Note to All American Workers:
All ye spineless, beaten down rats. Pay heed.
While all you cretinous morons were busy cheering at the Nascar races, attending stupid tea parties, viewing American Idol and watching that modern-day Caliban Tom DeLay make an ass of itself on Dancing With the Stars, your politician SOBs and corporate mothafuckas sold you out to the Coolies in India and the Yellow Monkeys of China.
Look at your sorry plight now.
The official unemployment figure in the U.S. is currently pegged at 9.8% (although the real unemployment rate is 16% if you take into account those who have stopped looking for jobs out of frustration and the part-time workers).
As your numbers swell the ranks of the unemployed, dispossessed and foreclosed Americans, weep, weep that businesses and employers in India are stomping on your face and gleefully ramping up their hiring.
Here’s a sample of Indian companies that have stolen your best-paying jobs.
Take note, you jackasses they are just a fraction, a small fraction of the several hundred thousand Coolies who now sit in air-conditioned cubicles while you lambs have been tossed to the wolves.
Now, multiply the above tables several-fold.
That’s likely the number of well-paying jobs the Coolies have stolen from you.
And where do these Indian Coolie shops get the majority of their revenues?
From American corporations, of course.
Don’t be surprised if many of these scumbag U.S. corporations are bailed out by you, the effete, emasculated American tax-payer.
Oh, keep a napkin handy to wipe your copious tears before you pore over the below sample of top Indian companies that get their business from American corporations but hire mostly Coolies:
Folks, bear in mind that the above tables are just a sample.
Just a tiny microcosm of your nightmare.
It’s not just your skilled software jobs that have vanished from America.
Your credit card call center, customer service, tech support, patent and trademark filing, tax preparation, copy-editing, pharma research, radiology, tutoring and more jobs have gone east while you dunces were asleep.
As you struggle to pay your bills and look in vain for a safe haven from the arctic winter storm sweeping through your lives, the Coolies linger over their Kesar Pista Burfis and Barista Cappuccinos in marble floored malls in Hyderabad, Chennai, Bangalore and Mumbai.
Picture all this prosperity happening at your expense:
* More malls are coming up in India (Just a generation or two ago, these Coolies didn’t have enough money to buy a pound of rice at the corner grocery store).
* More multiplexes are being built in India (Just a generation or two ago, these Coolies didn’t have enough money to buy a Gandhi-class ticket i.e a front-row seat).
* More Coolies are buying cars in India (Just a generation or two ago, these Coolies didn’t have enough money to buy a bicycle).
* More Coolies are now talking haute couture (Just a generation or two ago, these Coolies didn’t have enough money to buy cloth to cover their cojones and their women went bare-breasted).
* More Coolies are going to engineering school while you struggle to pass high school and get into big-time debt to attend college (Just a generation or two ago, these Coolies‘ forbears were illiterate, who couldn’t read or write because their parents didn’t have money to buy their spawns a notebook and a pencil).
* More Coolies are going on vacations while you enter bankruptcy (Just a generation or two ago, the Coolies didn’t have enough money to buy a few logs of wood for their eternal vacation at the graveyard).
Think We are Joking?
Take a look at Infosys, an Indian software and BPO bellwether.
Infosys continues to add employees while laid-off Americans increasingly live off scraps from local soup kitchens.
Infosys CEO Kris Gopalakrishnan boasted to Wall Street analysts the other day:
We continue to add employees, compared to last quarter, there is a net increase in employees this quarter….We have given a compensation increase for our employees….We are giving an average 8% increase in India and 2% outside India.
When was the last time your American sweat-shop gave you a rise?
Infosys is crowing that it’s added three more Fortune 500 clients in the latest quarter, taking its Fortune 500 client-base to 112.
We say the majority of the 112 companies are U.S.-based and sold you out.
In an interview with CNBC India, Gopalakrishnan bragged:
We’re confident about the future….But we’re definitely confident. And that’s the reason we’ve increased the hiring from 18,000 to 20,000. We’re hiring a lot of laterals. We’re continuing to hire sales force. We’re giving the salary increase. So definitely there is confidence in the business.
American dickheads, are you even vaguely confident about your future?
Of course, not.
At the current rate, you’ll soon have no future. Just a nostalgic past.
It’s not just the Indian Coolies who are sucking your blood.
