If some one really want to look on jobs based on language expertise.
1) Are India Inc hiring fresher with Perl expertise or Python expertise.
2) Is language is stable/mature
3) Easy to learn and build applications.
4) Demand and supply Gap
and many more......
I can say, Companies are hiring fresher with Python knowledge. Some of Pycon
India Sponsors are hiring Python guys.
Python may not give you *more* job opportunity, but it will give you one of
the* best* job opportunity.
