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

san-hugo: Best will be go to Canadian embassy and enquire. Take along the birth certificate, and fill in the application for citizenship certificate. LINK
Gurram: They need to make a decision basing on their immediate and long term plans. Since the baby is born in India ... she is citizen of India by birth. If they are going to stay in India for a long period, they may not have to rush to do any thing now. If you take a Canadian citizenship for her now ...
tamilkuravan: Peacock 1: Her original citizenship (or birth citizenship) is Indian Her current citizenship is Canadian. Child can get a Cdn citizenship, if you wish as one parent is Canadian. Visit cic.gc.ca or the Indian CIC webiste. All the best ! Murali
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.


Real Estate purchase "Vacant Possession" Clause

san-hugo: Apart from legalities , it also depends who the tenants are. a family with kids ? desi? a pot smoking couple ? students ? some club bouncers ? The best bet in such matters is to 'settle' it and best way to settle is feed money. Ask your seller to settle them out instead of throwing them out.
happywoman36: Don't take possession of the house. If u take n evict them by throwing out tenant stuff... $25000 fine to landlord + court hearing in front of judge+ lawyers fees $500 per hearing + mental torture + court visit so loss of job.
tamilkuravan: Ask your RE lawyer. Donot ask CD's would be the advice that I would tell you. Murali
mick37: Raj we did the first pre closing inspection and that's when we found tenants are still there. We have another pre closing inspection day before closing however we sense that seller might not be able to take them out. Now the next part to this question is if tenant is out and seller has used whatever means to get them out before closing.


Landing in october....require help with furnished accommodation for 15 days

Fido: I have visited this place and found it to be good. Port Credit is a very nice upscale area. There's a No Frills just next door . Mississauga Transit is with in walking distance and you can do a to & fro to Square One in one fare.... The OP is coming for 2 weeks ... Might be hard for him to try something uncertain in the price he s looking for.
tamilkuravan: @ Fido, Rates are a bit high and it is outside Mississauga down town. However looks like a safe and professional place. The OP must know that he must steer clear of all Desi's wishing to rent him/her a room in their home or a basement which is shared by other people. As the OP is from the Gulf, I am sure that he/she can afford Ports hotel. All thebest. Murali
Fido: Try this ... You should not go wrong . LINK In a single fare , you should be able to visit Square One , do some quick shopping and be back . They rent by the week / month.


Starting Own Business in Toronto

tamilkuravan: OP, If you are not saving anything from your normal 9-5 job, it may well mean that you will not be able to handle any businees in Canada. Business is Canada is cut throat and needs an out of the box thinking. Better explore other avenues. Murali
Gurram: What suggestions/inputs you need? First you need to have some clarity. Are u going to export some products ... if so what products and to where? If you are going to import things to Canada ... then what things and from where?. What is the strategic advantage you have in this business so that you can expect some success? Do lot of home work ...
aditya2007: Dear All, Need your expert inputs on this idea; I am in Toronto from past 5 years with my family and working 9 - 5 like others. Since I am not able to save anything, I am thinking of starting some small business like 'Export & Import' Any suggestion, guidance, inputs are most welcomed! Thanks A


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. In one they delivered a imitation Iphone cellphone broken and they told me to send it back to them. They gave me both refund for the cellphone as well as for the courier to send it back. It
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.

Inheritance of Property and selling

shriya: Hi CD's My parents in India own a residential property there which they want to give me as Inheritance. I am a citizen here and live in Ontario. After I inherit, I plan to sell this and transfer money to Canada. My relatives both in India and Canada are interested in buying this property. I would like to know what could be the tax implications here when money is wired to Canada and in India if any. I read somewhere inheritance money is not taxed here. But even if so what legal documentation would I require to prove that this money which I get is in fact inherited. Would I need the help of a lawyer here to do this? Thank you
