Fresh from surviving a murderous attack, a 25-year-old Indian student on Saturday appealed to fellow countrymen aspiring to pursue higher education that they should not travel to Australia.

"My advice to every Indian student now who wants to come to Australia is -- please don't come and there's no life here," said Baljinder Singh, one of the Indian students who was attacked by two youths in Melbourne.
