dhaikin: AK & his team must be charged for murder,
dhaval: Now AK is playing martyr, finding that guilt of the noose is getting round his throat. After instigating the farmer in taking the extreme step, he is now trying to divert attention. At the moment, let him not worry about farmers.
dhaval: There is a difference, farmers committing sucide due to hardship face by them and in the murder of a farmer, who was not so sufferer to make a live show of farmer's sucide. Kejriwal for his politics can

Subsidies in India

ramar2005: In India of the last 25 years, the unwritten policy has been rob the have nots in the form of taxes and pay the rich. But the robbers need not wear any 'hood' because they are already called government.
Full House: - Currently, you are paying $1.25 Canadian for a liter of Petrol a lot lesser for Diesel. There are taxes built into it. We are paying just under a dollar today. There are taxes built into it. Now they
tamilkuravan: I have heard that the Tatkal scheme is a form of revenue generating teachnique. Also is the increased cost of booking in certain express trains. Many IT people / office people book via the internet whereas
tamilkuravan: True. Subsidies for the unneedy are a curse for India. I earn very well yet I get my gas subsidized. There is a form for me to fill to cancel my subsidy. I am lazy to do it. There are rich people who buy from ration.


India’s preference for sons has created a nation of tiny people

ramar2005: During the past 2 decades, the girl children are doing fantastic whether it is in education or sports. However, compared to the tall and heavy build, the average 5'6" height and 60 kgs weight of Indians may be advantageous as far as health and long life is concerned.
MKBLR: LINK Not sure if this study/research is right or not. But interesting read.


Congratulations Modi, for fast tracking this in India!

ramar2005: Thanks for sharing the information. A few years back, award winning journalist and Mr.P. Sainath had extensively written in The Hindu how cotton growers in Vidharbha region of Maharashtra were cheated by this MNC and many were forced to commit suicide.
elmer fudd: BJP- The Plan B of the Globalists? While I admire Modi's dynamism, he is still a corporate shill. Considering all others are corporate shills as well, he is a better shill than the other shills. Otherwise,

Completed 10 years in Canada

Gurram: It is really a great achievement .. particularly at an age where all their academic work is required to be done through browsing, typing, printing and texting and kids normally question why we need to learn writing techs when we know how to type and we rarely write.
Tourist: Thank you to all. Sorry to reply later as BC time is different. @Fido. If I start on all the parental guidance and the key points which played part in daughters education, I will have to write a complete book. All has not been rosy there are ups and downs and that is what makes life so interesting.
mmab50: I like the comments made by Fido. Thanks
mmab50: I like the comments made by Fido. Thanks
dhaikin: 30000$ in 2001 & the amount of dedication, hard work you did in Canada. The same effort in India would have put you a lot ahead of where you are now
JRF: Congratulations. Biggest achievements are your assistance to help your daughters launch their careers and have lived satisfying life and more than all you got all the memories built up. BTW, 30K in 2001 is really something big then. It would have added a great help in buying the first property, establish mobility, education and more than all the backup it gave.


Suggest some TV serials

Full House: - I liked all of the songs Shailendra wrote right from the earlier times and most of them are with simple lyrics and catchy melodies. Remember Raj Kapoor and Shankar Jai Kisan in the late 40's. You can always feel the pathos in a poetry when expressed in a musical form.I am always taken by it and hence my expression 'Plucking at your heart strings'.
febpreet: FH, I was with you until it occured to me that the show's creator is Ekta Kapoor. Man, right there! Right there, you lost me. :)
Full House:
febpreet: Thanks. I will check. Coffee is due, for sure :).
febpreet: Finished 'Spartacus'. At last. What a great show that was. One of the best, I have ever seen. Next in line: Prison Break and 24 (Hindi).
JRF: Prison Break, completed successfully all 4 seasons across three weeks. Real good show, no nudity or adult themes. Really an effort. Some real good characters have been portrayed. Slowly losing interest on "Trailer Park Boys..." as it looks more like the 'Sienfeld' kind of sitcom. Need to reboot the "House of Cards", less life events in the show deflects me.


