Tilak Mandadi is typical of slumdog CIOs that show up at American IT departments.  The first thing they do is shitcan all the American workers, then they bring in their buddies from Infosys, Tata, or in Disney's case, HCL.  Usually they are getting HUGE kickbacks for turning their new fiefdoms into curry dens.


Mandadi is trying to keep a low profile -- even his LinkedIn profile shows him to still be working at American Express, another site of ethnic cleansing at the hands of slumdogs.

We won't wake up.  We have been told that Indians are brilliant (look at all the doctors with Indian-sounding names) and that Americans are lazy; we are told there is a shortage of smart STEM workers so we need to import foreigners; we are told that we lack the training and skills to do this kind of work (look at all the "earn 50k a year in a few weeks by getting a certificate in programming/databases/networking").

We are lied to constantly about this on all fronts, and our enemies dismiss any complains with cries of racism and/or xenophobia.  Until that changes, Americans cannot "wake up".

To listen to Indian bullshit about how great they are is disgusting. The country is a corrupt shithole where nothing gets better.
Huge gobs of money are eaten by the political class leaving crumbs for the rest of them.
The country is so corrupt and nasty that the career of choice is no longer "DOCTOR ENGINEER" but government Babu who can then siphon of crores of rupees.
If you hire an Indian for a programmer you get a scam master who won't think like an engineer but only how to get the job done by ANY MEANS possible.
I've worked with hundreds and honestly most could leave with not effect. A few were worthy but that's about 5% maybe.
We the American Stem workers have allowed ourselves to be out flanked by a corrupt pack of liars.
I hope Trump gets elected and then kicks them all out. Tomorrow go. What a jobs program eh? Suddenly one million good paying STEM jobs? The country would go crazy.
Kick out the Mexicans and the same would happen for construction, landscaping etc. Sure prices would go up but at least we would all have jobs. We would be buying a lot less Chinese junk and could live normal lives, not the hyper consumerist existence that we have now.

The slumturd CIO's like "Man-Crappy" above might be worse than others, but at the end of the day, a lot of CIO across the board have been staking their careers on the ability to hire cheap scab slave job robber shits from india...and look where it's gotten us today

If USA doesn't belong to whites then all the jobs and industries stolen from USA by BRICs doesn't belong to them. Cut off trade now since those are stolen industries and does not belong to them.

I guess when you can't create any decent country at home you have to takeover one built by other people.

It's over for Americans and especially white Americans, well whites keep on saying, things cannot be generalized but it is known truth that Indians or South Indians only hire from their group, so whites may not help each others but South Indians do.  The only hope for America is if Trump gets elected, it may change something since he is talking common sense reforms else day is not far when whites will be on roads begging from South Indians and these people are without morals or ethics, note US management education fails in Indian context.  

Read new scam in India today, Indian railways contractors were serving cheap and low quality water on railways while charging in name of quality water.  So what can stupid whites expect from such community, well US CEOs have decided to make America slum so nobody can stop it now.


Remember, Indians believe in only taking and taking, that is part of its culture.  Everything for oneself and one's family.  Yes each culture has some rare exceptions but whites should have brain to watch and understand trend.  Go and see India, full of filth, garbage, unfit air for breathing, animals on road each street corner in even capital of country has 10-15 dogs, contaminated water and crowd everywhere.  This is what is vision of US politicians for America in coming times and all in name of cheap labor and parallel propaganda that South Indians are intellectuals, well they are cheaters and liars.

A Balanced View

I'm an Indian working in the IT industry and while offended by the racist and diabolical nature of this website, I believe in free speech and WILL TRY to understand the point of view of posters here.

Take it from me, it can indeed be very painful when ANYONE has to lose their job to corporate greed. It doesn't matter whether you're an Indian or an American. I was laid off before, it was not a pleasant experience and I don't wish UNEMPLOYMENT on my worst enemy. The kind of hardships I had to face would include my parents being forced to sell  their home just so I could afford to pay off my debts (I agree it was foolish of me to spend a lot more than what I was earning in the first place), loss of all my material assets (fixed deposits, car). Even my unfaithful wife left me for another man because of our constant financial stress during the 2009-2012 recession. But despite all this, I always tried to be optimistic and overcame each and every challenge that came my way with a smile on my face. I have always been a high wage earner by Indian standards and have traveled three times to the US to work on onsite projects. My experiences have made me stronger as a person and nothing really scares me anymore.

