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

febpreet: Why this personal attack, Mr. Moderator? Are you that out of arguments that made you stoop at this level? I am just presenting my opinions here and the opposing views, which you are calling a drama. What
DELHI INDIAN: Please don't call this as an interview. I am not saying this because I support AAP. I have no problem seeing Mr. Modi as PM and I was very much excited to see his response to various crucial issues but was disappointed at the end as those were never asked.
BlueLobster: Maybe you missed the part where I protested Delhite saying "This is reality"? Or maybe you didn't. Either ways, its hilarious that you still can't refrain from the drama (bolded above). Keep going!
febpreet: 1. AAP stands no chance in this election. May be next. I am a realist, but still admire (and a fan of) AAP's courage to say spade a spade in a short period since its inception. Thus, a nightmare to many in mainstream parties. 2.


UPA parting kick

dsd: could not find the link . Article is removed
ramar2005: LINK Our query: Why cannot the new government coming in after May 2014, take over the land by throwing the


Survey says NDA will get 275 seats

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 .
san-hugo: You just called Modi /BJP being a symbol of communalism. Its a sad story for Indian Politics that invariable religion comes to picture whenever voting is done. Having said so , It will be better
dsd: Good News & will be happy if it is some where nearer on 16th May . Voters turnout was heavy in all 4 rounds , it seems that muslims have voted heavily . Sure muslims votes will go against BJP .So even if 1% swing in voters will make big change in seat calculation .
ramar2005: ND TV with its bias has gone terribly wrong in predicting 11 seats out of 40 for the DMK. Everybody knows that DMK now is in its weakest state getting entangled in family feud as to who should control.


Three year report card

febpreet: IGGJACTLY!
ramar2005: Thanks very much to bhootnath, febpreet, elmer fudd, MKBLR, Rajgopal, Delhite and others who have given a patient reading to our genuine grievance. You have all said it far better and clear, but in much fewer words.
elmer fudd: Almost all of so called backward classes were at some period of time in Indian history either the ruling class of India or prosperous(muslims, Jats, Yadavs etc). And there was no targeted discrimination by society as a whole.
bhootnath: ok Rubbish was decent word..total BS So next sixty years now it is OC's turn to get reservation because last 60 years their last generation suffered??? Lets say now you are enjoying good life there..good
tamilkuravan: How so dude?
bhootnath: Rubbish!

What is your story in Canada?

dsd: Excellent Analysis Tk .
tamilkuravan: Good post Happy Woman. I am writing this post just to quell some misconceptions about gaining employment in Canada. Canada is a vast and one of the most highly industrilaized nations in the world. The population of this great nation is only around 34 million and it has a very harsh climate. Canada is one of the largest countries in the world and the GTA area accounts for 1/5th of the total population of Canada.
Varturam: Great, Wishing you all the very best. May you e the inspiration for all the new immigrants irrespective of nationality
happywoman36: Here is my story just happened to be on the other side. 1. Landed in May 2009 in Toronto with family. Husband Electirical engg. children 2 and 7 yrs old. 2. bought first house within 20 days of landing. husband was jobless for 3-4 months and he did co-op and got job in his own field immdly $22 per hour after getting licence.


Recent Disney Cruise experience

BlueLobster: We went during US Thanksgiving so the timing helped a bit. Another trick with cruises is they drop prices from time to time. You ONLY get the difference if you call the agent you booked through. So we booked a few months ahead and then checked every few days to see if a price dropped and if yes, they would reimburse us the difference.
dimple2001: Totally agree on the phone/internet part. No one was on the phone or tablet and with us in the inside room, had no idea of the time of the day. It was fantastic to let go of the day/time senses and just take it easy. Of course, from the shores of Bahamas I had to email a few pictures to my co-workers to just rile them up :)
JRF: This could be the best deal I've ever heard.
BlueLobster: Nice detailed post, Dimple. We did our first cruise last year and it was an amazing experience as well. We went with Carnival departing from Baltimore (saved on flight costs and drove there) and ended up paying approx. 700 per person for a 7 night cruise with 3 stops (one in Florida and two in the Bahamas).


Time taken for getting PR

Full House: You are entering on a Temporary Resident Visa with an LMO from the Citizenship and Immigration Canada. Your employer obtained it once for themselves and you. Halfway through the term, you are applying for a Permanent Resident Visa with an years' experience under your belt. The Company knows that and so does the CIC.
baderish: FH, Thanks for the detailed reply. In case I do need to apply for the Temp work permit extension 3 months prior to expiry (as it seems likely) would I need a new LMO (I have currently applied under LMO). I have checked that my job falls under NOC skill type 0. Thanks, Baderish.
baderish: Murali, I'm in Finance - Insurance to be particular. - Baderish
Full House: - Here are a few tips.: When it comes to calculating times in Immigration related matters, A week has 30 days and an Year has 13 months. Nothing works as calculated or as dates provided. So, add a few months to the times provided, unless you are in a hurry. If you can show a little patience and grin and bear it, you will go a long way. You have been informed correctly as posted by you above.


countdown for receiving child benefit !

Hasni: thanks TK, haha..that is called pound foolish penny wise :)
Hasni: thanks TK, haha..that is called pound foolish penny wise :)
tamilkuravan: Hasni: You need not show Zero income (Though you donot need to provide any proof of it in the first year of filing tax). There will be no change in the benefis that you will get if your income for the previous years was between $ 0 and $ 12000 (or so). And if your income declared / earnt was between
Hasni: Dear Sudesingh, thanks for nice explanation. Now in my case, if I go to Canada and submit my tax returns..will have to show zero income. Thus I will become eligible to get the child care benefit, right. Question is..are there any chances that I might also start getting other benefits as well as mentioned above.
sudesingh: OK..one last try... Since you are outside the country AND you have residential ties with the country, you CANNOT apply for any of following benefits, even if you meet income & other conditions required to receive the benefit: GST, CTB, WITB or Trillium benefit Once you enter the country, you shall qualify TO APPLY for the benefit/s.


Sask/Manitoba

tamilkuravan: Timon, What about his job? With lower living expenses, he is expected to get less in his job + hassle of finding a job, esp. in areas like that. Again, isn't university competetion at an all Canada level? Is it based only on Onatario univ's for Ontarians? So if I relocate to Yellowknife and live on welfare will my kids be free to choose the best of the courses that are offered in those universities?

Also, I know people who own a COFFEE place, (No Names here) who are millionaires, keep purchasing a next one every FOUR years. So, I am unable

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.

wall-E: Maybe because I am in the software industry but I don't agree with this. The companies I have worked for have hired so many immigrants myself being one. In fact we are seriously considering hiring someone from India directly. I think the biggest issue for immigrants is good English communication and fitting into the culture.
