Modi Vs Congress (?) vs Kejriwal : Who will be the next PM of India in 2014?

tamilkuravan: Good come back, Nightmare !!! But be decent, Please. Murali
Nightmare: My acquaintance in Delhi who is working as servant in Kejri house once found Kejri, Yadav and Ilmi in bed lying naked together. Do not be childish and quote your thinking as hearsay. You are a typical dumb AAPian who has conceded defeat.
Nightmare: AAP guys are cry babies and dramatists. Certainly many of them are well educated in English and hence they have very high opinion of themselves. Unfortunately in slave mentality India, those who speak
RBO: if this is not an interview than are you saying below is a Sensational news?:) LINK who cares about Qamar Waheed Naqvi?


Survey says NDA will get 275 seats

dsd: Muslims have been wooed by congress and other parties to protect their nonsense!! Minorities must realize that they must fall in the main stream and resort to development. Nobody can hurt their interests as the citizen of India.
dsd: Me , U and NAMO
Nightmare: Lol! This guy has very weird logic. When muslims vote on religious identity, they are secular and BJP is communal. From the multiple posts of this guy, we can conclude that he is deficient in logic and reasoning.
san-hugo: and Why united muslims will not vote for BJP ?? BJP is also capable of appeasement afterall. Thats the reason, BJP due to its origin and RSS link is communal. I personally wanted this party to
dsd: Modi /BJP is not a symbol of communalism . Ofcourse minority community will see them as you said . Majority community see them as a party who can lead India on a path of development and self pride .Any how there will be long discussion on that topic which I dont want to start .


Buying land in India- How safe is it ?

dimple2001: Empty lands sprout weeds, in this case, squatters who would likely be impossible to get rid of. I know of a case where the acres belonged to a company (owned by rich dudes) and people had built houses (not just some shacks) on those lands.
Rajagopal: TK bhai: You are living in India and asking Canadians, if it is safe to buy land in India???? 1) My advice, if you are buying such a large property, you must build a 6 foot wall around the perimeter and hire a tough looking chowkidar to look after it.
tamilkuravan: To add to it, what I was told by my America returned friend is that the process was simple. Steps are as follows : 1. Seller is my mentor from Australia. He badly needs cash for his other projects and hence the need to sell. 2.
tamilkuravan: Dear CD's, I am sure that you must be knowing that people who owned real estate in India since 2002, are now millionaires. Also I am aware that many CD's have bought land in India and keeping it for appreciation


Arvind Kejriwal slapped again while campaigning in Delhi....

Rajagopal: If this was a Kargil war, "AK-49" Kejriwal would have resigned from his PM post on the 49th day and demonstrated in front of the kargil peaks with a Broom in his hand and a topi on his head.
BlueLobster: LINK Ironic, isn't it?
MKBLR: Now AK is realizing that resigning the CM post was a bad decision. Too late. Delhites wont give AAP a second chance. You can't fight everyone everywhere on a real time. BJP is already pushing Kiran Bedi’s name for the CM post for Delhi.
dsd: Right after each attack on 'Kejriwal the default reaction is that BJP organised it(although Kejriwal wiped congress from delhi assembly as compared to BJP which was still largest party). Now that Kejriwal met his attacker and it seems from the photo that the attacker apologised(haath jod ke).

less trading commission for stocks ?

Vancouverite: I would also suggest Virtual Brokers. Have been with them for a while now, can't complain. In some ways it is even better than Questrade though I have an account with both.
pratickm: On the cash balance of $1,500. However, I doubt if any brokerage these days gives interest on cash balances of $1,500.
dimple2001: Interest is paid on the cash balance, not on the money invested in stocks. So, it will be $500.
DRM: I am new to buying stocks in canada. I am also trying to start slow ( i would probably be doing 10 trades in a month avg) and also would like to be a buy and keep kind of a guy. What account would you suggest? Also, say I have 2000 dollars in TFSA and I use 1500 to buy stocks. If there is an interest of about 1.25% would that be on the 2000 (500 + 1500) or would it be only on the 500?
jigz787: No cash account needed. You deposit funds directly into trading account. Norml trading account is called margin account. You can also open TFSA and trade from TFSA without paying tax but they don' pay interest. Its more like Tax Free Trading Account.


visitor visa for parents

Eugene182: Its easier to get a Super Visa, the approval rate is much higher (85%) as opposed to Visitors to Canada (40%).
smiley1: Hi For Parents visior visa, do they have to send the file to VFS delhi by courier or they need to go personally to submit the file? I am planning to call them in April? when should we start the process.
jetflash: @ Thanks fh. @ Visitor visa. I havent applied for supervisa.

Colony of wives in Mississauga !

