I bet you’ve received/read the following forwarded mail 1000 times –

(Putting the first few lines to save the cyberspace):

Say proudly, I AM AN INDIAN.
We Indians are the wealthiest among all ethnic groups in America, even faring better than the whites and the natives.
There are 3.22 millions of Indians in USA (1.5% of population). YET,
38% of doctors in USA are Indians.
12% scientists in USA are Indians.
36% of NASA scientists are Indians.
34% of Microsoft employees are Indians.
28% of IBM employees are Indians.
17% of INTEL scientists are Indians.
13% of XEROX employees are! Indians
Some of the following facts may be known to you. These facts were recently published in a German magazine, which deals with WORLD HISTORY FACTS ABOUT INDIA…….

……….

Should it be a matter of pride for us?

What say you?

    Err no.

    Those people are successful individuals, who found success or opportunity to get success outside India. They didn’t find that opportunity in India, a fact I can hardly be proud of as an Indian. They didn’t even work towards building something that would create that opportunity for other talented people to achieve such success in India. Hardly something to feel proud about.

    That said, feeling proud of being Indian is like feeling proud that I was born with black eyes. The country where I am born is not in my control, how can anyone be expected to feel proud or ashamed of that?

    Change the title of the post to “Proudly say I’m an NRI”

    The only Indians I’m proud of are the common men who have decided not leave the country permanently for a better career prospect, who didn’t act selfishly and put their own wishes in front (I can understand short term… but not forever), who laid their lives protecting the fellow Indians, who dreamt (or are still dreaming) a better tomorrow and built the sustainable India today, those who created jobs, opportunities, money, wealth and sanctity in the surroundings.

    I’m proud of the real Indians!

    I had heard a dialog in one hollywood movie. After a terrorist is known to have been trained by CIA, which turns rouge, the hero says, “Heck, America trains half of the world’s terrorists.”
    Now I feel like saying, India educates world’s half of intellectuals. It won’t add to country’s pride unless these NRIs do something for their motherland. I had written this post about this topic some time back on my blog.

    I’ve failed to understand why people think that there are more opportunities in a place where there’s already lot of development.

    I think there are much more possibilities & opportunities where there’s still a barren land.

    In India, I bet there are 1000 times more opportunities than USA.

    Yeah, there are more opportunities in India, but people want more money easily without much effort!
    So the statistics are like that!
    There is no wonder if after few days we get a mail..
    40 % of doctors in India are from nepal.
    like wise!

    When I say opportunity, its not just a job offered. It should be lucrative enough to keep the intellects from migrating. India sure has opporunities, and still there is something in US that attracts Indians.

    PS: I am not a supporter of NRIs or people going to US. 🙂
