Arnab - One man Army

jack_brigh: Arnab is smart journalist. He goes with the mood of the nation. Agreed sometimes he is very loud and irritating. But he had the guts to take on Pakistan and Kashmiri separatist. He invited them and abused and insulted them and nation wanted to listen to it.
Blue_Peafowl: No one is perfect !!! - But at least he cares for Nation. Everyone play loops holes, he has to get his career going ... TOI is going against him means he doing something good for community ... he has
Delhite: Read here how Arnab created a storm in a cup. Waiting to see if he apologies or not. LINK
Delhite: CBSE - Grade 12 result is out. Delhi Govt Schools get 88% whereas Private Schools get 79%. How come Govt Schools are performing better than private schools. Delhi Govt must did this fraud with hands in gloves with CBSE.

India's political landscape

zindabad: +1. Nationalist ideology can only keep India up . Minority appeasement , castism should not be entertained by voters . See the kind of hard work done by BJP leaders . Modi and his ministers are working hard at govt.
Blue_Peafowl: AND BTW: In less than a year, forces kill Burhan Wanis successor too.. Jai Hind Mani Shankar Aiyar criticized for meeting separatists in Srinagar - Hail Kongress It happens only in INDIA
Blue_Peafowl: She pleased the minority .. lot of and i mean lot of illegal bangla minority ( muslim) , she keep them safe... imam threaten gov of India about sharia law and cleanse up of Hindu's and threaten to make
san-hugo: LoL , Bengal is still under hangover of 34 years rule of communists. Didi can do as much. But 2 good things about her one she stopped the bandhs (work strikes) and two she herself is incorruptible.

Blue_Peafowl: It seems next focus of the world will be Asia. Things are heating up ... China acting like a MAD DOG , India has to play very carefully . I am happy that Modi govt is in power... we need Modi for
Blue_Peafowl: wrong section
Garvo Gujarati: Today's news reports suggest US too will get involve with India, or it will involve India, to counter China's OBOR initiative. It means reviving Cotton road as well. Not sure what difference US will make, but for some of the nations, financial support from the US will expedite the process.
Blue_Peafowl: I think it was called Silk Road OBOR or any other trade route is good for any country ... Yes india might lose bit on not joining BUT again if we join OBOR then we lose the power on POK. National sovereignty must be protected without hesitation .

Sonu Nigam wants to sleep !

Garvo Gujarati: True, It's easy to play with people's sentiments when it comes to religion. However low enforcement's are required too when people don't listen.
san-hugo: Supreme court banned loudspeakers from 10 PM to 8 am. Religious institution does not care and people support these institutions. Gundagardi hai bus....
Garvo Gujarati: There must be a "no-noise" time. Anything that is making noise beyond certain decibel should be banned during the periods of say 11.00 PM till 5.00 AM. That would cover fireworks as well. In
febpreet: Not just 'restricted', but an outright ban. The sound shouldn't come outside of their premises. Plain and simple.
Confused_Canadian: As long as people makes religion their friend and logic their enemy this thing will continue. Not just Mosque all religion has to be restricted in using loud speakers. After certain time there should not be sound pollution regardless of religion.

I have few more questions bit in detail..will send a PM in the evening after do some more research on my part. rgds MK
sudesingh: RRSP accounts are on individual names, so you and your spouse will have to open separate accounts. Each individual will have their own RRSP limit. In your case you have a limit of $50K while your spouse has a limit of $25K. Let's consider the situation where the wife is not working and does not have a limit at all.
mkannuri: Not sure if this is off topic, but will post anyways as its still related to RRSP. My situation is, I have never contributed to RRSP being self employed and takes under 50k household income from my corporation.. As our TFSA's got maxed out and before jumping into Un-Registered accounts, I would

Full House: FORM #5713 .. : LINK FORM # 5476... : LINK FORM. # 5645,, : LINK If you are there at Visa Global attending to all of these in person,
vbakshi: Thank you FH. So you are indicating for online application no form needs physical signature outside their validation where required. That begs a question for the form IMM5645 (use of family representative) where say my mother has to authorize my dad to apply on her behalf. Are you suggesting that IRCC will accept her authorization without her signature?
Full House: Please follow this procedure given below to validate your Forms. : Signing" Forms on cic.gc.ca that are submitted online Can't submit online? Skip down to the section on validating forms. In order to submit any application form online to IRCC, you obviously need to 'sign' it. But though it is possible to "sign" many pdfs nowadays, IRCC hasn't quite caught up to that standard yet.

Faced with terminal cancer, mother fulfills lifelong dream of earning PhD

groupbuyebox: Very heart touching accomplishment: Faced with terminal cancer, mother fulfills lifelong dream of earning PhD LINK Precilla Veigas was more than halfway through her PhD in medical science when she got the grim diagnosis in September 2015. A rare form of abdominal cancer had spread through her body. Doctors told her she had six months to live, a year if she was lucky. Veigas had a teenaged daughter, a husband and a sprawling family in India. She was also engrossed in pursuing the academic goal shed been dreaming of for most of her life. Colleagues at the University of Toronto raised the possibility of medical leave. I said no, Im not going to do that, I want to finish it, recalls Veigas, 44, who says despite the shock, staying focused on her research made her feel clearer and stronger to deal with the medical nightmare that was about to unfold. Difficulties come in life, you cant turn away from them.

Full House: Canada has long been, and continues to be, a land of immigration. Since Confederation in 1867, more than 17 million immigrants have come to Canada. EDIT. : LINK NOW..Intolerance Threatens India's Universities. India's leading institutions face drastic cuts in resources and shrinking space for intellectual freedom. CREDITS are provided at the bottom of the article. (Copy and Paste) Higher education in India is going through a critical phase. The country has witnessed tremendous growth in the sector since independence, and now has 750 universities, 35,000 colleges and 30 million of students. But none of its best institutions have managed to secure a place in the list of the world's top 200 universities. This is particularly worrying as some of India's leading institutions are now facing drastic cuts in employment and resources.
