14 Pictures - To show Ramayana might HAVE actually happened !

tamilkuravan: Thanks Adam. I think no one will be interested. They are more interested in the free flow of fed money in USA, untimely rainfall in Maharashtra, DK Ravi, inflation, Modi-nomics etc.. Murali
adamthorat: TK show this to all your Tamil firends in both Sri Lanka & Nadu :) I think someone needs to swim from India to Sri Lanka , just as they use to swim the English channel from England to France.
adamthorat: LINK


Online petition for CBI probe on mysterious death of IAS officer D K Ravi

ramar2005: Will remember your good advice. At least the remaining decade of my life is not be spent losing sleep over all these wrongdoings done for the sake of power and wealth. May be these evil doers are going to liver forever.
san-hugo: Powerful men protect powerful men. - Movie - Perfect Stranger, Hally Barie, Bruce Willis. Mr Ravi and his family are victims of the rotten system full of uneducated but powerful policemen and investigators and politicians.
adamthorat: Yup its a whole chain..from top to bottom . There is a fixed percenatge at each and every level..right from the low level peon in the Gov. office & all the way to the top. The netas & babus are running the show.
ramar2005: We are talking about the role of businessmen and politicians. What about the role of bureaucrats and other officers who are bereft of income because of Ravi playing 'spoilsport'. In the case of IAS


Aadhaar Card - Received in 12 days for the entire family - Impressive !

tamilkuravan: Feb, I agree and disagree with you. As far as I am aware, Aadhaar is the ultimate card. It is ultimate since it contains your finger prints and it is biometric. So it is unique and only one person can
febpreet: Wait until Govt. finds a new way to make money for the middlemen/contractors few years down the line. It will then be called 'Shaandaar Card'. All in one. Let's wait for the Govt. to change in 5-10
adamthorat: Yup as long as you can show any POI & POA listed on their list , you should get it. Why didn't you show your OCI card as photo id , instead of Canadian PP ?
tamilkuravan: Aadhaar card is a card for identity (foremost). So it is available for anyone present and living in India. This includes foreigners and illegal immigrants too. However Voter card / Ration card is available only to Indian citizens. I am a Canadian citizen and I showed my cdn.


Cab Revolution

MKBLR: I use OLA for travel for work. Since I am not that tech savvy, I just call the call centre from my mobile. Within 10-15 min the cab is here. Sometimes even less than that. Works great. I get the the charge via SMS and email.
tamilkuravan: Very interesting. I visit chennai once in 3 weeks but have not experience this as I have my brother come and pick me at the airport and then drop me off in the railway stn.. I saw some new OLA cab advt.
ramar2005: What the people in metropolis like Chennai are experiencing now, is it a boon or something fishy we are not able to decide. These days there is this cab co. which uses satellite and mobile phone and apps.

moving back to India - shipping

adamthorat: Yup ..things are much cheaper in Canada & the quality is much better too. Due to corruption in India & the bribes you have to pay..there is also lot of red tape & bureaucracy..so lot of agents, touts & middlemen in India , who don't really do anything ..but they add their markup at every stage of
bm14: Hi Daikin, Thanks for offering your help. I have connected with some companies here. One of them asked me to pack my own goods. So perhaps insurance is something they prefer not to deal with. The other mentioned that they will only be able to give the exact costing once we upload goods. As of now they can give a rough estimate, which could change once they pack the goods and see actually how many boxes we have.
bm14: - dhaikin- yes I too have heard that things are rather smooth under the new government. I have actually not come across many people who are unhappy with their decision of moving back. Things have changed a lot, salaries are very good, excellent business prospects, many europeans and american have migrated there and have settled down.


India vs Canada- Real Estate Investment

tamilkuravan: Adam, It is a 3 level house. House owner lives in the lower floor where his second car park is our 3 rd. bedroom above. We live in the middle floor. There is another tenant in the top floor. The whole house is worth atleast 3 crores. He is a doctor in the nearby hospital. In the area I live, all live in the Gulf and hence a lot of apartment is just locked.
adamthorat: Knight Frank is probably the company ..he is renting it out to.
adamthorat: Why doesn't this fool just sell the house for 1 crore ? ..and keeps the money in Fixed Deposit..he will almost get 10 % interest on it , so about 10 Lacs per yr ..as opposed to the paltry 1.2 Lacs from you..is he himself living in the lower portion..if so it makes sense :) Plus he has lot of other over heads & headache like property taxes, maintenance etc.
adamthorat: What does he do to pay that kind of rent ? Is it No. 1 business or No. 2 business , he is doing ? Surely he is NOT a salaried guy to pay that kind of rent. Why not buy a flat in Vile Parle ( East ) for a reasonable amount & then go to Vile Parle ( West )..where Juhu is located for a walk everyday :) ..if he wants, instead of paying that kind of rent.


