This is something we all Indians should dream of......

Place: Two Americans at IBM, USA.
Currency Conversion Rate: Rs.1 = $1000

Alex: Hi John, you didn't come yesterday to office?
John: Yeah, I was in Indian Embassy for stamping.
Alex: Oh really, what happened, I heard that nowadays it has become
very strict.
John: Yeah, but I managed to get it.
Alex: How long it took to get it stamped?
John: Oh, it was nasty man, long queue. That's why it got delayed.
I went there at 2 am itself and waited and returned by 4pm.
Alex: Really? In India, it is a matter of an hour to get stamped
for USA.
John: Yeah, but that is because who in India will be interested in
coming to USA man, their economy has been booming.
Alex: So, when are you leaving?
John: Anytime, after receiving my tickets from the client in India
and you know, I will be getting a chance to fly in Air- India. Sort of
dream come true.
Alex: How long are you going to stay in India?
John: What do you mean by how long? I will be settled in India, my
company has promised me that they will process my Hara Patta (Indian green
Alex: Really, lucky person man, it is very difficult to get a Hara
Patta in India.
John: Yeah, that's why, I am planning to marry an Indian girl
Alex: But you can find lots of US girls in Bangalore, Hyderabad and
John: But, I prefer Indian girls because they are beautiful and
Alex: Where did you get the offer, Bangalore?
John: Yeah, salary is good there, but cost of living is quite high,
it is Rs 1000/- for a single room accommodation.
Alex: I see, that's too much for US people, Rs. 1/ = $ 1000/-. Oh
God! What about in Hyderabad,Chennai & Mumbai?
John: No idea, but it is less than what we have in Bangalore. It is
like the world headquarters of Software.
Alex: I heard, almost all the Indians are having one personal Robot
for help

John: You can get a BMW car for Rs. 5000/-, and a personal Robot
for less than Rs. 7500/-. But my dream is to purchase Maruti, which costs
Rs.200000/- but has got a cool design.
Alex: By the way, who is your client?
John: A pure Indian origin company, specializing in 3D Gaming
called COS Interactive.
Alex: Oh, really, lucky to work in a pure Indian origin company.
They are really intelligent and unlike American Bodyshoppers who have opened
their Fly-by-night outfits in India. Indian companies pay you in full
even when you are on bench. My friend Paul Allen, it seems, used his bench
time to visit Bihar, the most liveable place in India, probably world.
There you have full freedom and no restrictions. You can do whatever you
want! I wonder how that state has perfected that system.
John: Yeah man, you are right. I hope our America also follows
their footsteps.
Alex: How are you going to cope with their language?
John: Why not? From my school days I have been learning Hindi as my
first language here at New York. At the Consulate they tested my
proficiency in Hindi and were quite impressed by my cent percent score in TOHIL
(Test of Hindi as International Language).
Alex: So, you are going to have fun there.
John : Yeah, I will be traveling in the world's fastest train,
world's largest theme park, and the famous Bollywood where you can see
actors like, Vrithik (son of Hrithik), and all. Esselworld is also near to
Alex: You know, the Indian PM is scheduled to visit US next year,
he may then relax the number of visas.
John: That's true. Last month, Narayanamurthy Jr. visited White
House and donated Rs. 2000/- for infrastructure development at Silicon Valley
and has promised more if we follow the model of Silicon City of Bangalore.
Bill Gates Jr. also got a chance of meeting him. Very lucky person.
Alex: But, Indian government is planning to split Narayanamurthy
Jr.'s Infosys & Sons.
John: He is a hard worker man like his father; he can build any
number of Infosys like this. Every minute he is getting Rs. 1000/-. It seems,
if you keep all his money converted as Rs. 100/- notes you can reach Pluto
Alex: OK, Good Luck John.
John: Same to you Alex. And don't go to Consulate in a Kurta Pyjama
because they will think you are too Indianised and may doubt you will ever
come back and hence your Non-Immigrant Visa may get rejected.
But don't forget to say "Namaste, aap kaise hai" to the Visa
issuer. It seems he likes that and will not give you a visa if you don't greet
him that way.

I thot one of my postings on another thread would be relevant here as well


Interesting article .

I agree with you biomed...this article is old and things have taken a downward trend...per the 2003 report Canada has slipped to # 8 just behind US.

For anyone to enjoy the benefits which Canada (or any country for that matter ) has to offer ...should have a sustainable income. If one has that then it is a great place to be , otherwise even the best country in the world can look pretty grim.

I happenned to chance upon another UNDP report which is a more current and was published in 2003.

it is a long report measuring many parameters, most of which i do not even understand ....but i checked 3 key indicators and felt very sad...sad not for Canada but for india.

According to this report 34% of population in india lives on less than 1$ a day. It is 0% for canada.
and only 49% of population has access to affordable drugs. it is 95-100% for Canada.
the one which really made me feel bad is that 24% of india's population is undernourished.

Lets hope a day will come when the whole of india shines and not just the urban centers.

The good news is india is on the right track....lets hope it remains that way and for the next 10 years without getting distracted ....when everyone , including the downtrodden starts getting uplifted then we will proudly say ...India is truly shining ....lets hope that days is not far.

What can be imagined, can be achieved.
