Welcome to the Indo-Okanagan Times After many months of work, countless interviews and much research I am honoured to offer you this, the first issue of the Indo-Okanagan Times. What we learned during this process was that there is a need for a community newspaper in both Punjabi and English. One out of every 20 citizens in British Columbia is Indo-Canadian, and that number is expected to increase. As well, 30 percent of the Indo-Canadians in this country speak Punjabi in their homes, which was one of the main rea-

sons we decided to publish in both languages. I want to express my gratitude to the advertisers in this publication who see the potential this new venture will bring. Without your support, this paper would not be possible. Of course you would not be reading this paper today if it were not for the dedication of a wonderful staff. You’ve been right here, helping out wherever needed these past few months, and finally everything has come together. Lastly, I wish to thank you, the reader. Your thoughts and comments

are welcomed, as we hope you will think of this as your newspaper. It is our goal to offer you a well-written publication that adds to the identity and pride of the communities we serve, while focusing on celebrating your achievements. I look forward to continuing to work together with you all, in the months and years going forward. Sincerely, Bob Gill

Crack down on rape required Dear Editor,

For the past 10 years, rape incidents have increased by 200 per cent in India. It’s unbelievable that the government and those in power haven’t cracked down on these heinous crimes until recently where they’re considering passing tough legislation. Unfortunately, it’s al-

most become the norm to hear about young women who’ve been raped. As these rapists haven’t been punished appropriately, it has lead to the point where a fiveyear-old girl was raped and died due to her injuries. There should have been an outcry from the Indian society, but their silence signifies their complacency with these vicious crimes.

Something must be done to salvage this seemingly morally bankrupt society. I left India 50 years ago, and while I’m proud of my heritage and ethnicity, I do not want to be associated with this rape culture and complacent community. While visiting India, the corrupt interference with justice by the police and politicians is

rampant. If a rapist is in connection with them, the politicians tell them not to charge them with a rape crime. They’re only interested in gaining votes by bribing and buying them. Unfortunately, they’ve reached the point where politicians use drugs to lure young people to vote for them so the elected party can continue and make millions of rupees.

The political power is highly abused and it must come to an end so we can at least save our future generations.

Water levels abating in Okanagan

Although flood conditions in the Okanagan valley and surrounding areas have begun to abate, local officials are advising residents to remain vigilant as recent heavy rain events could cause water levels to rise quickly. Currently, water levels in Okanagan Lake are stable but still on the rise. “Okanagan Lake is expected to crest about mid-June,” said Des Anderson, Head of Public Safety and Protection for the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations. “It continues to rise at a rate of .5cm to 3cm per day and we are discharging as much water as we can given the conditions.” By conditions Anderson is referring to the multitude of factors that go in to making decisions about water discharge. For example, an actual backwater developed south of the border due to the overflowing Similkameen River in mid-May. Discharging too much water may have caused a serious problem with that backwater had the Americans and Canadians who look after these things not been communicating as effectively as they do. When changing conditions need immediate attention, agencies on both sides of the border jump into action. The Similkameen River has settled down now, and Anderson said the river peaked on May 15th and has been dropping ever since, but had the backwater problem not at least been identified, it may have caused

serious consequences. Dale Kronebusch, Emergency Services Supervisor with the Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen, confirmed the Similkameen River is moving toward a less-hazardous situation. “There is enough capacity within the Similkameen River that I don’t think it is an area of concern – at this time,” Kronebusch said. In addition to remaining vigilante, residents are also being advised to keep in place any emergency measures they have taken. Janette Van Vianen, Director of Corporate Services for the Town of Osoyoos, said, “Those people who have sandbags out should keep them in place for at least another week or week and a half. We will have a better idea then as to whether the lake levels will remain stabilized or if levels will be increasing again.” Van Vianen is informed by the US Geological Survey whenever the level of Osoyoos Lake reaches 913 ft., at which time careful monitoring begins. As of May 28th, the lake level was 912.53. With the recent local weather events, many areas hit hard a few weeks ago should also be extra vigilant. The north Okanagan suffered some of the worst damage with one business in Lumby alone suffering damages approximating $10,000. Most rivers, however, have reached their peak and are expected to drop. The River Forecast Centre has ended a High Streamflow Advisory for the Thomson region. The Central Okana-

gan is a different story, however. The recent heavy rainfall caused by a significant upper-low pressure system may see the BC River Forecast Centre issuing a High Streamflow Advisory. The system will likely bring an eastern flow of moist air through the Interior possibly into early June, so residents are advised to keep a close eye on the weather. Although snowpack throughout the area is melting at a satisfactory rate, weather conditions, namely heavy rainfall and unseasonably hot weather, could tip the balance and see a sudden burst in snowpack run-off. As Dale Kronebusch from the RDOS said, “These recent weather patterns (in the Okanagan Valley) are playing havoc with the weather and water level forecasters. Traditionally the flooding events usually happen in the south first, then work their way up the valley north. Even though I think we are nearing the end of our ‘2013 Spring Freshet,’ I am not putting my rubber boots on the shelf just yet.” Sage advise to be sure. For more information, updates, or flood reporting, call the Provincial Emergency Program (PEP) at 1-800-663-3456. The line is available 24/7. Information is also available through most normal local government emergency channels.

Punjabi Women Celebrate in Kamloops

By Constance Roth

What do you get when you have more than 500 women, dressed their best, hair and makeup done, delicious aromas in the air, lively music and dancing? Teeyan Da Mela- of course. Members of the Punjabi community hosted their annual Teeyan Mother’s Day Mela Sunday, May 26 in Kamloops at Colombo Lodge. Mothers and daughters from all ethnic groups were in attendance for the sold out event.

