Is it ‘Yes’ or ‘No’?

More than 10 years ago I travelled to India for the first time. I was looking for Indian software companies to work with. With an invitation from an IT company in the city of Indore, I got on a plane. More than 20 hours and 3 stops in between, that’s what you get with those cheaper tickets. Fasten your seatbelts. I was very curious how it would be. After an IT adventure of 4 years in Brazil, with sun, beach, Brazilian temperament and of course hard work, it will probably be very different there. Maybe I should have prepared myself a little better and got to know the country a little better?

“Yes, yes, no problem!”

10 years ago I visited India for the first time. After an IT adventure of 4 years in Brazil I crossed oceans and countries to land in India. What a change. From soccer to cricket and from carnival, with flamboyant dancers, to religious festivals, like Diwali and Holi. And… from a country with 200 million people to the second world nation with a population of about 1.3 billion people. Besides many differences, they have a common history by winning the Miss Universe elections twice.

Purpose of my trip: finding Indian programmers for my internet projects. Through Google I came into contact with an IT company in Indore. I was invited, packed my bags and took the plane. India, here I come!
