Life's Lessons that everybody learns @ one stage .

hey guys i m just writing important experiences in my life , that i have learned throughout my life . may be many of like this and would suggest some more in their comments






1. always take care of your health , money is important but don't spoil your life and health for just money . money is just a commodity that everybody uses  for  living . if your health is not in your favour , nothing matters how much money you have earned . loss of money is not a loss at all but loss of health is really big one,

2.don't think too much about the future and past mistakes . future always comes in present form and past is gone forever , so there is no point of thinking too much about future and past .

3.  enjoy life as it comes , don't let the beautiful moment slip from your hand .

4. always plan too much before taking any important decisions . but also take some risks where they are needed

5.  don't think negative at all

6. during hard times , faith in GOD and think  , it shall pass too .

7. enjoy life with friends and dear ones. make good social circle

8 . everyday is a new beginning

Journey Of My Life

Hello guys , hope everybody is enjoying another sunny weekend in Toronto . guys , few days ago , me and one of my friend were  discussing all the changes in our life in these 10 years . there are so many major transitions in our life from our childhood to mature adult life . we were discussing how our life is totally different from the generation that is born after mid 95. so in this post i just aspire to write some of things , that are in my mind and that i wanna share with those Indian guys or guys from around the world who were born in mid 80's or are around like 25-26 years old now. may be some of guys will remember all the exciting things that we use to do during our times , that was our golden time . bravo 25 .

Nokia 3310 To IPhone 3GS


in 2003 , when i was doing graduation , i purchase my first cell phone nokia 3310 , as it was most popular and cheap phone that time . i think , it was most common phone at that time. it was very exciting moment at that time to use even use the simple cell phone , that does not have any specific features . only few ring tones by default. many of the guys from collage time , still would be remembered , how solid and heavy cell phone

that time in 2003 .

now just in the span of 7 years , i have iPhone 3gs now. with exciting features. i never , imagined in my life at that time that , there would be such a dramatic change in cell phone technology . guys , nobody had ever thought at that time , there would be such cell phone like iPhone , which can work on home wireless Internet network and have exciting features like YouTube , GPS , google maps , search engine , skype ( voip calls to Internet ) . ipod is also included for downloading music . what a change in technology. may be even in future there would be new technology will make cell phones more sophisticated and with advanced features.

Mah Childhood memories

hey friends , today i gonna share sm of mah childhood memoreis with you . i know that everybody have some special memories nd moments associated with their life . i was fond of reading comics ,especially hindi comics . below is chacha chouhdry comics .  chahcha choudry was comic series ( may be still in publication) regarding indian genius chahcha choudhry whose mind was faster than comuters . main cast in this comic series were chacha , chachi  ,  sabu ( big giant man from venus planet) who was living with chacha choudry nd protect him from enemies during fights , chachas dog roko . chahcha choudry had so many encounters with bad  goons nd indian society differnt elements . chacha was guiding everybody through his wit and giving socail messages in hi comics . i think so many kids whose grown up in mid 90's hv simmilar feeling like me , when they used to purchase comic books nd read ,that time tv channels nd internet was not popular nd accesble like today , so the comics were the only mode of fun nd entertainment when u were feeling alone . some many other comics series were popular , but flavour of reading chahcha choudry is totally exciting nd different


THE ZU MOUNTAIN SAGA ND SMALL WONDERS

     
i m  pretty sure , that many of the kids ,may  hv seen zu mountain saga ( chinese action series ) on home tv ( that time popular indian channel ) . it was chinese action drama series (dubbed in hindi) . it was excellent action drama , with kungfu actions and special effect at that time . this was the story centered around angels and demons in chinese culture , usually used to telecasted on 6.00 pm , when i was in high school . i hd to go to bring milk for our home , so my mom also scold me not leaving the tv channel nd go to bring milk after the 5.30 tv telecast , small wonders . the memories of that time are always etched in my mind .


the small wonders , was the tv series based on human robot vicky nd her family (lawson family ) . it was fun watching these series evening time . main characters were jamie , vicki , ted lawson nd harriet in their neighbourhood
 The storylines revolve around V.I.C.I. (an acronym for "Voice Input Child Identicant", pronounced Vicki), an android in the form of a 10-year-old girl, built by Ted Lawson, an engineer/inventor for United Robotronics, in an effort to assist handicapped children. The robot is taken home by Lawson so that it can mature within a family environment.

hey friends , if somebody hv similar childhood memories  like me , just comment . if u like this post then plz reply or comment . hope many of the guys who used to watch  this type stuff might like this post thanxs.  
rules are made to be broken , so breake the rules , take risks , f*** the world sometimes nd enjoy life more

Life Is Beautiful

your life will change , when u always remember two things .


1. every situation and condition is not permanent , wheather good or bad , it changes
2. keep trust in Waheguru (God )and keep going in life as naturally , as it is going , without expecting anything from life .

Mother Earth - Save Her future




earth is not a just , one planet in solar system , its like our mother , who provides us life and shelter. there are so many things we , human beings are doing to harm or bleed our mother . global warming and natural disasters always reminds us our faults and mistakes , that we are doing environmently .

save earth , save planet , save nature , save human being future should be our motto in life

the main thing is how we can do that , its simple

1. save energy , electricity and water resources to their best
2. use other modes of commutation like cycles or public transportation instead of motor vehicle.
 3.avoid luxury /live simple life
 4.cut down the wastage in daily life
hope for better future , better life . harry makkar :))

Importance Of Positive Attitude In Life



 hello  guys , here is your friend harry makkar, back again . today , i wanna share my views with you  on positive attitude. suddenly today , this thing came to my mind , and i thought that i should share my views on this thing with you . may be it can change your attitude regarding life.

