Indian Feelings on Bush's Win

Many people in the world's largest democracy are upset about the Bush win.
George Bush has pipped John Kerry to the post of US Prez. We don't want to get into the realpolitik of it all, but Indians at large aren't certainly happy with what has happened to the Candidate-with-his-heart-in-the-right-place, John Kerry!

Says fashion designer Tarun Tahiliani, who has just opened a designer mall in the upmarket Defence Colony, "I am disappointed. I was all for Kerry's win. I think Bush was a very retarded President. Have you watched the film, Fahrenheit 9/11 ? It has a lot to say about Prez Bush", said Tahiliani.
However, those in the tech industry are happy that outsourcing will continue under the Bush administration.
The Indian IT industry Thursday expressed delight at US President George W Bush's re-election, hoping he would continue to be a proponent of free trade and outsourcing.

"The US is a powerhouse of the global economy and the Indian IT industry is delighted in being a partner to US corporations, helping to make them more competitive," India's National Association for Software and Service Companies (NASSCOM) president Kiran Karnik said in a statement.
I guess those of us who voted for Kerry should move to India.
