Dear Sathi
Today just being an SCJP is not enough to get a Java Job though it is the fundamental requirement .Java has matured more on the Server Side and it is being used more as a middle ware .So you have to try to learn the Server Side Java like JSP ,EJB,JAVA -XML Programming ,Design Patterns etc i.e the entire J2EE Platform to be successful in getting a proper job in Java .Instead of waiting for jobs or blaming others try to enhance your Java skills .Those who have completed SCJP should try to become Sun Certified Enterprise Java Architect .Try seriously preparing for the Sun Certified Enterprise Java Architect Exam and try to clear it within the next 6 months .You would not only have the acquired skills in the J2EE Platform but would have also made yourself more marketable .This is the only solution for aspiring Java Professionals .Without Knowledge of implementing J2EE Technology do not expect any job offers and the best way to prove your skills in J2EE Technology is to become a Sun Certified Enterprise Java Architect .

Dear Sathi
I do very much appreciate that you do SCJD becofe trying for Sun Certified Architect Exam as you have got more of your fundamentals strengthened .But it would involve spending 6 more months for preparation .So if you have time at your disposal then first attempt SCJD and then Sun Certified Java Architect Exam.This is the best route to enhance your Java Skills and make yourself more qualified and marketable .However please remember that Unless you are a Sun Certified Java Architect you have very little scope for getting proper placements .This is the reality whether you like it or not .
Wishing you all the best in your exams .
Do not loose hope and go step by step in enhancing your Java Skills .

Hi Sathi
Glad that you found my logic acceptable .I am also following the same route i.e SCJD and the SCJA .In Java Ranch there is a separte discussion group for Architect Exams and you will find all the releveant questions about it answered there .Yes you can do the project at home but you would need WinNT for installing the WebServer .But before you worry about implementing the project for SCJA first try to prepare for SCJD Exams and to do the project for it you just need a P.C with WIN95 /WIN98 .The main books to be used for preparing for the SCJD Exams are :
Core Java Vol 1 & Vol 2 by Cay S.Horstmann .
It is first better to finish Sun Java Certification before trying for other Vendor Certifications as Suggested by Sandeep .They are also very useful but you have to approach one at a time .

I can't say that I know the job conditions in your area, but I would think with the experience you have you should be able to get a position as a junior java programmer. I would figure out how to get more "real" experence programming java instead of studying for more certification tests.
