A revelation

Have you ever had a random thought, that turns out to be a sort of a "revelation"? While arguing with my roommate about something (we do that a lot !!!), I just happened to say that psychologically Indians perceive Indian companies as an individuals. For example: Infosys and Narayan Murthy are almost synonymous in India but when we think of an American company, its always as separate entity and has no personal attachment. Obviously, with a few exceptions like waltons = walmart.

Why is that so?
