Alex : Hi John, you didn't come yesterday to office?
John : Yeah, I was in Indian Embassy for stamping.
Alex : Oh really, what happened, I heard that nowadays it has become
John : Yeah, but I managed to get it.
Alex : How long it took to get it stamped?
John : 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.
Alex : Really? In India, it is a matter of an hour to get stamped for
John : Yeah, but that is because who in India will be interested in coming
to USA man, their economy has been booming.
Alex : So, when are you leaving?
John : 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
Alex : How long are you going to stay in India?
John : What do you mean by how long. I will be settled in India, my company
has promised me that they will process my Ration Card
Alex : Really, lucky person man, it is very difficult to get a ration
card in India.
John : Yeah, that's why, I am planning to marry an Indian girl there.
Alex : But you can find lots of US girls in Hyderabad, Bangalore and
John : But, I prefer Indian girls because they are beautiful and cultured.
Alex : Where did you get the offer, Bangalore?
John : Yeah, salary is good there, but cost of living is quite high,
it is Rs. 1000/- for a single room accommodation.
Alex : I see, that's too much for US people, Rs. 1/- = $100/-. Oh God!
what about in Chennai, Mumbai?
John : No idea, but it is less than what we have in Hyderabad. It is
like the world headquarters of Software.
Alex : I heard, almost all the Indians are having one personal Robot
John : You can get a BMW car for Rs. 5000/-, and a personal Robot for
less than Rs. 7500/-. But my dream is to purchase Ambassador, which costs
Rs.2,00,000/- but has got a sexy design.
Alex : By the way, who is your client?
John : Patil and Pai Associates, a pure Indian company, specializing
in Embedded Software.
Alex : 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 Paul Allen, it seems, used his bench time
to visit Bihar, the most livable 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.
John : Yeah man, you are right. I hope our America also follows their
Alex : How are you going to cope with their language?
John : 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 percent score in TOHIL i.e.Test
of Hindi as International Language.
Alex : So, you are going to have fun there.
John : Yeah, I will be travelling in the world's fastest train, world's
largest theme park, and the famous Bollywood where you can see actors
like, Hrithik, Govinda and all. Esselworld is also near to
Alex : You know, the PM is scheduled to visit US next year, he may then
relax the number of visas.
John : That's true. Last month, Narayanamurthy visited White House and
donated Rs. 2000/- for infrastructure development at Silicon Valley and
has promised more if we follow the model of
High-Tech City of Hyderabad. Bill Gates also got a chance of meeting him.
Very lucky person.
Alex : But, Indian government is planning to split Narayanamurthy's Infosys.
John : He is a hard worker man, he can build any number of Infosys 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 Pluto.
Alex : OK, Good Luck John.
John : Same to you Alex. 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
5. It seems he likes that and will not give you a visa if you don't greet
him that way.
