Yes Java is Popular in India. Majority of programmers in India are Java Programers..There is quite competition for java among programers..but as of now opportunities are also equally avaliable. Most of the freshers are also willing to learn Java than anyother Technology.

IT is big time in India! Majority of the economy is fueled by IT hubs almost all over the country. IT has build a complete ecosystem around it. It is directly linked to the economy of India and therefore directly affects even the common man, let alone the IT professionals! With such a huge industry (which is yet to grow to its maximum) it is not a suprise that even if 30-50% of these companies are working on Java projects the total professionals working on Java would be a staggering count that should outweigh the count of Java professionals from non-Indian geographic locations.
I think there is nothing like "popular" here..(and for that matter anywhere!) It is completely driven by market needs! Indian IT industry is an integral part of Global IT so the very basis of this argument is baseless. It depends completely on market needs.

Of course, I don't see Open Source being adopted in India as much as in other countries. If there is a statistics on the number of Open Source contributors, I am sure India will NOT be among the very best even though we are huge in number.
The point is, Python or Ruby may be popular in USA or Germany or Holland but not here in India. So, the argument is not baseless. And I also think that in India technologies are buzzword driven, everyone wants to be on the safer side.

Rohit and Srikanth,
Thank you, this was the type of discussion I think I was looking for.
I think it would be really interesting to graph out the most used technologies in different countries - though this might be difficult given the fluidity of the economy.
Let me know the popularity of Datawarehousing in India and USA

I somewhat agree with your point. But an important point not to be missed is that projects/products are not meant to serve the popular demands of the masses. Also fair amount of the projects are outsourced from outside India so the choice of technology should also be decided by the global market.
Like you mentioned about Ruby and Python being popular in some parts of the world and if that is really true then I am in for a big surprise!
It would be interesting for me as well to know if this is the case.
