    Honestly, I don't really care. They're all (or mostly) americans, so what difference does the national origin make? The statistics look impressive, though.

    well...i don't really care about their race, as long as they actually work and do their jobs well. "Americans" as i see it, are just people who live here, and contribute to society in a positive way. Are you sure those facts are right? I've never met an Indian doctor...then again the last tech support person I talked to was Indian...and he did help me with my problem...thinking about that, they must have been smart enough and hard-working enough to earn money to get to the U.S., so I don't find those facts surprising

    Indian from India, or Native American? Either way, I don't care. We're a country full of immigrants - it's good if the smart immigrants from around the world come here - reduces the percentage of stupid people.
    Away.

    I have seen Indians in many different areas. I trust them as I'd trust any other educated person. My only problem is that the accent can sometimes be tough to understand. However, if I spoke your language vasanth, my accent might be tough to understand.

    well thank you all.. no hard feelings...

    I just wanted to know how Americans feel.. Because i though that they will hate outsiders since some people might think that jobs are being taken away by these people and i had some situation where i was made to feel bad about it .. any way looks like the majority dont care execpt a few..

    I'm proud to say that I'm an Indian .
    I gave my 12th exams this march and will most probably take up IT engineering.
    I've no plans of living in any foreign country till now,the IT scenario,I've heard is down in U.S. and other developed countries(atleast I've heard so),but IT is hot as never before in India.
    And of course,Vasanth,thanks a lot for the advice u gave me about the querry I'd asked u.You gave me the exact info. I needed,whether they teach pointers,refrences etc. or not. Thnx.

    Where did you get these numbers from?

    And because India has a very large population, and many Indains settle in foreign countries, it's reasonabe to have many Indians in the IT field or any other field...

    Another thing that I've noticed is, people like to employ Indians because ( in general ) they are good employees, since they don't ask for high salaries, they do not complain about working hours, etc... But they also work hard...

    But I'm not very sure about the numbers you gave, so it would be great to mention the source...

    [edit]
    Are you trying to prove that Indians are better than others in all fields?!

    If Indians where that GOOD, they would've made India a better country!!!

    the only point i see for you posting that is to point out some sort of 'race barrier' in your mind, the post seemed to basically try and say that indians are better than white americnas, is that what you are trying to say. I wander if thje reaction would have been different the other way around?

    Now you can also brag about magically producing insects in your urine.

Whereas owners of cats are compelled to realize that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they draw the conclusion that they are gods."