A billion yellow monkeys from China also have their fangs deep into your neck, schmucks.
Next time, some c*cksucking economist waves the banner of free trade or your corrupt SOB Senator sings the virtues of free trade, remember it’s a dirge playing at your funeral.
American dolts, rise up and protest this outsourcing of your best jobs to the Coolies and Yellow Monkeys.
Free Trade is not Your Salvation.
Au contraire, it’s Your Death Sentence.
Call your local Congressman and Senator and ask him to impose a heavy tax on American firms outsourcing your livelihood to these Indian and Chinese companies.
Wake up, knuckleheads – Stop the Coolies from feasting on your flesh.
Kettle calls the Coal Black.
A Retired/Semi-Retired Coolie is calling others name….Kali Kalam Da Sami (It is Kali Yuga Oh God!!!)
You write above: A Retired/Semi-Retired Coolie is calling others name….Kali Kalam Da Sami
If ever your job is outsourced to the Bangladeshis or Nepalis, we’ll see how you react.
It’s not Kali Kalam but Kaali Kalam (hard times) for the Americans.
I find it strange that America, whose response to terrorism (9/11 and other events) has been so ferocious, and where the govt. (seemingly) values the life of its citizens (at least more than many other countries), the rate of unemployment is so high.
The greed of a few seems to have prevailed over the general good.
Back home, it is not as though IT and IT folks are welcome everywhere.
Consider the following:
1. The conventional areas of engineering have been hit badly. Specialized areas of engineering which are non-IT in nature, are finding few takers. Apart from Comp.Sci. graduates (BE/BTech/ME/MTech), others like civil, mechanical, electrical and electronics engineers are also joining IT because it pays well. The brick-and-mortar companies (industrial/manufacturing) have about as much love for IT companies as you have for outsourcing.
2. By design or coincidence, IT folks are paid a salary that can not be matched by other industries. Imagine people working in schools, banks, smaller private firms, govt. offices and educational institutions so on, and there is a huge disparity between the salaries at every level. Do you say that an IT engineer’s job is more important that a school teacher’s ?
And it is wrong to argue for a hike for nonIT people merely because some IT guy is getting lots of money.
This disparity is gradually seeping into the society (in addition to an already existing disparity between the very poor and others).
3. Our govt., which patronizes IT co.s so much, esply the big three or four, doesnt realize that these co.s are cornering a disproportionately large share of (somewhat skilled) human resources, and worse, putting them to very mundane tasks.
Who are going to be our scientists, architects, decision makers and leaders in future ? Areas like pure science and humanities, which are already neglected, will receive a death blow sooner rather than later.
Why do you think that you get a salary in any other area of work, but you get ‘compensated’ in IT (and some other corporate jobs ?
The compensation is being given to you, because you are being deprived of something.
1. You write: I find it strange that America…the rate of unemployment is so high.
Besides the collapse of housing, mortgage and banking sectors, the other major reason for high unemployment here is the scourge of outsourcing. Virtually every job that can be outsourced is being farmed out to India. The other day we read of a statistician in the Bay Area (CA) losing his job to India.
The powers that be here (particularly, the Republicans) seem to be completely oblivious of the consequences of pauperizing your countrymen on the altar of corporate greed.
2. You write: By design or coincidence, IT folks are paid a salary that can not be matched by other industries
Given the salary inflation in the IT sector, we’ve always wondered how workers in the govt and PSUs manage.
Teachers, unfortunately, are not well paid even here. We’ve read of teachers in some parts of the U.S. being so poorly paid that they sometimes work as waitresses in a second job and dread the thought of their students coming in for dinner.
Digressing a bit.
You have served a long time abroad I guess!
Wake up SI(d). Our motherland is in the worst of times and it needs its sons and daughters (though you may claim to be adopted by another). http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/8299780.stm . What say?
1. Remarkable story. Thanks.
Must read story and also the comments below the piece.
2. You write: Our motherland is in the worst of times and it needs its sons and daughters
So does ours.
The situation is pretty grim in our country (U.S.) too though it’s not easily apparent to many people.
