lucrative address by President of a powerful country , though no doubt it was a wonderful $ 700 Bn bailout package which I think may help American and thus world economy to recover from serious crisis but for India and other southeast countries it sounded the bell of troubles. It was clearly evident from the speech that they ain't gonna force the company to stop outsourcing but they are gonna tax them more if they are outsourcing the American jobs.
It may not be surprise for many as few days back there was a cease on H1B visas to curb the outsiders getting work permit in America. But declaring it on his address is something which makes it concrete that the aspirants who wants to go to states to find a job and a living are gonna face enormous trouble.It is needed to know that India is the largest recipient of H1B and that may cause furore in coming elections in India as most of the political party will now stand against Indian's new Pro-american policy.
Though Mr. Obama clearly mentioned that big budget Iraq is to be reduced but I doubt it as it was followed by renewing the strength of the American Army by more recruitment in the sector. He also clearly mentioned the concern of ongoing war in Gaza strip and Israel's role.
May be the world is looking for a visionary in him but what I felt he is more like a social reformer than a realist or may be he will be the US president that we always had seen...A man of great power thinking himself as god as the whole speech was a too much good news cloaking the hidden agendas of acquiring more power. Piyush Jindal ..the Louisiana Governer has openly criticized the new reforms, though the reforms sound good for Americans..but I think may be his Indian blood gave him a call that this is high time for him to run for the ultimate power. This only the time will tell. His reaction is awaited.
Let's wait to see what happens next...and pray that God save us and God save the USA...
