Which country is the best for an Indian to settle? Pros and cons to discuss?

Before answering this, you need to understand what they are looking for in life. A basic comfort, typical 9 to 5 job, social security, safety, health and medical care for the family, then countries with a socialist perspective work better for them, such as Norway, Sweden, Canada, Netherlands, Ireland, Finland, etc. . targets, who are more interested in taking risks, aim higher and better than even the average citizens of the respective country, one has to look in depth at government policies (not socialist mentality), immigration laws, etc.

Before answering this, you need to understand what they are looking for in life. A basic comfort, typical 9 to 5 job, social security, safety, health and medical care for the family, then countries with a socialist perspective work better for them, such as Norway, Sweden, Canada, Netherlands, Ireland, Finland, etc. . targets, who are more interested in taking risks, aim higher and better than even the average citizens of the respective country, one has to look in depth at government policies (not socialist mentality), immigration laws, etc.

India - I still call it home, it is still the best place to live for each and every Indian. Also, if we all moved to another and only one country, imagine?

USA - Second option, I used to travel regularly, I lived in Los Angeles, I was once flying back to Los Angeles after a busy work week, on a plane a conservative looking old white man next to me asks me: Are you going home too, son? ”. Tell me, a country where your citizen or native will ask this of an Indian? You will find everything imaginable in this country, generally very acceptable, it gives you the opportunity to be an entrepreneur, to be the leader in companies like Microsoft, Google and many more, this cannot be matched by any nation. Remember that things are not cheap here, especially the health benefits are not free to the public.

Canada: third option, very receptive, humble, helpful and very kind people, a large Indian community, especially the one in Punjabi, feels like you are in Punjab if you are in Toronto, the index of health services and human development is even better that in the US immigration is far easier than complex in the US The only problem is you can't make it as big as you can in the US, even Canadians come to the US for that.

Japan: fourth option, a wonderful place to live for anyone, also for Indians. You will find a lot of people who help, very safe, without racism, amazing food but very expensive and everything is small. The biggest problem is the work culture, there is a reason why Japan is among the most unhappy countries.

Singapore - 5th choice, safe, good community, acceptance, you can find all the luxury of any Indian there, but Chinese or Malays do not interfere or take pleasure in socializing with Indians a lot, usually I have noticed that Indians socialize between them too. if that's you, Singapore is nice.

I'm still not quite sure about Europe, I have to explore and be there long enough to list that here.

Singapore should be the best for most Indians, due to the following reasons:

Well connected: less travel time, 4.5 to 5.5 hours. Tickets can be as cheap as 4500 / - (yes, Indian Rs). Multiple direct flights to all Tier 1 and major Tier 2 cities.

Less time zone difference: only 2.5 hours difference. You can always stay in touch with your family on call (it's a hassle to call from the US and Canada), without Jetlag when you travel, so you can plan short trips (few days) also several times a year.

Large Indian diaspora: more than 10% of the population is ethnic Indian, one of the highest of all countries. You can easily find Indian food, gr

Large Indian diaspora: more than 10% of the population is ethnic Indian, one of the highest of all countries. You can easily find Indian food, groceries (no other Indian store can beat the Mustafa variety).

All festivals are held (if you still miss India, they are only 5 hours away, you can celebrate at home)

Warm like most of India: throughout the year the temperature stays between 29 and 31 degrees. Similar to the warm climate of India.

Many Indian Schools - Branches of many Indian schools with Indian curriculum. So if you plan to go back to India, it's a hassle-free transfer to that school's Indian branch, with no readmission issues.

Speak English.

* Tamils ​​have an additional advantage, as Tamil is one of the 4 official languages.

Maids

Full-time maids are available at a fairly reasonable salary. (Not having a maid in developed countries is a big problem for some Indians)

In practically, in many terms, Singapore is like an extension of India (and much better).

Low income tax: ~ 7.5%

Good places to visit: Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Philippines, Cambodia, etc. they have a very good connection.

It also has all the goodies of the developed country:

  1. Extremely low crime rate - among the lowest in the world.
  2. Excellent infrastructure
  3. High standard of living
  4. High income (for highly skilled people)
  5. Excellent public transport
  6. Excellent tourist avenues
  7. Amazing and safe street food.
  8. Clean Air
  9. Very good public spaces
  10. Pride to be among the first in many indexes.

It is like a perfect city for the Indians.

No other country in the world promises Indians a more complete package.

Edit: Other good options have some limitations:

USA & Canada - Nearly opposite time zone, so you hardly have time to call home.
Very long travel time (also expensive) and severe jetlag (restricts travel to India).

European countries (except United Kingdom): language difference (both to live and to work).

Being Indian, the best place to settle is India itself. I have several reasons for this.

  1. Large population. People may see this as a negative, but if you think otherwise, this abundant human resource is a plethora of opportunities. Especially when it comes to the service sector. If you can deliver something of the highest quality, people will crowd around you. That is why we see in many places in India where a family runs a small bakery or other shops for years ...
  2. Adaptation of genetic traits. If you were born and raised outside of India it would be a different story tall

Being Indian, the best place to settle is India itself. I have several reasons for this.

