Spending 10 years with this intention of saving and going back sounds strange but people always did that when there was a need. My Dad left his native place in his early 20's towards commercial city of Mumbai and settled down there. Migration in last 10 years is more towards want based than need based. But thats how humans are.kenfrapin wrote:
Also, I dont believe in spending 10 years in a country just to save up and then go back. Life is precious and 10 years is a long time to not settle down and build roots in your community. I would not want to lose 8 or 10years just working to build my nest egg and then go back to India and start from scratch again. Also,you not only lose 10years but you also lose the friends you have made, your family(which most of us will have in those 10years) lose the bonds they have built where they have lived and even India will feel alien when you go back and settle down after 10years.

This really issue really haunts me. As I see my kid (just turned 6) growing I feel I better escape NOW. In fact I am visiting India next month to start searching more about the schooling etc. so my next step is to start hunting for a job there in few months time.kenfrapin wrote:
If you have a family its very unfair to your child/ren, if born here and schooling are more British than Indian and taking them back when they are above 5 years is something I wont advice.
I advice not to do that. I have seen people burning their fingers doing that. Invest in the place where you have people and knowledge to back you up.kenfrapin wrote: spreading your bets across China, India, South Americas and South East Asia sounds better.
That was true 10 to 15 years ago the stats are changing. Percentage of people taking care of thier health and shape are increasing.kenfrapin wrote: most Indians, once married or over 30, whichever comes first, develop a lovely full rounded belly..
