"America is a very powerful country," Jaisalmer, India

    Newer Older

    These kids are required to speak English in school; speaking even a word of Hindi entails a fine of 20 rupees.

    The young gentleman appointed himself group spokesman, and asked where I was from. When I told him the United States, he said, "America is a very powerful country." I told him that India was powerful too, but he seemed skeptical.

    When he asked my caste, I told him that America didn't have castes. We had a nice chat, but by the time it was over I think he'd concluded he was talking to a fool.

      all that english propaganda has paid off guys! I think English is the only reason why India is still a better and popular outsourcing location of the world...otherwise China would have overtaken India long time ago :)
