US expats in India have to behave themselves or they should go back

The topic is very interseting and my moot point being we as a country have grown leaps and bound....just to set the tone we were a Nation with a teledensity of some 6 phone per 100 a decade or less back and now we are close to 50 per 100 that roughly translates to 500 million mobile subscribers with average 12 to 14 million subscriber additions per month. This has lead to the telecom regulator to even think of finding alternatives from the exisiting 9 digit phone numbering system starting with 9 or 8 as we as a nation are fast approaching to the reality of exhausting unique cell phone numbers within the next 3 years.

Now the IRONY -

This kind of growth has also brought about quite a bit of international jealousy as i may think or say so. The modern day world which is fast paced and shrinking like anything has brought about a vast majority of International expatriates (I am only referring to Westerners expecially people from the USA) into india. The sad part based on my experience is that they just cannot learn to adjust. But the fact of the matter is that these so called expatriates are in india for nothing but pure business and for the fact that world indeed has moved EAST from WEST. If these so called expatriates have to make a good career they have to be in this part of the world especially India and China. But the expats seem to be culturally disoriented. It is a basic etiquette to respect the local culture wherever or whetever it is and mutually learn to cohabitate. i have never seen so much of american jealously even in britishers who come to India (at least they have some premise to feel in their minds some kind of superiority having almost successfully ruled us for well over 3 centuries. I feel these US workers who have come here to work to be a bunch of morons who really think low about us and show lack of respect. My question these guys is - why do you compromise your so called ego, morally high identity and work in India? we are a nation of billion plus people who is in a midst of positive transition, where we find some 200 million poor people finding hope to be part of a progressive middle class revolution and adding more to the already burgeoning 400 million middle class.
I think it is high time that we tell these so caalled westerners that you are not welcome and please mond your business and stay in your wonderland. I also will like to comment upon some of our Indian brothers and sisters who feel so privileged to serve that extra mile to them. it is not that nobody is unwelcome to india but anybody coming here need to know just one thing that they better respect our culture, nation or they can simply leave.
