Q.

According to THE HINDU on Sunday, a British call center forces Indians to change their names to English sounding names.

While it comes off at racism on first sight, what do you make of it when you find out the owners of this specific call center firm were Indians themselves?

Its not racism. Its a capitalistic decision. And i dont think they were told to change their names. They were only told to lie on the phone .

Its not new . many call centers have nick names sounding in english . it cant be called as racisim , as the caller will find it more easier to understand their names.
its something like asking to change your ascent to suit the callers ..
