Messianic Jews say they are persecuted in Israel

I am very giving, very forgiving and never hold grudges.  (2 min ago | post #71739)

Yes, as a student at Cathedral School and later in life on a few occasions with classmates at IIT.  (5 min ago | post #71738)

CA = Chartered Account. To become a CA in India, one needs to pass a 3-tiered exam that's high on Commercial Math and intricate accountancy skills. Of the hundreds of thousands of candidates who take the CA exams each year, just around 1 % or so are declared successful.  (7 min ago | post #71737)

That's where you are wrong. When huge sums of money and pricey assets are concerned, one has to have his finger on the pulse of the markets otherwise the money will stagnate or will yield lower dividends or will run into losses. Having huge sums invested in leading blue chip companies, dealing with luxury properties and playing an active role as an investor in the precious metal trade is not easy - I say it is difficult as one has to know the ins and outs of the markets and keep up with the latest market trends and keep watching the company results and know when to buy, when to stay put, when to sell, when to diversify and so on. The final decision rests with me and not with my financial advisers. I have not just inherited a huge inheritance from my late parents and have sat on it like an inert machine but have made some pretty smart moves over the years that have increased the assets...  (10 min ago | post #71736)

I would have continued with the PhD at an elite US university after the integrated master's degree in a scientific discipline at IIT but my yoga put a stop to that idea and the rest is known.... On the other hand, the yogic experiences have revealed to me a profounder world of reality by direct contact with these subtle objects/events and their causal links with matter and so I am not fascinated by science as much as say a person who lives at all times in the ordinary consciousness. I am deeply thrilled only when I discuss mystical experiences and in ordinary subjects I get a kick from higher Math.  (19 min ago | post #71735)

I am not overwhelmed by materialism since I have seen much of the very best that material life has to offer since birth and so I am not attached to money/luxuries but more than this reason the real cause is that I am detached by nature from crass materialism, since, from age 4, I have been getting spiritual visions while in the waking consciousness and the mystico-rational side of life attracts me the most but if I tell you some of my horrific mystical experiences in the waking consciousness of recent times you'll be shocked despite you being an atheist.  (25 min ago | post #71731)

I want DAN DENNET to turn SPIRITUAL instead of being a crass materialist.  (34 min ago | post #71728)

COGNAC Even where brandy is concerned, trendy Indians who drink Cognac at home mispronounce the word COGNAC and most of them pronounce it as COG-NACK much to our amusement when the correct pronunciation is CONYACK. These tacky Indians make an ass of themselves even when they travel first class and I have overheard a few of them on first class flights ask the air hostesses if COG-NACK is available. Besides, they don't even know that brandy is drunk from a SNIFTER. LMFAO.  (52 min ago | post #71724)

ILLITERATE INDIAN WINE BIBBERS Few Indians sip wine (though the trend is catching on in the metros) and most of those who imbibe wines wouldn't know the difference between a cabernet and a suvignon, a dry wine and a non-dry wine and a sparkling wine and a fortified wine and they'd be hard-pressed to know which wine glasses should be used to serve the different types of wines. Most wouldn't know that a wine waiter is called a vin sommelier.  (55 min ago | post #71723)

INDIA ON WINE MAP RAJEEV SAMANT, alum of Mumbai's elite Cathedral School and owner of Sula Vineyards, has done India proud by putting her on the map of wine producing nations of the world.  (1 hr ago | post #71722)

The lush SULA VINEYARD located 4 hours away from Mumbai is owned by an alum of Mumbai's elite Cathedral School. The estate is simply beautiful and employs some of the best professionals in the wine business from around the world on a consultancy basis. We enjoyed the tour of the winery.  (1 hr ago | post #71721)

In Mumbai, KONKAN CAFE in the Taj Vivanta and MASALA KRAFT in the Taj Mahal are the best for authentic Indian food. In New Delhi, Bukahra is simply too good. But, the experts in non-vegetarian foods tell me that Malvan cuisine is way ahead of Punjabi food or North West Frontier cuisine. I am vegetarian and so where taste of non-veg food is concerned, I am clueless which is the better Indian cuisine. However, when it comes to the tantalizing food aromas, then, well, by just taking in the fantastic aromas I can certainly back the claim that Malvan food scores over the Punjabi and NWFP cuisines.  (1 hr ago | post #71720)

After linen, my preferred fabric is raw cotton silk. Pashmina or Cashmere for debonair winter wear is great.  (1 hr ago | post #71719)

LINEN OVER DENIM I prefer pure linen to denim any day which brings to mind the great linen range of suits, trousers, shirts and jackets that Shahab Durazi has come out with as part of his summer wear collection. Linen needs to be well cared for otherwise the creases tend to make the fabric look loose. A few creases make the linen outfit look naturally wavy which is hip. Yeah. Ask me!!!  (1 hr ago | post #71718)
