History Of Indian Software

Software professionals from India are an important part of the current wave of immigration to the United States, a wave that Immigration Daily is proud to cover. Many of those who read Immigration Daily have assisted tens if not hundreds of Indian software professionals with their immigration papers, either temporary or permanent. It would thus be of more than passing interest to examine the earliest beginnings of Indian software. We note with pride that the Indian software industry was founded by an American company - IBM - in the 1960s. As the software industry around the globe becomes increasingly integrated, it is clear that the US and India are the two giants that will shape its future for many years to come. To examine therefore the earliest congruence of these two countries in software is a matter of some historical interest. We carry today an article by one of the earliest software professionals in India, now long retired, who writes about the 1960s in Indian software. We hope that this article proves to be of interest to our readers.

Dear Editor:
I wish I could say I was surprised to read the ignorant responses to Immigration Daily's editorial correctly taking Congressman Tancredo to task for shooting off his mouth yet again (8/01/05 ID). How Immigration Daily readers could agree with Mr. Tancredo that destroying the holy sites of a religious -- thus infuriating the entire Muslim population of the globe -- would be a proper response to the actions of a small portion of that population. This would be like bombing the US Capitol to avenge the Kansas City bomber's extreme "Americanism." To track down and punish terrorists, we absolutely must have on our side the huge majority of Muslims who hate extremists as much as we do: moderates who have seen the fundamentalists at work in Afghanistan, Algeria, Egypt (and, since we invaded, in Iraq) know them to be hate-filled zealots. However, moderates will not support us unless they know we are not the enemies of Islam, but of those who want to hijack Islam for political power. Idiots like Mr. Tancredo just feed the extremist PR machine. Thank you for taking a stand on this important issue.
