Globalization Entertainment Inc.

Some naive people on this planet still think that I have invented globalization, and invented it just that you can get the cheap, low quality goods from China.

No, in fact my Intelligent Design was driven by a much deeper principle:

It is the i\rho{}ny, stupid!

Ok, I'll try to give you an example in the distant hope that you gain some insight into my divine work.

Most larger companies have outsourced all their helpdesk and call center setups to India. Together with proper telecommunications that industry there has been booming for quite a while. And becoming the super-supervisor in a call center with 30000 employees is now the dream job for every second student.

Sure, it may not be after everyone's taste to converse with a talking machine with Indian accent:

  • "Oh, how are you today, respected Sir?"
  • "Isn't it a wonderful day? And wouldn't your life be even more fulfilled if you would switch to another long-distance carrier?"

Regardless or maybe because of their I am so indifferently polite that I could not care less attitude Australians actually resent this. But because of the offered politeness they are reluctant to become impolite themselves.

So this is irony #1.

Of course in my master plan I have foreseen the reaction of the Indian call center employees to connect more with their Australian customers:

They learn to speak English with Australian accent.

Given that Australians only use two vowels, the ouuuuuuuuuuuuu for males and the oiiiiiiiii for females, all this results in an interesting linguistic mix.

This is irony #2.

Now, not all call centers are actually in India. Some are still in Australia and unsurprisingly call center jobs here are tough. The poor helldesk drones are not treated politely (just to put that politely) and in order to be not treated as %%%%, they do the obvious thing:

They learn to speak English with Indian accent.

We arrived at irony #3.

Told ya, globalization entertainment works. Trust your intelligent designer.

I have worked in an international call center in India, where we taught to speak in the Australian accent, with much ease, it looked difficult initially but afterwards, we all candidate succeeded.

Re: I have worked in an

Yes, once one as learned how to pronounce English properly (as Indian people do), reducing the number of vowels is not that hard.

Otherwise, excellent spam.

Stop praising the qualities

Stop praising the qualities of the people of a particular person or a region. It is a true fact that human mind has got the tendency to transform itself in to any kind of situation learning any kind of language. It is a noted fact that, In India, english is more popular as Hinglish, (hindi + english), which is also true for Philippines.
One should stick to the ground realities of a language system and respect its originality.
