  1. Go back to India

    For every story like this, I guaran-damn-tee you I can find 10 more from American families who have gone through the same tragedy, except theirs was caused by them losing jobs to cheap imported Indian labor and thus were left with no means to provide for their family.

  2. He was a hard worker and lived life by the mottos ‘aim for stupidity and failure will follow’, ‘aim for green cards and heart attack will follow’, ‘aim for dollar dreams and pot belly will follow’, ‘aim for visa scams and arrest will follow’, ‘aim for job stealing and illnesses will follow’, ‘aim for happiness and death will follow’. This one had it coming no doubt about it. How desperate can anyone get, there has to be a limit.

    • Logical indian

      You are a moron! Not everyone who goes abroad is going there simply to earn dollars. Some people also go so that they can esacape the judge mental Indians like you!!! Everyone has a right to provide for their family, just because you lived in India doesn’t make you any better. In fact you are a shame on humanity, try having some empathy for the deceased instead of your non-sensical rant loser!

      • @LogicalIndian – What an amazing take away from your two lines.
        Where ever we live on this Globe : Be Honest, Be Truthful, Be Courageous. Live in reality.

        U r moron! U lack brains! U lack telepathy! U lack toilets! U will die soon! Ur karma stinks!

  3. Out of status. Return to India for your Indian dream

    • You lack empathy. You will face hell in your life time. Life can change in a day. One day you will realize it. I don’t want to curse you. But Karma works.

      • Ernest Penise Rajendra

        U lack brains! U r moron! U will die soon! Ur karma stinks!

      • Go back to India

        If karma actually worked, then the countless cheap Indian labor who have displaced god knows how many hardworking Americans would all have been deported by now.
