John C. Dvorak and Adam Curry have fun with the Dumbass Desi, Vivek Kundra, that is posing as America's "CIO".

At one point Dvorak asks Curry how did a guy as unqualified as Kundra got his gig, and Curry alludes to the nepotism that enables people like Kundra and America's curry-scented CTO Aneesh Chopra to infiltrate our organizations.

This Kundra guy seems like such a flake, and he has this creepy lisp that really gets on my nerves. As is typical of Desis and slumdogs, Kundra called himself a "CEO" of his own one-person company and inflated his college credentials.

Here someone commented on Dvorak's blog on this phenomenon:

After having lived in India, I would never EVER hire an Indian without doing a thorough check on his/her academic credentials.

By many accounts, academic fraud in Indian culture is HUGE.

This was told to me by the Indians I worked-with but was confirmed by a visa officer I met in Dubai who had vetted thousands of CVs. According to him, Indians rarely had the academic credentials they claimed. Even if a degree is real, the whole school might be a fraud!

One frank Indian HR person I met automatically discounts claimed Indian degrees by one — if an Indian claims to have a B.A., they probably have about high school diploma, etc. If they claim to have a PH.D, they probably have done some Masters level work.

I’m not specifically accusing Kundra, BTW. I realize that he spent most of his life in America.

BTW, I expect an Indian to flame me for saying this. But what I say, I learned from _Indians_. I’m not a bigot — I like India and her people.
