Today they are deporting us but double of them are calling back as they know without expriates they cannot survive and expriates knows that they cannot survive without them. so this is reciprocal business. You deport say 1000 and bring back 2000. ,

Indians are the largest expats community in India which is close to 950 k. Sheer numbers make not much sense. I am sure Indians are way better than other nationalities in this respect.