3. For those too lazy to click on the above link, here’s an excerpt:
Well!If you are impressed by the comments, then Mr.Shiv sharma’s(a guy living in relative propinquity to you) must have definitely evoked a bit of nostalgia. You are really blessed to be living in the “land of the free and brave”. BTW, when you are busy reviewing the masal dosas in US, the very people who invented those are struggling to feed their families. You can do more than just debate “why the 5$ kaarakozhambu (gravy) in Saravana bhavan is better than the 6$ one in Anjappar?”. Not that you shouldn’t, but the umbrella of topics under your blog can expand and include the more humane topics as well, apart from cinema and food. It may inspire atleast one guy amongst the talented expatriates to fight and not rather take flight. I am not trying to be overweening , just trying to get my point across here.
After all, the word “diaspora” is coined after jewish migrations and all jews (including those in “your” country) still consider Israel as their motherland and want to return at some point or the other. The Indian diaspora should take notes from them and realise that now that they have lived their dreams (the great american) or after done so, they should pack their manjapais (bags), come back and help their brethren realise theirs too.
Read this.. http://www.jpost.com/servlet/Satellite?cid=1184766045671&pagename=JPost%2FJPArticle%2FShowFull . I heard that the response for this roll-call was astounding. How many of our diaspora would come back, let alone fight? I know about a young couple (very) resigning their job in BCG (Boston Consultancy Group)and starting an NGO for social upliftment in India. There’s more joy in teaching fishing than fishing.
Pardon me for my garrulity
1. You write: It may inspire at least one guy amongst the talented expatriates to fight and not rather take flight
Very well put.
We will try to feature non-movie, non-restaurant review posts too on the SI blog.
2. Read your Jerusalem Post link.
In Israel, religion and the Holocaust has proved to be a binding cement drawing Jews from far and near. India lacks strong rallying points, which is perhaps one reason why the diaspora has remained largely aloof and indifferent to their birth-place. Plus, of course the fact that Indians are mostly callous SOBs with little regard for their fellow human beings..
SI Wrote: Indians are mostly callous SOBs with little regard for their fellow human beings..
Really!!! Maybe I guess this is true since it came right from the Horse’s mouth.
You write: the Horse’s mouth
No understanding. You meaning Aswin_Kini? 😉
Sire, you speak on behalf of all Americans and vent your frustration on the so-called Coolies who you say are plundering your jobs.
But you conveniently forget one point.
1) Coolies don’t work out of choice, but by force. We don’t come and take away your jobs, but the so-called Business Entrepreneurs in US (Aka CITI, IBM, HP, and others) outsource your jobs to us because they want to save money. Do we have a choice to refuse your jobs??? No. Why? Because we have people to feed.
2) The so-called Coolies consist hardly 5% of our Indian Population. Considering the fact that the other 95% still starve and are ignored, we have nothing to gain either. Infact, thanks to your so-called outsourced jobs, we are forced to pay extra for almost everything, be it ordinary food items, provisions, or something major such as homes.
3) Coolies don’t spend a lavish life as you think. Please don’t speak about only blood-thirsty managers who are always on a spending spree. What about people like us who slog day in and day out. We don’t get 5-day weeks like you. We slog out every inch of our blood. We don’t rob you brother, we just get paid for work – whether you like it or not. It’s not our problem.
4) If you don’t like jobs being outsourced to India, kindly ask your folks at the US Senate to stop it. I do feel sorry for Americans who lost their jobs. But blaming us for every loss of yours is like Pakistan blaming every obstacle on India.
5) Last but not least, spare Indians! We are not the only guilty ones! Why spend so much of your time bashing us! If you don’t like us, why speak about it? Why show-off? YOu say Indian movies are cheap, but waste your money on it again and again. You say India stinks, but speak about it again and again. You say Indians are SOBs without realizing the fact that your parents were Indians too!!!!!!
For once, please stop blaming others for your woes. IF US is suffering, it’s because of your stupid republicans and the lazy Obama, not us. We are not the ones who wasted money on Nuclear bombs and unnecessary wars. We are not the ones who overspended using Credit Cards. Just because we got your jobs by chance doesn’t make us criminals.
1. You write: We are not the ones who wasted money on Nuclear bombs
Was it Bangladesh that conducted these nuclear tests?
2. You write: Do we have a choice to refuse your jobs???…we have people to feed
You must say No to these stolen jobs and let your loved ones starve.
What did Mahatma Gandhi say about the Jews?
