The rest of the world will be plenty glad to never have an Indian-designed or Indian-developed code base ever again, and they'll all be safer for it. Thank you India for improving global information security by ensuring that no Indian residents will ever work in tech to be deployed outside of India ever again.

Usually, everyone in the west keeps polite so as not to hurt anyone's feelings, but there is a near-universal and unspoken understanding that Indian devs are among the least competent on the planet. That should not be surprising, considering the culture valorizes lying and deceit (https://www.brightworkresearch.com/why-indian-culture-lacks-a-concept-of-not-lying/). Here in the west, that doesn't make you a hero, it makes you a charlatan - someone worse than worthless, a drain of the resources around them. Now of course, this doesn't apply to all Indians, but everyone already knows that the competent ones leave the country ASAP and never return.
