Jayanth: I've come to lament the factory like nature of IT in India. People
learn extremely minimal subset of specialized skills. I've had chaps who
can't see beyond .NET or Java very simply because these are industry idioms.
I tell them stuff about perl, python or ruby and I get back "but those are
scripting languages".

Just a slightly unrelated question here.......doesn't the industry follow
.NET and Java more than Python/Perl as well? (I've heard this said by
several people in the States as well.) So maybe a change in the industry
mindset would help..

(Note, I haven't had *any *industry experience whatsoever, the thing about
.NET/Java  being more prevalent is based on second-hand knowledge. I myself
use Python as a language for scientific purposes)
