3 Reasons Why You Should Leave India for Other Countries
Guest Post by Prithvinarayan.
Before I get down to writing the final article, I would like to say two things
To HSB-Thanks for posting the previous articles. I would also totally understand if you decide not to post this final article, given all the heat the previous article has generated. But, I feel I still have something left to say with this final article and I hope you post it if you feel it is relevant to your blog.
To readers-The previous article had attracted a lot of discussion(some digressing from the topic at hand) and a lot of harsh comments from people who didn’t like it. To them I’d like to say, I am not trying to demotivate anyone or to change anyone’s mind.
My effort is to show the the other side of America, the harder side, the one which is seldom discussed or people are too scared to discuss. Time and again people have put India in a poorer light as compared to America and I want to do my bit in providing a balanced view.
Also, some took offense at my language, so this time I will keep that in mind and mellow down my approach and keep it more euphemistic.
Alright, so this final article will discuss 3 main reasons why you guys are leaving India for the US(or other countries) and why these reasons are myths for the most part and dont hold water in todays globalized world. I have seen these reasons in most comments and discussions and I want to address them explicitly. Summarized they are-
- In India the only jobs that engineers graduating from any branch get, are in the IT industry.
- Salaries in the US are a lot higher and a person can earn much more money in a lot less time than he/she can in India.
- India is not a developed country and because of reservations, non-encouraging business atmosphere and society, nobody who is talented, skilled and passionate can fully really realize their potential.
So, these are the reasons why most Indian students are opting for going abroad these days.
Like I said before, these things did apply to India say in the 80’s or the 90s when there was only the public sector, but things in India today have changed. I know many of you will passionately and vehemently disagree, but give me an opportunity to dwell into each of these one by one in more detail.
IT Industry and India
Firstly, this whole thing about India story being only about IT is wrong. Core engineering industry does exist in India.
Do you know that in Bangalore(so called IT hub) there are tons of semiconductor(VLSI) companies?
Along with San Jose and South East Asia, Bangalore also is a global semiconductor hub, and all global players including TI, Intel have IC design work done by engineers here?
I chose this industry as an example because I am an Electronics engineer, who is a part of this industry.
I got into this industry and I do core semiconductor work without getting a MS from US or for that matter anywhere abroad or India.
In-fact I have no masters degree but I did a dedicated IC design course in Bangalore.
I DO NOT do IT work or for that matter any kind of outsourced work. And I am no exception.
There are many people like me who work in core companies all over India and I can vouch for the fact that a majority of them don’t have fancy MS degrees from universities abroad.
This perception about India being just about IT or BPOs is a perception spread by mainstream media and certain American sitcoms, TV shows and movies .
There are core opportunities in India too. Of course, the number of openings in core is not as much as IT, but so is the case in America.
Its a globalized world. Which means that if some rule about some industry applies in America so does it in India.
Core jobs are always niche and finding a core job is harder all over the world as compared to finding an IT services job.
Salary in India
Next about salaries in India. India and America are economically disparate nations.
So when a currency conversion rate is as high as 50 rupees to a dollar, you cant just multiply the salary people get in the US by 50 and compare them to Indian salaries and tell that the American guy or his standard of living is far better.
Its not that simple.
If a guy makes $5000 which is Rs.2,50,000, a month, even his expenses will be in the tune of lakhs.
Tax rates, cost of living, apartment rents, insurance premiums are all insanely high in the US as compared to India.
Simply put, the real buying power might of the US dollar is seen when it is spent in countries which have much lesser currency values than the US dollar(Like India).
So, I agree a person is far richer if he/she earns in dollars and spends in rupees. But if they earn in dollars and spend in dollars?
Well, not so much.
Talents vs Culture
Lastly, about the unending bashing India gets (ironically by Indians) about it not being developed as much as the US and the Indian business environment not being encouraging for a start up.
First of all when we say that India is not as rich as the US, implicitly, we are comparing the Indian and the US GOVERMENTS, not the people.
