Well, me and my friends (we publish about microcontroller programming) got sick and tired from the requests from India and Pakistan for help with their projects. The arrogance drips from these mails. They wanted it for free, immediate delivery, with full documentations and source code (tested to run of course).
We don't even look at these 'requests for help' anymore. Especially since an indian engineer, studying in UK, told us that many IED roadside explosives were based on simple microcontrollers like PIC and AVR8. Helping such a poor engineer might as well kill one of our own soldiers..
Lots of dutch companies have their research done in India. For the money. What they produce in results is aweful. Still, these guys are cheap and if you spawn 6 teams, one might come up with a sensible solution.
