The Spam game

How many times have you come across this in your mail as forwards ??

There are 3.22 millions of Indians in USA (15% of population) . YET,
38% of doctors in USA are Indians.
12% scientists in USA are Indians.
36% of NASA scientists are Indians.
34% of Microsoft employees are Indians.
28% of IBM employees are Indians.
17% of INTEL scientists are Indians.
13% of XEROX employees are! Indians.

This is a spam mail which is floating in the internet for quite a long time. There are no solid evidence for these data which is getting passed on. And now the spam as even convinced our Indian Government about the data which is presented.

Our ministry of state for HRD, presented the same data in Rajya Sabha in defense of the Indians and our achievement.

It is the responsibility of the government to validate any information which is being published. How careless are they ?? And these poor politicians are to be blamed for all these.
