Obama gets cheers from Bangalore techies

By : |November 5, 2008 0

BANGALORE, INDIA: As Democrat Barack Obama has created history in the US Presidential elections by becoming the first Black to take control of the White House, this techie group from Bangalore would be more than happy, as their campaign has bore result.

These Bangalore techies, who had formed Barack Obama Bangalore Fan Club, were probably more enthusiastic than the American youth and they made all attempts possible on their part to fetch vote for the youth icon in his run-up for the most powerful post in the US.

Apart from calling up, SMSing and emailing friends and relatives in the US to vote for the Democrat, the club members also collected more than US$4000 from their circles, which they contributed to the election fund of Obama.

They had even organized rallies in the Indian Silicon Valley, carrying placards supporting Obama and explaining why the US as well as India need Obama in the White House.

The fan club members say they got the money for the election fund from several quarters voluntarily. And they believe that the young Democrat could bring a positive change.

But it was Obama only who had played the anti-outsourcing card to woo the American youth in a recent electoral speech.

Will the fan club be able to make him retract from the announcement?

After all the statement had caused the Indian IT sector to press the panic button, as majority of outsourcing works from the US are shipped to India.

At this moment of history, some perennial questions arise.

Will the new President be able to help revive the nose-diving American economy? Will India, especially the IT sector, have to face the heat of the anti-outsourcing card played by Obama to win over the jobless youth of America?
