I have been reading about the plight of the East Indians and the way they have not been given a fair deal by the Maharashtra government over the years. Their lands have been acquired without adequate compensation being given e.g. Santa Cruz airport land, and they do not get any recognition by the government authorities. After following the reports on the various actions being taken by the members of the community, with negligible results, it is apparent to me that this sorry state of affairs ...Read Full Post »
Just wonder how many people (East Indians) know about open source software. These are programs which are not only free but whose source code is also open.
Instead of using pirated copies of proprietory software (e.g. MS Office, MS SQL Server / Oracle, MS Project, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Reader, WinZip, etc.), you can use open source programs (e.g. OpenOffice.org or LibreOffice.org, MySQL, GanttProject, GIMP, Foxit Reader, 7-Zip, Audacity, Stellarium, etc.). These programs are...Read Full Post »

The amount of wealth we have amassed for ourselves, the number of family members in Canada/Australia/USA/Dubai, the amount of gold in our lockers, the square feet of property we own, the Bose system and Sony TV that sits on or shelves?
The hospitals that we have built for the community, the clubs/centres set up to help our youth, the number of us...Read Full Post »
Do East Indians have the information about quality (nationally & internationally recognized) educational institutions where they can study? Some of them do brilliantly in SSC (score distinction) and then faze out. This blog is to put together the names, addresses, and entrance criteria of good educational institutions where East Indians can study and excel after successfully passing SSC/HSC. It will act as a foundation to living a better life.
Most East Indians are wanting to have a resource to get Ei brides and EI Grooms. However, while most want to search and find, they do not want to be willing to put their name to say "I am looking for a groom" or "I am looking for a bride". Once we overcome this we will be able to find GREAT PARTNERS within our community itself.
In this site itself a person can write that he/sheis looking for a partner and those interested can check their profile. it is that simp...Read Full Post »
As an east indian , i have to painfully accept the fact that we east-indians as a community are lagging behind Goans and Mangloreans in terms of education, financial status, and general upward mobilty ?