Bapu felt that German Jews ought to commit collective suicide, which would have aroused the world and the people of Germany to Hitler’s violence. Source: George Orwell, Reflections on Gandhi in A Collection of Essays P.178
3. You write: we just get paid for work …. It’s not our problem.
It will be your problem sooner rather than later. Make sure you always keep an extra sack of pacha arasi (a variety of rice) for the hard winter days ahead.
4. You write: If you don’t like jobs being outsourced to India, kindly ask your folks at the US Senate to stop it
Yes, so many of us are doing it.
5. You write: Last but not least, spare Indians! We are not the only guilty ones! Why spend so much of your time bashing us! If you don’t like us, why speak about it?
Give these Indians an inch, they’ll take an yard and start dictating what we should or should not write. Idhu enna anyayam (what kind of injustice is this).
6. You write: We don’t come and take away your jobs, but the so-called Business Entrepreneurs in US (Aka CITI, IBM, HP, and others) outsource your jobs to us because they want to save money
True and we’ve highlighted corporate greed in the piece.
7. You write: Just because we got your jobs by chance doesn’t make us criminals.
Last we checked, possession and enjoyment of stolen goods is a crime, even under the IPC wateva act.
Those jobs that are now feeding the Coolies rightfully belong to the Americans.
Wow! So if you get a chance to get adopted by a better family then will you [trash talk] ? That is what this article is all about. (will you publish this you [trash talk]? note down the Ip address please!
1. Did we forget to leave a tip for your mama. 😉
2. BTW, you must love us so much because in the last 20 days, you’ve posted under at least five different names, all from the same IP.
3. Focus on the issue.
Hey wait a couple f years (not a phrase of expression-really-at the most till 2012) then it will be just the Yellow monkeys doing all the “stomping on your face”.
Before worrying about the Yellow Monkeys coming to stomp on our face, you ought to be concerned about your plight. The Yellow Monkeys have already rung your door-bell. Your pansy Prime Minister Manmohan Singh can’t visit your state Arunachal Pradesh without the Chinese kicking up a big racket.
Yup. I was lazy so I didn’t paste the link.
Thats the story I was refering to and also the other one about war in 2012. Oh no, don’t worry about me… I am learning chinese before long. I guess I’l also have to start liking dogs or cats or frogs. I heard they are tasty. The only thing I can’t stand is not bathing for a week or something. Really hoping its not true…
1. We really doubt that we (the U.S.) are going to return all of the hundreds of billions of dollars we’ve borrowed from the Chinese. Close to a trillion (Source: Wiki).
2. You write: The only thing I canâ€™t stand is not bathing for a week or something. Really hoping its not trueâ€¦
We have a desi friend in New Jersey who visits China often. We’ll ask him but doubt we’ll get an answer. 😉
Thinking on what Gandhi said… IMNSHO, if it weren’t for WW2, India would have got its Independence in 1980s (after the death of Bapu due to old age and the high population of India is proving difficult to manage). One of the better things Hitler and Mussoulini did was to destroy the British Empire.
You write: IMNSHO, if it weren’t for WW2, India would have got its Independence in 1980s
These ‘What Ifs’ are dicey.
Maybe, Subash Chandra Bose would have organized a Revolutionary Army, Maybe, Nehru would have split with Gandhi, Maybe…
This is such a foul mouth blog/review of every movie and restaurant that I can not help but compare your web site and the related websites to “THE WALL OF A PUBLIC BATHROOM”.
1. You write: This is such a foul mouth blog/review of every movie and restaurant
Wow, you’ve read every one of our Bollywood movie and Indian restaurant reviews!
Boy, even we haven’t done that. Well, we have serious work to do. 😉
BTW, our Bollywood and Indian restaurant reviews are so credible because they are unbiased.
2. Seriously, you must be an idiot nonpareil.
Why would you need to read every single review to get an idea of our writing style.
With things like you floating around, no wonder they have all those if you are from New Jersey, you must be stupid jokes.
Ok Sire, so what should we exactly do? Kindly enlighten us. Arguing with you is equivalent to asking China to agree that Arunachal Pradesh is not theirs, it never happens.
So since you really poured your heart out on us, Coolies (Well, I am not involved directly in the IT industry, but since I am in ITES, I am a coolie either ways)- enlighten us on what we should do?