The real reason this website offends me is because it presumes ALL Indians are job thieves who automatically stand to gain from Americans being laid off, dehumanizes ALL Indians as low wage coolies ("slumdogs") and automatically presumes Indians are only capable of doing repetitive work that requires no imagination or creativity. That we are a nation of low IQ copycats, and nothing good can ever come out of India. I strongly disagree with all these points. For one, tens of thousands of Indian IT workers are laid off each year, some have attempted suicide because of financial stress and are equally stressed about losing their jobs as an American if not more. By offering a one-sided view, this website fails to see that "Indian IT workers are on the same boat and are only trying to make a living for themselves", that's where it acquires racist overtones.

Now coming back to the skills of Indian IT workers, factually speaking, LOADS of Indians have contributed to the present day success of Silicon Valley. There are way too many to enumerate. Just check out the links below. Yes, there's an active PR lobby of Indian IT industry in the US but that also holds true for other countries like UK, Australia, Switzerland, Germany and Japan. PR/lobbying can only take you so far. Indian IT workers are widely recognized for their skills and creativity - whether or not you agree, we are today the LIFE BLOOD of the IT industry.


While it's true that mostly white Americans were the original brains behind the success of Silicon Valley, Indians do come a distant second. In fact, 25% of all start-up ventures in Silicon Valley today happen to be of Indian origin. A lot of Indian VCs are the angel investors fueling the growth aspirations of future entrepreneurs.

You need to understand while a lot of Indians may be mediocre and unintelligent, this country has also produced its fair share of geniuses including Nobel laureates, has an active space program that is currently sending missions to Moon and Mars - not all of us would be dimwits now?

Let me tell you, your average American would not be able to crack the entrance exam of one of the Indian Institutes of Technology. Some of the brightest minds from India congregate in these colleges, and loads of IIT graduates are yearly siphoned off by American corporations even before their 5th or 6th semesters - US is the single largest country fueling brain drain from India - you take our best and brightest just because you can afford to pay them high wages and give 1st world R&D facilities. Fair enough, but then I'd say in return for India losing 60-70% of its brightest minds each year, the US owes us big time and US corporations are obliged to provide a decent living and employment to not-so-bright Indians living in India if they want to continue benefiting from our brightest minds.

Apart from IITs, India has loads of national institutes of technologies and other prestigious engineering colleges which are as difficult to gain admission into, and have a record of producing intelligent graduates that are IN HIGH DEMAND wherever they go.

From Japan to Australia, Germany to South Africa - whenever I told someone that I'm a software professional from India, I was immediately greeted with RESPECT and ADMIRATION. So the stereotype that all Indians are dumb and stupid is simply not true. Well a lot of them may be mediocre but that's a common situation in every nation. Yes, Indians don't do well in Japan and Germany because of the language barrier  but that's changing fast. I've been to Germany - they are CRAZY about Indian IT professionals over there. The only reason I wouldn't want to work in Germany is because the taxes are very high over there. You're hardly able to save anything.

Now coming to another issue raised in this blog: the BAD EXPERIENCES small American businesses have had with hiring Indians....well there's a saying, "if you throw peanuts, you'll get monkeys". Most small businesses based in the US in my experience DO NOT PAY WELL, even by Indian standards. The market has been commoditized to such an extent that it's become IMPOSSIBLE for an intelligent freelancer to make an honest living by selling his skills online.

But really, I'd like to repost an article called "Bad Indian programmers" which truly answers the question as to why so many outsourced Indian workers do not deliver quality. Read it if you have a heart.

Living in India.

