Year 2020: India

Place : Google, USA
(Two Americans are Talking)

Currency Conversion Rate : INR 1 Rs = USD $ 50

Tom: Hi Mark, you didn’t come yesterday to office?

Mark: Yeah, I was in Indian Embassy for stamping.

Tom: Oh really, what happened, I heard that nowadays it has become very strict.

Mark: Yeah, but I managed to get it.

Tom: How long it took to get it stamped?

Mark: Oh, it was nasty man, long queue. Bill Gates was standing in front of me and they played with him like anything. That’s why it got delayed. I went there at 2 AM itself and waited and returned by 4 PM .

Tom: Really? In India , it is a matter of an hour to get stamped for USA.

Mark: Yeah, but that is because who in India will be interested in coming to USA man, their economy has been booming.

Tom: So, when are you leaving?

Mark: Anytime, after receiving my tickets from the client in India and you know, I will be getting a chance to fly Air-India. Sort of dream come true.

Tom: How long are you going to stay in India ?

Mark: What do you mean by how long? I will be settled in India , my company has promised me that they will process my Hara Patta ..(green card)

Tom: Really, lucky person man, it is very difficult to get a Hara Patta in India .

Mark: Yeah, that’s why, I am planning to marry an Indian girl there.

Tom: But you can find lots of US girls in Hyderabad , Bangalore and Mumbai.

Mark: But, I prefer Indian girls because they are beautiful and cultured.

Tom: Where did you get the offer, Hyderabad?

Mark: Yeah, salary is good there, but cost of living is quite high, it is Rs. 4000/- for a single room accommodation.

Tom: I see, that’s too much for US people, Rs.1/- =$50/-. Oh God! What about in Bangalore, Mumbai?

Mark: No idea, but it is less than what we have in Hyderabad. It is like the world headquarters of software

Tom: I heard, almost all the Indians are having one personal Robot for help.

Mark: You can get a BMW car for Rs. 5000/-, and a personal Robot for less than Rs.7500/-. But my dream is to purchase Maruti, which costs Rs.20,000/- but has got a lovely design.

Tom: By the way, who is your client?

Mark: Reddy Associates, a pure Indian company, specialising in Computer Software.

Tom: Oh, really, lucky to work in a pure Indian company. They are really intelligent and unlike American Bodyshoppers who have opened their Fly-by-night outfits in India . Indian companies pay you in full even when you are on bench.

My friend Johnny, it seems, used his bench time to visit Bihar, the most liveable place in India , probably world. There you have full freedom and no restrictions. You can do whatever you want! I wonder how that state has perfected that system.

Mark: Yeah man!, you are right. I hope our America also follows their footsteps.

Tom: How are you going to cope with their language?

Mark: Why not? From my school days I have been learning Hindi as my first language here at New York . At the Consulate they tested my proficiency in Hindi and were quite impressed by my cent per cent score in TOHIL i.e. Test of Hindi as International Language.

Tom: So, you are going to have fun there.

Mark: Yeah, I will be travelling in the world’s fastest train, world’s largest theme park, and the famous Gateway of India.

Tom: You know, the PM is scheduled to visit US next year, he may then relax the number of visas.

Mark: That’s true. Last month, Azim Premji visited White House and donated Rs. 30,000/- for infrastructure development at a Silicon Valleyand has promised more if we follow the model of High- Tech City of Bangalore . Bill Gates also got a chance of meeting him. Very lucky person.

Tom: But, Indian government is planning to split Azim Premji’ s Wipro.

Mark: He is a hard worker man, he can build any number of Wipro like this. Every minute he is getting Rs. 1000/-. It seems, if you keep all his money converted as Rs. 100/- notes you can reach Moon.

Tom: OK, Good Luck Mark.

Mark: Same to you Tom. And don’t go to Consulate in a “Kurta Pyjama” because they will think you are too Indianised and may doubt you will never come back and hence your Non-Immigrant Visa may get rejected. But don’t forget to say ” Namaste, aap kaise hai ” to the Visa officer at Window 5. It seems he likes that and will not give you a visa if you don’t greet him that way.

Will this happen?

What do you think?

    Nice! LOL
    Inshallah can happen.
    But too much patriotism is never good 🙂

    Nice to see you Ali, Normally it would be Sara.:)

    It could happen only if Indians worked together as one nation and cancelled the low-cast population idea. The Indians have talent and in time they will outwit Americans and the West.

    Bright days come and go, and every one should have his turn.

    Ah – India, the next liberal fantasy.

    Plagued by its caste’s system anyway.

    Could occur if they get rid of it (which would imply getting rid of lots of traditions too).

    Very interesting story here…I really enjoyed with this.

    Yes, nothing is impossible indeed. ” HOPE NEVER DIES’.

    Indian Americans are the third largest Asian American ethnic group today, followed by Chinese Americans and Filipino American.
    Indians and other Asians, have one of the highest educational qualifications compared to all ethnic groups in the US. Almost 67% of all Indians have a bachelor’s or high degree. Almost 40% of all Indians in the United States have a master’s, doctorate or other professional degree.

    In Microsoft, 7 out of 12 online security researchers are indians.
    Moreover, in microsoft 34% of it’s employees are indians. Similarly,
    Indians in NASA: 36%
    Indians Scientists in US: 12%
    Indian Doctors in US: 38%
    Indians in IBM: 28%
    Indians in Intel: 17%
    Indians in Xerox: 13%

    If they all come back and work for their own country, definitely it can happen…

    Now current scenario is:

    Indians tell their children to study well otherwise they will not get a job in US.
    Americans tell their children to study well otherwise an Indian will grab their job.

      Indians in hell 97% …. 🙂 Here they take the lead 😛

  10. isa December 1, 2012 at 6:39 PM #

    How long was the US in power for?

    First wait till US looses its power (support from Israel)

    Then wait for China to be supported by Israel

    Then wait for Israel to leave China

    Then maybe Israel will use India…

    Until then, don’t get your hopes up.

    But really… I just wanted to say… WHAT THE HELL DID YOU GUYS PUT THIS HERE FOR?!

    A waste of my time…

    \Yes it can happen, if some, I mean some around 10000 be-ghairats in India and Pakistan turn in to ghairatmands then its possible…… Try to understand my words. An Indo-Pak con-federation can surely create such an environment…… But It will also be resisted by international powers and the ruling agents are there in both countries……. Hope, Hope, Hope and Hope that keeps us alive……

  14. Vaseem November 30, 2012 at 10:20 PM #

    No… at least not in 2020 may be in 2220.
    TRUST ME…we surely wont be alive to see that.

    • Ali - Admin December 2, 2012 at 3:36 PM #

      For sure 🙂

  15. Maher Hammouri November 30, 2012 at 8:17 PM #

    All Dears…..
    yes it’s now a joke, but in reality it could this happen… why not. Now U.S.A. ruled the whole world and the cycle of cultures say no one can stay in top forever and the history show us many cultures dominant and then disappeared, and in reality Indian power one of choices who may came after U.S.A,.

    NO chance of this happening in this century

  19. Khalid Saleem November 30, 2012 at 4:29 PM #

    Yes it can happen over period of time… If U.S. stops printing dollar bills and India start printing Rs. bills without any gold reserves.

  20. Rafi November 30, 2012 at 2:18 PM #

    Wow!!! Interesting fun & a series of jokes….

    If masses live below poverty line, it takes centuries for dreams to come true
