Cool.

Basically if you are :

1. Rich - Stay In India - Once you are rich doesn't matter how rich you are.

2. Poor - Go Abroad - Once you are poor doesn't matter how poor you are.

3. Middle Class : ( There are 3 sub categories )

a. Upper Middle Class - Stay In India
b. Middle Middle Class - Go Abroad
c. Lower Middle Class - Go Abroad

So unless you are Rich or Upper Middle Class , you won't have a great life in India. Once you belong to that strata , generally you have powerful connections & money power so no one can touch you.

If you belong to the other strata , the only option for you to have a good life is Dadagiri , Gundagiri, Hooliganism etc.

So either you need MONEY power or MUSCLE power or POWERFUL connections to have a good life in India.

Otherwise you are basically screwed , if you DON'T have ANY of the above 3 .

Hi Adamthorat,

Good questions you have asked. The ground reality of India is only a perception and will change from person to person.

Having been in India most of my life apart from couple of years that I spent in Europe and the US, I see that India is still a poorly managed nation and far behind from the West in terms of quality of life. No doubt the hopes are high after Modi has been elected as prime minister, and it is visible that his intentions are very clear and noble at improving India. However, one man cannot change or transform India in a short span. It is a gradual process and will take time, given that he has lot of opposition from within the nation.

Have things improved for a common person after Modi coming to power? Yes they have but not for the common man. The price rise seems to be under control, but its the same corruption, bureaucracy, red tape, VIP culture etc etc. Visiting the law authorities , police, court is a nightmare. The pollution is bad, and no steps are being taken to control it. Development seems to be a term of simply constructing buildings and not planning a city or a community as a whole. Garbage disposal, traffic management, electricity, water supply .such basic facilities are not planned by the civic bodies. Road rage is increasing and driving around is always risky (at least in all major cities)
Life in India is good if one has lots of money, (and connections with important people).

What has improved in last 5 years? .. quality of buildings is good. IT still seems to be growing. Road quality is not world class, but is getting better. Some national and intra state highways are truly pot-holes free and really good to drive on. Number of hospitals providing good healthcare facilities has increased. Malls are plenty and classy, shopping or going out for a movie is the new weekend thing to do.

However, there is no New India in a sense where things have changed drastically..at least not yet. The problems that were once known about India still do exist. The rich and powerful can get away with anything, and there is no fear of law.

My reasons of moving out are - i do not see the quality of life improving for me. Even with an almost 10 years experience and a good job with a decent pay check, it is a hand to mouth situation where a middle class man is burdened with loans, taxes, and no facilities by the government, and also think about saving for the future. Plus, there is pollution, population beyond control, lack of hygiene, poor quality of education, etc.......laws are tough, but rarely implemented.

The NRIs who have returned home no doubt will have more money than what a person living in India has made, so life will seem better and comfortable than what it was 10 years back here. And you get practically everything here now.

Roland

I think what's happened in India is that just some superficial changes have taken place in the last few years like swanky shopping malls, multiplexes , high end cars , smart phones , electronic gadgets , clothes , super markets, fancy restaurants , clubs, interent easily available etc .

People are confusing that with a better life & things being changed. Most of the above things are of NO use if you can't afford them & can't access them..most people still can't use the above or afford the above .

But the basic problem & the systemic problem of corruption , law & order , VIP culture, pollution , population , sanitation, hygiene, infrastructure, rude & arrogant Gov. employees , ZERO customer service from representatives in shops,banks,call centres, private companies etc still exists , inflation, owning a house/flat almost out of reach of a common man, expensive education fees for kids , expensive medical fees & bills, caste, class, religion discrimination ..all these things are still the SAME.

Customer service is NON existent in India ..they don't even know what a customer is or the importance of a customer. Bad customer service doesn't get punished , & no one is held accountable & responsible for their actions, so they continue treating customer's bad.

Also there is a cheating & dishonest mentality prevalent everywhere ..be it that builder who sells you the flat & it takes years & years for possesion or it could be some other company. They KNOW that the police won't do anything to them & if it goes before the courts , it will take years & years before your case is even heard !

So you have to be careful in anything you do or buy ..as your first question is : Is this guy going to cheat me ? Is he going to run away with my money ? ..so you can't really trust anyone or do business dealings with anyone :(

No doubt ...India is going towards RIGHT direction after a long time ... but it will take several years to reach the west standards when it comes providing basic amenities to all citizens. It is not easy and there is no overnight solution with that kind of huge population and rotten systems.

A mall or cell tower can be built in few months ... but to have a plan to make a city pollution free or to supply clean drinking to all citizens for 24 hours takes several years. If a small road side chat vendor uses a smart phone ... it is good but not a valid sign of prosperity. But if he enjoys all the govt services, basic amenities without much struggle, bribe or links, that is the sign of prosperity.

India is ahead of many new nations that are on the race ( Thanks to MODI govt) towards REAL prosperity .... but it is going to be a ........... long wait. One should consider this along with other reasons in deciding weather to stay in west or move back to India and NOT vice versa.

Hi febpreet,

There are really good tips. I had questions regarding volunteering though (mentioned below), but let me know if they need to be addressed in a different topic-thread.

1) How can we apply to be a volunteer? Are there any factors to keep in mind before choosing an organisation / service to volunteer with?

2) Here in India I had been volunteering for causes that I had interest and passion for, like - education for underprivileged children and rural youth empowerment. However, while volunteering in Canada, would you advise to volunteer for a cause that interests me or volunteer in activities that are related to my profession?

3) Do Canadian employers look for a candidates volunteer experience?

Thanks



Hi,

In addition to what's already provided by others, (only) Professional Volunteer opportunities can be found by various Immigrant settlement agencies. Please Google, and inquire subsequently. They will advise you on the procedure. Personally, I never had to resort as such, so don't have much first hand information.

I would still emphasize upon the Career Bridge - They at least pay for the internship. Nothing like it, if you're able to score one.

As long as you have provided your professional services to any organization and able to obtain work related references, companies don't really care whether your work was volunteer or paid.

Based upon what I could gather from your experience and written communication, I don't think you would have any problems finding a well paying job here. Just keep your mind open, and get ready to move anywhere in the Country should any right opportunity knocks.

All the best!

Hi febpreet,

Thanks for the info on Career Bridge, I'll most likely go with it.

Regards

Career bridge is good but better is Gabriel Catholic. Many people in 2003 got good jobs through Gabriel.

The waiting list in Gabriel used to be in excess of 3 months then. The waiting list will be more these days. So always have a plan B.

Google and find out if any other new agencies have come. They may be offering a better deal.

If you have real hands on experience in mobile software testing, you will get a job soon. Dont waste your time thinking about volunteering. I do see many companies accepting foreign talent (esp from India) in QA and development without any hesitation. So I would suggest spending some time building a good resume and prepare for interview. You must be able to backup your resume with real examples and quality response.

If for any reason you dont get a job after few interview, you might then want to think of the other suggestions.
