Confessions of a Newly Returned Indian

If you are considering returning to India and would like the viewpoint of someone who has returned recently, consider following the adventures of neoIndian (via DesiPundit). Commentary on social issues plus thoughts on schooling and such. From the About section:

While your overworked spouse screams at you to take the garbage out, Neo is calmly munching on Samosas prepared by a suspiciously good-looking maid.

While you are stuck in traffic, Neo has outsourced road-rage to his overpaid driver and is lounging in the back-seat of his car tweeting from his iPhone.

While you are busy trying to outsource everyone’s job except your own, Neo makes a shitload of money working for a software company in Bangalore where he manages a group of engineers who are smart, but not smarter than Neo. Not even close.

No harm in having a little fun while plotting your move back. No?

Thanks Sujatha! There are only 2 ways to stay sane during and after a move to India:

1. Tell yourself "wow what an adventure" every day. :-)
2. Write a blog.

I chose "all of the above". :P

A masterpiece that! short and yet, subtly touching on the Neo Indian experience.
Let alone the samosas or the luxury of taking a back-seat in one's own car, with an overpaid driver to boot, a li'l 'fun on the run' (perhaps referring to the exciting job on hand), is what every one yearns for and that too in our good old India. A 'right move' indeed!
Also, Sujatha thank you again for replying to my query and I am with you on your kind suggestion. I did like the idea. I shall keep getting back to you with more queries as I proceed.
I am, as of now reading some of your latest and old write-ups whenever possible, and they all are interesting, informative and special. Keep up your good work. It's amazingly creative.

LVL, welcome!

Anuradha, good luck with setting up your blog!
