A lot of students from India are active in many of the mailing lists related to Free Software, but we fail to see their names once they cease to become students. One of the things that anyone need to have to contribute to Free Software projects (Yeah, I don't like the word "foss" and the "Other word which starts with O") is a drive to contribute to the community. This is necessary and sufficient condition for any participation in the Free Software projects.
I disagree that no innovation is happening in the Indian Software Industry. Again, generalization based on lesser number of data points is as bad as telling a lie.
