-Very hot climate



What is the problem ? It is better than heavy snowing.

What part of the "facts" did you not agree with? How can they not be "quite true"? The negatives far outweight any positives.

Where does it snow heavily regularly, apart from the Antarctica?

Kashif Said:

Indian Facts:
-Sharp rise in people infected with AIDS (5.1m - 2003, Top 6 in the world for infected children)
-High risk of catching disease
-Hugely overpopulated (>1 billion growing at 1.4% a year, estimated to reach 1.9 billion in 2015)
-Very hot climate
-Quarter of Indians living below poverty line (2002)
-Low life expectancy (63 yrs), death rate is just under 9 per 1000 people
-Huge disparity in access to health services between rich and poor
-Just under half the country are illiterate (~500 million people!)
-Rating of 7.2 out of 10 for government corruption.
-High air pollution from Industrial effluents causing respiratory problems.

Let's analyze one after the another.

-Sharp rise in people infected with AIDS (5.1m - 2003, Top 6 in the world for infected children)
Never approach a govt hospital.This is not a problem for Middle and higher economic classes.AIDS awareness is constantly growing and it will be controlled with in 10 years.AIDS is not a problem for all the people.

-High risk of catching disease
May be.Again this is the problem for people who cannot afford quality health care.At age>40 you are bound to catch any ailment(whichever country you are)


-Hugely overpopulated (>1 billion growing at 1.4% a year, estimated to reach 1.9 billion in 2015)

This is yet an other crap statistic.Are we going to increase by 90% in 10 years??.According to UNESCO India's population will stop at 158 crore by
2040.

-Very hot climate
What's wrong!!!That's a variety.You will not get killed by constant 40 C.Indians have a comparitive wiry frames in order to adapt to the heat.
Go to a Scandinivian Country ,then you will start enjoying heat.

-Quarter of Indians living below poverty line (2002)
India has been a poor country.Now it is a sort of "Middle CLass" country with huge number of patches of poverty.Economy is constantly growing.Not like EU economies,which refuse to grow at a rate other than a lumbering Inzamam-ul-Haq.This is not a great problem.A poor man will not barge into your room and beat you to pulp.

-Low life expectancy (63 yrs), death rate is just under 9 per 1000 people
So what's the big deal in it.A person's productive age stops at 60.Chances of achieving success after that age are remote.

-Huge disparity in access to health services between rich and poor
Tell me where don't you have disparities.Just walk on the streets of Chicago.Poverty is everywhere.This is true even in US.

-Just under half the country are illiterate (~500 million people!)
This is a slightly misleading figure.Literacy rate is 60% and is constantly growing.Particularly in SOuth India Literacy is growing by 1%per annum.

-Rating of 7.2 out of 10 for government corruption.
-High air pollution from Industrial effluents causing respiratory problems.
These are the only two real problems hindering real techie work.Our's is a fledgling Democracy.It is like America in later 1800's and early 1900's.Atleast we have a democracy.Not a autocratic rule
as in China.Believe it or not the change towards transparent procedures is coming from top.More We have politicians like CHandra Babu Naidu,greater is the pace towards transparency.

This discussion is taking a wrong turn, but anyways to add to it, I would like to say that without going into any facts or figures, day-to-day quality of life in India is very low as compared to the US. And my comparison is specifically between Mumbai and California.

As far as Suresh Mahesh's dream goes, I would say that perfect attitude to have cuz only if you dream that high, will you be able to achieve atleast half of it. And it is good that you have this dream at an early stage in your life. A few years down the lane, if you are not achieving the calculated results, you still have plenty of time for course correction.

Hi ,

I dont want to disappoint you .Lets be practical . If you are person who like to have good clothes , decent lifestyle and single AND GOOD CAR then to fulfill your dreams you should be earning 150k per annum FOR THE NEXT 6 YEARS . must you buy a house or invest in 401k else uncle sam will gobble em with taxes . people have achieved what r u dreaming . How ? . If you are single , stay in apt with 4+ people ( people do) . Never ever eat in decent cafes/diners ( not even in chipotle) . Dont plan for big trips . Window shop in the weekends . Never ever head for branded shows not even to hechts and forget abt saks , neiman or even banana republic.Live in the cities in us which has good public transport system . I would say NY /CHICAGO is the best .So u dont end up in buying a car . Dont have premium channels in television . Have the basic ones and since you have 5+ room mates u can have dishnetwork unless any of your room mate objects . I know a couple who saved 250k in 3 years and went back to india .



Best of luck
Aarvindh

This is blatant agism. It may be the case in parts of the third world that 60 year old people are not productive, but in the first world it is not. Pope John Paul was elected to that position at age 58, and continued to work until his last days. Edison's last patent was granted when he was 83 years old. Winston Churchill was 65 years old when he became Prime Minister of England.

Mahatma Gandhi broke the "salt laws" at age 61 and achieved his goal in 1947 at age 78. So even in India, life doesn't end at 60.

I guess among all the criss-crossing of questions/comments and replies, we missed a very pertinent question as asked by Suresh here.