Perhaps you want us to become saints and renounce our jobs???? – Sire, who is gonna feed our families.
perhaps you have not visited India in decades. Sire, I am earning 25k a month, this is not enough for me to spend much more than a decent living. Thanks to our government, people have started sucking our blood in every possible way. Autowallahs fleece us irrespective of our please that we are not rich buggers! The Real estate wallah won’t believe when I say a 30L flat is not at all “affordable” to me by any means, even the waiter at the hotel wants me to tip them just becoz I work in the so-called IT industry (Whereas I am just in ITES).
Do you have any idea about what we “COOLIES” go through?
Our bosses suck the life out of us everyday by providing us meaningless tasks with unachievable deadlines. I don’t remember any colleague of mine working less than 62 hours per week (Mind you, this is no exaggeration). We get peanuts compared to the so-called IT buggers who earn 70k-1L.
Infact, most of us are yet to get a salary raise. Thanks to recession, our bosses have found a good way to milk our blood till the very last drop.
If you are gonna say that many USites are suffering the same fate. Then listen to this.
1) we cannot file for unemployment.
2) We don’t have laws that prevent our employers from using us like machines
3)We are forced to obey the unreasonable deadlines just because we need a job to stay.
4) We cannot put forward our innovative ideas to our boss because he/she will pass it off or implement it and take credit for it.
5) We are paid peanuts when compared to Americans
6) Inspite of your dollars flowing into our MNCs, we remain poor.
Don’t think that all IT people live a HI-FI life, spend life in Discotheques and party around. The truth is 95% of Indian youth today spend their life worried about their jobs. We are no better than you!
1. We feel your pain. 😉
Seriously, your comment was a moving piece. And we are touched by it.
There are so many injustices in the world that make our blood boil. In our own way, we rail against some of the more blatant ones. While doing so, we sometimes step on other toes or offend some Holy Cows.
2. You write: Arguing with you is equivalent to asking China to agree that Arunachal Pradesh is not theirs, it never happens.
frankly …the message has been conveyed by you in the past ….through diff articles ….so I have nothing new to say ….except that ….this how globalisation works ….tomm it will be manila , sri lanka , bangladesh etc ….already manila is a destination for IT companies and Bangladesh / Srilanka for textiles …America today / and India in the future will have to move up the value chain and create more jobs …
1. Yes, this is an update of our previous posts in the context of the rising unemployment in the U.S.
2. Globalization is not a panacea for the world.
Our (i.e. U.S.) experience should be instructive to other nations going down that perilous path.
off topic …Assembly elections in Maharashtra / Haryana and Arunachal Pradesh today …..Heavy voter turnout at all places …
Voted today … first thing in the morning in Mumbai …hopefully this would be the end of 10 yr misrule of Congress-NCP in Maharashtra
BTW, is Raj Thackeray a Trojan Horse sent in by the Congress to destroy the Shiv Sena/BJP combine?
difficult to say …but Raj thackeray is a spoiler for sure …the no of votes for Shiv Sena + BJP + MNS is much more than Congress+NCP …but that does not translate into seats –thanks to Raj Thackeray
Hopefully people will not make the same mistake this time
You write above: Hopefully people will not make the same mistake this time
Well, the exit polls have the ruling Cong-NCP alliance ahead.
Read Aswin_Kini’s post, and Aswin I feel very sorry for what you are going through.
Asian countries function very differently from the West unfortunately. We dont have control of how many manpower hours we put in and there’s no minimum wages here. Its really a dog eat dog world out there. You slog and slog only to make your boss’s dreams come true and it’s such a plight to what’s happening all around. As for the situation in America, let’s really hope the Nobel Winner Mr Obama can help you guys out although everything around him seems so beauracrazy at the moment but let’s not lose hope.
If you guys are free, do check out this book, Confessions of An Economic Hitman. Talks about how all these big nations are selling out Asian countries and ME by global domination. And America like India and Malaysia, its the citizens that suffer while the rest are reaping it big big time.
1. Confessions of an Economic Hit Man looks interesting. Just checked it out on Wiki.
Our local library has it. We’ll pick it up soon.
BTW, the book has 698 reviews on Amazon, of which 405 are 4-star or 5-star. Impressive.
