    There are also many Indians applying to the Advanced Perl Group on LinkedIn, but I have no way to evaluate them and they apparently don't connect with anyone already in the group. I'd like to find ways to extend our network of trust into India.

    Here is some data[1] from perl.com sometime back.
    I came back to India from the US last year and am working on my own startup and we are a perl shop in bangalore, we are a five member team and Looking for perl programmers to join our team.

    I have been attending a few tech meetups and conferences in bangalore and have interviewed a lot of candidates for my company and in the end I decided to hire programmers who did not know perl and train them since I could not find any one who knew something beyond baby perl.

    I wonder if anyone is interested in applying for a TPF grant to attend some big conferences in India and evangelize for Perl? It would be great if we could increase the Indian representation (even get a speaker or two?) at the next YAPC::Asia.

    If someone is considering India, he/she might as well consider China, Philippines, and Indonesia (or Malaysia and Thailand to a lesser extent).

    As someone who stays in Indonesia, I can say that there is a great deal of energy and interest for open source here, but Perl's presence is almost non-existent. There's a lot of opportunity.

    I mostly agree with @kiran on the situation with Perl in India. I feel that its important to find ways for developers in India to be more social and get them to contribute
