Wanted: 'Wife' going to study in Canada

Recommended Posts

Indian families desperate to get their sons to Canada are posting ads in newspapers to find brides who are on track to being accepted into a Canadian university and willing to take a new husband along, says a former Canadian citizenship judge.

The ads are part of what some media in India are reporting is a booming industry based on families paying the travel and education expenses of students studying abroad, in exchange for marriage.

Ads for students typically seek a young woman who has passed the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) required by Canadian post-secondary schools. On the flip side, parents of those who have passed the English exam and face paying $50,000 to $60,000 for a two-year diploma in Canada are also placing ads to find “spouses” willing to foot the bill.

I never understood the craze of desis to go to foreign countries. 

If you're living in metro cities like mumbai, delhi, chandigarh, etc , they're already way too modernized , with almost every foreign company catering to comfort them in terms of food , clothing, entertainment, etc .

Chandigarh has beautiful roads and very clean. There is also a beautiful lake there. The roads and airports in Punjab have improved a lot compared to few decades ago.

Exactly what I am saying. What is sukh nowadays , esp for youth ? Food, Clothing, entertainment, sex. And they can have all of it modern cities and that too with vast variety. Unless you're a homosexual , india is not constricting to you and therefore I see no reason to migrate , unless you're a homosexual in india which is like being trapped in a big jail and being in the 1860s. not so modern now

What I don't get is

1. Why are Jats leaving jat land ie punjab

2. If you have C$ 60,000 to spend why not hire Canadian Lawyers to secure a Work Permit which is a step above student visa n step below PR.

3. I don't think girls getting good scores would be stupid to accept such proposals. 

4. Good part is Intelligent girls & their family don't have to pay Dowry for wedding.

Maybe the material goodies is not enough.

There are probably other factors as well.

I remember a show when Harjap Bhangal  (well known immigration lawyer in the UK) was presenting. He mentioned how there is less corruption in general and rule of law in western countries and how that does play into people wanting to move out.

That's a bit ignorant, like there aren't loads of other communities that haven't been settled and part and parcel of the society there for millennia.

One word "Favouritism"

Jats being ruling class in Punjab don't pay taxes, get free electricity n water, get bank loans at cheaper rates which they later get write-offed.

Still they wanna leave !

Why punjabis want to leave India? 

No jobs in Punjab. Discrimination against rural folks by city folks. Hard to get any work done in any sector without bribing. You have no opportunity in Punjab if you dont have money. Most of the people who wants to leave are basically from farming background. They are barely barely break-even after their hard work in fields. 

 

Why above method?

i don't understand punjabis on choosing the most stupidest way to migrate. If South Indians can fill hundreds of thousands of IT jobs in silicon without spending any "migration" illegal scheme then what's stopping punjabis to study in India and get work visa or something. We got the habit of choosing the easy way out.

You know there is NO good IT school in Punjab, right?  You must be thinking things are equal for Hindus and Sikhs in Hindu India!

    • Well, for starters, Bhai Gurdas ji wrote this, not me, and of course it is accepted as ਪਰਮਾਣਿਕ (authentic) by the Panth. Far be it for me to state the full and final meaning of any tuk, from any source. But since you asked my opinion, yes, I would say all of the above. The stain remains in the sight of Guru Sahib, the sangat, non-Sikh, and the bemukh, too. For a practical application of this, I would say: I would be highly skeptical of a adult pracharak who has full knowledge of what Guru ji wants us to do, and still commits bajjer kurehits, and then later does peshi, and wants to sit on the stage above the sangat and lecture them on Sikhi again. I think most of the sangat would agree. So all of those "babas" in the Youtube videos posted by the OP, they would not have the right, I think, to sit on the Gurdwara stage and preach. If they want to pesh and live a humble Sikh life, that's fine. Thoughts?
    • Makes me think while nobody wants to break their spoon, at least the spoon works just as well once repaired, it's just obviously been repaired, but hey that's better than throwing the spoon out.
    • A moorakh like me would need to listen to Katha on this. For now, what in your opinion, is the summary of what you posted? The blemish of apostasy remains in the eyes of who? Guru Sahib? The public? The apostate himself? I can understand that it remains but what exactly is it saying? Is this blemish one of distrust?
    • Here's another post you can confused face.  I wouldn't want you to be bored.
    • No apologies required. Just to let you know where I'm coming from, Bhai Gurdas ji says when you become a bemukh, even if you come back to the Guru, the stain remains: ਜੈਸੇ ਘਾਉ ਘਾਇਲ ਕੋ ਜਤਨ ਕੈ ਨੀਕੋ ਹੋਤ ਪੀਰ ਮਿਟਿ ਜਾਇਲੀਕ ਮਿਟਤ ਨ ਪੇਖੀਐ । Just as the wound gets cured with medicine and the pain also vanishes, but the scar of the wound is never seen to vanish.  ਜੈਸੇ ਫਾਟੇ ਅੰਬਰੋ ਸੀਆਇ ਪੁਨਿ ਓਢੀਅਤ ਨਾਗੋ ਤਉ ਨ ਹੋਇ ਤਊ ਥੇਗਰੀ ਪਰੇਖੀਐ । Just as a torn cloth stitched and worn does not bare the body but the seam of the stitch is visible and conspicuous.  ਜੈਸੇ ਟੂਟੈ ਬਾਸਨੁ ਸਵਾਰ ਦੇਤ ਹੈ ਠਠੇਰੋ ਗਿਰਤ ਨ ਪਾਨੀ ਪੈ ਗਠੀਲੋ ਭੇਖ ਭੇਖੀਐ । Just as a broken utensil is repaired by coppersmith and even the water does not leak from it, but it is repaired form stays.  ਤੈਸੇ ਗੁਰ ਚਰਨਿ ਬਿਮੁਖ ਦੁਖ ਦੇਖਿ ਪੁਨਿ ਸਰਨ ਗਹੇ ਪੁਨੀਤ ਪੈ ਕਲੰਕੁ ਲੇਖ ਲੇਖੀਐ ॥੪੧੯॥ Similarly, a disciple who has turned away from the holy feet of the True Guru comes back to the Guru's refuge when he feels the pain of his actions. Although he is freed of his sins and becomes pious, yet the .blemish of his apostasy remains.  (419) ਭਾਈ ਗੁਰਦਾਸ ਜੀ : ਕਬਿੱਤ ੪੧੯ ਪੰ. ੪
