Question

Okay, here is something, that I thought might be interesting.

Many have talked about returning to India after working for a stretch of a few years in US or some place else.

I know many who do return and then some who want to return but cannot for various reasons and then some who just want to stay outside India.

Many of you have already made a comfortable amount of resources so that settling back in India wont be much of a monetary concern. Many have still to make it monetarily here. But anyways, if you had to consider returning home and starting work there in either the sameor a different field, then would you do it?

So coming back to the moot question - If you were to seriously think about going back to India now, not at the retirement age, then
- what would make you go or
- what would prevent you from returning?

what would make one go?
well, there are so many things they cannot even be put down here. Home, parents, family, environment even desi babes

what would prevent?
would require some serious thought, like if some one puts a gun to my temple and says agar vaapas jaane ki koshish ki to trigger dab jayega
well of course money is the first reason, however much one earns, it is never enough. another can be straight easy life here, lesser hassles, for ex it is a struggle even to travel in locals in mumbai. I cant seem to think many right now

In my heart, I know for sure that I'll return, but one visit to TOI site, and my resolution starts quivering.

Top three reasons that can prevent me:
1)The same shitty political situation back home
2)If they don't do something about the pollution levels of delhi by then
3)If the custom people at Indira gandhi airport start asking me for bribes or give me trouble for nothing. I'll take the next frikkin plane back.

Things that'll make me go back:
-Family
-Friends
-Food

...and I hope Tom Cruise dies.

what would make you go
kids.... that's what will make me go... i want my kids to grow up in a drug/sex free environment and respect me the way i respect my parents.... that is the biggest reason to go....

Quote:

what would prevent you from returning?
traffic (one can really die driving in delhi) and back stabbing traitors i.e. people like eNRI who abound there.... fortunately money is not an issue for me out or inside india....

Things that will prevent me form going back to India -


1. The lousy politicians
2. Pollution
3. Most of my family is here
4. Once you get used to the way of life here, it gets difficult adjsuting there
5. Lack of privacy
6. Corruption
