    The number of Indian students studying in Australia is projected to fall by about 20% in 2010.
    Australia's Tourism Forecasting Committee (TFC) has said the students are choosing to stay away due to a series of attacks in mid-2009.
    Australian police blamed the attacks on opportunistic criminals, but some Indian students see them as racist.
    The drop in the number of Indian students is expected to cost Australia almost $70m (£44m).
    More than 70,000 Indians studied in Australia in 2009. Australia's higher education industry is its third biggest export earner after coal and iron ore.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