2. You write above: letâ€™s really hope the Nobel Winner Mr Obama can help you guys out although everything around him seems so beauracrazy at the moment
Another bad move by Obama. Tax Dodger Crackdown Shelved By Obama Administration
Wow. You’ve tried really hard to be provocative but it turned out to be funny because the intention is blatantly obvious.
Nah, you must be mistaking us for some other blog.
Read about the 16 year old headmaster on the BBC site, then found it on yours too. its good to see good happening without being disrupted by powers that be.
Aswin Kini’s post is a reality, I work for a California based company, and I do refer to us, the IT people as the ‘edupidis’ of the US and that’s the way we are treated. though I got into the field to do something creative and offbeat than the regular office work. anyway coolies is not a bad word I think it’s the reality.
The Indians still have the hangover of the raj and those who have the power mimic the British attitude and the schools still stuff the pupils with all stuff unrelated. Nothing that builds character or skill has ever been taught in the colleges as always, We indians are sending out servants, who latter grapple and step on each other to reach the top.
We still don’t encourage self-employment as it involves WORK, still we work ourself to death at someone elses office because it gives us more money that if we work for our passion, and ofcourse more recognition than self employment.
Why be like the 16 year old headmaster and really change the world . hmm.. well it means we should care for the world and the people in it.. we wouldnt get the car next year or the apartment that we have got on EMI.
Well think I’ve ranted some and more.
But that is the reality, no respect for originality or, even hard work. If we lick the asses of the superiors we get to the top.. well… to say the least, its no different from the India you left some years back. It’s only gotten worse the last 10 years after most youngsters got trapped in this quicksand called IT. Or do I rather say it would have been better if people stuck to the jobs that excited them for the work than to the jobs that excited them for the salary.
And IT is one field that excites with the salary. The money is what makes the parents pay a hefty sum to get their wards through engineering colleges with speciality in computers, and the places that offer diploma courses get a hefty sum and teach nothing, just colorful dreams of loads of money. I’m sick of this industry advertising every year that there are more than 20000 openings in this sector.
I think once people realise that they are just ‘edupidis’ in IT industry , they will get back to economics, and maths and physics.
IT will flourish in India as long as there’s demand from the U.S.
With things getting worse in the U.S., there could be more business for Indian IT companies in the short run as U.S. firms feverishly cut costs.
The only solution to this problem is to create laws that benefit Americans inspite of outsourcing. For example, the US Senate should agree that they would outsource only a certain % of jobs to India.
Let’s say there are about 15000 jobs generated by a company XYZ, the company should be allowed to outsource only 5000-6000 of the jobs to India.
On the flip side, all Indian companies in US should be compulsorily required to recruit Americans. The US government should allow only Indian companies who provide atleast 60% of the jobs to local americans.
US MNCs should be fined if they outsource more than a stipulated number of jobs. This should be done particularly for the giants Microsoft, IBM, HP, and DELL.
The message should be clear to these MNCs – You can’t make money at the cost of the localites.
All said and done, let’s see what Drama OBAMA can do about this?
You write above: The only solution to this problem is to create laws that benefit Americans inspite of outsourcing
No, the outsourcing tiger is out of the cage.
It’s tasted blood and will not stop its gory feasting until it’s put to sleep.
how come no yellow bastards came to protest here.. you used being Indian as a justification for using ‘coolies’ by bringing forth the niggaz using ‘niggaz’ argument… but how can you justify the use of ‘yellow monkeys’?
You write: how can you justify the use of ‘yellow monkeys’
Because we love India tooo much.
Just in case, the Internut went out while you were snoring, the Yellow Monkeys are getting aggressive against our Coolies over the last few months.
Please see (below) two recent examples:
1. China ‘strongly’ protests PM’s visit to Arunachal Pradesh
2. China snubs India with stapled visas for Kashmiris
BTW, haven’t you heard of Me against my brother…my brother and I against our friend….my brother, my friend and I against our enemy (the Yellow Monkeys).
No, the outsourcing tiger is out of the cage.
Itâ€™s tasted blood and will not stop its gory feasting until itâ€™s put to sleep.
We all know this. My question is, “What are you gonna do to put the tiger back in the cage or kill it”.
Writing blogs aren’t gonna be of much help.
We are raising awareness of this extremely important issue through the SI blog and also asking our local political leaders to address this issue.
Outsourcing will decimate the American families.