Harmony Universal Remote - Question

sudesingh: I've been using the Harmony One for almost 2+ years and it's excellent. Got it from Costco when they were clearing it out for around $130. It has a small touch screen + buttons I previously had the Harmony 800, the volume button on that one gave up. That's a common problem on that model. I've heard that if I call Logitech, they'll give me a 50% discount code if I provide them with the serial number.
Fido: C'mon .. Wives always have a remote called 'husband' to get things done :) Good Weekend !! (On a light extension .. aren't husbands universal remote controls for wives ? ) Sorry back to your serious q .. I hope others can answer it ...
febpreet: Hi Guys, Just wanted to know if any of you are using Harmony universal remote to control your entertainment centre. I am looking to consolidate all my remotes into one, and zeroed it on the Harmony 650. I am already using one universal remote provided with by the cable provider. But, I want to have more control and sophistication. Any reviews? I am aware of the setup process and on the outset it appears to be time consuming.


New telemarketing scam involving CIC

sudesingh: Well, I answer the call this way: Hi, Joe's Pizza, can I have your home phone number starting with the area code. Telemarketer: Well, I want to speak to Mr or Mrs so-and-so Me: No, No, this is Joe's pizza, I can take your pizza order. ...and I hear a click...the caller just dropped the line. - So
JRF: Generally I do not take the telemarketers for a ride as they are after all doing their within the boundary of law but this guy and his company is clearly a scammer so I had no guilt in playing him. It was tough to drag longer playing both the role of victim and as not one. Anyhow some due diligence requires to isolate the genuine one.
Fido: Scamming the scamster ...lol !! Here's what I do to put a quick end when I suspect a scamster on the other side .... 'Saab to ghar mein nahin hain ..main unka naukar bol raha hoon ... Koi message hai ? ' ( translated to English of course )
chandresh: Besides doing some "Bheja fry" things when I am in a mood, I have done some interesting thing to these real telemarketers calls........... I ask them how they know this person? Then I tell them they have to tell me, even if they say it is from a list they were provided, I tell them I do not believe it.

happywoman36: I m using Google search on my Samsung S 3. Most of the time I get flood limit n post aftr 45 seconds etc. I don't even see duplicate and triplicate post unless I go on my laptop.

Americans in Canada racing to give up passports

Fido: Hi I was surprised to read this news article signifying a reverse trend of sorts... Interesting :) LINK In every U.S. election, there are always threats by Americans that they’ll flee to Canada if the candidate they hate wins. Those threats rarely come to anything. But thanks to a 2014 intergovernmental agreement committing Canada to provide the banking information of Americans living here to the IRS, there appears to be mad rush by some Americans to renounce their U.S. citizenship, and stay here - forever. According to Global News, almost four times as many U.S. citizens as normal dumped their citizenship in March. The reason is an obscure regulation that forces Americans to fill out a Foreign Bank Account Report if they have an account abroad that totals over $10,000 in a year, according to the Wall Street Journal.


2G, Coal and CSK

ramar2005: On the lines of auctioning of the first two and raking in good money for the exchequer, the BJP government must consider taking over the CSK team by paying Rs. 5 LACS to the owners and just another 25,000 to the BCCI. For this is the price the owners have sold the CSK to the shareholders of India Cements, with whom Mr. N. Srinivasan has 0.14% connection only (going by his shares) and from then on will not interfere in the functioning of CSK. As per the discussions on news channels, the CSK brand image and its performances during the past several years will fetch not less than 500 crores, which amount will mean an amount of 50 crores have to be paid to the BCCI. In effect, the BCCI would be losing not less than 49.75 crores because of the transfer. If the CSK is taken over by Modi by paying 5 lacs to the owners and in the name of the PM's Releif Fund, auctioned and the proceeds given to the fund it will do a world of good to the people in times of calamities.


Additional child benefits

tamilkuravan: It is said in the Star that many families are missing on important funding from federal govt. for children under the age of 18. People like Hasni who are new to the country or immigrants earning family income less than $ 60,000 per year (and who have children below 18) are the ones who will be mostly benefitted by this. Pass it on. Murali