Teeyan, also known as Teej is an important festival for the women of Punjab. “It is about happiness, prosperity and well-being”, explained Sharan Randhawa, one of the event coordinators. “It is usually celebrated in the Punjabi month of Sawan which is June. Young girls and women get together in the villages of India and perform Teej rituals. They get together and sing and dance which is called Giddha, and girls swing on decorated swings called peengs,” she explained

to the over 500 women and girls in the room. Randhawa continued, “They put henna on their hands and feet and get brightly coloured lenghans sewn to wear for their Punjabi dances. It is a time for women to get away from their daily chores and enjoy themselves. They prepare pakoras, samosas and sweets for everyone to enjoy at the festival.” After welcoming everyone to the evening’s event, Pal Sangha, co-coordinator, explained Teeyan 2013 was in celebra-

tion of Mother’s Day. Sangha said, “Your mom is the truest friend you will have. She will stand by you in your days of darkness, bring peace to your heart, and rejoice with you in your days of sunshine.” She hoped the women in attendance would take time to wish their mothers all the happiness they deserve, to appreciate their sacrifices, to love them and respect them and make them feel important and special.

Allison Bell, community connections coordinator with Kamloops Cariboo Regional Immigrant Society (KCRIS) who attended with her mother, Kathy Kilmartin thought, “It was a wonderful opportunity to spend some time with my mother, make new connections, and participate with other cultures in the community.” The evening included appetizers, and dinner, as well as traditional dances performed

by girls and women from the Punjabi community. After which those in attendance were encouraged to join in the dancing. Amongst the laughter, joy and warm embraces, these women were able to see each other for the people they are, and were able to appreciate the uniqueness of their differences.

Use a realtor, or go it alone? Do you really need a realtor when you sell your home, or can you do it yourself? Selling a home is one of the biggest financial transactions most of us will ever make. Realtors have the qualifications and experience to help make that transaction as smooth and painless as possible. Handling a real estate transaction on your own can be like trying to repair your own car; you may have all the right parts and tools, but unless you have the skill of a professional, you may end up making a very costly mistake. Most people who buy and sell their homes do enlist the services of a realtor.

Those who go the “do it yourself” route often wind up changing their minds and contacting a realtor when they discover the process is more complex, time-consuming and intimidating than they thought. The main reason people attempt to sell their own homes is to save on the real estate commission. But will you really save money if you sell your home yourself? Maybe not. Most buyers expect a discount from the seller because you aren’t paying a real estate commission and, as a result, may offer you less than fair market value for your home. Determining the fair market value

is one area requiring a realtors extensive knowledge and training. If you set your price too high, you may frighten off potential buyers; set it too low and you could lose thousands of dollars needlessly. One of your realtors most important tasks will be to help you decide upon a realistic market value for your home; one that will enable you to sell it quickly and for the best possible price. Through the Multiple Listing Service, MLS, your realtor will ensure your home gets maximum exposure to other realtors and their potential buyers. This is just one of the many ways a Continued on page 10

Use a realtor, or go it alone? Continued from page 9 realtor will market your home. He or she may also advertise in newspapers, on television and/ or on the internet. Your marketing plan may also include open houses just for other realtors and also for the public. A realtor will work with you to develop a marketing plan that meets your needs. Do you really have the time it takes to sell your home? A realtor will write and pay for the ads to market your home, remain available day and night for calls from prospects, host open houses on the weekends, show your property on short notice, screen potential

buyers, fill out all the paperwork, handle the negotiations and do the dozens of other things required to sell a home. When you consider the amount of time invested, are you really saving any money by going it alone? Many homeowners lack the skill to negotiate the best price for their home. Selling your home can be a highly emotional experience, making it almost impossible to remain neutral when potential buyers make negative comments about the property. A realtor is a skilled negotiator who can remain impartial during the negotiations – a job that allows you to keep your stress

levels to a minimum. When you consider all the services they provide – marketing, negotiating, dealing with contracts and legal issues – it pays to have a realtor on your side. Working with a realtor – a licensed real estate professional who is a member of his or her local real estate board and the British Columbia Real Estate Association – entitles you to access a vast array of services and benefits you will not get when you “do it yourself”. – Printed with the permission of the Okanagan Mainline Real Estate Board

Royals take match against Surrey Pakcan’s By JB Bansoota, Special to the Indo- Okanagan Times

In their third matchup of the season the Okanagan Royals played host to the Pakcan Cricket club from Surrey, BC Saturday, May 18 at Keogan Sports Park, Okanagan Falls. The Okanagan Royals won the toss, and elected to bat first. Raj Mohan and Bobby Brar got the game off to a good start with a 42 run partnership. However in the 21st over, Pakcan bowler Amjad Bajwa struck twice resulting in the Okanagan Royals

losing eight wickets for only 40 runs. Raju Gill and Nirmal Sran added 32 runs for the last wicket to take the Okanagan Royals to 124 in 40 overs. Amjad Bajwa took five wickets for 39 runs for Packan. In reply, Pakcan started off good and added 30 runs in the first 10 overs. JB Bansoota of the Okanagan Royals took three wickets in one over and brought the Okanagan Royals back into the game. The partnership of Ahmad Khan and Khaliq Chaman threatened to take the game

from the Royals, but the fine bowling of the Okanagan Royals was too much for Pakcan. Pakcan was bowled out for 107 in 24 overs. JB Bansoota took four wickets for 14 runs for the Royals. The Okanagan Royals have played three games so far this season, and have been the victors in all three match ups. Their next game is scheduled against the Surrey Hawks II at Keogan Sports Park, Saturday, June 15. Be sure to come out and cheer your team on.
