Work more to beat Bangalore

"Obama stressed that Americans should take cue from city students who are racing ahead quite fast"
Work harder than kids in Bangalore in order to beat them, is US President Barack Obama's latest message to American students.
The President stressed on the fact that students in Bangalore are racing ahead. Academicians in the city agree but say Indians on the whole are wired to work hard compared to Americans.
"At a time when other countries are competing with us like never before, when students around the world in Beijing, China, or Bangalore, India, are working harder than ever, and doing better than ever, your success in school is not just going to determine your success, it's going to determine America's success in the 21st century," Obama had reportedly said.
MN Sreehari, who teaches civil engineering at post-graduate level at RV College of Engineering, said, "Generally, Indians are very sincere and hardworking while Americans enjoy their days off and do better when they work in teams.
Indians, on the other hand, do better individually." He added, "But Indians working abroad are doing better in life, I worry about outsourcing becoming a bigger problem."
Shweta Sastri, executive director, Canadian International School, said, "I think hard work is ingrained into our mentality.
Indians, on the whole, face more competition unlike American kids. I believe that it is more about the mindset."
Professor Thimappah, a psychologist and former VC of Bangalore University, said, "It is gratifying to know President Obama thinks that, but I believe it's a little more than hard work.
Americans have more money, when they need something they just call for it. So they are intellectually lazy."

US President made this remark to motivate the students in his country, which does not mean we are at the top of the world. Competing is good because it will help to get better result. Hopefully we will have professionals equal to Americans in quality and quantity that is the requirement to go ahead.
