whether I fall under 4011 categoryor not?
Full House: Are you really serious to migrate to Canada. If you are, then spend a few bucks. Do not use any Consultants. Just the fees to get in. You will be thrilled to get in and also get a suitable post ANYWHERE, to get you started. Here in Canada, the teachers work 5 days a week.