We are talking about the limitations of the Indian PUBLIC sector as compared to the American one.
Yes, the Indian government and its public sector suck big time.
In the 64 years of Indian independence, the Indian government has done absolutely nothing for India or its people.
If anything, it indeed has impeded development by sticking to a useless reservation system, which has led to a loss of talented Indians to other countries(Read US).
But, if on a global scale India has some sort of standing today, its because of the private sector.
Yes, the private sector even today consists mainly of IT service companies and foreign MNC’s, but it is in our hand, this generations hand, to set up Indian PRODUCT companies.
How many people in this forum who complain about India not having any start ups or quote Mark Zuckerberg as an example, have the chops to stay in India, not runaway to America and start their own companies?
You can if you have the will.
If any, this is the best time to improve India’s private sector.
Don’ depend on the Indian government, it will suck for eternity. But you don’t need the government to start your own companies.
How many companies in the silicon valley in America depended on the American government to help them?
They had the passion and the zeal to think original and indigenous and they set up the silicon valley.
Do draw an American parallel, do you think the American government or its social environment helped Steve Jobs to set up Apple in the 70s?
Banks refused him loans because they didn’t know what a computer was!
If a bunch of Americans could overcome their government’s or their societies inflexibility, to set up the silicon valley, Indians can too.
Basically, the opposition to new ideas and new thinking is there everywhere. Not only in India.
Previous generations of our country decided to either whine about it or move to the US. We can do the same or be different.
Do you agree to 3 reason listed by Prithvinarayan to why people travel to other countries from India?
I don’t agree to the Salary in India being Comparable to Salary in USA.
Trust me man, I’m earning in US Dollars and I know how much my friends and classmates from BE earn in India.
Amount of money that I save after expenses is not something they will be able to save with Indian Salary.
Next – 3 Options After Masters in USA – Job, Studies or Pack Your Bags
There is a lot of BS in the article.
1- Reservation is not killing good students, discrimination & donations are.
2- Startups are killed by the government because of poor regulations. You can run a company by incorporating it in Stripe or other countries better.
3- The rules are unclear in India. The rules are different for everybody.
4- Modi is also a Feku. Nothing good will come. wait for 20 years to see it.
5- Blockchain – The hottest tech is going to be Illegal, if not Illegal then also not clear if it is going to be legal. So is the Hemp & Cannabis Industry.
6- Politicians are Old freaks. They value old values like caste and religion. They are also Uneducated.
7- Kashmir was never a part of India. But we still want it and fight for it. waste resources.
8- Having Insurance or no insurance is almost the same.
9- Law is a family business.
10- No genetic diversity but the highest population.
11- The government will ban anything on religious and traditional values but will not provide a proper ecosystem.
12- Checkout world happiness Index and see where India lies.
13- Brahmanism destroyed India and they don’t have the courtesy to even say sorry.
14- The reason why you work as an outsourced bitch is that you could not make an ecosystem in India. Thanks to piracy and intellectual property drain. You can’t fight it. If devs don’t get paid they will create for some other ecosystem.
15- There is no official language in India. Because they are too egoistic to come to a common ground.
16- You can’t marry with just 2 adults coming to a consensus.
17- The higher you go to study in India the lower your chances of employment become in India. So people leave. There is nothing to do for highly educated people.
18 – The third world war is the war on religion, the war of religions. I think this has begun in India.
You are WRONG about the DOLLAR $ 5000 is Much VALUED in USA than in INDIA…………..CoST of Many thinks like FOOD , ELECTRONIC and RENT are LOT CHEAPER ….Even Comparing to INDIA……..
You can Buy a LUXURY HOUSE for 1,00,000 $ but Her for Rs 1 CRORE You Still have WORST HOUSE with WORST FACILITIES……
Anyone Who Things COST of LIVING in USA is HIGH is a FOOL who COMPARED to INDIA it is STILL CHEAP…..
