Back in 2000 I was a new immigrant at a bus shelter
one day when a fellow South Asian I was talking to
enquired if I came to this country as a tourist or
refugee. I was taken aback, did I look that rough?
Had my clothing seen better days? I recovered
quickly and confessed I was a landed immigrant who
qualified under the point system. He had no clue
what I was talking about, but by then I was curious
to know his status, which he revealed to me quite
proudly- he was a landed tourist who changed his
status to refugee. He said it as if it was a choice
that was offered to anyone.
In 1990, when my team started a software company, we
estimated that we would need $20 million in
financing to get off the ground. For my second
startup, in 1997, we budgeted for $3 million. If I
were starting a similar enterprise-software company
today, I would probably seek $500,000. Mobile- and
social-app developers often make do by maxing out
their credit cards. That is how much things have
changed. And as computing continues its exponential
march, the cost of developing sophisticated systems
will drop even further.

scrumptious but even more exciting was the
fact that everyone in attendance was there
to have a good time. With the hall filled
with about 500 people, the smiles, the
laughter, the joy and the high spirits lit
up room with a joyful and warm feeling that
was hard to miss and even if your mood was
not quite there when you walked in, it
changed instantly as each one was enveloped
in the fuzzy feeling!

News Clips from Goa
issues dominated Goa in 2012 Posted: 29 Dec 2012 05:21 AM PST
A radical political shift, cheap petrol and the ban
on mining ensured that Goa remained in the limelight
The year’s first big surprise was the manner in
which the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) romped to
power, trouncing the Congress-led coalition
government whose ministers were battling severe
corruption allegations. Even Chief Minister Digmabar
Kamat was found desperately staving off allegations
of corruption and papering over illegalities in the
mining sector. This gave the BJP an opportunity to
return to power after a hiatus of eight years.
Stressing on the importance of Goa acquiring special
status, advocate Radharao Gracias questioned the
seriousness of the BJP-led state government in
carrying forward this demand of the people.
Goa to achieve
100 % sanitation coverage by 2014 Posted: 24 Dec 2012 10:32
aims to achieve 100% sanitation coverage and 100%
open defecation free to become Nirmal Goa by the
year 2014, PWD minister Ramkrishna Dhavalikar said
Briefing the media, Dhavalikar said that to achieve
this the government had declared the year 2013 as
‘Goa State Year of Sanitation’ with a preparatory
phase from October 2012 to December 2012. “We have
already taken up active awareness campaign at the
block level and successfully completed eight blocks
out of 12 blocks and I am personally attending the
block level awareness campaign,”
While welcoming the decision of the Indian
government to ease restrictions on tourist visas
that mandated a two-month gap between consecutive
visits by foreign nationals to India, the tourist
trade in Goa hopes that the Centre will heed Goa’s
request to be allowed to issue Visas on Arrival (VoA).

Starting a New Job
Toronto, Dec. 18,
2012 /CNW/ - Workers who ring in
the new year with a new job may find

interviewed said mastering new processes and
procedures tops their list of concerns when
joining a company. Twenty-three per cent
from each group cited getting to know a new
boss and colleagues as the greatest hurdle.

Author Joel Kotkin says that the notion of
family, as we know it, is no longer a
central tenet of society. People are
choosing not to have children, or to delay
marriage - if they marry at all. Does this
spell the end of family, or is it just a
re-imagining of what we've come to know?
This piece is
the introduction to a new report on post-familialism
from Civil Service College in Singapore,
Chapman University, and Fieldstead and
Company and authored by Joel Kotkin.
For most of human history, the family —
defined by parents, children and extended
kin — has stood as the central unit of
society. In Europe, Asia, Africa and, later,
the Americas and Oceania, people lived, and
frequently worked, as family units.
