It is nice to see a few South Asians in the list.
Although South Asia is among the poorest regions in the world, there are a lot
of hardworking and talented people here. Now since there is a possibility of

increasing the number of H1B Visas to 1,15,000 from the current quota of 65,000
,
more Indians will be in the list after 10 years, hopefully.
