Dear ajeeb,
You seem to be well versed with our basic tenets - so you will also be aware that the child you are bringing into this world is a child only in material form, but it is an old soul that needs to return to this material world to complete its karmic cycle before being absorbed into brahman. By not having children doen not mean you are sparing the soul from this world, it only means that the sould will be born elsewhere...
However, if your real concern is population control, then thats another issue.
Best of luck with your decision

That claim about repeat business is just a lie from the marketing department to win more business.


Random posts from a discussion forum prove that people on critical projects are mostly newbies. However, facts from the official site of the company is all lies.... I think thats going a bit too far.

Can anyone paste the Joe's original article here?
getting more curious to read it.


Actually you are not missing anything....
I've sent it to you as a pvt msg... not worth wasting everyones bandwidth on it.
Its probably not even worth all the attention its been generating, but its fun to hear the ludicrous and totally tangent arguments Pluta throws out now and again

Joe


Maybe YOU should read your article once again - the only place where AS/400 is mentioned is the email extracts. You have attacked the Indian IT industry in general - NOT just with respect to "your" area AS/400.
"... I haven't been able to find any case studies where outsourcing saved the money it promised to... All I've found so far is anecdotal evidence of budget overruns and missed deadlines.."
You only see what you want to. Time will tell.
And now, as Mark has wisely suggested, its time to take a break...

I just wanted to point out that because nobody counters those comments, it surely seems like it is the mindset of everybody here. For the rest of you to simply accept posts like Ashwini's means that you tacitly agree, and that's where animosity arises.
Joe[/QB]


Just coz no one has said anything about my comments doesn't mean that they agree with everything I say - now thats generalization. In fact, if you take the time to read carefully, you'll see that someone has mentioned the fact that I have not been exactly polite.
Btw Rufus, to clear all doubts, my name IS ashwini mehta and I live n work in Dublin - do u want any more details? I have posted in MD quite a few times before ALWAYS with the name of Ash Mehta (look up the IP address bud before shooting off the mouth) Was always lazy to register till now but I got around to it now coz I wanted to participate in this particular thread.
Oh and Joe, in what way does IT outsourcing have ANYTHING to do with me - ur *poster child*??? No US firm should outsource because you don't like my attitude - like I said, u DO have flawless logic
If you dont like my attitude coz I don't gush over your article, then thats ur problem. If we all go by the same logic, then Eclipse Step by Step would have sales plummeting to zero.
I make personal attacks - well I did take a pot shot at you - BUT people who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones (ref. Telling off Paul coz he is not as *brave* as u for standing up to forum backlash)
And now u may talk to tha hand coz I'm out of this thread.

A lil insight into Pluta's reasoning:
Normal person: .. and that is why we should not go in for massive deforestation, earth need more green!
Joe Pluta: Thank you - u have just proved my point - that all Ducks are green. You are an idiot - I have been right all along. Please apologize to the green ducks, sir! All other ducks are evil. PERIOD.
Now how can anyone argue with such *flawless* logic and clear insight?

And YOU owe an even bigger apology for trashing one of the biggest and best Indian software companies.... somehow can't imagine you doing that.

Joe - IMHO your article was just another (yaaawwwnnn) run off the mill wailing articles that we've seena downpour of in the past several months. Nothing new except that you went one step further to isolate companies and defame them as providing low quality services on the basis on one post you SAY you on some site. In any argument, you pick up a few statements that are totally out-of-context and make another silly argument.... at times i wonder if you enjoy being annoying (ooohhh i feel a moderator edit coming on).
Anyways, I too feel (as has been expressed by another) that all you want to do is generate some excitement for a humdrum yaawwn article by making explosive comments in the middle. I truly hope that you get your sued off for defamation.
Ok this is my last post - I',m off - no more, absolutely the last post then I'm outta here!!! (ooooooooh could not resist

Yeah, I would say you have a decent chance

Ashwini,
I request you to reconsider the emailing part in your mail. It might create problems to the poor fellows who posted the message in the newsgroup. Please consider that. Wipro management can easily find out the persons posted the message. Don't take this article too seriously. You are giving toomuch credit to an article, which it doesn't deserve.


True Sankar, this article does not deserve a second mention, much less a precious 2 pages on MD
But to put out that stuff about particular companies was such a calculated attempt to make the lesser informed go like "Hey! ALL Indian / foreign comapnies must be shabby - I mean 2 alleged emails from a discussion forum must be a true representation of the overall quality of over a million engineers"
I wont send an email to Wipro (aw shucks! ) but I would really be happy if maybe a Wipro employee (I am sure many visit this forum) would pick it up with their internal management in the US - It is not very good if they allow Pluta types to run around blatantly defaming them, is it?
Besides, whats wrong if someone posts a newbie question on a discussion forum - thats wht they are here for. But how you came to the conclusion Joe that becuase ONE person from a comapny of thousands posts a newbie question, it means that "that lots of the programmers in these consulting firms are 'freshers'" - how did you ever come up with such an *informed* conclusion Joe??? (please note that I am dripping with sarcasm here)
Joe : Did you even bother to read the article, Ashwini? The whole article was ABOUT changing government policy
I asked WHY DEGRADE expertise of other countries... Hallmark behaviour of the insecure is to pull down competition.. tch tch

I have not read a more biased and misinformed article in my life. Why take 2 email extracts allegedly written by Wipro employees. If americans are losing jobs to cheaper labour, why dont you jump on the government to change policies, instead of degrading expertise from other countries.
And what makes you think that just because its cheaper its not as good or better? The only reason its cheaper is because of the currency conversion advantage and lower cost of living in India - this in NO WAY indicates lower quality.
I wish I was the CEO of Wipro, I would have definitely sued you silly for this misrepresentation and defamation. In fact I am going to drop them an email as I have loads of extremely talented friends who do work for Wipro.
If you must impose your article onto others, make it informative and not just cheap malicious banter.
