    petty damn hard to compare.... one has to take into account both environmental and genetic causes and then put them into context with the location, if that has anything to do with it.

    pretty difficult task if you ask me.

    Bhai my question was - Which ethnic group out of above mentioned have contributed max to India's economy according to you.

    I actually asked for no comparisons on basis of looks/physique.

    Clueless!:fie:

    Though the intent behind this comparison may be good, I don't think its wise to compare any two ethnic groups in this manner! It will only increase these kinds of comparisons between even more groups as India is a land of Diversity.

    Useless thread, ethnic comparisons are stupid and full of stereotypes. We do not allow such discussions on IDF.
