GDP - per capita: India $2,700, US - $46,000
GDP total: $1.09 trillion v. $13.79 trillion
Inflation rate: 5.9% v. 2.7%
growth rate: 8.5% v. 2.2%

It may make sense for you, I am not completely aware of the situation in India. I agree that the situation with GC is bad for EB3 India, but I think there are plenty of opportunities here as well. Just do not base your decision on emotions, keep your cool...

Default idea

If all members of this community pay 100 grand , we can buy a country in africa and build our own country!!
This could be good substitute for buying houses here worth 500-1000k$

What do u think!?

I understand this is supposed to be a humorous note but I found it offensive. All countries in Africa are sovereign and they officially cannot be bought.
I am not aware of any island in Africa that could be up for sale.

Default HSMP is a much better option

For those of you who qualify, HSMP , I think is a much better option. There in UK the permanent residence is not dependent on employer and you can do your own consulting. Typical bill rates are 350 to 600 GBP per day based on skill level and years of experience.

Yes my note was for humor.
But to answer questions :

out of all useful land , I guess africa has lots of uninhabited land!, so someone would not mind selling! Its not to offend anyone. I have great respect for africans, being aware that we come from them!
Me being an indian upper class guy, and this OBC thing going on back home, I dont think I belong to that country that much, where me/my children will be discreminated against!!!
So dont you guys now think we need our OWN country???

I am sure Indian politicians will sell India, if we collect enough money. Everything is possible with India.

Your sense of humor is pretty low class, crass and ill-informed.

comparing India and US by GDP does not make sense.(it is like comparing heaven and earth ..but though US may be rich ..the question is are you becoming rich here ..which varies from person to person) actually when you make a decision to go back ..the question to ask if do I have a better future in India or US. India is growing but you have rotten, stupid, dumbF, (you can keep adding adjectives here) politicians ..just see the recent quota policy endorsed by none other than Manmohan singh.
but if you feel family ties are more important, children will get better education in India //then make a move. but it is one way street as far as US is concerned ..because it is next to impossible to come back and start over again ..the good thing is US is losing its sheen while India is getting better in terms of jobs and other countries are becoming more welcome.
for many ..quality of life in India is much better (in terms of social / party life) ..and I guess they know how to play the system. one of my friends who is a US citizen ..is completely relocating to Pune ..taking with him 20 years of savings / investment ..
