Nonsense about Australia from a Call Centre in India: My comments in A Current Affairs programme of Channel 9.

A call centre in Delhi was reported to be using offensive description for Australia & Australians, while training Call centre workers. See the report in Sunday Telegraph  newspaper.  http://t.co/g0hvK7C  It has created quite a bit of furore which you can see from the comments section.
 
A Current Affairs [ACA] programme of Channel 9 Australia covered it too. It is here.
 
Aussies a bunch of backward drunks’ http://t.co/QrNLsw4  My comments are in this coverage from ACA.
 
The training of BPO workers, depicting Australians poorly is incorrect, offensive and objectionable. I do not agree with these ill-informed and uneducated comments.
 
We, Indian Australians, are Australians too. Australians of any heritage are neither dumb nor backward. Contrary to the claims from this Call Centre in New Delhi, people in Australia do not “drink constantly”. Australia is not a racist country either. There are racist people everywhere in the world. Neither Australia nor India is an exception. Fortunately, they are a small minority.  Australia’s rules and regulations are not guided by race, religion or gender. Instead, Australia is a progressive and successful multicultural country.
