Why do I want to go back to India?

Why do I want to go back to a country driven by corruption and giving up on half its population? The filth, the xenophobia, the bad infrastructure, the relatively low standards of living, the diseases and the pollution should also discourage me to return...


Passionate India

India is a country where everything is pushed to the extreme: the poverty, the wealth, the warmth, the pollution, the colours, the religions… One doesn't like or dislike India. One loves it or hates it.

Passion can be dangerous but is also an achievement driver. I obviously disapprove extremisms that aim at hurting others but I love passionate people who have the guts to make their dreams come true.

Exciting Potential

As a b-school student, I can’t ignore India’s huge economic potential. India and China are tomorrow’s economic leaders. Despite being a pool of talented and energetic people, India still has structural problems to deal with. Hence, the pace at which India will overcome the world will depend on government’s willingness to change the rules of the game. Infrastructure should be improved, capital flows should be liberalized and meritocracy should be encouraged.

There is a saying,
"when the goings get tough, the tough get going"

well what can I say, welcome to India. I believe competition will bring the best to the top.

PS: Reading your posts, I wonder if I would have wanted to live and work in India, if I were some like you or to add more contrast, if I were to be from the New World!

People buy Brealey Myers to keep on the shelf. Actually this is because in India, prof's actually teach in classes unlike in USA where they just give assignments and expect people to read the book and do the assignments and what the prof teaches is enough to clear the course. And some prof's actually teach what is needed leaving out the piles of junk present in Brealey Myers. Out of the 500 or 600 pages, not more than 100 are needed in that book. Most foreign books are pretty unreadable with verbose language which is never to the point. I prefer Prasanna Chandra to Brealey Myers. It is a lot more understandable and easily usable.
