I really don't think it's possible to get below them...

PLEASE tell me you don't have a curly perm (often blonde), say "Calm down" and support a foreign owned (football) team...

I know plenty of Indians making good salaries but they all have one thing in common, many years of work experience.

Unfortunately their seems to be a dilution in the MBA recently with so many institutions offering it and the entry requirements being relaxed far too much.
This is true. In the western markets, once you look beyond the Ivy league MBA candidates, the salary level for the rest is sort of in the same range. India has some fantastic business schools such as IIM's and ISB. Candidates from such programs do command a high salary in Dubai but the bottom line is such top notch programs are very few in India and the other MBA programs are not worth talking about.
