|Sanatan Mandir Brighton Temple Needs Your Support - Urgent|
|Contributed by Manav Garg 303-482-2486 on 2014-01-16|
|Recently, the furnace of the Brighton temple broke down, due to which the heater of the temple is not working. A local mechanic offered his free repair service and Pandit ji paid a few hundred dollars for buying some parts, but this could not fix the problem. It seems like the furnace will have to be replaced. Until then, the temple faces two problems:
1) The water in the pipes could get frozen in the extreme cold and cause the pipes to burst, thus causing huge damage to the building itself.
2) Due to the extreme cold, people have stopped visiting the temple and thus the temple has not been getting the usual donations required for its monthly costs. Note that the temple has to pay a monthly mortgage of over $2,000 in addition to the water / gas / electricity bills.
Our initial estimate of the cost of a new furnace is $10,000. Determination of the exact cost requires a visit by the furnace company personnel which would cost a few hundred dollars, which currently the temple does not have. If 100 families donate $100 for this cause, we will reach our goal. Compare it with the cost of dining outside with the family just once.
The donation required for the current situation of the temple. We request you to consider donating for the temple furnace repair despite the fact that you have already donated for other causes recently. ANY DONATION BY MEANS OF CHEQUE WILL BE TAX DEDUCTIBLE. Contact Manav Garg 303-482-2486. Thanks for your generous donations.

|Rents for commercial office spaces rise in Madhapur - Time to invest!!|
|Contributed by Bhavani C on 2012-08-01|
|Demand for office spaces have been increasing in Madhapur recently. This is leading to an increase in the rentals of commercial spaces in the locality. "The rental market has remained stable in the past few months. However the average increase in the rental values is attributed to the growing demand for furnished spaces in the commercial segment," says a local realtor Saleem Mawani from Clear Tittle Properties. He further explains, "The demand for unfurnished spaces for both IT and non-IT offices do not witness much demand now. In fact there is an oversupply of these units in the locality. The rental increase is driven by the growing demand for furnished spaces in both IT and non IT offices." Buyers do not want to invest their capital on furniture and the interiors and would rather pay a marginally high rent for these units. "The rentals for an unfurnished and furnished space vary only by Rs 15-20 per sq ft per month," added Mawani. The data on MagicBricks.com also indicated this increase in rental values. The locality recorded an average increase of 16 per cent in the rental values of office spaces during the Apr-Jun 2012 quarter. The rentals varied between Rs 40-52 per sq ft per month during this period. As per Mawani the prevailing rentals for a furnished IT space varies between Rs 50-55 per sq ft per month whereas for non IT offices it is in the range of Rs 35-50 per sq ft per month.|
|Should the US Visa fee be decreased?|
|Contributed by Ankit Shah on 2012-05-09|
|India proposes to take the US to WTO against the latter's visa fee hike, which discriminates Indian software companies from American firms. "Department of Commerce proposes to seek consultations with the USA under the Dispute Settlement Understanding of WTO," Minister of State for Commerce and Industry Jyotiraditya Scinida said in a written reply to the Rajya Sabha. Consultations give the parties an opportunity to discuss the matter and to find a satisfactory solution without proceeding further with litigation. After 60 days, if consultations fail to resolve the dispute, the complainant may request adjudication by a panel.|

|The Religious Affiliation of International Migrants|
|Contributed by on 2012-03-09|
|An estimated 214 million people -- about 3% of the world's population -- have migrated across international borders as of 2010. While the percentage may seem small, if the migrants were counted as one nation, they would constitute the fifth most populous country in the world, just behind Indonesia and ahead of Brazil.
Nearly half of these migrants (49%) are Christians, and the top country of origin has been Mexico, followed by Russia and the Ukraine where borders changed after the collapse of the Soviet Union. The second-largest group of migrants are Muslims (27%), among whom the largest share has come from the Palestinian territories, followed by Pakistan, Bangladesh and India.
Jewish migrants represent a smaller share of the total number of those who have crossed international borders to a new destination country. But relative to their numbers, they have by far the highest level of migration compared with other religious groups. About one-quarter of Jews alive today have left their birth country and now live somewhere else.
While migrants come from a very diverse and widespread array of countries, the vast majority end up immigrating to a relatively few areas -- North America, Europe, Australia and the Arab states of the Persian Gulf.

|Tips while buying an apartment in India|

|Tips while buying an apartment in India : Make sure to check your amenities as promised
While taking the posession, make sure you check all the requirements are met. All the amenities are provides as promised and mentioned in the original agreement. By all means, consult with the real estate developer on any changes from the agreement amicably, before going to the other routes.
Recently in Mumbai, a builder constructed a 10-storey building, and promised few basic amenities with all the flats. On the completion of the project, the builder did not keep his promise, and allegedly shirked off all responsibilities. The residents co-operative society filed a complaint with the consumer forum against developer. The complainants had listed their grievances and gave a break-up of the money paid by them for the amenities. They needed a compensation with an interest of 9 per cent for each year till 2011, and an additional Rs 10,000 for mental agony suffered by them.
The Central Mumbai Consumer Dispute Redressal Forum has passed an order directing the builder to pay over Rs.1.5 lakhs to each resident. This was a big relief for many apartment owners, and an alert for the builders to make sure they keep up to their promises.

