You got to be downright dumbo to leave a city like DC and come to India and greeted by corrupt politicians and cops. I stayed in Florida Avenue in DC for 3 years and those were the best days in my life....m going back there soon. When will these people learn ?

Indian population is more than one billion. I was also NRI and lived in Virginia for more than 7 years. America is a great country. But the problem is they (white) will never accept Indian as part of the American Society. I attended hundreds of weekend parties but all people in the party are Indians. White American never mixes. Attended July 4th Independence celebration but I never felt like my country. Now I am retired in Mumbai and unfortunately what you say is true - corruption etc but atleast I FEEL HOMELY

Major share of Indian population is still under poverty and illeterate. Corruption and all other negative things belong to the third world, and we are one right now. We (Educated & Skillful) are a small percentage when compared to the whole. India has the right to develop thru us. Its like conditioning with your mothers resources and then leaving her ailing when she needs you most. Might sound emotionally materialistic and insane to many. Most want others to take up the responsibility while they choose to be selfish, and that no doubt is the easy path. And if few of us give our inner voice the answer that we might serve our country more by earning outside and sending few dollors then we must also know that Indian population which serves India is producing much more money than is required but it gets eaten up. Same goes with NGO's which get money from NRI's though they might do some work here and there. The skilled children of India should come up as entrepreneurs and guide the rest of the force and actually work at the roots. Its our responsibility. Resposibility Vs Luxury of Life. I know max NRI choose the second. But those who work here are the ones for whom any country can be proud of.
