But why. Here is the thing, someone (US)was giving something(visas) and someone (tcs)took it. I am sorry you were not around at the right time. You might be more talented but someone got lucky. Tcs and infy and other IT firms have created a multi billion dollar industry they haven’t done anything wrong else they’d be fined. I am sure there are tones of tcs infy folks who can be trained to a similar quality work like you or me. So please stop the hate! Also just so that you know until 2013 there was no lottery and people used to get visas until December. Now if there is a lottery that means there is a demand. Hope you develop some different prospective towards our own people. We have had a history of being divided over crappy things don’t forget it :)

Switched from Infosys and have consistently been 1. I don’t think doing MS here makes you smarter than the rest or more entitled. Keep yourself in their situation. I don’t understand how getting to be here is not sufficient to make you happy but is defined by the fact that they get kicked out.

PwC 1 - extremely disgraceful you are. All, I apologize on behalf of my coworker for discriminating against a fellow desi. To give a background, I went to a Top US school for a top 5 program. I consider it as a personal achievement but no where consider it as a means for discriminating against others. In fact, I am proud that my school has taught me to treat everyone equally, that's real education. Whether you are in TCS or any of the Big 4, that hardly matters in the long run, rather how you are as a human deep down, shapes your destiny.

Lol. I can see the real impact of governments now. A single decision can affect thousands of people instantly and send them into panic.

Why good news. Should Just send all TCS people back

EY3 - add cognizant too

Lol nothing to celebrate. We are just one executive order away from being deported or losing or status or sleep. Where is that guy who claimed that being on h1b is same as being on green card

@M2 👏🏻👏🏻🙌🏻

And M2 understand the difference between those that have studied in the US and do premium consulting and banking jobs compared to IT body shops like cognizant and TCS.

Ok didn’t know that. But still doesn’t matter according to me

@p1 the difference is the market they cater. If there were no demand there wouldn’t have been any supply.
