There is a race of different kind but its related to H1B Visa and BMW Cars.

This is one of the article that was created a buzz and lots of comments few years back.

You know how to increase your odds of  getting selected in H1B random lottery. One of the ways is Multiple H1B Visa applications. But, read the comment from Raju.

Comment from Raju

I think all the people in US don’t want the people in India to come to the US and make our dreams come through.

I know that people in the US are rich. When my friends or relatives come to India, I see how much money they have.

They shop in expensive places and buy houses in India like crazy.

Working in India it is impossible to build a future for oneself.

They drive big cars like camry, bmw etc which I cannot dream of driving here.

While you guys are vacationing in Disneyland and Hollywood driving your big cars and living in big houses with big TV and everything, I am struggling here. I am being practical, if you guys cannot understand the gift god has given you by being in the US, it is not my problem.

Here is a short summary of  Raju”s other comments

  • I want to be Rich – I’m applying for H1B Visa
  • I’m submitting for 5 H1B Visa Petitions, Am I being STUPID?
  • I sold my property to Apply for H1B Visa
  • I want to Drive Camry; I’m applying for H1B Visa

What do you think?  Do you think agree with Raju? Would you do something like Raju to go to USA?

While you are thinking about what to reply, enjoy this BWM commercial. One more reason to buy BMW.

    I can show so many native Americans who have never traveled beyond their state. Holidaying comes only at a price. Camry is not free. H1B alone won’t give any of these.

    While statistically the fact with respect to the ability to own big cars in the US as compared to India is true, people who come to the US only with a goal to enjoy the so called “pleasures” of the US will be surely overwhelmed by the responsibilities that they have to undertake to live legitimately in the US. People in the US enjoy benefits because they are tried, tested and proven to be worth all that. If anybody feels holidaying in Disneyland is something the people in US get to do very often, thats again a misconception. I have not heard of one Indian who is leading a luxurious life saving money the way they do in India.

    Please do not apply for an H1B because US looks colorful. Apply if you feel what it takes to do the job of 4 personnel’s equivalent alone (rough estimation as the population of India is 4 times that of US).

      Valid point.

      I’m commenting here after a long freaking time. But I just want to say one thing,
      If you are unworthy in India, don’t have false hopes that you will automatically become worthy in United States. It’s not a land of Dreams as it used to be, it’s a land of competence.
      You are so screwed if you are just daydreaming.

      • Raghuram Sukumar on April 4, 2013 at 9:42 PM

        Umank – where have you been? Hope life is treating you well.

        In USA if you can compete, you grow faster.

      Who says that a H1B worker needs to take huge workload. I have been working in a company which is 100 years old as a full time staff and I don’t see that I have work more than I used to do in India. I am not at one with you at all. I can see a number of India families live a nice, luxurious as they work smartly with honesty. It all depends on us how we wish to achieve our goal and how ethical we are. Thanks
