I’m just guessing, but there could be two separate prayers,
because of the two families doing them separately

Best friend wasn’t called
Manjit Panghali: Murder victim’s husband claimed he phoned all…

Manjit Panghali’s best friend says the murdered woman’s husband never phoned her looking for his wife, despite his claim that he called all her friends in the hours after she disappeared.

–Now the facts will emerge I guess, Who are the first people You would call when a loved one goes missing.??

“I reported her missing after 26, 27 hours,” Mukhtiar Panghali said last week.

–Wow talk about something just not sounding right about that…. How many people can you call in 26 hours??

Manjit Panghali’s brother, sister and parents have told The Province Mukhtiar Panghali called them about 7 a.m. on Oct. 19.

–Would you not call her parents house “FIRST”.?? I know when my Brother-in-Law calls my Mom first if he can’t locate my sister Rosy.

Radio India host Sukhminder Singh Cheema said the Surrey station has promised to pay a $50,000 reward for information leading police to the killer.

– I hope they catch the cowardly bastard and throw the book at him… You can read the Full Story here at The Province.

Thousands of mourners are expected to attend a public funeral being organized for slain mother and teacher Manjit Panghali, says the Surrey, B.C. woman’s grieving family. The funeral is tentatively planned for next weekend in Delta, B.C.

Police in Delta confirmed Thursday that a body disfigured by fire found earlier in the week was that of the 30-year-old. Delta Police said updates on the investigation may be days or weeks away. 

As police probe the murder, a criminal harassment case against Mukhtiar’s brother Sukhvinder Panghali, 26, has been fast-tracked through Richmond, B.C., court. The charge against the aircraft mechanic was laid in September. The woman he allegedly harassed has since moved from her Richmond home.

Six Degrees of Separation.??

By Paul at 10:34 pm on Thursday, October 26, 2006

I don’t know how many of you have been following the story of the pregnant woman that went missing last Wednesday Oct 18th.She was on her way to a Yoga prenatal class. Mother, to a 3 ½ year old daughter, excited to be 4 months pregnant with her second child. Well today police finally released information, that the charred remains found Monday, are that of the above mentioned woman.
Her name… Manjit Panghali. Manjit was 30 years old, a grade one school teacher at a local Elementary.

Now you may be wondering why I of all people have brought this up in my blog. Manjit (Bubbs or Bubbli or Bubbles as I used to know her) I knew her between the ages of 12-16. She is my Ex-Wife’s Sister, my Sister-In-Law. It was a Long time ago that I was a part of that family 1987-1991. I feel horrible I am not able to console the family I once called my own.  I don’t know how they would take my calling or visiting them at probably the lowest moment of their entire lives. I want them to know how sad I am for their loss.  How sorry my whole family is for their loss. Please say a little prayer for Manjit, and her family. I can’t imagine how much they must be hurting right now. I hope they can catch and bring those responsible to justice as quickly as possible. I will try to get in touch with her family to pay my respects.  Until then, Manjit Rest In Peace…

WOW! Here we go again!! I’m Rambling!!!

By Paul at 8:13 pm on Wednesday, October 25, 2006

Hiya folks So I may not be putting in as many HOURS as our friend Johnny on his Blog……

But I am in the middle of searching for a job yet again. I am on call at the shipyards making $31/hour but one can only wait for a call so..  long before he must look at other avenues of income….. so here we are to ponder the thought…  is Blogging the Answer…? it certainly is for some people. They are able to make a living from their Blog but then does the argument “Trading Hours for Dollars” hold true ONLY for those of us that have a 9-5 Job.? (7-3 in my case) I mean seriously now…  are we going to say that people that Post items to their BLOG or other Internet website say a Hardware Review Site even…  Do they Not WORK.???  Do they not Trade Posts for Dollars.?  do making these POSTS not take up any time.??

My argument is simple I am not knocking the Perma-Bloggers…  all the power to them for having idea’s to post about. I am now going to Post My own thoughts now and then and see what comes of this Blogging.

I have opinions about the Canadian Immigration Department’s handling of My Wifes Visa to immigrate to Canada. I have an opinion about My Culture and when a baby arrives into the world.. it is Just my culture? (I’m East Indian or South Asian even we are also known as Indo-Canadian) I have things to talk about, but who will read my ramblings.? Will someone from immigration Canada get a hold of my link and will it help my wifes Case.? or will it help another.?  I doubt it, but here goes nothing…  I am going to Try this and ride it out a while and see what comes of it…


Thanx for reading…
