Desperate to save their jobs and facing annihilation in the mid-term elections Democratic politicians have reverted to their familiar abuse of all things foreign. To wit: Democrat Senator Charles E. Schumer's ridiculous branding of leading Indian IT companies like Infosys as 'chop shops'.

So much for the Big Change Obama was going to spread across America.

Obama's "Yes We Can" dying refrain is now being replaced with the specious: "Say No to Bangalore and YES to Buffalo"

Now normally the supremely thin-skinned Indians would get their knickers into a knot over this disrespect and "hurting of feelings" [sic]. But interestingly Business India has not made much noise merely offering up this passive tut-tut:

"Such desperate name-calling only speaks of US angst - since it is up to its armpits in financial alligators and there's nobody to drain the swamp".

The much-bemused Indian man-in-the-street commented:

"Desperate times obviously call for desperate measures. Senator Schumer and his ilk are headed for defeat in the midterm elections so it's the American way to point fingers at others and resort to insulting behavior. They're behaving like our opposition BJP!"

The only thing rising in the US currently is its unemployment rate which is now at 9.5 per cent and there is zero job growth.

Meanwhile India's economy is expected to grow by more than 8 per cent this fiscal year.

India IT companies upped the ante by issuing this tongue-in-cheek statement today:

"We are aware of the dire predicament of our dear American friends. So we are prepared to make this one-time offer. We will pay more than a fair market price to purchase Bangor, Maine and rename it Bang[al]ore Maine. Then there will be no need for Obama to exhort Americans to "Say NO to Bangalore".

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
