immigrant keralite information

jan 26tth, 2008

a new study by zacharia and irudaya rajan of the center for development studies, trivandrum, suggests:

1. the number of out-migrants from kerala to the arab world has leveled off
2. 75% of mohammedan families in kerala have at least one person in the middle east; in contrast, only 25% of hindu families do. (that's the result of those illegal ads that say "only mohammedans and christists need apply")

and other interesting data. i read a short article in the eco times online about it, sorry didn't save the URL
