Q.

I am writing to you as an Australian.

I welcome Indian students to my country and, despite some reports to the contrary, so do the vast majority of other Australians.

I deplore the limited number of attacks which have been made on innocent and defenceless Indian students and wish to see the full weight of the law brought down on the (young) miscreants concerned.

We now more than 250, 000 international students in Australia of which over 60,000 come from the Indian sub-continent. These students contribute almost $16 billion dollars, annually, to our national economy.

Good on you Mike - one should not bite the hand that feeds and all that.

Drugs and Drinks - is that what is causing all these problems ?