Also have lived in India until recently. I remember spending three hours a day commuting (either by car or public transport). That's 15 hours a week.
Public transport used to always be really crowded. The summers saw 45 degrees celsius. Everything had a long queue / wait list, it was hard.

Long story short, the quality of life is really bad. Worse than what my words describe.
If you lived there, you know what I mean.

If I talk to somebody working in India, and he is cheerful, I respect that.
Maybe, just maybe, there could be a correlation between quality of life and quality of work?
Am I in denial about crappy Indian programmers?

Probably not. Having worked around ten years with Indian colleagues, I probably have more stories about bad Indian programmers than you.
On the same note, I probably have more stories about brilliant Indian programmers than you can ever imagine.

Given the economic situation in India since the mid 90's, IT / Software is often the best job option for a young adult in India, and he/she picks up an IT / Software job regardless whether he / she has genuine interest in the field.
That is the reason why many Indian programmers you encounter are demotivated, uninterested and produce less than desired quality of work.

They're not stupid, they're demotivated.

I don't blame the quality of education here. That's a common excuse. If a person is motivated, he'll surpass that constraint.
Now, given that they're indeed demotivated (as I claim they are) why do you choose to outsource to them?
And if you do, isn't it part of your responsibility to keep your team motivated?
Software projects fail.

Even with the best guys, a vast chunk of the software projects don't see the day of light.
That's the nature of software. That's why we hear from (agile || scrum || kanban || the-latest-greatest-process-of-today) gurus selling their methodologies as if it were the silver bullet to solve all problems.

Could it be it wasn't "those Indian guys" who caused your project to fail?
Everybody else's code sucks

Working with legacy code, regardless of how well it is written, will always be a challenge.
Even if you start understanding how it was written, what stakeholders expect from the product changes over time.

Thus legacy code will be inadequate regardless of which timezone it was written in.
Cost vs. quality trade-off

So you want to hire somebody for less than ~ $20 per hour.
And you expect the quality of $200 per hour experienced developer.

Stop having crazy expectations.

@A Balanced View.  Ok so you have talked about problems of Indians and perhaps indirectly are pointing to fact that all white Americans should have sympathy for IT professionals in USA.  Now can you answer,1.IT industry in USA is controlled by South Indians (Telgu(language spoken)-Andhra Pradesh(name of state),Tamil-Tamil Nadu, Kannada-Karnataka, Malayalam-Kerala) in decreasing order of power and fraudulent activities.  Now these people hire only from their own community, open your eyes and see any US corporation, you can count whites on fingers.  So how are Americans suppose to deal with this corruption and nepotism of South Indians in IT industry?.  Please don't tell me the usual rattling that Americans are not good at STEM and there are not enough people to tweak excel or power point and make phone calls.  We all know what south Indians do at client site in USA, they make fools of white gullible Americans who themselves are ripping US stock markets.  You know easy money.  2.  Many H1Bs are getting close to 100k, we both know that Indians can't work with others because of caste, regionalism and general attitude of hate towards others.  So in your opinion what should white Americans do to earn a living in USA, this cheap labor thing has infatuated foolish US CEOs, so can you throw some wisdom on what should whites do to survive?

Addressed to: A Balanced View

The vast heap of your rant is pretty stupid. I am indian, went to high school and university in Canada then moved to the US on a NAFTA visa. Your rant reeks of an entitlement mentality. When you say the following, you forget that No operating system, programming language or middleware has ever come out of india. So much for your IIT geniuses. They can solve well known problems but rarely out of india do you see the level of creativity that the western schools are known for.

Nevertheless, I do believe that Indian people can achieve anything when they're given the support but they have been woefully inadequate in building a society like that. There are too many fault lines along tribal identities.

Lastly, there is nothing great about any group of immigrants who can come to America or the west and work hard, start business and get an education. People do that in Bangladesh, Laos, Pakistan and Nigeria. But only in America do they get a sense of accomplishment. Only in America is there an opportunity to realize their full potential.

So if you've been buying and drinking the kool-aid that the politicians have been selling you - that some how you are a godsend to america, I highly suggest you think of it the other way around. America doesn't owe you or me or anyone, anything. Stealing from her doesn't make it better.

