HOW MANY SUITCASES DOES ONE NEED TO CARRY SUCH AN AMOUNT...??

ramar2005: Even when the people have given Modi a comfortable majority, that he is dragging his feet comes as a big disappointment. After the USA, now that the OZ saga is over, do not know what will be Modi's next destination.
DELHI INDIAN: How many suitcase? I would say none. India is never going to get this money back. With new goverment in power with such a hugh mandate and they were shouting before election of corrpution from previous
Full House: WHERE THE CURRENT SITUATION IS ACCORDING TO EXPERTS...: After much hyped hue and cry about retrieving the stacked up back money, Special Investigation team (SIT) found that 300 of the 618 accounts in the HSBC have no cash, and most of the names were repeated, as reported by Rediff.
Full House: - If this the same article as mentioned under, it looks like a cheap BUTCHER SHOP job by a quack with his medical henchmen, who really supply DRUGS, then I am feeling very sorry for the families and thanks


Couple OCI questions please

vagg: Thank you dimple2001 for your response. That helps for sure.
dimple2001: 2. No, unless you live in India and is deemed a resident there.
vagg: I am thinking of applying for OCI but have couple questions: 1. Is now a good time to apply for OCI considering that PM Modi announced that OCI and PIO cards would be merged to introduce some new card? Should I wait to see what comes out of it. 2.


The price of petrol

ramar2005: For all their wrong doings the UPA met their fate in the 2014 elections and the BJP took over as if they are going to be the saviors. If the common man thinks that his travails are over it is only a pipe dream.
ramar2005: The other day MMS, giving his comments about subsidy used phrases like "we have to take hard decisions", "bite the bullet". It is as if the common man is giving the government and the rich tough time, posing problems, as if they have lined up and are shooting at them etc.
ramar2005: On the contrary, when the USD was hitting 52 Rs., last month, the hiked petrol price was brought down first by Rs.2.20 initially and then by Re.0.80 per litre. May be the UP elections are round the corner.
ashedfc: India's industrial production has slumped in Oct. LINK As Rupee hits an all time low.


Death sentence to Indian Fishermen

ramar2005: Very true. After the war was over all people, both Tamils and Sinhalese in Sri Lanka want to lead a peaceful life. They have lost nearly 40 years to the war. As Sri Lankan economy picks up from shambles,
rajcanada: SS raised a point in another show that boat owners (affiliated to major TN political parties) who are pushing Indian fisherman into Lankan waters because there are no fishes left on Indian side where these mechanized boats can operate.
ramar2005: TK Thanks for following on this news. We do not know the merits or demerits of this particular case. The fishermen might have been deliberately framed by the Sri Lankan Navy themselves. But generally,
tamilkuravan: I heard that with Modi's intervention, they have decided to let the fishermen spend their jail time in India. Murali The Krishna !!

TN Visa for Canadians

JRF: Thanks Dimple & Fido. I should be visiting the border to get the visa cancelled formally.
Fido: The same happened to my friend. When he was visiting US recently they cancelled his & his family's TN status when he told them that he is working in Toronto.
dimple2001: In reality, none of the options you have mentioned matters. However, if you do enter the US for shopping, you could (or rather should since their computer will pick up your status as TN) mention that you received a TN that you never used and never started employment with the TN sponsor. They might send you to secondary inspection to cancel your TN and remove your I-94.
JRF: Hi All, About 8 months back, last fall I received a job offer from a Fortune 500 company, Got TN for myself and my family but I neither I moved to USA nor joined the company. However the TN (I-94) is still affixed to my passport and has an expiry date until Mid 2015. Never visited US after securing the TN1. Should I return the TN I-94 immediately or just before it expires or as I enter US for shopping.


Security job courses

tamilkuravan: Hasni: One more (legal) money that Canada provides is the 'Second Career program'. You have to work on payroll for 9 months or more and then get laid off. Once you do, Govt. of Canada will pay $ 28,000 on a college course, weekly income for you, parking charges, gas charges to do the course. It can be upto 3 year course in a community college or elsewhere. I did that course.
Full House: - This from a publication. so you also have it. CURRENTLY MIWAY Cash fares are $3.25 per ticket. Have EXACT Cash. Transportation: Pearson Airport by Transit Transit to Pearson Airport There are several ways you can get to Pearson Airport: Taxi (ranges from $61 from Scarborough, $46 from
Hasni: Dear SS, I landed in Nov 2013 and had to get the trolly for two dollars, then again in aug' 2014 I needed a big cart and had to pay. Thanks for sharing link, how much would be the fare for this route !