Many countries including US allow their citizens who live abroad to cast their votes by going to the nearest embassy or consulate or even by mail.

|Family entertainer - DARLING Telugu movie - Don't miss|
|Contributed by GV on 2010-04-27|
|Entertaining from the time of ‘Tholi Prema’ till ‘Ullasamga Utsahamga’, director Karunakaran has always tried to make the audience smile. With ‘Darling’, he made his ground even stronger. ‘Darling’ is a late winter and early summer treat for movie buffs in Denver. Undoubtly its a cool treat and complete family entertainer with no vulgarity, that goes in a soft background.
The director Karunakaran has written a pleasing screenplay. Most of the time, you’ll wear a smile watching the uncomplicated screenplay. G V Prakash’s music is pleasing as well with the cinematography by Andrew receiving major attention. Andrew has captured the scenes in Switzerland and Araku so beautifully. Even the art department deserves a word of praise. The biggest turn on of the movie is the dialogues that make you giggle often. Prabhas has evolved as a matured actor. His expressions in the movie are hilarious and the director has got the best out of him. Veteran actors Prabhu, Chandra Mohan and others have done their jobs effortlessly. Kajal is cute as ever (remember Magadheera). Yesteryear actress Thulasi as Prabhas’ mother has done a good job with her broken English that’ll make you laugh. Actors as Prabhas’ friends are hilarious with Srinivas Reddy and others. All in all, all actors have done their job to perfection under the guidance of Karunakaran.
In toal, the movie is a family entertainer. Not much of violence, nothing vulgar!

|I see the same pattern in other cities with Indian grocery prices. Toor dal costs $2.99-$3.49 for 4lbs bag in Houston and Dallas. Just that we are a bit away from these big hubs, raising the prices so high is not the best trend. I spoke to a couple of shop owners, and they say they just get a 25cents to 50cents per bag. This is not believable though. Satvik is the only cheapest in Denver, but compared to the Indian hubs, they are still very high. Someone should take initiative to slash these prices and make reasonable profits.|

|Radio Mirchi getting prolonged... Need entertainment|
|Contributed by Sanjay on 2009-06-27|
|Radio Mirchi conversation getting so prolonged between Pinkal and Madhu. Sometimes the talk is getting into sideways. It would be nice to get some serious entertainment, and more songs. Need some coordination between the producers and the RJs to play the songs. Also, questions to the callers can be a little straight forward, so more callers can be accomodated. Just my personal thought!! How do other feel about it? Thoughts are welcome.|

|A man was getting a haircut prior to a trip to Rome. He mentioned the trip to the barber who responded, "Rome? Why would anyone want to go there? It's crowded, dirty and full of Italians. You're crazy to go to Rome. So, how are you getting there?"
"We're taking TWA," was the reply. "We got a great rate!"
"TWA?" exclaimed the barber. "That's a terrible airline. Their planes are old, their flight attendants are rude, and they're always late. So, where are you staying in Rome?"
"We'll be at the downtown International Marriott."
"That dump! That's the worst hotel in the city. The rooms are small, the service is surly and they're overpriced. So, whatcha doing when you get there?"
"We're going to go to see the Vatican and we hope to see the Pope."

|Idiot of the day|
|Contributed by Venkat on 2009-06-15|
|Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson went on a camping trip.After a good meal and a bottle of wine, they lay down for the night, and went to sleep. Some hours later, Holmes awoke and nudged his faithful friend.|
"Watson, look up at the sky and tell me what you see."
Watson replied, "I see millions and millions of stars."
"What does that tell you?" Holmes asked.
Watson pondered for a minute. "Astronomically, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets.
Astrologically, I observe that Saturn is in Leo. Horologically, I deduce that the time is approximately a quarter past three. Theologically, I can see that God is all-powerful and that we are small and insignificant.
Meteorologically, I suspect that we will have a beautiful day tomorrow.
What does it tell you?"
Holmes was silent for a minute, then spoke.
"Watson, you idiot. Somebody has stolen our tent!"