Free trade is not the answer but Fair Trade, which means some degree of regulation to protect the locals. We know our Indians. In a thousand years, India will not have a H1B like Visa to provide jobs to Bangladeshis or Nepalis while its programmers are unemployed. There will be blood on Indian streets. Sadly, the folks here are so bovine.
Just in case you guys think the party is going to last forever, remember when America goes down, it’ll take a lot of other countries with it.
ok 🙂 Aktar mentioned something about a 2012 war.. Could http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2012_(film) be a prophetic one?
I have only watched 3 of the 10 movies in that list.
1. You write: Dr.UnkHaf D. Aktar mentioned something about a 2012 war..
Dr.UnkHaf D. Aktar was actually talking about this news item – Nervous China may attack India by 2012: Expert – on China that came out a few months ago:
2. Wonder how we missed the previews for 2012 (film).
3. From your list, we definitely seen Truman, but unsure of 2001 and Minority. Can’t remember any of them. Vaguely recollect Truman being the weirdest.
Actually I have seen 4 of the 10.. Truman has probably been done to death on cable.
I had so much fun with Drag Me To Hell in the theater.. I am getting the “Unrated” version from Netflix tomorrow. Jolly good fun..
That reminds us of our Netflix DVDs lying fallow.
Watched Into the Blue Review – B Grade Junk for obvious reasons.
Yeah Drag Me to Hell is ‘fun’.. Jolly good fun 😉
But I felt really bad for Christine…
Hey, looks like Drag Me to Hell featured a desi guy Dileep Rao as a psychic. Interesting.
Wonder if he had a prominent role in the film?
We’ve seen the trailer several times. Will watch the movie soon.
After Christine, Clay and Mrs. Ganush, Dileep’s Rham is the 4th most prominent role in the movie.. but Mrs. Ganush is so gnashingly dominant, that he is completely overshadowed.
Kelambu, I predicted the finish correctly.. so maybe I am not as dumb as I think.
Dileep Rao is an ABCD from L.A.
Is he the third desi in Hollywood after Kal Penn and Naveen Andrews?
Yup, Confessions of an Economic Hitman is an eye opener into how global domination is taking place. Initially reading it made feel anti american but let’s face it, you cant be anti american, not with coke, shell and mcdonalds flooding the markets.
On another note, speaking of movies, I’ve been hearing a lot of good reviews for Paranormal Activity. Unfortunately it’s not playing over here. You guys catching it? If you are, remember to pack in a lot of courage, i heard it scared many people’s pants off!
Paranormal Activity has received good RT ratings but is not running in our area (nearest theatre 35-miles).
How much ever you go loud… americans won’t cry.
An average american is just a zombie, satisfied with a weekend drive-drink-dance-date.
If something like this happens in India (the yellow monkeys’ case is nowhere near comparing with situation in America) people will come out and protest. The political scenario in india has always been left oriented even the liberal like congress has confined to those standards… so even for a critical project like freeways each and every citizen who is affected has to be taken care of individually.. or the project never finishes. This is why we grow slowly but government is never a super power and goes out of control of people as opposed to the American govt. which takes its citizens for granted, never cares for their rights. I think some power like NWO controls the government there, so the president and his office are just rubber stamps. …
hey, btw whats your take on Obama’s nobel prize. You pile up weapons and go out and solicit others to reduce weapons in the interest of world peace and you get a nobel prize… wow. You pollute and ask others to ride a bicycle and you get a nobel prize…. 🙂
1. It’s true that most Americans have been swept up in the consumerist culture that they’ve lost all sense of activism and community participation, even if it’s for their own good.
Public protests are one of the remarkable things about India.
Even though the poor in India are a beaten down lot, they are still willing to join some clown (usually for a few Rs) in Morchas, Dharnas, Rasta Rokos, Stone Throwing, Bandhs et al.
But for all these protests, the lot of the poor in India would be infinitely worse.
In India, you can’t imagine a situation like Merrill Lynch, which posts billions of dollars of losses, collapses, is bailed out by the U.S. Govt and then the executives receive $3.6 billion in bonus. Sickening.
And now Goldman Sachs (which received $10 billion in tax-payer bailout money plus was bailed out additionally when the govt bailed out AIG) is getting ready to hand out tens of billions of dollars in bonuses. Disgusting.
Tell ya, no country like India. 🙂
