Dear America, India Called and She Wants Her Economy Back

An ironic fact is that the Republicans, of which Trump is no excuse, actually believe that  immigrants are a liability to America. If the current trend of neglecting the employees in America who are Indian citizens or Indian by origin continues, then clearly the American economy would collapse. It is surprising that Trump is actually a well established American economist considering that the American sensex dropped soon after he was elected. I'm not very surprised. Why are you? If the American rednecks actually do want to work for a living, we don't really need their jobs. Let's watch them do some substantial labor.

If the current Prime Minister of India, Modi, would like to pull yet another stunt to rescue India from the neck deep quicksand our former administrators plunged her into, let him first un-peg our economy from that of America's. Because I would not be surprised if the latter collapses sooner than later. Would you? Why don't we make at least India an Indian labour friendly country, for once.

Caste discrimination in our country has a side towards which we all turn a blind eye. Those who are labelled as 'open category' (which merely means that they are not considered for caste based reservations in educational institutions and government jobs), find refuge in foreign countries whose racism is relatively saner. What we call a 'brain drain' is hence no surprise and yet people merely complain. If we truly decide to declare caste to be but a word, we would cease to allow it on official documents and election speeches. Indian economy will flourish when the brain drain ceases.

If America would pay a bit more attention to the Indian employees who labor to keep her economy on the top of the ranks and even on the charts, to begin with, even half as much as she does on which country's economy to invade next by continuously improved military strategies and equipment, then her economy would flourish and actually be fed, to begin with.

It is time for Indian to wake up to a world within her and America to wake up to a world outside. Caste discrimination and racism will not feed men for long. Wake up India! Wake up America! It's not too late, yet.
