Many times I get asked by friends and family staying abroad, whether they should come back to India. I am one of the preferred portals, because I came back in 2004 and been around for about 6 years.
If you have a good job, children going to school in their teens, my first response would be, “Do Not Come Back”, stay put wherever you are. However the following exceptions can negotiate with the initial response.
– If you have lost your job and are having problems finding another due to age or sex discrimination then India is a good place to stretch your dollar
– If your family owns some real cool property in India, especially in the top 8 cities of India.
– Parents or close relatives are not well and someone close is required to be around.
– You have the connections to start a business or likely to inherit a business. You should be ready to deal with patronage, corruption, feudalism and sycophancy on a day-to-day basis. Your value system will morph period.
Will expand more on the above in the coming days.
