A Tale of Two Countries – in Need of Each Other

Future Start

May 19, 2021:  This week half of California’s largest metro areas are in the State’s least restrictive Yellow Tier. And, in Orange County, 40% of the residents are fully vaccinated, and 91% have had at least one shot. Little wonder California’s Governor Newsom believes we’re less than a month away from “fully reopening,” on June 15th – as our “surges” appear to be behind us.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the globe, India’s population of 1.4 Billion is suffering from a massive COVID surge that’s crippling not only the largest democracy on the planet, but America’s “back office.” With India’s colonial roots, about 130 million Indians speak English as their first, second, or third language; and the country’s IT workforce accounts for nearly four and a half million employees, according to Wikipedia – not including the nearly 80,000 Indian ex-pats currently working in the U.S. on H-1B visas for the largest Indian IT companies – like Infosys, Wipro, and Tata – plus the millions more who are working for over 2000 Business Process Outsourcing, IT, and Call Center companies, in India – on behalf of Americans, including 130,000 working for IBM alone.
