Do Indian Companies shun diversity?

If not, then why are not as diverse in the countries they operate in? Other global multinational firms tend to use local resources.

Why not Indian firms?

Which Indian companies are you thinking of? Indian consulting firms are generally based on the outsourcing business model, so you won’t see too many non-Indians. However, for non-consulting companies, I think they do hire locals (although top management is generally Indian)

The companies you mention are specifically based on the low cost outsourcing model where Indian FTEs are brought in for short term/contract work. Hiring in the local geography would negate the cost advantage. Hence the low diversity.
Foreign subsidiaries of operating Indian companies such as Mahindra, Tata are generally very diverse as they hire locals.
One of the reasons you may feel this way may be that foreign subsidiaries of Indian companies (other than the consulting companies you mentioned) operate under different names so it is harder to know that they are Indian. For eg, Automobili Pininfarina is wholly owned by Mahindra and has mostly European employees

If you had a tough relationship with your extended family/in law family and someone in that family was undergoing health issues at an old age, would you be able to put the past aside and go visit them every week? Or would it be hard for you … and if it’s hard, would you be bad person for going to see them once in a while in person and checking in on them via text or phone?