Even with 50000Rs in INDIA You Wont be able BUY EVERYTHING
He is absolutely right about reservation definitely killing lots of talented people for no apparent reason..
Two reasons to leave India:
1) Constitutional laws are evil and if someone gets scapegoated e.g., marriage/divorce laws for men.
2) Intention of government and politicians is not in favor of public but is in favor of administrative society.
Even the US law favors the woman in case of a divorce. It’s a burning topic. How do you not know?!
Too many Indians wish to quit the country. Here are 10 most common reasons why they want to.
1. Aggressive society
Passive-aggressive in the south; hostile in the north. This upsets people. You can sense it on the roads, in shops, in cinemas, in offices. And definitely in places that sell liquor.
Indians who have spent time even briefly in the West are able to sense the offensive nature of India better. Non-Indians are plain shocked.
Any interaction with Indians can get violent within moments. The aggression is mostly verbal, but just as bad as physical hostility.This makes people want to leave and never return.
2. Unchanging politics
There are six national parties on the Election Commission’s roster, 54 state parties and 1,392 registered unrecognised parties. There are 39 parties with members in the Lok Sabha, 29 in the Rajya Sabha [mostly the same as in the Lok Sabha].
Yet, when you try to reach the parties with a problem, it’s remarkably the same everywhere. They all have a jaded air. They all think they know more. They all jump to it when you’re willing to fund the party.
The narrowness of Indian political parties is like a sledgehammer blow when you actually face it. It drives people away.
3. Anti-everything families
Such attitude is passed down from generations. Families could be anti-women’s progress, anti-Muslim, anti-Christian, anti-Hindu, anti-meat eaters, anti-free thinkers, anti-anything.
The first chance youngsters get in such families, they leave. Mostly on grounds of further study. Few return after they complete their course.
In Andhra Pradesh, for instance, every family with means will boast of people living in the West. Curiously, many of them return to family prejudices when in India.
4. Timid governments
It is astonishing how deeply this affects Indians. The tame nature of Indian governments seems to rob them of self-esteem. It is often the first thing that comes up in conversations with friends and family living outside India.
Governments – barring those of Jawaharlal Nehru and Rajiv Gandhi – have done so little in India that even minor routine administrative decisions appear to be important.
This creates a sense that anything goes in India. It makes people defensive and they see no hope. Consequently, many Indians rush to leave. Living outside India makes them grateful for being able to leave the country.
5. Inert justice
All else being equal, this is the killer.
In mid-2010, there were 32,127,796 cases pending in Indian courts [Supreme Court, high courts and lower courts together]. Indians who have had to be in court seem lacerated by the experience.
It creates a conviction that India is an unjust nation. This is enough for people to seek citizenship of other nations. Indians living in the West, principally the UK and the US, speak of how they can trust the system there.
Indians in India can’t.
6. Inferior intellect
Most effort seems centred on keeping backwardness alive. For instance, governments routinely identify communities by their backwardness and keep them that way.
Ideas are rare. Even those that merely try to be awake are bludgeoned. For instance, the crafty proposition that corruption is fine because it is a leveller. This is like saying addiction is all right because it brings the wealthy and the wretched together.
Instead of trashing the thought, the person saying so was targeted. Also, the three girls who sang in Jammu & Kashmir were not a rock band. Far from it. They were merely holding guitars and singing. That doesn’t make anyone a rock band but it was enough to trigger backlash.
The simple truth that drives Indians out: Peddlers abound in India; not thinkers.
7. Scary schools
This is one of the top three worries of India. Schools and teachers employed by them seem to be seriously short on integrity and skill. It makes parents so fearful that they’d rather leave than risk disaster in India.
Those that stay behind, students and teachers, rarely have attractive qualities. It’s so bad that diplomats of other nations posted in India almost never educate their children in any Indian school.
Progress, if any, comes purely from individual industry. Like the auto driver’s daughter in Mumbai who topped the all-India chartered accountancy exam weeks ago.
Fact: No Indian university is in the world’s top 200. So they leave.