Full House: - PLEASE READ and UNDERSTAND THE ARTICLE, and the PEOPLE WHO ARE SUFFERING DUE TO THE AGE OLD SYSTEM THAT HAS BEEN IN EXISTENCE HERE IN CANADA. Will we find a solution after they read this?! It is a sensitive issue and I can write my thesis on it for a Doctorate. So, try and tred on it like you walk on the egg shells.
tamilkuravan: Hasni: Most of the condo's in Webb drive has these kind of people that you are looking for but (as in 2011), there were not much and many of these ladies were with spouses. But Webb drive is such a peaceful place. You can try in that area. Avoid Hurontario street (for the sale of cheap prices). Murali
JRF: There isn't really such a place, The square one of mississauga is sometime referred as Begumpura. Why, men who work in abroad found the area safe to leave their wife and kids as the area has - a lot of Condominiums, - high rise apartments, - Square one Shopping mall and desi groceries, - a


Slow Performance, Any Suggestions

Garvo Gujarati: Pushing the thread on top.
Garvo Gujarati: Guys, Recently I have been noticing that some pages take too long to load. I tried to diagnose and it seems something wrong with php. The page with HTML only like LINK loads superfast, but whenever I have a PHP page call it is slow. It also doesn't look like database connection is an issue as I test it with a page without database connection and that too is slow.


What is your story in Canada?

JRF: I could give you thousands of examples of educated struggling in USA, Middle east, India etc., etc., I wouldn't want to touch the raw nerve as there could be different reasons behind. What do you think about the people from non-IT / Finance background, who have posted here. As mentioned by one poster, you are always the first guy if any one posts fresh from abroad.
tamilkuravan: Something that appeared recently on Redflagdeals.com. It seems to have some relationship with the topic that we are discussing. Murali ********************************************************* I don't know if this thread is suitable for this category,but since it has everything to do with jobs/career, I thought I would post it here.

EXPRESS ENTRY

Full House: STARTING IN JANUARY 2015... The 2014 Immigration Levels Plan makes way for Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) to transition to this new system in January 2015 by continuing to reduce backlogs across the board. This will enable Canada to begin using EOI to identify the best candidates from day one. EOI works in two steps. Prospective immigrants would indicate their interest in coming to Canada by providing information electronically about their skills, work experience and other attributes. Individuals who meet certain eligibility criteria will have their “expressions of interest” placed in a pool and ranked against others already in the pool. CIC would only invite the best candidates, including those with in-demand skills or with job offers, to apply for a visa. Expressions of interest that are not chosen after a period of time may be removed from the pool.

HEARTBLEED

Full House: FIRST I thought some one was stealing all of our sweethearts. After reading more about it and still learning, I thought I should bring it to everyone's attention, so that we all can protect ourselves from this drastic catastrophe, a big huge sinkhole that they left for us to discover today. Who found the Heartbleed Bug? This bug was independently discovered by a team of security engineers (Riku, Antti and Matti) at Codenomicon and Neel Mehta of Google Security, who first reported it to the OpenSSL team. Codenomicon team found heartbleed bug while improving the SafeGuard feature in Codenomicon's Defensics security testing tools and reported this bug to the NCSC-FI for vulnerability coordination and reporting to OpenSSL team. Why it is called the Heartbleed Bug? Bug is in the OpenSSL's implementation of the TLS/DTLS (transport layer security protocols) heartbeat extension (RFC6520).


H-1B spouses may get to work in US

MKBLR: LINK “From the statement, it appears that spouses of H-1B visas are unlikely to get a blanket approval to work in the US. Only certain category of spouses of H-1B visa holders - mainly from the science and tech category - are likely to get the nod.” Hope they make the rule quick and get the interested and qualified spouses to work in US.

febpreet: I am in IT (No Engg. degree, but Commerce/MBA), but took me about 2 years to land in an IT job of my liking - believe it or not. I already knew that the immigration would bring itself lots of struggle so I was full prepared before my move. Never found


Speeding

coolvip: I did not get disclosure after first request. 3 weeks before trial I sent another request after talking to clerk. She had acknowledged that they had received the request and did not get anything from Prosecutor's office. Still did not get anything. Went
vivek901: Thanks Hiren, I had requested disclousure, I didnt receive full and I argued on that today, prosecution told thats all i can get. I was ready with questions which I wanted to ask the officer. But I one imp thing,After watching some cases today i found that couple of tickets were dismissed on the grounds that they were filed after 7 days.
hchheda: That is quite unusual but nothing to be upset about. I am not sure how much preparation went in before the trial - did you request a full disclosure from the prosecution? Did you receive a full disclosure? What is your defense? In the long run this delay might help you in filing for chapter 11b defense.
vivek901: Hi, I had my speeding ticket trial today (65 over 50 was the charge). The prosecutor told that she can reduce the speed by 5 KM/HR and give me 60 over 50 and she kept telling that the officer had already reduced it when he gave me the ticket. The officer also told me that if I go for the trial the speed can increase to 75KM.HR.
