India Discussions


Modi going the Obama path

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
ramar2005: The real heroes are the people of the country for identifying and bringing in Modi as someone belonging to a different league. But of what use? People thought Modi as someone helpful in hunting with the hounds. But as of now, Modi has runaway with the hogs.


India diamond merchant boss distributes cars as gifts...

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,


Jayalalitha convicted and jailed

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.
ramar2005: Apart from her own misdeeds and unnecessary association with Mannargudi family, "Cauvery to Congress to North South divide everything" contributed to "amma's trip to prison". In all these, we have forgotten the real hero in the saga Shri Rahul Gandhi.


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.

adamthorat: Because the Indians in BC are mostly Punjabi's , especially in Surrey. But Indians in GTA they are more mixed , from pretty much all states..Gujjus , Marathi , Tamils, Mallus, Punjabis ..you name it ..they are all here. Hence so many Gujju , south Indian etc restaurants in GTA ..and not just North
wall-E: There is so much more choice in GTA than in BC. There are gujju restaurants. You can get pau bhaji nearly everywhere. There is a guju store for sweets, samosas, dhokla etc. It is white gold in oakville. Also I know there is a gujju place in brampton but cant remember the name. In Surrey, I haven't found any.
chittesh: Govardhan thal is indeed gobardhan thal. I made the mistake to going there Amish sweets is very good but its a factory so you will have to take out and it dosent stay open late in the night. When we go to amish we get the following 1) Mango pickle 2) Theplas 3) Srikhand 4) Vadas 5) Undhyu 6) Dhokla You cannot beat the taste of these items PS: If you are going to Amish also stop by golumbia video on your way (on Kennedy).


Moving to Mississauga as IT PM

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.

chandresh: the first two years I did not buy simply because I wanted to know where my job or private business would be, so should buy only after that (no use buying in Mississuaga when the job/business might take you to Pickering), and understand the city. Even otherwise, I have always been unlucky in real estate deals/share market! Next two years, put about 6-7 offers, but did not materialize since the prices kept going up (multiple offers).

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

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.

List of Funny Indian Superstitions

RaOne: A few more: - If a bridge or house collapses during construction, it means the place is asking for human sacrifice. - A Lord Ganesha idol or picture with the trunk turning to the left (from the viewer's point of view) is ominous. - Put a knife
RaOne: Here are some more: - If a baby is crying continuously, it is probably suffering from 'Buri Nazar' or evil eye. The solution is simple, take a left shoe/chappal made of leather, hold it in your left hand and then rotate it around the baby three times counter-clock wise. - Pregnant women should not go near an abandoned well or an old Peepal tree.
ramar2005: Superstitions also has family roots. Usually, anything associated with rituals during death is avoided on normal days or on happy occasions like a wedding. Example, pradkshina and apradakshina. Superstitions when followed regularly becomes customs
febpreet: There exists a thinnest line.
RaOne: I don't get what your point is. Look, the idea behind the post was to make fun of the ridiculous beliefs. It was not meant to make fun of people's faith in Goddess Laxmi or whatever god they believe in. We have to distinguish "Shraddha" from "Andha-shraddha".