8. Yearning youth
Even worse than the level of education is the fate of youngsters who come through the system. Hope and enthusiasm pull them through, but once they start looking for jobs, it hits them.
Management students work at call centres, engineering graduates slog it out in IT jobs, and IT behemoths mostly offer data entry and marketing jobs. All of this is soul-destroying.
The result: Youngsters spend time and energy looking to leave India. The lack of avenues breeds resentment and they leave.
9. Measly money
Those who do get jobs hate their fate, instead of looking forward to a life of fulfillment. So miserly are employers that Indian professionals can’t wait to leave the country.
I know of talented chefs and journalists who have spent lakhs of rupees trying to leave India. One chef I know was offered Rs 9000 a month at a five-star hotel. He felt insulted and is seeking to leave at the earliest.
Journalists are offered paltry salaries or none at all in the interiors. In many states, owners tell correspondents to attract advertisements so they can take home commission from them. A career in films, too, can be heartbreaking for the young.
All of them leave.
10. Talent trample
Calamity could be brewing in the story of Arjun Tendulkar, chosen for Mumbai’s under-14 cricket squad ahead of others with far better performances. A cricket official has said this was done because ‘he has the genes of Sachin Tendulkar’.
This official should’ve been sacked, but he is gloating instead. Such disrespect of talent has brought India much disgrace. It makes the nation look like a banana republic.
It’s the same with politics, cinema, journalism, economy, and even art. It makes people leave. They look for countries that respect talent and are willing to pay for it.
These are strong reasons why Indians look to leave India – because India is a fair weather nation. You can live here only if the going is good.
Kamal Haasan felt it this time and he got the media attention. Most of his countrymen don’t.
I left India in 1971 (for USA) for a myriad of reasons. Main one was salary and opportunities, of course. And I don’t agree with the author that salaries are comparable in USA and India, that is sheer fantasy.
But another reason he doesn’t mention is the over crowding in India. It was overcrowded in 1971, by now it is positively a nightmare. Whenever I do to India, it saddens me to see the places I saw during my childhood, empty spaces, now filled with skyscrapers.
I am from IIT Mumbai. When I went to IIT (1966-1971), IIT was in the middle of nowhere, it was pristine wilderness. But a few years back when I went to India to visit, I was going somewhere by taxi, and the driver pointed out IIT to me. I couldn’t believe it. It was as crowded as anywhere else.
Besides the crowds, there is the dirt, the filth, the slums. The diseases. No matter how much money you are earning, that doesn’t separate you from the polluted air, polluted water, the noise, the crowds, the whole sordid mess.
Then of course there is corruption. These days I live in Canada. If I want anything from the government, a permit, license etc., all it takes is a phone call (these days not even that, on line application is sufficient). In India, if you want anything from the government, you must bribe everybody, from the Chaparasi to the Big boss.
Having lived outside India for the past 45 years, my attitude is, India is a great place to visit, but it wouldn’t want to live there.
There can’t be better description of our India, with such a details unfortunately. Especially, aggressive society and offensive attitude mostly filled with hate for everything that is different, may be a state, language, looks, color and more importantly , caste. I don’t want to go my next generation go through this, though I did for 35 years back home.
You are right in that Indians are too sensitive and arguments aggravate quickly but given the current political divide in the US and rampant gun violence, I don’t think the latter is any better.
INDIA WILL BE ALWAYS BEST,, DON’T FORGET NARENDRA MODI’S WORD,,AFTER 10 YEARS AMERICAN WILL BE WAITING IN RAW FOR GETTING INDIAN VISAS, CHANGE YOUR NAZARIYA MAN,,,,WHEN EVEN SMALL GUJJU BUSINESS MAN OWNS 5-6 CRORS AMOUNT THAT YOU NEVER EARN IN YOUR US WORKED LIFE ALSO WHEN HE DONT EVEN KNOW A WORD OF ENGLISH,,.STUDIED,WORKED,LIVED IN STATS FINALLY FOUND BETTER TO SPEND MY MIND IN MY FATHER’S BUSINESS.
