    Good question! Would it be bad if we return back to Mumbai with 250k savings?

      That's like INR 1.75 Crore which is not enough for housing in most metro cities like Bangalore and Mumbai, and I am not sure of Hyderabad and Delhi NCR region. Rent is still affordable with a TC in INR. It is the same situation in the US metro cities.

      It all depends on how your lifestyle is. Best thing to do is to account for what your expenses might be in Mumbai, and make sure your savings can cover them. IMHO you will need to work in Mumbai and use that 250k as a cushion. If you/parents don’t own house in Mumbai then I won’t suggest moving back just yet as housing can be expensive.

    I've been to India several times on business when I used to work at Amazon. Wow I am thoroughly convinced that it has got to be one of the dirtiest countries in the world. And I've been to other developing countries, but there is no comparison. The filth is simply overwhelming, and I honestly never knew it was possible for air quality to become so bad. Weak organization, and corruption at all levels of government. Who the hell besides hipsters want to live in India?

      Google traffic & air quality in Mumbai/Bangalore or other metros. Delhi is winner hands down

    No one wants to live in India. Hardly anyone ever migrates to that country and all its people are hoping to escape from it. It is a terrible place.

    • Not true. Bangladeshis move there all the time. A couple floods and a handful of crippling food shortages is enough to spur anyone to action.

    Lot of Chinese actually return to their country. Indians don't because most are greedy for money and materialistic

      Debatable. I read the most blind posts with the mentions of India/ Indians. My understanding is - it has more to do with the quality of life and constant fear of going back to India. So I created this post to talk more about objectively looking at the pros and cons of going back to India vs migrating to some other country.

    China is not an immigrant country and mostly if you have no Nobel, the chance to get a green card is NEVER. and Chinese only speak Chinese in China and Chinese think Chinese is the best language and not one of best. It is hard to learn Chinese. So China is not a good option.