Looking for a desktop, Dell or hp !

tamilkuravan: Hasni: Just buy a new computer. Donot get refurbished ones. Laptop is one top investment that you need for success in Canada. Dec. 26th is boxing day where you will get 30% or more discount, if you are prepared to go to a store early (may be best buy, Future shop, Tiger or Walmart). With internet and googling, you can get to know many free services that is available for immigrants like you in Canada. Murali The Krishna
Gurram: Some times, you will find good ones for very cheap in Flea Markets ... particularly if you know how to fix small things or do some upgrades.
Hasni: Thanks FH, how about getting refurbished desktops from Walmart , best buy or future shop ! Secondly, should I choose anyone between Dell and hp ! I need a quad core, 4 GB ram and around 250 GB hard drive. Hat should be the price range for this configuration btw. Thanks
Full House: - As you know, some companies do merge, but their products are not the same. Also, if you are looking for used materials, then they are always different to each other. Currently CORE 2 DUO is a standard for Stand alone, Tower, Mini, or a Desk Top. But the Memory is what makes it work better. Also the Operating Systems with updates will make it run even better.


Customs clearance at seattle airport - Returning to Vancouver

Gurram: I am sure you got best advise from Full House. In case if you are bringing ..... DECLARE and see if you can manage. In a worst case they throw them in a garbage.
Full House: CBSA are very strict currently. You don;t need a dog to sniff that item. We get tons of dried fish here in Canada. There are many kinds available. So, drop the idea. Secondly it is a prohibited item and you are clearing the item through US Customs first. They will crucify you. Your Medicines Ayurvedic or Allopathic can be brought in with a prescription, as long it is not Marijuana or Opiates.
dimple2001: Depends on the day and the inspector. If you declare dry fish as food in the customs form, you also have the option of stating nothing will stay in the US as you are taking an outbound flight. The decision now lay in the hands of the customs. If you don't declare and get sniffed out, it's an altogether different story. Third option - nothing might happen.

Life.

happywoman36: This is beautiful..,, 🚂🚋🚋🚋🚋 Life is like a journey on a train... with its stations... with changes of routes... and with accidents ! 🚂🚋🚋🚋🚋 We board this train when we are born and our parents are the ones who get our ticket. 🚂🚋🚋🚋🚋 We believe they will always travel on this train with us. 🚂🚋🚋🚋🚋 However, at some station our parents will get off the train, leaving us alone on this journey. 🚂🚋🚋🚋🚋 As time goes by, other passengers will board the train, many of whom will be significant - our siblings, friends, children, and even the love of our life. 🚂🚋🚋🚋🚋 Many

Emotional reading.

happywoman36: A 'must read' even if you've read it earlier..... One day a teacher asked her students to list the names of the other students in the room on two sheets of paper, leaving a space between each name. Then she told them to think of the nicest thing they could say about each of their classmates and write it down. It took the remainder of the class period to finish their assignment, and as the students left the room, each one handed in the papers. That Saturday, the teacher wrote down the name of each student on a separate sheet of paper, and listed what everyone else had said about that individual. On Monday she gave each student his or her list. Before long, the entire class was smiling. 'Really?' she heard whispered. 'I never knew that I meant anything to anyone!' and, 'I didn't know others liked me so much,' were most of the comments. No one ever mentioned those papers in class again.

Confusion - is it really worth immigrating to Canada?

Full House: To O.P. Do come to Canada. We surely like to taste the type of food the Mangalorean Cooks put out in Mumbai. I know some are from the Konkan coast. They are good too. So, do try and get in and I am sure your wife will make it in and so get her in as the sponsor.
prr18: u hv described the present status of Hyderabad perfectly. Traffic is the big problem due to Metro rail work in progress and party due to driving habits of the motorists. U came to Hyderabad on short trip or staying back in Hyderabad?
happywoman36: duplicate so deleted.
happywoman36: If I were you, I would forget everything about India n start afresh in canada or Australia. One of greatest advantage in ur situation is that u r not frm poor family nor u want money which is prime issue in most cases. Thy come to canada or any western countries for better lifestyle or to mke wealth. Ur situation is just like ours whn we were in Sharjah.

Parent sponsorship letter received after 3 yrs. - timeline

Full House: - The first question that pops into my mind is...: Why is your Brother in New Zealand. The next one is.. Did you sponsor him too, if so under what category. Was he below the age of 18 then? You can sponsor your Parents, but not your Brother or your Sister, if they are over the age of 18.
prince77: Just an update on my case.so...since so since my dad got an email in Jan of 2014 that the file has been transferred to Delhi we heard nothing...so I sent an email out 2014 enquiring we recv a std reply stating your case is in the Q...however in 5 days
prince77: I applied for for parents sponsorship May2010 got letter confirming my eligibility December 2013 Parents got a letter Janauary 2014 stating file transefered to Delhi.from then on we got nothing. I am starting to worry now.:-( Prince77
Full House: - All of this is slow process. Thank you for waiting this long for a response from me. Generally you contact the people who wrote to you. Their location is on top of the letter received. The Name of the Officer will also be there. Usually they will provide you with a file number to refer back to/with.
