The other side of outsourcing

I am embedding the video here. I think this is simply brilliant. If i change fields again, i think i will want to be involved in education. The future of India lies with the kids. I can watch this again and again just for the last 10 - 20 minutes of the show...

wow..I actually watched the whole thing. I would have never have found a video like this because the 45min length would have scared me. Anyway, it was a good documentary...irritating that so many of those "call-centre" kids are starting to get self-absorbed in their attempt to make India a mini-America. So much for big dreams.
And it's interesting how none of the kids at the end had dreams of working in a call-centre!

i'm involved in education and yes - children are our future! it's a shame also sad that still not every child in the world has access to education.

Anju - Wow! I didn't think anybody would watch it just because i put it up. But it is so compelling, i say. Yeah. It is irritating about the whole pseudo culture they are living in and are proud of that!

Choconet - Wow... I envy you... If i change fields, education would be it... Not the main-stream though. Guess there are enough people for that...

I didn't have time to watch the movie tonight, but I will be back tomorrow to watch. It looks interesting. But I agree with you.... our whole future is in our children.I am glad that you want to help and shape the future :)

The Maha... - I have mixed feelings about call centres. Mostly, not so positive. Ok, lots of money and all that, but at what cost? - is my question.

Appletini - You should watch it. It is a great documentary. About helping children - I want to but i am not doing anything in that line of work really.

Nice. thanks for posting. Very timely after I just spent a few days on the phone to our IT outsourced support in India.

And yes, I did notice the "neutralization" of accents while I was on the phone to many people.

I watched it once... I am about to watch it again. 'the world is flat' was the first book I was told to read after I lost my corporate job here in America. And now I will be going to India. Maybe I can help figure out some 'Glocalization' as TL Freidman calls it.
