India ruling the world !!
Reality Check to media :
We told you not to go overboard on Vikram Pandit. You did just that. The country was subject to an interview of his gushing father and whatnot. Now, it appears you are ready to up the celebrations.
We have this headline :
You media types are really testing us, arent you ?
The greatness of America in allowing immigrants like Nooyi and Pandit to have a bright career, the greatness of America in building and maintaining institutions where hard work is rewarded, and finally the greatness of America in not ridiculing the Indian media on its sloganeering such as , “world at India’s feet”.
The corporate promotions of these brilliant Indian-American citizens points to the greatness of that country and maybe even the greatness of these specific private enterprises.
This does not mean all Indians can procure a US/EU Visa at the nearest fair price shop and emulate these people. Sorry to break your hearts, but they have only a very limited appeal as role models for your average Arun Kumar of 10 Std B Section.
The world is laughing at us when you print headines such as “ruling the world”.
They are just too polite to laugh to our faces.
