Misleading or mistakening October 10, 2006

My jaw dropped when I read this headline from a rediff story. “Indians in US have grown by 50 pc in 5 years”, it said.

And this is actually what the article intends to state :

Immigrants from India in the Washington metropolitan area have grown by an additional 50 per cent over the last five years and foreign-born Indians now rival Koreans as the area’s second most populous group, a media report said on Monday.

I hope that is a mistake rather than eyeball chasing tactics. That apart, the article has some useful information for those who care.
