Can't help but agree with Narayanan's comment. I receive newsletters from the NYT and boy, do I look out for Thomas Freidman's articles there? He is really good! :)

After hearing so many good words about Freidman, I have subscribed to NYTimes' email newsletter. Thanks to all for the recommendations!

Latest reports say that tech salaries in India (in Infy, TCS etc) are increasing by 15% every year. Although the East is gaining prominence, the cost advantage may no longer be there.

There is no doubt that the Indian software companies are doing great. And being an ex-employee of Infosys, I can definitely say that the company has state-of-the-art equipment, and also provides a great working atmosphere, and is definitely at par with companies in western countries. We have a great talent pool back home.
There has to be a big thrust from the government and an overall attitude change. (easier said than done I guess) But, I am sure the software companies will continue to do great.

Freidman appeared on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart sometime this past month promoting this book, and said pretty much the same..

Go East, young man :-)

East is east, west is west and the twain shall never meet - Rudyard Kipling.

Yes, India is coming onto its own (shall we say full circle?)

Kaps
So, thats indicating a role-reversal, which would mean pretty soon we should see a large influx of foreigners into India - this is already happenning in small amounts (like the dreamy email forwards which go around every now and then).

Vidya,
We outsourcing some of our work to China is also an indication of that.

Daph,
Thanks for the link. Will watch it right after I am done watching Chandrmukhi :-)

Satosphere,
Yes, now I am slowly getting back to normal.
The article is quite thought provoking too, this should slowly lead to a lot of indegeneous startups, that will take the market in the right direction.

Thennavan,
Well Said!
