Words of wisdom:
"Remember your weekly mix of activity will vary, depending on how soon you need to be employed, how much time you have to spend on your campaign each week, the economy, the relative difficulty of job finding in your targeted field, and the relative effectiveness of each job search method with regards to your job objective. Good Luck!!!" [source: JobSearch-in-Canada.com]

India as-is from a Canadian Perspective

Note: India is a land of rich history, popular culture, as well a land of paradoxes. In this context, Canada needing India more than India needing Canada makes news, and read below the article by Haroon Siddiqui.

But, it is too early, in terms of the trend to say if this, new trend of shifting centre of gravity is a premenant shift or a temporary move. If it is a permenant move, the only pray and hope is it should'nt be akin to reengineering the concept of love-marriage in India whose pride lies, in arranged-marriages.

Whatever is true of India is also not true, By Haroon Siddiqui, Toronto Star
"Arriving in Canada in 1967, I was swept up by the Centennial, especially Expo, but was soon distressed to discover that there was no yogurt, only something called sour cream, a blob that bloated your tummy. There were few fresh green vegetables and no mangoes. No basmati rice. No coriander, cloves or cardamom. Nor saffron, which few had heard of and said it could be procured, perhaps, around Easter for the seasonal bread.
Informed of this state of affairs, mom in India said: “In that case, son, you had better come back home.”
I am glad I stayed."
At the time, Canadians thought of India as the land of starving people and emaciated holy cows. Now the two countries can't get enough of each other, Canada needing India more than India needing Canada. Which is why the Star is exploring India in every section of the paper today. continue reading
