jake3d: Dig dig dig dig :D I hope the good doc doesnt forget the ladder to get out.
rajcanada: just 2 months or 2 years???
dr_sbm40: hello people, BL the moderator had asked me how i knew these many things in just 2 years. he has forgot that i have over 35 years of experience (incl. 20 years) abroad and i know quite well about many countries. In fact the information that i had posted comes from taking to my son who takes me everywhere where he goes (along with mis daughter/my grand child) in the weekends and that is how i know things.
dr_sbm40: my son took me to wang's kitchen. the food was lousy in that restaurant and the price was too costly too. we ordered chicken fried rice + some soup. Everything was very bland. The soup was blandishly horrible. Chicken fried rice has no taste and no chicken in it all. the only solace was that the rice was basmathi and it was almost like eating white rice.

Sample letter - Invitation for parents.

mdg: Hello !!!! Can any one help me with some questions regarding inviting parents from India on visitor visa ? 1. We have landed in June'11 from India, Now if we want to invite our parents to Canada, is it possible ? 2. What are the chances of gettting Visa ? 3. Only my spouse has a job, I am at house only. 4.
Fido: Just one Q - this is an invitation letter .... Should it be addressed to the relative or the Visa officer ... Pls refer to the sample given on the previous page .
Garvo Gujarati: Many people advise for notorization, according to me it is unnecessary. When I called my father, I only sent a letter signed by both me and my wife, copy of my income tax return. They high commission asked for copy income tax return of my wife which I sent by fax (to my father and he mailed to them) and they mailed the passport with Visa to my father. Like said by Desi in Ottawa.

Please report site realated suggestion, problems and comments in this category

Garvo Gujarati: Sure, waiting for your more inputs! :)
sunilosharma: Hi GG, I appreciate the time and thinking given by you for my suggestion. In fact, my approach was to make it accessible to "potential new immigrants" from Gujarat, since many of us living in Canada, already have contacts and local presence to find PG's and Rides. The potential new immigrants to Canada do not have any clue (look back to our own experiences) how things work here and how people react.
Garvo Gujarati: Sunilosharma, Thanks for your valued input. The stuff you have suggested is very good. I have some sort of things on this site currently, but I think where you are going. For example - I have Paying guest and sharing accomodation under classified section. That serves the purpose for now - but
sunilosharma: Hi, I must appreciate the initiative taken by Canadian Desi. Is there anyway we can make this site known to more friends around? What about making it known to potential immigrants from Gujarat, who are more concerned and anxious to know things in this part of the world. For example: 1. Identifying and coordinating Paying Guest Accomodations; 2.

Space Centre based in London, Ontario????

ThinkingOne: Dr. Chirinjeev Kathuria is in this business for quite some time now. For his other activities, look at LINK
Chris: This could be a hoax, so I am taking with a grain of salt until confirmed, but a friend of mine from London forwarded me this link about a Canadian company that is arranging for commercial space launches. It already has a team assembled! Incredibly, it is based in London, ONtario? Fact... or fiction?

Buying a Plot of Land for Capital Apreciation In India

puttoo: Land will always appreciate in value faster then the apartments. Infact when DLF were selling land in Gurgaon in late 1990's, they also realized this. That is why then sold land in DLF Phase 1 to 3 but their Phase 4 was converted to high rise apartments.
Fido: Capital gains is 20 % adjusted to the difference in circle rates . Repartration is a gray area for me also although I feel that as long as we have apaid taxes , the money should be repartriable .
pratickm: What are the tax implications when the property is eventually sold for capital gains? Will it be taxed at the full marginal tax rate? Also, what are the options for repatriating the money to Canada?
Fido: Many Thanks to all who responded to my doubts . After one month of intense searching and analyzing I brought 500 sq yards plot in NCR of Delhi (Gr Noida) My analysis led me to the following understanding

Wax Museum, Kolhapur , Maharashtra , India.

Loser: Has anyone been here. I would love to visit it .

Plz make sure that u buy drugs ! only if prescribed by a doctor(Also, ask which company manufactures it, this would help to ensure that u get what is prescribed at the Drug Store) and that also from a reputed drug store. Not many people know about these banned drugs and consume them causing a lot of damage to themselves. We forward Jokes and other junk all the time.... This is far more important.

Googles driverless car gets DMV license in Nevada

Vandematram: LINK Google’s self-driven cars will soon be appearing on Nevada roads after the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles approved on Monday the nation’s first autonomous vehicle licence. The move came after officials rode along on drives on highways, in Carson City neighbourhoods and along the famous Las Vegas Strip, the Nevada DMV said in a statement. Google’s self-driven cars rely on video cameras, radar sensors, lasers and a database of information collected from manually driven cars to help navigate, according to the company. The DMV licensed a Toyota Prius that Google modified with its experimental driver-less technology, developed by Stanford professor and Google Vice President Sebastian Thrun. Google’s self-driving cars have crossed the Golden Gate Bridge and driven along the picturesque Pacific Coast Highway, the company says. Autonomous vehicles are the “car of the future,” Nevada DMV director Bruce Breslow said in a statement.
