India vs Canada
India is one of the oldest surviving civilizations of the world. It is estimated to be at least 10,000 years old. Canada is relatively new, as it was created after the North American continent was discovered. The population of Canada comprises of many ethnic groups like French, English, Germans, Ukrainians and Indians.
Over the years, many Indians have migrated to Canada, and work there as valuable members of the community. Chief among the immigrants from India, are the Sikh and Gujarat people. They form the bulk of the ‘People of Indian Origin’ (PIOs) in Canada. Not many Canadian citizens are settled in India, and most come for work, pleasure or travel.
Both Canada and India are large countries. The population of Canada is less compared to that of India, maybe the equivalent of just 1 out of the 29 odd populous states in India. India has more than 200 languages and dozens of official languages. Canada mostly has only English and French.
Canada has a better standard of living, and that is the reason for the migration of people from India to Canada. India’s capital is New Delhi, and Canada’s capital is Ottawa. Canada’s climate ranges from temperate to sub arctic to arctic. It is said that you can go skiing, mountain climbing, surfing and forest trekking all in one day, because these different regions are not too far away from each other. India also has such climates, but they are geographically far away from each other. In the North, there is the Himalayas, which is cold. In the South, there are the backwaters and the greenery. In the west, there are the great deserts. India has water on three sides, as it is a peninsula.
There are many India-Canada NGO bodies, and the diplomatic relations between the countries have never been better. The nuclear deal has just been signed, and this paves the way for further cooperation in technology, science, military and defense ties between the two nations. Diwali is regularly celebrated at the Canadian Parliament. Nowadays, people prefer migrating to Canada because, when compared to US, UK, Australia and other developed countries, it has simplified laws for change of domicile.
Canadian unemployment was 8.5% in 2008, while India’s was 6.8%. Canadian inflation was only 1% in 2008, while India’s was very high at 6%.
Canada’s flag colors are red and white. It’s symbol is a maple leaf. India’s flag colors are saffron, green, white and blue, and it’s symbol is a chakra, or wheel of prosperity and development.
Due to a better standard of living, education and infrastructure, less bureaucracy, red tapism, corruption and population, people prefer Canada and migrate there.
