Curious Case of the Non Resident Indians

Its quite funny how indians quickly get the american accent by just spending 10 days there.
Recently met a gujju guy who spoke english as only gujju can with a pukka gujju accent.When he returned from america he started speaking quite a diff tounge.
Indians are so attracted toward America .
The americans give them second class citizen status.
Each and every country gives 2nd class status to foreigners settled there.
Whats wrong with india i ask
Kya hamare desh mein roti nahin hai?
Jine ke liye kya chaiye roti kapda aur makaan
jo ye dharti deti hain
phir kyon matrubhoomi ko chood kar jaate hai ye log

Chirag, if the NRIs were all in India, they would have occupied the posts which are taken up by the others today. Wouldn't that have raised the unemployment rate? In a way, they are doing a favour to India by going away.

Take a case of a large family living under the same roof. Arent the children who move away doing a favour to their parents by creating space for the others? This doesn't mean that they don't love their parents or don't care for them.

All those leave India are not extremely competent. Some of them do not have the courage to work hard & slog out. A successful Indian in India is much more intelligent than a suceesful swiss or American.
When Chiraag laments about people who have left, its not people like you, its the other lot who would have created more wealth & opportunities here. Its good ordiniary people like you are out. Solves unemployment problem a bit

Now that I read your message again, something doesn't make sense. If you are saying that all those who leave India are not competent and that people in India are more intelligent, what is wrong if the NRIs are staying abroad? According to you they are not competent as the Indians residing in India so what is the problem if they look for jobs elsewhere?

Either you admit they are more competent and it is unfair that they leave India, in which case if they come back they will be taking up quite a few posts in India; otherwise you stick to your theory that they are incompetent in which case they are better off abroad.

I am deleting my previous message which doesn't make sense either.

Rolling the Rs

Undoubtedly several people speak the accented English as some kind of statement. But if one stays here for certain length of time, the American accent does creep in. Since you have to converse with the goras here you have to imitate their accent. I myself have had to wreak havoc on the pronunciation of my name.

Anyways, chirag2000 maybe that gujju friend of yours was trying to impress you; in which case you should be happy that atleast someone finds you worth that

Not this name, bhai. My real name jo maa-baap ne diya tha.

And beware - before you offer a job to chirag do hazaar.
If he accepts, imagine what the water-cooler discussion will be in your office ha ha ha. He waxing eloquent about samudragupta, "laandyas" (whatever that means) with the office receptionist.

i know Mancha Bhai...majaak kar raha tha yaar !!!

About Chirag's job...well, he'll have a job of wiping jism off the floors in the "Local All Negro Gay Nude Bar"...... I don't think they'll be much bothered about his views on the Landyaa dynasty.... plus he'll have to bend a lot while he is wiping the floors, so there won't be any dearth of generous tips from satisfied costumers.....

I remember once Rajiv Gandhi said. "its better to have braindrain rather than having brain in drain"

I guess accent is like cloths, if someone likes American accent why can he/she learn it an use it. by speaking in accent does't make one any less patriotic.

Again "holier than thou" .. Why does everyone all of a sudden think that they are on some kind of a moral highground ??

Chirag bhai, while you are entitled to your opinion, roti kapda and makaan is by human nature, not enough to satisfy ones ambition. Next you will say, everyone go to jail. There you get free roti, kapda and makaan.

If the bare necessities were enough, there would be no progress or inventions.

Now, I am not saying that there are no opportunities in India. There are. There are also opportunities abroad. And some people take that path instead. If you have made a conscientious effort to stay in India and earn your RKM, good for you. If someone decides to earn it abroad, good for them, too. Where is the problem. No one is forcing you to go abroad. So why be upset ??
