comment Can I open a US bank account even if I don't live in the country?
When I moved to the US in 2004, American Express explicitly refused to get me a US-based card. My Australian account with them was in good standing. American Express is the last place I would go for any ex-pat moving to the US. Go figure!

comment Why Normalized Cross Correlation Score of different templates is high?
Right. I'm wondering if the diff operation is causing too much change to the template compared with the image. Perhaps look at using a high-pass filter as the aim is to make the spectrum "whiter" (closer to uniform across all frequencies). The whiter the spectrum, the narrower the image's autocorrelation, so the bigger difference between matching and non-matching areas.

comment Buying property in India : joint owner
Agreed, the issue of selling the property should be able to be done via a Power of Attorney. That might be a good thing to give the father anyway if the OP is likely to be in the US for a while: that way the father can deal with any paperwork that comes the OP's way.

comment Why Normalized Cross Correlation Score of different templates is high?
The trouble with histogram equalization is that it will make the statistics of everything look the same. That may be a bad thing if you're using NCC. Try some simpler pre-processing of the image: 1) remove the mean. 2) do a simple whitening (e.g. diff the rows from each other). What you're aiming for is to make the template look as different from the rest of the image as possible.

Without seeing them, my guess is that you're not subtracting the mean. See pre-whitening : sites.google.com/site/kootsoop/prewhitening

comment Are convolution and deconvolution kernel the same?
The deconvolution operation associated with $g$ is the same as the convolution of the inverse of $g$. The issue is that deconvolution is generally not thought of as a kernel operator; you need to use $g^{-1}$ (the inverse of $g$).

comment Filters performance analysis
OK, so it look like your first filter is OK. Your second filter looks like it's an "all stop" filter (i.e. no frequencies get through).
