Modi going the Obama path

febpreet: Why then the brouhaha over AAP and the kind of scrutiny that it received every hour just after forming the Govt. in Delhi? Double standards?
Gurram: YES ... Economically middle class and low middle class people in India can enjoy the fruits of economic development only after 20 years from now as the rotten govt is gone. It is not for us. We will be old or cease to exist by that time. LINK
DELHI INDIAN: True, It is too early to expect result from any one in such a short time. But the point here which VM raised is different. This government is working exactly the way previous governments were working, may be little better.
Rajagopal: It is astonishing that people are expecting a newly formed government to show results within 90 days of being elected!. VM bhai: Even your Sunny Leoniji took couple of years to get a foothold in Bolly-'wood'.


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.

How to go from airport to my apartment in Mississauga !

Gurram: If you are more concerned about legality, there is nothing illegal if a "friend" comes to airport to pick you up.
Hasni: FH, I am so grateful to you for your time and concern that you always show to solve our issues. Picture is quite clear to me now. Based on the links that you provided earlier. I talked to few private service providers and one of them has shown consent to pick me up for CAD60. He says that he just hold the regular Ontario license and that's all.
Full House: I HAVE WRITTEN THIS BASSACKWARDS..: YOU ARE 100% CORRECT. But, there is always a but, when you make arrangements with a taxi company for a van, before you leave your departure COUNTRY, make a placard with your name and place it in your brief case, foldable if very big, which will say on it " H A S N I " and you hold it slighly over your head to tell who you are AT THE PRE ARRANGED PICK UP POST..
Hasni: FH, thanks a lot for all the detailed info, as ever you have again loaded me with plenty of options to work around with, that's great. But I guess none of them is an Air Port Service, they all sound private. I have read somewhere that private cabs are not allowed to pick passengers from the air port, though they are free to drop offcourse.

GLOBALBUSINESS123: CAN ANYBODY RECOMMEND REASONABLY PRICED, RELIABLE, TRIED & TRUSTED INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDER FOR APARTMENT IN ETOBICOKE.
rajcanada: Febpreet if you use VOIP phone, you will need ATA. Usually companies do not support or cooperate well if you do not buy the ATA from them. Internet can be provided via regular landline phone, which is called DSL. Now, if you want only internet coming to you using the landline and do not want regular landline phone service, it is dry loop and usually companies charge extra for it.
febpreet: Thanks Fido, so you're saying if I go with Acanac, I don't need to buy the ATA as the phone is connected through internet? But how? Don't you need a device to hook up the phone to the internet modem/router? Sorry to be pest, as I have absolutely no idea about it all.

crook wants easy money

san-hugo: No doubt the guy is a crook money monger, trying to use loopholes in law to his advantage. In my view he is angry and showing his anger through a friend lawyer by asking money. He will not go far though, As tourist suggested, you have to be bring more professionalism to your dealings , like signed contracts and laid guidelines on usage of property.

So, I can decide later on base of how much time I am spending at Disneyland.


Vijay Seshadri Pulitzer Prize Winner 2014 for poetry

Vandematram: In the time of sachins & sanias a fresh burst of breath air ! LINK LINK THE LONG MEADOW Near the end of one of the old poems, the son of righteousness, the source of virtue and civility, on whose back the kingdom is carried as on the back of the tortoise the earth is carried, passes into the next world. The wood is dark. The wood is dark, and on the other side of the wood the sea is shallow, warm, endless. In and around it, there is no threat of life — so little is the atmosphere charged with possibility that he might as well be wading through a flooded basement. He wades for what seems like forever, and never stops to rest in the shade of the metal raintrees springing out of the water at fixed intervals. Time, though endless, is also short, so he wades on, until he walks out of the sea and into the mountains, where he burns on the windward slopes and freezes in the valleys. After unendurable struggles, he finally arrives at the celestial realm. The god waits there for him.
