According to Gallup, 5% of Indian adults would like to leave the country. That's about 50 million people. Obviously, that's beyond the level that the tolerant English-speaking countries are willing to absorb.
So a large number of South Asians work as laborers with few rights in Middle Eastern countries.
I don't remember this all perfectly so correct me on parts I had trivial mistakes in and ridicule me for it, I would really appreciate it.
Unfortunately, I'd say the model minority myth has hurt Asian-Americans more than it has helped them. Yes, Asian Americans are the highest earning group in America, but there's also a ton of income inequality in Asian communities. I've met as many South Asian cashiers, gas station workers, taxi drivers, etc. as I have doctors and engineers (for the record, I'm a Bangladeshi-American so I'm familiar with these communities). Also, as we saw recently in Atlanta and Indianapolis, Asians face plenty of violence and hate...
P.S. If you think Indians aren't capable of religious fanaticism, look up "Vigilante Cow Killings" or "Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh," or even just pay attention to the news. I will admit though that our food is pretty good :)
Here's one 50-word English sample from the test, in all its awesomeness: "If the land is ploughed when wet the furrows may, and in all probability will, wear a more finished appearance, and will be more pleasant to the eye, but land so ploughed will be more inclined to become set or baked, and when in this state will not produce a maximum yield."
That being said, even though the source article says 800,000, another Wikipedia article says 35,000. I've found the 35,000 used in other articles on the internet as well. Are you sure the 800,000 number is accurate? Seems like it might be a bit exaggerated (but then I again, I could be wrong).