friends , i think that nothing is permanent in life , neither happiness , nor sorrows . the situations are not the same everytime . everything changes according to time and situations . so from today , i think everybody should take one resolution , be happy everytime , even in critical times . i know that saying and writing this is easy , but adopting and implementing is very tough  , but i think we can try . even the critical situations in life are not always permanent, always remember this fact. i also struggled in life , faced so many problems , but became tougher and learnt so many things from my mistakes and past experiances. experiances are your real part of life , wheather they are good or bad.

so friends , in this post i wanna expect from myself and you , to change your life , by changing your attitude towards life , keep positive attitude , make good social circle , observerse nature around  you . sometimes we forget to observe so many beautiful things around us , in hectic and fast paced lifestyle . if somebody's attitude changes , with my this post , then i think writing of my this post on blog is worthwhile. so see you guys in next post . until then goodbye , keep lifestyle in high spirits 

yours friend always harry :))

irelax - best mind relaxing software for sleeping on iphone



















hello guys , here is your friend harry makkar again . hope everybody is relaxing on weekend . i have just returned from my visit to burice peninsula beaches in weekend ( i will post pics on blog ). friends already have checked my pics on facebook. here , today i wanna mention irelax software on this blog . this software is best for those who feel irritation while not having enough sleep due to noise in neighbourhood or traffic etc. friends you can download this software on iphone ( it is free on iphone - use itunes ) . if you use laptop , then you can also download the pc version from website http://www.ilbsoft.com/ . i didnt check , but may be more softwares of this would be availble on internet for your use. hope you can find another one better than this .

again , i come to the usage of this software . for iphone , it is very easy to use and have so many options . just run this software , select required melody or sound , and play the soothing sounds of rain , wind or birds sounds in your ear and just relax and sleep . may be placing headphone in your ear , would be quite irritating for you , but when you will just relax and sleep , you can enjoy sleep for 6-7 hours , without any disturbance (better switch your phone to silent mode , to avoid unncessory callings during your sleep) .

friends, i m getting full advantage of this software , you can use it best if you have iphone . but unfortunately , if you dont have iphone , then i think pc version would help . i didnt try that . hope , may be it will work . i will try to find some new softwares, for differnt phones and will mention it in new post . hope , that my friends , who are suffering from insomania , or irregular sleep pattern can get the advantage of this technology . so friends , at last enjoy your weekend and sleep well , better prepare for monday morning blues .
your well wisher harry makkar :)

New immigration rules canada 2010 - Plight of Internatinal students and Temporary workers















hello friends , hws going on . hope everybody is enjoying summer dayz in toronto . this is my recent post regarding new canadian immigration rules 2010 posted on june 26 , 2010 and this is regarding new skilled worker immigrant immigrant. guys , i read this new relaese throughly. it seems that this new release "Government of Canada will welcome more economic immigrants in 2010 " is quite confusing and plightful for the temporary workers and international students coming to canada . on the one side govt. of canada is giving student visa to international students easily to get hefty amount of canadian currency as a college fees , but on the other hand immigration rules are becoming tough day by day .it is acceptable fact that most of the students and temporary workers come to canada , just to get permanent residency . wheather most of the people wont be agree with me , but this is fact . but due to higher competition in canadian job market and tough HRDC approval procedure , tough immigration policies in CEC and skilled worker categary , many student and temporary workers find easy procedure of permanent residency in PNP programmes of alberta , Manitoba and sasketcwan .
here , one important fact , that i wanna mention is many of the international students move to these provinces to get easy PR where they can do any job under low skilled or semi skilled category , which is quite disturbing for those students who wanna do job in their required field , but dont get easily due to high skills demand in job market . at last i just have one question still left in mah mind , whose answer is very difficult to find still, if students have to move different provinces like sasketchwan , alberta and manitoba and have to do any odd jobs there to get PR , then what is the point of their study (in any professional courses) done here in ontario and BC . still confusing question . anyway , i hope that Australia like international students condition never happens here in canada . at last , i apologise for my mistakes in my views , so any comments or suggestions are most welcomed .thanxs

enjoy weekend :)) harry

Transit services in toronto











hello again .many of the torontonians use transit services for many reasons. basically , there are many transit services for the public transportation like TTC , Mississauga transit , Brampton transit and YRT . GO train is also good option for the new urban settlers, who live in Mississauga or Brampton area , who have to commute , everyday to downtown area ( GO transit saves time of Mississauga as well as Brampton area residents )

i have mentioned websites of various transit services .

http://www3.ttc.ca/
http://www.mississauga.ca/portal/
http://www.brampton.ca/en/residents/transit/Pages/Welcome.aspxresidents/publictransit
http://www.gotransit.com/publicroot/en/default.aspx
http://www.yrt.ca/

various monthly and weekly pass options are available Toronto residents to commute . they can choose best option according to their committing area as well as connecting routes .

for new immigrants , there are two options to go to downtown Toronto

if they are living in etobicoke area - they can choose 191 service to go to Kipling subway station from there , they can go to main central hub of downtown area . either they can go to finch subway station by taking 36 of ttc

for Mississauga residents the best way to go to downtown is through islington subway station by taking 11s of Mississauga transit ( that goes from westwood mall - Mississauga )

Missisauga - Hub for asian immigrant community
















hello friends , this is my first post in Punjabi Toronto post(ptp) blog . as you know i live in Mississauga , so let me descirbe about the beauty of this place . Mississauga is urban city in outskirts of Toronto downtown area , its well populated and well planned . most of the immigrant families from India , Pakistan and other Asian countries have chosen Mississauga as their home , because due to their community strengths and good cultural multidiversity . most of the Punjabi families from India and Pakistan live in Mississauga and Brampton area , due to easy availability of work and house rent is also less as compared to downtown Toronto area . the picture in front of you is of square one - shopping hub for Mississauga residents
