I encourage Indian entrepreneurs experienced in the IT outsourcing industry, and alarmed by my Death of Indian Outsourcing piece to read Sudhakar Ram’s Wave 3 of Indian Outsourcing. Other related pieces on the topic are: India’s Labor Arbitrage Strategy, Indian IT: The Next 8 Years, and Silicon Valley’s Unknown Indian.
Also, here are my related Forbes columns on the topic.
And finally, here is my Open Letter to IIT Students written in response to a student’s email from IIT Kharagpur, in which I request students to start looking outside IT for entrepreneurial opportunities. As examples, I would like to cite the story of ERI, a water desalination company that is about to go public soon, and SunPower, a solar energy company that has had a successful run in the public market. I want to also highlight a different style of entrepreneurship that comes from Harish Hande, CEO of SELCO, bringing solar electricity to the poor.
As always, comments and discussions are very welcome.

We might be considered a big IT power, but it is highly embarassing — to say the least — to hear our government servers being hacked time and again by Chinese hackers. It could be a direct effect of security
contracts being given out to “favoured” parties?
I didn’t want to post personal thoughts and opinions here. But here’s what I think
I think the point is simple – think different, innovate, do something other than IT services where main selling point still is the lower costs…
Indian outsourcing has some mature players .. and don’t think they would fall so easily.
besides, didn’t get your point in the post 😕
Ok. So what’s your point 🙂
