spreading all over !!
I remember a time when in UK Enoch Powel was claiming Indians were growing at an alarming rate. If me and my Pregnant wife gets a son in UK within one month of our arriving our population grew by 50% in one month and prorating for all Indian population for a few years would show that UK drowning in a sea of Indians. Such statistics frightened the British people then and causing many to inflict harm to Indians. Hopefully we do not spread such exaggerated stories. That the Indian population grows is a sign of not only NZ's own aftitude changing but also the climate in India where educated people think that they would be better off outside India than by residing in India. Corruption, Nepotism, Quotas that do not recognize Merit but which caste or religion you belong to etc have made hardworking Indians to seek prospects outside. With the migration of educated Indians outside India is definitely poorer. So let us not celebrate the growth of Indian population outside but instead concentrate on providing better future for educated Indians within India by eliminating all the forces that keep India backward.