Is Canada moving towards another recession or what?

febpreet: House prices are going over the roof. Just saw a house listed in my neighborhood for 1 mils. A month ago, in the same neighborhood you could've bought for 700k. There are no bells and whistles. Bad news is the Townhome prices haven't increased a single dime. Mind it. It's just in Surrey, which is a distant suburb.
irock: people comparing any housing market with the US is simply wrong....its just the recent example so the bears always try to play that card but they never understand the real play. I could dig up 5-6 year old post & articles by same people telling same things over & over again.....All they do is give bears
JRF: Spring is just in but the bloody bidding war is already through the roof already. GTA real estate has challenged all the odds.
febpreet: Very good and relevant article with the steps to uplift the country in these trying times: LINK On a side note, FutureShop's demise was forthcoming. I strongly believe, Best Buy would even close some more stores in the next two years.


How do AAP supporters feel?

febpreet: Gupta ji AAP to rehan do...
MGupta: AAptards is a normal word used for AApians. it started by Dr Subramanian Swamy (Fmr. Union Cabinet Minister ) LINK type AAptards in serach section. no doubt many AAptards are criminals/anarchists/naxalites/desh-drohi etc etc :). these traitors want our Kashmir to handover to Pakistan
MKBLR: I will give 2-3 years before AAP vanishes by itself. There will be splits and revolts against AK. Chances of Delhites getting what was promised to them would be less. AK is busy fighting the revolts, where does he has time to govern.
Surti: Thanks very much for remaining AAPTards and providing fun - on the delhi streets and here on this board!
san-hugo: LoL , Modi bhakt's got some thing to chew on and they latched on to it. NM first, as always. It is natural process to find solace in such things after the trauma you guys went through. Let me remind you again , it was and it is 67 to 3. ;-)) Agree with Delhite, for dilliwalas, Governance will be key criteria, rest will be forgotten...


Job market for Mobile Testing and Automation Testing in Canada

tamilkuravan: Roland: It is said that Hiring decisions are made in January. However the cursed Canadian winter is still April and so I would suggest April - may to come to Canada. Often hiring processes will end in October end (but not necessarility for techincal jobs such as yours). Murali
northyork_desi: Other sites are Workopolis, monster and eluta. Send me a private message after you have landed if you don't get much traction with your job search. I will guide you in the right direction.
roland_poly: My total and relevant experience is 9 years, but you are right, having no Canadian work experience could be a challenge initially. Yes Murali I am moving as an immigrant and planning to be there by July 2015. Are job openings in Canada throughout the year (with the exception of December being a holiday season) ? I have heard that February to June is the peak time for job seekers but I am not sure how genuine that information is.

Psychometric test books...

Jaimataji: Any one have any idea about books for psychomrtric test for pilots available in GTA? Or any tutor available who can prepare you for the same?


It is not about where to settle, but how to settle

Full House: It is not where to settle, but how to settle. 1) Survey the rental market and fix a budget that will suit your pockets. 2) Get your qualifications accepted in the province that you want to settle down and work. 3) Try and locate your employers or even part time employers who will provide you with a job as a stop gap. 4) Find a suitable place, preferably close to to work. That will enable you to be with your family a little longer after the work hours. 5) Once you obtain a good permanent job, sort out the transportation needs. 6) Most of the schools in Ontario are pretty good, and if need be, you can always shift after your first lease gets over. Until such time you provide all the help to your child to stay on top of the class. 7) Always prepare your family for any emergencies and keep all of the lines of communications open between you and your spouse. Good Luck. FH. 12 March 2015. EDIT: There were times when we had no portable phones to communicate.

What is the maximum undeclared amount of cash one can carry?

tamilkuravan: Hasni : This was what I was talking about (sorry to have said Books but it is not for buying school books but for low wage earners). Please see the eligibility and make sure that you make yourself eligible to avail this benefit. What is the
adamthorat: The Big 5 , they are all the same. Pretty much the same fees & service..TD, RBC, CIBC, BMO, Scotia. PC Financial & Tangerine ( Formerly ING DIRECT ) are a bit different ..slightly higher interest, but even that's gone downhill thesedays..but they
Hasni: Questions jumping in my mind....I alreday have account in TD, but want to have a second one also. Someone suggested RBC is good but there is no RBC brach closer to my house. However thre is one CIBC branch near,...is this equally good or I should go for RBC.
sudesingh: I too would be interested in the details of this one. ..now heading over to my MP's office for some free Tim Bits :)
Hasni: Dear TK, thanks a lot for sharing all this. i will look for my local MP also. This book buying is new to me, never heard about it...see if you can elaborate. Like FH and lot others, you have also been very supportive, thanks TK


Suggest some TV serials

Delhite: Hi Febpreet - here below are the links. Buy me a coffee when I will come to Vancouver :-). LINK LINK You will find links to other episodes on the same page.
san-hugo: Thanks guys for the recommendations in this thread, Last night finished marathon run of 'Homeland' season 1 , it was worth it. Constant night watchmanship due to cricket has disrupted my sleep cycle and watching homeland whole night was much better than watching India lose.
febpreet: Hi, Where can I watch Hindi '24' in a good DVD/Bluray quality? I've had a hard time finding it anywhere online. If it's not available, then I think Bollywood did an immensely great job shielding it from the piracy. I am willing to pay if it's even paid.
