There is risk in India even when you are crossing a road (sometimes not even crossing a road). How you mitigate risk is up to you. Nothing in the world is 100% safe.

For example they can suspect like, you do not know all the technlogies you mentioned on resume, you have back pain problem, you want to do this, you want to do that, you have memory loss problem, anything you can or can not think of, but recuriter's mind can think of. When you see these stupid people suspect this, you get more frustrated with them. I can write book on recruiters, I have studied them. They have very complex mind and I suspect they feel proud of their complex mind! I like technologies and I have learned many many technologies very deep. But it is not possible for anyone to remember everything I learn, they think he has loss of memory problem. If my back pained some time back because of over sitting, they will think he has permanent physical problem. For last one and half year, I did not attend any interview because I had lost interest. Now my recruiters think he has memory loss problem. I wouldn't be surprised if they suspect something else which I can not think of. There is no limit of what they can think of. The best way to deal with them is do not let them know what tricks they are playing with you, allow them to do whatever they want to do, but you need high tolerance level for that. Sometimes it is better not to respond to them, just ignore them. Let them think whatever they want. They also think learning technologies/architectures is easy because they know only names of technologies, they do not know what is inside. They do not know depth. I know many people who do bug fixing in struts project, but they do not know anything about struts. But recruiters do not understand difference between a person who genuinely know how struts work or a person who use some methods to fix bugs but does not know struts. For recuriters both are same.

I am talking general. Other fields are attracting me a lot. I heard salary in Pharma, some HR heads, earning more than IT with less hard work. It may be grass always looks green at other side.