You are completely wrong, Narendra can’t fight against hundreds of thousands of corrupted politicians and Government servants. How many years Narendra Modi remains in his post (PM)? 5, 10, 15 years? he can’t make it. One day India will be the poorest country like Africa countries, do you know? there are over 60% poorest people in India. Day by day corruption increasing.
Your need to pay a bribe for every work, if you want to start a company you must pay bribe even it could be half of your company investment. And they torture you every day for money.
90% of peoples in India not thinking about our country, corruption, improvements. Why should we pay tax? to loot by politicians or government officials. There are about 2 crore government servants India, they are killing and torturing 125 crore peoples of India.
I am living in Coorg in Karnataka, I have visited Revenue office, RTO, and Electric board, you can’t get your job done without a bribe. If you filed a complaint against them the government will suspend him for just 1 month and they will come back start making money.
The rules in India worst, why bail allowed for corrupted government people? Dismiss them instead of suspension.
I liked your post and i sense the sentiment of patriotism in it but coming to ground realities… how many students in India get an opportunity to work or research into the field of their choice?….Is there any comparison to the vast choices of subjects that US univs offers the students with those down here in India?….
Talking bout jobs in Core sector…how many core companies(especially since u mentioned electronics as ur area of work) do visit colleges for recruitments and what is the number of people they recruit?…Now…Wouldnt you like to grow the barley than to just chaff it??….Well thats exactly what IT and sadly many of the core companies are doing to us.
Although its true that we have the potential to bring about the change by walking the tough lane and opening up product based firms…..Reality is…..
Who wants to take it the hard way?..fight the corrupt Babus…get their hands dirty in bribing govt,…OR wait for years to get bills passed…why not we rather work in a conducive environment where everything is at easy reach and then maybe come back to India(there are people who aim to) and with the knowledge and experience gained we could bring about some ground breaking changes here too!
It seems from the comments as if no company believes in an Indian degree. I am beginning to suspect that for some companies, foreign degree is the norm to recruit in good positions and the Indian degree people are only fit for entry level jobs.
The main mistake of your article is that you have analyzed and put up only the core engineering field. As far as I know, one of the key area which generate MS interest is life sciences and the opportunities for Biotechnologists etc. While the Indian medicos and labs prefer a B.Sc or M.Sc graduate, what about B.Tech graduates, who are more versatile than B.Sc students, not confined only to lab techniques? (No offense to the B.Sc graduates!) The infrastructure for Life Sciences abroad is incomparable to India. In Chennai, only 3-4 universities/institutions have SEMs and TEMs. If this is the disparity, you can never expect research to bloom in India, at least in the current scenario where all placements lead to IT. A handful of Bio companies that are comparable to the US standards are Biocon, Biological E, Dr. Reddy’s, Serum Institute of India, Panacea, Piramal, Glaxo Smith, Indian immunologicals etc. None of them come to recruit people studying Biomedical or Biotech in the numerous colleges spread out in India. Hence, there exists more reasons than what you just stated. Please be more objective and try to cover all fields possible because the title reads ” INDIANS” and not ” ELECTRICAL GRADUATES FROM INDIA”.
But, I like your tone which has the patriotic feel.
Definitely i agree with prithivnarayan on 2 things. When it comes to salary i would say that an average person can save from 40000 and plus. His perspective of the innovation and stayin in India and make it a better place for the private sectors was remarkable. I had the same feeling too. I just wanted a U.S degree , so I came here and its almost my graduation time now. I feel i should come to India after a year and work for the betterment of my country. Bottom line imoney isnt everything. I give a great deal to satisfaction, passion and my country.
