Number of Pakistanis, Sri Lankans and Iranins have been going down because it is very very difficult to get visas for these nationalities (along with Bangladeshis). However, only visa for Indians are comparatively easier to get.
Also, India is doing better than most of the South East Asian countries. Still we need to do better. Unfortunately, there are people who will take every opportunity to malign our country. Wonder why those people do not go back and try to improve the conditions there!
God bless India. Jai Hind

Very logical and intelligent analysis that you can only make!!??. But could it also mean Indians are becoming more competitive than ever and others cannot compete. Or, it could also mean Kuwait is preferring Indians over anybody else. whether berozgaar has increased or not, one can be sure only when we know how many have come in the previous 5 years.

Don''t bring personal prejudice into everything. Regards

This clearly shows how bad is economic situation in India.
Pakistanis, Sri Lankans & Iranians are going back to their respective countries, whereas bhooke-nange Gau-Rakshaks are coming here for menial jobs .
