And the fact that Lots of your Indian fellows have landed desirable jobs in British and American companies , if anything, testify to the effectivness of your education system.
this is the kind of backhanded compliment one should watch out for! This kind of patronising statement would not be welcome to an European or USAnian... The fact that Indian education system results in a handful of its output getting some 'desirable' jobs in British or Ameican company is something to be ashamed of, if one credited the Indian education entirely with their success. I believe these people of Indian origin made it to desirable jobsalmost entirely on their own merit and against odds and discrimination. Statistically, if there were no discrimination, there would be perhaps more Indians in positions of power in these companies, even if they were educated ANYWHERE in the world. The fact that most of the brightest minds run to join companies rather then start enough on their own in India is the real statement about the Indian education system, which is rife with corruption and designed to service a colonial power.
TedBrent, you think you are being too clever in couching an insult as a compliment? Keep in mind that many Indians can see through this.

Sorry, I have no clue about the author of the essay which you showed it to me. I think he could be another sceptic who thinks that India and its economy will hardly make strides, ahem, unless India starts doing what China has done in the last ten years.
Be honestly, I don't think the poor living in India are content to embrace mercantilism or consumerism like the Chinese.