I really admire your style of voicing your opinions,you do have a flair of writing. But I have to ask you something. How many students going abroad do you know? Do you really think the above three reasons summarize every foreign education dreamer’s aims? I agree the money factor must be the main allure for many, but believe me its not the only allure. The latest technology, for starters, that one gets to deal with there is something most of the students here would die for.Then there’s their education atmosphere-the free,nurturing,supportive & competitive one, not the stifling straitjacket education system of India that is not going to change despite every promise from a govt about which I have no wish to talk about.
I agree that core engineering does exist but for how many? I’m in 3rd year of my B.E. Biotechnology and it was my choice to go into untested waters instead of well-trodden routes as I was always interested in this sector. Even though so many biotech companies do exist in India, most of us still get placed in software companies or consultancies. I want to go for PhD, but do you have any idea of the remuneration one gets in India for the least 5 years one works for a PhD working at the least 10 hours every day. Sure, there is some excellent research going on in here, but it cannot be compared with that of the developed countries. And the funding and stipend that the PhD students get are much higher than I can get with a good job here even after taking everything into account. I plan on returning to India after my PhD or post-doc and then working in some really good company as scientist or going for a academic position or spin out my research into a start-up. I agree everyone has different plans in life and different aims, but you shouldn’t reject other’s dreams and aspirations if they do not seem to agree with you and your situations.
I have seen and heard people establish themselves both in India and abroad. Everyone has different plans for their life. No one should flow along the tide and then then get disillusioned about life. Instead they should assess their strengths and their priorities in life and then take a decision. Its really good if you get a good job in India and work up your career ladder. Its also good if you go for your Masters or PhD abroad and then work there or return here with a better experience as a global exposure can never be compared to working in a fixed environment. So,anyway, its thumbs up!!!!You just have to know what you want in life..
One more point i would like to add beside good job prospects, high standard of living, more saving in America one can develop his brain or intellect .your way of thinking would definitely change a lot, your perception regarding different situations somehow depends on your culture or social atmosphere. for example,If you live in India you might draw your circle of horizon whose radius is 1 cm but after going there you will expand your circle of horizon to radius of 5 cm. Core study or research matters a lot but my dear friends what more matter in a long run is your attitude or intellect level .I know that some people after returning to India would try their level best to built healthy atmosphere in office or would try to make Zero political atmosphere by using their expanded intellect resulting no frustration for incoming fresher for continuing their jobs….
It’s my Oath also….
What’s your view?
I am completely agree with you buddy. I been to USA and studied for 2 years MS biotechnology. I have seen a drastic change in me and my thinking. Now I am working in a company and I hate the attitude of people here. No one even cares to greet or talk properly. How can one expect a good healthy environment. I think one should go abroad if he/she getys chance and take a life changing experience. Your horizones will expand for sure.
bro with all due respect and no offence to ur view,if u want to change engineering sector in india then u have to leave india,bro come back to real life ,remeber even if ur earning more than 50,000 rs in bangalore,they are nothing,see the cost around bangalore and if that is the same case in usa or other country atleast you have the chance to work with the employers and not the employeees .
there are many other reasons to go foreign for higher studies.
DONT FOLLOW THE CROWD,LET THE CROWD FOLLOW YOU.
TO EARN YOU HAVE NEVER EARNED BEFORE,YOU HAVE TO GO TO THAT PLACES WHERE YOU HAVE NEVER GONE BEFORE.
secondly we cant always argue about currency change from one continent to another,if this is the case then uk indian cab driver would earn more than a engineer in india.
remember sometimes it also becomes a prestige issue,for me i was never a iit material but i also wanted to make my presence feel and the only way was to graduate off shore.remember the hindi adage LOG UGTAY SURAJ KO HI SALAAM KARATY HAIN and in india there are many odds.why not give it a try,a higher study wont hurt,it will increase ur knowledge ,salary in jobs and a one more prestigious degree to add to ur profile.atleast in USA(accordind to my information as i have to apply to universities just my view) u get more than one chances to prove urself instead of depnding on a 3hr exam and also on what you wrote on answer sheet which is hardly checked for what u wrote instead emphasis is on beautiful writing and how u decorate it.
you remember mittal(the indian tycoon),why is he not willing to invest in india because of governments lame policies.
bro get a life ,we all respect you view but start thinking outside the box.
u r saying ryt bro……….
