Message to Canadians of Asian Origin

Canadians of Asian origins living in their new home country should work hard to create a happy life for themselves and others. It is also important to given back to society in one way or another for the betterment of the society as a whole. I agree, we can not forget our ties back home. However, we should ensure that the Indian political system should not have bearing on our friendly ties here. As responsible Canadians, we must understand the Canadian Charter of rights and responsibilities.
