Millions of Indians regularly visit temples and religious sites to pray and seek divine help in fulfilling their wishes.

This 150-year-old Sikh gurdwara (temple) in Talhan village in the northern Indian state of Punjab is the go-to place for thousands of Sikhs wanting to travel out of India.

Many believe that praying at the Shaheed Baba Nihal Singh gurdwara will improve their chances of securing a visa.

  1. Majority of the Indian people are not really patriotic and don’t really like their country. If you offer them US citizenship, under the condition that they may not spend more than 6 months in India in any 2 year period or so, then would most gladly accept it. Only some of them want to go back to India because they miss home or want to contribute there. There are others also who want to go back, but only after saving plenty of $$$ and getting lot of job experience, so that they can have a US like lifestyle. I think that most of them won’t admit it openly that as much as they love their country, they don’t want to live there, at least not when they are young.

  2. Hi

    You are doing an amazing job for the software community through this site! I want to bring attention to something far more dangerous than H1b visa. It’s the L1 visa. Check this link I found online,
    http://frontsimple.com/posts/H1b-visa-vs-L1-visa-comparison/. It’s an eye opener.

    L visa is already importing more workers than H1 does and no one talks about it. It’s almost exclusively used by the outsourcing companies.
    Compared to H1b visa, L1 has
    no annual limits,
    no minimum pay,
    dependents allowed to work
    and other fantastic benefits.

    The problem is, media brings no awareness about L1 at all. If H1b is made stricter, outsourcers will continue unaffected because they will just shift to more L1s.
    Could you please share the above link and the information in your blog and help bring attention to this important topic.

    Once again, you are doing an amazing job for the community! Thank you for that.
