|Incompetent Report on Incompetent Indians|| |
| I can't begin to list the flaws in the research and report filed by Satish Jacob in this ABC News Story on Stortage of Skilled Workers in India (link to ABC News).|
First, he skims off commonly available jokes on Indian English (example: "As I am marrying my daughter...") as something he encountered during his research (proof).
His estimate that one out of seven knowledge workers in India are foreign, seems unbelievable (per article, there are 350,000 such workers of whom 50,000 are foreigners).
At one point in the story, he suggests that since Indian's don't have adequate European language skills, they would have to be filled by American workers -- as if American workers have skills in non-English European languages.
Finally he suggests that American and British workers should move to India where "... their English and their accents will be an asset.".
A very incompetent report, I must say.
