Is India really the IT Super power?
This year's Google's Code Jam contest, which is a sort of Olympics for programming skills. At the qualifying stage, 17% of the contestants were Indians. By the third round, as the competition intensified, Indians were down to 0.7%.

Although India began with the highest number of participants, just three Indians lasted till round three, compared to 83 Chinese, 77 Russians, 36 Japanese, 25 Americans, 21 Poles, 13 Belarusians, 11 South Koreans etc. In fact, the code Olympics look much like the sports Olympics.
So much for the IT superpower.

The politicians in India have never understood or envisioned anything other than land purchase and sale as the business, forget IT or any other technology. The priority of education expenditure by the Indian government has statistically, even in absolute percentage terms has always reduced across the decades despite huge increase in the population.
When, as a country, there is no pressing need for getting quality education except for the label degrees, can you really expect the creativity to hold any value in the society?
I dont know about the CodeJam participation statistics. But the fact is that the charm of coding is just lost in India, in the favor ...more
