Sir you know better they will never treat fellow desis as humans. This will go on forever. Except for few exceptions most desi companies are like this.

In spite of this treatment we will not leave USA. We will suffer and stay here. Even Non-Desi companies are like this.

Thanks all of you for your comments.

Desi companies for most part ( as far as I know ) are like that. That doesn't mean..other companies are ok. All the companies have their own ups and downs.

Anon Last - About suffering...and living here..I bet you'll have the same problems whereever you go !
