What is happening in Australia? Racism, hate against Indian community… is it repeat act of ill treatment that shown by some
cricket hero’s earlier?
every citizen in the society now feels shame by knowing and seeing clippings of Australians attacks on Indians.
Why this hate? Is it because of success that Indian students, cricketers, corporates scoring over the whites? Are we heading toward the global harmony or fueling fire o hate? These are the some of the questions bugling over the minds of academicians, thinkers now.
There is always a mad rush at one of the five star hotels in Hyderabad to get in to the exhibition of Australia education  department. The aspiring students, who want to build their career in Australia felt at the time of the admission that they are entering in to the safe place comparatively other western countries.

But One goes through the one of the leading education group in Australia IDP’s website they find the information portraying their country as a safe heaven.
