Thanks, Fiona. I was thinking along those lines too but couldn't sum up my thoughts so succinctly. Will India want to take back people to India who were at the very least trying to escape the discrimination (in employment, health care, education etc) they were experiencing in India? It couldn't be true, could it, that the whole deal was sealed by signed cricket bats?
