Indians who are educated in America have a tough time to going back to India, and would rather stay in America. Is this a surprise? Maybe to the know-nothings who think highly educated immigrants do not contribute to America because the immigrants always return to their country.

Hooray to immigration, and hooray to America.


  1. I have worked with a lot of Indians. They are very good people. They work hard for their piece of the American dream. Most of the ones that I have met really love America more than their own country. Unfortunately they will be attacked in the next elections because of job losses in America.

    The article mentions pollution is a big problem in India. The U.S. Congress can reduce pollution in the world by requiring all factories that create imports for the U.S. to meet the minimum U.S. pollution requirements. The U.S. has minimum requirements on all food imports and safety requirements on products. Therefore I see no reason for the U.S. to impose minimum pollution requirements on all imports. It does not make sense to require all factories in the U.S. to meet minimum pollution requirements and allow all countries in the world to pollute all they want while making products for the U.S

  2. The link that you point to has nothing to do with "Americanized Indians" finding hard to work India.
    It is about one man - Shiva Ayyadurai - being fired off CSIR.

    And contrary to what it appears in above article, Mr. Ayyadurai himself has been facing a lot of heat. He has been accused of financial mismanagement and unethical behavior!

    Now, I don't know what really happened but your conclusion about immigrants is simply off mark. (it may be true, but that article doesn't prove it)

    More about Shiva Ayyadurai here -

  4. “But, like Mr. Ayyadurai, many Indians who spent most of their lives in North America and Europe are finding they can’t go home again.”

    “But a study by Mr. Wadhwa and other academics found that 34 percent of repats found it difficult to return to India — compared to just 13 percent of Indian immigrants who found it difficult to settle in the United States. The repats complained about traffic, lack of infrastructure, bureaucracy and pollution.

    For many returnees the cultural ties and chance to do good that drew them back are overshadowed by workplace cultures that feel unexpectedly foreign, and can be frustrating. Sometimes returnees discover that they share more in their attitudes and perspectives with other Americans or with the British than with other Indians. Some stay just a few months, some return to the West after a few years.”

    The above quotes are from the article. I do agree with the Korean and the above quotes from the article supports the Korean’s conclusion.
