What about smaller school? My friend went to American Flyers and he said they're OK. I went to Westwind in Phx before they becomes PanAm. The facilities good, and plenty of planes to train with.
UK? I think they're too expensive, and quite time-consuming. But it'll worth the money if the Indian aviation authority honors UK-CAA license more than FAA's, that you'll be able to convert your license easily. Go ask someone who have been through all the process.
Have you considered about training in Australia or New Zealand?

I'm currently at American Flyers for my PPL. I started the last week of May and shoudl have my license within a week or so. I've been flying twice a day, Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. They can get you through in less than a month if you fly every day, twice a day.
As for profiling, etc, there shouldn't be any problems with you getting your license, here. Do you live in the US or in India? Are you a citizen of the US or India? If you live in India and/or are a citizen of India, why get yoru training in the US? Is a US license valid in India if you are a citizen there? I would think an Indian citizen would have to have an Indian license, just like an American citizen, I would think, would have to have an American licnese... but I don't know.
At any rate, you shouldn't have any problems getting your license. The profiling stuff is mainly on airline flights, and even then, it is usually because of a stupid security guard. There isn't SUPPOSED to be any racial profiling.