"Let me tell you, your average American would not be able to crack the entrance exam of one of the Indian Institutes of Technology. Some of the brightest minds from India congregate in these colleges, and loads of IIT graduates are yearly siphoned off by American corporations even before their 5th or 6th semesters - US is the single largest country fueling brain drain from India - you take our best and brightest just because you can afford to pay them high wages and give 1st world R&D facilities.

In response to the previous poster I do agree with many of his points. However, the main point is ignored. WE DO NOT NEED H1-B. It's just a corporate subsidy at the expense of the American I.T. worker.
I live in India and it is corrupt shithole. It works, but barely. The power is out half of the time, the water is of such poor quality that everyone has a R.O. unit in their kitchen for drinking and cooking.
The people are rude, selfish and nasty. Rapes abound with the latest atrocity being a four year old girl raped in Delhi. Nice.
Western women all comment on the harassment they endure. None will return here after that treatment.
As for the vaunted IIT I think it made 350-400 on the U.S. News and World Report top 400.
First I think was Stanford followed by Harvard and Princeton, MIT Etc.
Even my Alma Mater Florida Institute of Technology was in the top 100..

What people have to understand about Indians is that they are congenital liars and are corrupt to the core. Living here has taught me that. Not all of course but too many. Doing any business with the Government is a horror show of bribes and delay.
The Indians have exported the bribery model to the U.S. to take over outsourcing/insourcing as well as consulting.
The Indian mindset of delay, obfuscation and outright lying do not fit in with American culture.
They are also the worst racist I've ever met. Once I led a team of developers (maybe eight total). Most were Indian. One guy was a backward cast fellow educated by Christian Missionaries through college. His fellow workers were all Brahmins. They refused even to talk to them. They weren't happy when I told them if that behavior continued I would fire them all.
I became a friend with the persecuted fellow. His mother died and he had to go back to India for a month. His father was out doing Pooja etc. and his best friend was "taking care of the house". He (the best friend) pillaged the home stealing everything.
My friend returned with a broken heart. He said Johnny, I don't want to speak ill of my countrymen but NEVER TRUST THEM.
I had an Indian girlfriend in NYC once for a year from Tamil Nadu, she told me "Johnny don't every trust an Indian!". My wife now is Tibetan and grew up in India and tells me "Johnny, Don't every trust of of them!!". She battles them everyday here. They don't show up for work, try to cheat, have horrible quality work ethics it's very much worse than you can imagine.
One time an Indian guy in a market grabbed my wife's breasts. She instantly thrashed him. I joined the party. It was quite a ruckus with fruits and vegetables going everywhere. Welcome to India.
So, having lived here for years, having worked with them for years it's best to prevent them from coming here except for the best and brightest.
The O-1 Visa will let in an unlimited number of highly talented individuals. The H1-B should be eliminated at once.
If not then a 100 percent tax on salaries should be levied (just like India does).
America should invest in itself and I don't see where using foreign skilled labor does that. It has decimated the country. Of course the Indians don' care. They are in the U.S. to get as much as they can and go back to the Promised Land, Bharat.
There are a few Indians that I know that love the U.S. so much they won't go back for any reason. They refuse. They openly admit what a corrupt sewer the country is and have a serious disdain for their countrymen.
They all have American friends and have integrated fully into American life.

Also, for high rates $80 - $200 per hour don't you think there are plenty of Americans to do the job?
Why use an H1-B for those jobs? There is a reason they are paid less. They are hi-tech coolie scabs come to America to break the high salary monopoly that the American tech worker enjoyed for a long time.
The companies involved have done a good job of manipulating the media into believing the mythical "STEM worker shortage".
Guys like Zuckerberg and Gates don't give a crap about the average guy. In fact both of them got rich off of other peoples work.
First Gates bought MSDOS and IBM licensed it. Until then it was a small company. Afterwards Gates backstabbed IBM by rolling out WINNT after 3.1. Of course IBM had a very good operating system with OS/2. With the success of WIN 3.1, Microsoft decided to back out of their agreement with IBM an market their own OS.
Zuckerberg is nothing but a damn thief. He stole the software from his roommates (they got a 30 million payout because of this).
So, these are the guys telling congress how they will fold if they don't get more scabs.
I don't see the point in bringing in scabs so companies like IBM, Microsoft and Facebook can save money.
The big problem is that American STEM workers are loners for the most part. They should band together and walk off any job that has a scab working there.
I hope Trump gets elected and ditches the whole model.

