Desi IT cos -> hire and fire in mass. employees = cattle = billable resource. Jhatka-type exits involving a quick meeting and security escort.
MNCs - hire and fire selectively. employees = long term assets. Halal-type exits with compensation paid and
"be on rolls for a few months till you find a job". Its all about maintaining a reputation and requirement for WARN notifications.

OK. finally one person tends to agree on what i said. Though in reality there is no halal vs jhatka comparison, in my experience. The Indian It companies can be the living hell (where one reaches after the halal)

Now can Modiji take a pity on the lower middle class coolies like me and take initiatives to make things better?

Because I am barbarik (a very weak version of barbaric) who is a born loser and prefers to fight for the losing side. I keep swinging ;)

The dirty insights from the "junkyard of Indian IT Industry"
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Coincidentally today on the front page of ToI (BLR edition), there was a news item regarding "Indian IT Industry" and my "Japanese, American and European" godfathers. Since i am in the mood, i will spill the beans on this (with some creative liberty from my side)
Note: I have seen the article on front page of ToI today with my own eyes but can't dig it up by google search!

It seems that a labrador or golden retriever, pupper of a Indian born top executive of SuberDuber India (the great MNC cabwallah) attacked the child of german couple who stayed in the same apartment.

Now here is my analysis of the same incident by utilizing years of work experience with "Top Indian Executives" and my "Japanese, American and European" godfathers from the software industry.

1) The "top indian executives" are generally dalals and they think that they are "running the show". They don't have much idea on technical things or how to keep a dog in good physical and mental health. Since in India, in Indian IT industry the coolies don't have much protection, the indian executives go there and "run the show" in their indian style. Naturally neither coolies nor the "top bosses" have much life. Since they don't have a life, their dogs also don't have a life and the dogs from such families are totally assholes.

2) if a brother from my American or European race had come to India for true-blue MNC work and if he had a dog, he would keep the dog running and give him proper non-veg food; Naturally the dog would be in good mood and would not attack neighbor's child.

3) The "top indian executive" from SuberDuber cab company was notified multiple times by the apartment association, on the psycho behaviour of his dog but he did not pay heed (what is unexpected there ;) )

4) The police did not take immediate action on the suberduber executive. But since the dog bit a child of my European godfathers' race, the police finally took action and the story came on front page of India.

Moral of the story:
Someone a few years back aptly said "This is what happens when a cabwallah gets money". IMO, it's true. One can pretend to be a big guy and hold a designation but culture can't be bought by business or dalali.

Valuation is very high (too high?). But leaving that aside, Postman is a great example of Indians making global products. Unlike Zoho/Freshdesk, Postman is the #1 product in its segment.

PS: We need to simplify laws & taxes so companies don't have to register outside India.

Union folks in KA are crying buckets over lob losses over covid, and hoping to attract IT coolies to their ranks.
What has IT industry and unions go to do with each other. A software co is the pinnacle of capitalist dreams, and it works like one. Anyone who thinks otherwise and expects unions to save their sorry ass if just plain lazy.
