Manish makes a good point. Generally speaking, Indian resumes (meaning for people working in India) differ from US resumes. When many H1Bs came to the US, they created resumes similar to what they did back home. Even without names and locations, its pretty easy to spot which resume is which.
For US resumes, people write a few sentences to a paragraph, or maybe some bullet points, for each job.
For Indian resumes, people write a paragraph or two per project at a particular job. They also tend to list the buzzwords used in the project (e.g. EJB, JDBC, RMI, Swing).
Naturally the latter tend to be longer the the former.
(I'm not commenting on which is better, just pointing out differences.)
