#3 India has asked IT companies across the world

Hmmm... the people that keep calling Indian IT guys idiot savants might be right then ?

#4 As someone that has worked with and around Indians since the mid 80’s, you can drop the savant part. Only a very small percentage are decent, the rest are head waggling incompetents.

I’m in Delhi now, nothing ever gets done exactly the way it should be done, or is ever 100% finished.

#5 My sympathies then. I've visited several shitholes around the world and had to work with all sorts of incompetents.

An innate sense of charity and a modicum of genuine civility for my immediate colleagues kept me from frustration.

I think you should tell your employer how you feel, and that they can definitely do better than India.

Don't think of it as clusterf**k. Think of it as an infinite array of (slowly) unfolding possibilities.

#8 I'm here taking some IT training because it costs 1/3rd what it costs in the USA. That and I have an Indian wife, so regular visits are required.

Right now I'm in Moti Nagar at the Koenig-Solutions offices. Suffering from a severe case of Delhi Belly due to the appalling food they serve.

Ace in the hole how, as cannon fodder.