Your post is quite a insightful one and it provides good reasoning on the topic. I completely agree with the fact that INDIA is not about IT only since i myself have worked for a central government R&D organisation in the field of Elec & Comm…and have interacted with lots of core VLSI, Embedded & communication companies. They do exist and pay higher salaries to their employees. But in my opinion, apart from fat salary in US, there are other reasons like infrastructure and exposure to practical knowledge are bigger factors that play a major role while selecting to study in US.
Almost all big core companies that are in US, have branches in Bangalore. But there is a huge difference in the Working environment, Team cooperation and Work ethics in US companies and their indian subsidiaries. As far as research goes (MS and PhD), US universities have more practical and industry-oriented approach that IIT’s /NIT’s lack.
If you get a good experience here, then you can get a better position and salary in INDIA. I would love to go back to INDIA after my PhD and teach in IIT’s and help future students.
The post is not insightful for the primary reason that it covers only engineering. I’d like to know how the comparison holds when you take into account arts, commerce & medical degree (only bachelors) holders. On top of that, how about people with no degrees. Even people without degrees can make a financially stable life in the economic superpowers (like US).
Do people have to worry about gas cylinders, power cuts in their day to day lives ?
Brain drain is real and the reasons for it haven’t gone away in today’s India.
Nonsense. …i dont agree wid this. …
Hi Prithvi, this article of yours is very nice and written down with conviction and ground realities.Why India was lagging behind for such a long time and all of a sudden we find a great leap forward in almost every field ? Should’nt we be grateful to Late Mr.Narsimha Rao to follow the dreams of Late Rajeev Gandhi of Twenty First Century and open the flood gate for IT and private sectors ?The moment Private Sectors took over the reigns from the so called sick and almost dead Public Sectors this country not only stood on its two strong feet but started to run.the most benefited sector and system has been The EDUCATION ONE,which can be seen from the growth in private Universities and Education centers all over the country.I not only think that it too early to compare INDIA with US but firmly believe that given a few more years Our country will give complex to many developed countries.We should always consider our TRUE FREEDOM ATTAINED the day our EDUCATION SYSTEM took right track and shape
If that is the case if ur in US come back or if you are working in an US based company leave the job and join in an Indian based company.Giving suggestions is very easy.
Why would he do that? He has a happy and comfortable life in USA,why settle for something less? If you compare the standard of living of an engineer in India and USA, please! Way to goo
I agree with you. But you know what the dollar rate can do to a decent humble saving a guy gets from the united states . x50. Also , my friend , when you got experience in the ‘ BIG ‘ companies and also if you were working there you cut 3 thigns in the process .
1> Recover your cost of MS when you work in the US
2> Inflate your Resume so when you return back you get a high post and a very high salary.
3> return to your family with a good savings .
I am not against staying in India . India is on its way to reach some goals it has set But if I have a chance I would choose the smarter way instead !
I totally agree with what Prithvinarayan say. People aint just leaving India alone, but almost every country for America. Every body wants a greener pasture. People leave especially for reason no. Two.
My personal reason to go for higher education
1) Nasty work culture in my workspace. Psychotic Project manager and Team lead. Dirty politics for on site opportunities and promotion.
2) At age of 22 having much responsibilities. To meet the needs, I want to get more salary that is possible only by earning in the aboard.
I would like to express my gratitude to you for posting such useful articles (the above one and the previous 2). On a generic note, I would definitely agree with you on all the 3 articles. Whatever you have tried to convey is perfectly fine. But, if such is the case, why is it that so many students prefer to study or get a degree from a U.S. university in the 1st place? Even with the recession in the States and the inflation of the Dollar against the Rupee, the number of students applying to universities has remained the same more or less. So, it don’t you feel it is the way people perceive the States that makes it such a popular destination rather than the bare facts which you have provided?
