Main phir se selfish thoughts bolunga... Call me what you want..

This outsourcing might be good for India, but what about Indians like me? I want my job here, for my own personal selfish reasons.

On a serious note - This is what IBM told to their employees!
Actually those jobs have to go to India ...and you are right cha pai, this is a matter to be worried about for GC holders.

I did read the news. One laid off employee said in anger that "why not outsource the CEO from India and save some money?"

I can understand the feelings. I have been without work for quite some time in 2001 and early 2002. I can completely sympathise with them.

pelu, You'd agree - the SW market is getting generic product centric. Big time product developers like IBM, Microsoft have been outsourcing! ... may be some custom products me remain in USA but if product development goes to India - this gonna hurt!

India is my motherland and I feel proud. This is all good till it does not hit you in a personal way. What if 90% of jobs in software go to India? Then we have to go back. Nothing wrong, but have you thought that there will be so much competition even back home and with dime a dozen availability of programmers and other professionals, .. its scary...

I dont know.. but I still have a few more years to go in USA before I can think of returning to India.
