On a brighter note, DTS-Fi Pulsar 300+ (still under development) should be in some time soon in next 1 - 2 years time frame.

You guys sound like salesmen of Indian companies in US. If an indian company exports something to US then what's the big deal? US imports so many things from so many countries. India has always been a leading exporter of Jems, Jewellery, Software services and Textiles to US. If US begins to import some cars, bikes, etc also then it's no big deal.

Sorry to disappoint you all but currently India's (and also many other export dependent nations) export picture looks very bleak. Read below:

Exports decline by 29.2% in May - India Business - Business - The Times of India

To top it all I believe that there are more Indians available in the US than the Chetaks, Bullets, Rickshaws, Mahindras etc.

Even John Deere is taking notice of mahindra's entry into US farm market..
The tractor maker who has John Deere on the run

Anand Mahindra was at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, last year when Robert Lane, chairman of U.S. farm equipment concern Deere & Co., approached him.

"I've been to your dealerships and seen all your manuals," he told Mr. Mahindra, whose Mumbai-based Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. has been taking on the maker of John Deere tractors in the U.S. market.

Well, replied Mr. Mahindra with a laugh, "that's good news and bad news."

The bad news is that the world's biggest tractor maker has put Mahindra & Mahindra in its sights. The good news, both for Mr. Mahindra and India, is that a behemoth like John Deere is worried enough to bother.

Indian manufacturers have never troubled the sleep of executives in the rich world. India is well known for its outsourcing and information technology skills - even, more recently, for the global shopping sprees of its acquisitive billionaires - but its manufacturers are minnows beside the sharks of China, South Korea and Taiwan.

Gradually, that has begun to change.


...

Mr. Mahindra seems proudest of M&M's success against Deere & Co., the Illinois company
founded in 1837 whose green-and-yellow vehicles are a symbol of American industrial might.

"John Deere considers us enemy No. 1," says Mr. Mahindra. "We are the little baby cobra they
have to kill."

M&M has found a niche in the United States with its sturdy, relatively low-horsepower tractors,
popular among hobby farmers and suburban lawn masters who don't need a monster tractor and
like Mahindra's reliability. Sales have grown 25 to 30 per cent over the past four years, putting
Mahindra fourth in the market, inching toward third.

Deere was worried enough that it offered a $1,500 (U.S.) rebate to anyone who would trade in
his or her Mahindra for a John Deere. Mahindra, for its part, tried to lure Deere customers with an
ad showing a pretty blonde riding a Mahindra. "Deere John," read the caption, "I have found
someone new
.
"




Also, after you read the above report, see this slide show. You can see the above ad in one of the slide.

What's wrong in having relationship with blondes. Anyone can have relationship with any race person. That is also globalization.

Why are you so hurt when Indians are progressing by bringing their products in USA markets? GM Crysler are no more because they could not compete in the global market. Your protectionists have failed.
Globalization is not a one way street. I did not see you protest when your cocacola and McDonalds were coming to India and distroying local small businesses in India.
