Why 1 million Indians Escape from India every year?

A Zillion reasons to escape from India

Why 1 million Indians Escape from India every year?

Any crackdown on illegal immigrants abroad or restricting quotas to Indians are a major concern to India’s politicians. The latest statistics from US Department of Homeland Security shows that the numbers of Indian illegal migrants jumped 125% since 2000! Ever wondered why Indians migrate to another countries but no one comes to India for a living?

Indian-Americans in US, lobby for more visas for Indians. They do not give a darn about the Americans being displaced. They also lobby for the outsourcing of more jobs to India. They see this country nothing more than a job bank for them and their fellow Indians.
Go volunteer for a day – anywhere and tell me how many Indian-Americans are helping out. They have one of the highest incomes in the country and yet I have never heard of them donating. I don’t see their names on any museums, hospitals, schools, child welfare organizations.

Your article is a good effort to point out the disparities in the behavior of this ethnic group.
