Nobody is proposing you going to KL. It is almost as expensive as Singapore. If I had a chance, I would go to work in Bermudas instead of anything.

Indians and Chinese surely dont believe in that. Thats why they go and create Little India and Chinatowns whereever they go :P

Infact I would go on to say that if I have to choose between say wroclaw and KL, I would choose KL.

1)More disposable income in KL
2)4 hour cheap flights on air asia to Bangalore
3)Climate and weather is like India
4)Little India and so much of India related stuff in KL

But of course, Bangalore is even better so there is no need to go to KL.

So why have you considered Poland at all? Just in case an offer would be much better? AFAIK Poland is exporting its IT guys all over the world Singapore included, just like India does so unless you are really very good I see no reason why you should get there any position not to mention a work visa.

Another point to Poland:

As you can see, Poland ranks 3rd (it was actually 1st for a few years recently), India - 13th!

Believe me, it is pronounced as 'Vrotslav' with accent on O. X9200 will confirm.

Yes, it is pronounced like Vrotz-love or if you are a correctness nazi than the "l" should pronounced like W in Wyoming: /ˈvrÉ’tswɑËÂ

Honestly you continuing these comparisons is a little silly since all of your criteria is basically "Is it India/same as India/close to India?" Your uber-pro India posts are almost becoming a parody of themselves. Waiting for the 'Water: Does it give you the shits like in India?'

China is #2. How many Computer Genius you know from China?
Personally, I know zero.

The second point, we have lots of guys from India working in IT, much more than any other nationals, we need diversity in order not to discriminate, say, Poles, that is why Poland is the right place to move IT.

I understand you, but I will tell you the true you don't know: even Romania is better than Singapore, and this is because you don't understand beyond figures.
In Romania you may have well off life with personal big house and feel safe, explore great nature and travel without visa to many destinations - not all of these you may have in Singapore or India.

I wonder, do you REALLY think that there are so many Indians in software in Singapore because they are good at it??? I knew you sometimes may be a little bit irrational when agitated, but now you indeed raised my hair!

Nobody gives *beep* about diversity and cross-border discrimination. Simply, Poland has huge IT resources plus, in place, the work ethics and other qualities and is still cheaper than the old good long time developed countries. This is what counts. India was good as long as they were dirty cheap. This is apparently not the case any longer and the quality was always questionable.
For the whole rest, I second Sergiei, I don't know man what you are smoking but judging from the effects it surely must be Singapore illegal.

So you mate claim to be Russian and want to say something about Indians, so tell them.

I know some nice Indians: I work with them and I like them, have no idea what you are talking about. :shock:

I claim to be Ukrainian and I also know some nice Indians. I think, even Wd40, although he is an Indian himself, can tell you that there are droves of Indians in software here not because they are good at it, with some exceptions. I'll give you a hint: Inosys, Accenture, Cognizant, …

You sound irrational. To be here you don't need to be good in something, you just need to be hired by your friends: those who want to work with you.

Otherwise, why do you need to work with guys you don't want?

x9200, Sergei82

Guys, both of you have ridiculous communication skills.
Who on earth need your rocket science coding skills. Think about it. :P
