One of many cases ( Not exhaustive)

Let's say country A can offer me safety, food, better life for my kids - safe and secure.. so I leave. But then I realize the value system here is too different than mine. There are many good things in my value system that can be amalgamated with good things of country A's culture - but hey! my kids refuse to listen to me altogether and snap back at me with sassy replies . .. WinkLOL

I am not pointing fingers- what I am trying to say is.. for economic reasons or legal , one moves..but every person wants a perfect world don't they...so as per their experience all that is perfect they would like to seek that..no??


This ain't about India - Parents-Kids stuff.. Big smile.. its ok.. . learn to manipulate them ( nicely and subtly) and get your work done Wink

A simple question based on the title you have for this topic. Suppose someone tells, a pudding is so great! How do you feel? Trusting what that person tells is only going to pain you because you are not getting that pudding to eat. Only if you eat it, you get the feelings of happiness and pleasure. People surely say 'India is great'. Always feelings are important and not what someone says even if that person is so great. Those persons who have felt the sweet taste of 'pudding' in USA or other Western countries stay there and it is out of total knowing. Everyone who says 'India is great' can that person explain, 'why does he have that feeling? How is the greatness he/she finds in India gives him/her happiness or pleasure? How does he apply the greatness he sees, for his day-to-day life to make himself happier and full of joy? Life is meant to be enjoyed and everything is allowed except for harming another person. All the rules I need to follow is not to harm anyone else.  What do you say?

Of course for those persons who say that they are peaceful in their life in India, and they feel comfortable in the life in India rather than USA, I will accept what they say and they have right to make their choice. But then another person can feel more comfortable in USA rather than in India.  The point is again if a person likes to live in India by choice, it is more acceptable rather than is a person says India is great country and that is the reason he lives there.

Lol I understand you !! 
Same case here. 

My mom and dad are from Srilanka, they both migrated to France almost 30 years ago. I know it's because of political reasons. 
But still my mother always compare the way we're brought up here, and the way she grew up there. She's very proud when she talks about her country. 
And I reply then go back there ! (thank God my dad isn't like that). 

I'm not ashamed of my roots, but I'm loyal to France because I grew up here. When the question is between France or Srilanka I'll always stand up for France because I've spent more time here than anywhere else. 
I'm not saying France is the best country, no but I'm just loyal. and I can't understand that my mother isn't grateful towards this country which welcomed her.

True to an extend, but the real question is how do you measure country's greatness or the quality of life?
- corrupt government
- education system produces quantity and not quality
- no population control
- no health/medical measure

The sad part is that in a recent survey conducted Globally which states that 10 million Indian wants to migrate to US ...

Are you implying that the 10 million wish to migrate on the assumptions you stated above ?
frankly speaking I dont think much of such people. I have more respect for those who accept the challenge and dare to bring about a change for the better in their homeland.
 
Gov is not some external agency but from the citizens. good citizens make good government.
Corrupt Indians would remain corrupt outside the country  -  Mr Rajat Gupta , who reached great heights in the US - but ended as  the fallen ex IITian that the homeland had looked upto Ouch
 
Education system- Indian students have been academically outshining  the other students since long inspite of the system Ermm
 
Population control-  We could see better results once homosexuality and live ins catch on in the country LOL
 
Medical measures- c mon India is fast emerging as a  hub for medical tourism Tongue
 
Those who plan to desert the country on the grounds stated need to re think. Anyway it would be no ones loss if  such losers migrate . US is welcome to accept them Wink LOL

Gallup
survey states that about 138 million people from about 154 countries want to migrate to US because of the economic opportunities and the established networks of potential migrants.
There are no assumptions here but nearly facts, from which the survey was conducted.

frankly speaking I dont think much of such people. I have more respect for those who accept the challenge and dare to bring about a change for the better in their homeland.

As much as I may agree with you here, but the fact remains that a change must come with in a person.

Gov is not some external agency but from the citizens. good citizens make good government.
Corrupt Indians would remain corrupt outside the country  -  Mr Rajat Gupta , who reached great heights in the US - but ended as  the fallen ex IITian that the homeland had looked upto Ouch

The Indian government is officially corrupt and no convictions, at least Mr. Gupta got convicted for his deeds in the US.

 
Education system- Indian students have been academically outshining  the other students since long inspite of the system Ermm

There are about 200,000 Indian students who come to the US for further studies every year. And the sad part is that Associated Chamber of Commerce and Industry of India estimated that it's loosing US $17 billion a year due to students going aboard to study.

 
Population control-  We could see better results once homosexuality and live ins catch on in the country LOL

Another excuse for  not addressing the population control in India. It is estimated that by 2050 Indian will exceed to 1.69 billion in population. 

 
Medical measures- c mon India is fast emerging as a  hub for medical tourism Tongue

What does medical tourism mean?  Let's say you had an accident on the streets of India, what is the max  threshold (in minutes/hours) in which you will get an ambulance or medical assistance?
 
Those who plan to desert the country on the grounds stated need to re think. Anyway it would be no ones loss if  such losers migrate . US is welcome to accept them Wink LOL

I wonder who is the real looser here, the ignorant or the opportunist  :)
