Personally, I didn't get the chance to go to University. Instead, I took a four year apprenticeship as an electrician. I am now a VMS sys-admin and couldn't get a job as an electrician even if I wanted to as I haven't passed the "test" invented by our government which substitutes for properly learning a trade.
Getting back to the thread....
I worked in the UAE for 2 years as senior engineer in an IT company. I was the only engineer without a degree, all the rest were Indian.
I found they are much more appreciative of good education than our society, it is almost a given that to get on you must have a degree.
I found Indians hard working and kind people, so Indian bashing is repulsive to me. It's a global job market now, learn to live with it by learning skills that will keep you in a job. Just like the Indians do.