You are defending the wrong countries ( Iraq , Syria , Afghanistan ) to vent your ire against America.

It is quite possible to have cordial relations with America , Germany , Netherlands , Austria , Russia , China than with the countries you have mentioned.

They are perennially at war with every other non muslim country in this world. Unlike India which decided to remain a dhimmi benefitting through muslim vote bank , America decided to crack the whip. Look at Canada that has become altogether dhimmi.

Yes , Americans have been taken for a ride by greedy corporates. So they have every right to take remedial measures. And America is quite good at trouble shooting. Unlike Indians who only talk & talk worshipping false gods like mk.gandhi the appeaser calling him one 'mahatma' & nehru of congress party.

To H1B eat shit and all other posters...You guys are really so full of it..

Ever heard of Reductio ad absurdum, the logocal appeal to extreme with an aim to have an absurd conclusion. Suggesting that H1B visa holders from India stealing ALL American tech jobs is one such example.

Chew on these facts by PEW Research...the number of tech jobs in the US stood at nearly 4 million in 2012 (Source: www.pewresearch.org/.../TechOccupations.png) Clearly, this infographic does not lie.

The total number of Indians in the US at any given point of time (including the ones on temporary L-1 or H-1B visas) is in the range of 2 million (Source: Indian embassy + NRI sources). Now this figure includes all kinds of Indians, not just IT workers: small business-owners, blue-collar Indian workers, their wives and children. I've been to the US three times: most Indians I met WERE US citizens and hardly any worked in the technology industry. They'd prefer running their own business including family-run motels, donut shops and burger chains, many are taxi drivers. Yes, some of the educated ones like to work in banks and financial institutions and are in wealth-creating industries. By and large, Indian-Americans are a successful demographic in the US. But you have to remember they're all Americans and have zero affiliation to India. In fact, based on my personal experience, Indian-Americans (or "NRIs" as we call them) look down upon Indians from India.

The above demographic I mentioned is 75%-80% of the Indian population in the US. There are many Indians who live and work illegally in the US, somewhere in the range of 200-250 thousand people, mostly people on expired visas. But that's a very small fraction compared to the illegals the US imports from Mexico, Cuba and places like Afghanistan.

Assuming even if ALL the remaining ones in the US were Indian tech workers, the number should be in the range of 200-250 thousand. For the sake of argument, let's double that to 400-500 thousand (which is really a tall stretch - no way there must be half a million Indian IT workers in the US at any point of time, it's impossible.). Even if it were true, if you divide that number by 4 million, the percentage of Indians working in the US high tech sector cannot exceed 10% no matter how you try to present the facts. So much for Indians taking over ALL jobs from Americans.

Yes, this is a sizeable workforce compared to any other nationality in the US at present but Indians haven't exactly taken over ALL TECH jobs from Americans. They're just here in response to business demand and supply.

In other words, all of you're being unreasonably racist against a small section of poor Indians eking out a meager living in America through hard work. Many of them intend to go back to their home country after the project is done.

Americans should really worry about all the Mexican drug cartels that are pouring billions of dollars worth of narcotics into the US. The money laundering schemes of US high net worth individuals e.g. America is the largest offshore funds provider to Channel Islands, Mauritius and other money laundering destinations.

But no, you don't want to pick up fights with the real bullies - Washington DC is full of corrupt politicians and you're perfectly OK with that. There's no fun in going after the big fellas who can make your lives hell. It's always easier to pick on the relatively small number of Indians who can be easily intimidated because of their visa statuses and financial compulsion.