  1. Large population. People may see this as a negative, but if you think otherwise, this abundant human resource is a plethora of opportunities. Especially when it comes to the service sector. If you can deliver something of the highest quality, people will crowd around you. That is why we see in many places in India where a family runs a small bakery or other shops for years ...
  2. Adaptation of genetic traits. If you were born and raised outside of India, the story would be completely different. But if you were born and raised here, then you have memories, nostalgia and all that. No matter how long you say you don't have any, they are encoded in your genes.
  3. Places to see and visit: If you think that the whole of India is full of problems, then you are also wrong. We have places of all kinds of climates ... From Kashmir to the Thar desert, from Manali to Munnar, etc. It depends on our choices. World calls India a subcontinent, the reason because it contains all kinds of things that a continent has. Indians have almost visa-free access to some 20-30 countries.
  4. Education: The best doctors, engineers and scientists in the world are from India. That means we have some of the best schools in the world. Whether it's IIT, IIM, or world-class schools, we have them all. Educating at these universities is the way to Harvard and Cambridge. But I would even say that we don't even need it. How many ISRO scientists have studied at Harvard or MIT?… :) .. Still, they are the best or second best in the world.
  5. Standard of living: It depends on your income and your frugal way of life. I know people who earn between $ 20,000 and $ 30,000 a month in a metropolitan city like Chennai and living a luxurious life is a luxurious apartment. But they don't save much. On the other hand, I know of a street food vendor who earns at least 3k a day after all his expenses. Then the choice is ours. Someone might say that living expenses are high, but I would say that it is high everywhere in the world. Whether in the UK, US, or anywhere, you may need a mortgage to buy a home if you are from an upper-middle or middle class family. The same goes for India too.
  6. The Indian way of life: family and social life closely linked. We do not accept appointments to see our parents nor do they accept appointments. We love to keep our children on our side until we think they are good at flying on their own. We do not risk in their cases and we give the best that we have. For us, family comes first and then the rest. Even our individuality will take a step back when it comes to our family. I'm not sure how to explain it further, but I still felt that the Indian way of life is much better than that of any other social society in the world.

I hope my answer has helped ... Enjoy life ... Be altruistic :)

From what little I have seen or heard
1) India - it has to be by definition
2) United States - that small country with 100 bases that is home to many indigenous people away from home. English, democracy, driving on the wrong side, work addiction, the pursuit of success are familiar to many of us.
3) Canada - if you can stand the cold
4) Singapore - Chinese flavored melting pot. Perfect for South Indians. Sometimes I wonder why I don't live here. I guess it's too easy.
5) Kenya: good weather, good people, good for traders, not so good for professionals
6) Saudi Arabia: respectful people, wages are good
7) Japan

5) Kenya - good weather, good people, good for traders, not so good for professionals
6) Saudi Arabia - respectful people, wages are good
7) Japan - polite, orderly, we feel brotherly to the Japanese. Cons: need to learn their language. The work is long.
8) Kuwait \ Qatar: Earn lots of tax-free money here, enroll your child in an international school, and travel the world. If you are an Indian Muslim, why wouldn't you be here?
9) Aus \ NZ - English, cricket, Commonwealth traditions, the interior and middle ground in your backyard 500 kms away. Cons: possible racism

Mixed Bag:
UK - A friend said nothing gets done on time and things are pretty quiet. People are on time and in no rush to deliver. Office has racism in its policy. I know a cousin who came here and settled in London. It seems to be fine. You will have a large South Asian community, so there will be food and festivals.

UAE: I think a pure Arab company will be fine. Too much international mix will not work due to their ridiculous salary ranges based on nationality. You will not have a good office environment. Still, many Indians go here and prosper.

I would not really recommend:

Thailand: If you are paid well, you can live comfortably in Bangkok. I would not recommend it to 95% of Indians due to the language barrier and generally I would say Thais are not very friendly to Indians (it is different if they know you personally, but at first it is like climbing a wall). Yeah yeah, they have ganesha and they use Sanskrit words, but that's just nonsense. Do not care. You need a certain patient temperament to be able to handle it and you need to give up many niceties that we are used to, but you can cope if your spouse is okay to stay at home.

Hong Kong: don't go here, okay? They are just not nice.

If I consider you to be a businessman, then in my opinion, New York, San Francisco, Boston, Hong Kong, Singapore, Tokyo, London, Shanghai, Moscow, Madrid, Paris are the best place to settle because they are the most popular in terms of business base or job purpose.

And if you plan to live a normal or random life, you can go for Iceland, Denmark, Austria, New Zealand, Switzerland, Finland, Canada, Japan, Australia, and the Czech Republic as they have a

  • Low crime rate
  • No natural disaster
  • Low corruption
  • Immunity to the economic crisis
  • Or is it quick resolution cases.

Well, first of all, it should be India just because you will feel at home and have adapted to all the conditions of the country so that you do not feel any difficulty living. But if your choice is to have a better life, first ignore all the countries that are worse than India, such as some countries in Central Africa, Central Asia, and some countries in South America. The next step to consider is the main reason you want to emigrate, it is always better to live in a country that is less racist, otherwise you will have to live there as a pure introvert.

If you want to get rich quick, the Arab countries are the best option.

If you want to live a laid back retiree life, Southeast Asian countries are good like Indonesia etc.

Brazil is a good option if you want a bit of adventure.

Yes for studies, Canada, Germany and the USA are good.

The UK, Australia, East Adian countries and Scandinavian countries are not a good choice due to racism. If you want to visit just for traveling in these countries, that's fine.

Sri Lanka

Without a doubt, it is the best place for an Indian to settle. The following are the pros:

  1. Salaries are better than in India.
  2. Cheaper than most metropolitan cities in India.
  3. You will not face as much racial discrimination as you would in European / North American countries.
  4. Very low population. The population of the entire country of Sri Lanka is equal to that of Mumbai.
  5. Climate similar to India in general
  6. Similar food
  7. Better roads and signs. People adhere to traffic regulations more than India.
  8. Cleaner than India. There are some photos that I would like to share.

However, not everything is green. The following are some of

However, not everything is green. The following are some of the disadvantages:

  1. There are not many job opportunities compared to Indian cities.
  2. Public transport is not as good as in India. Our railways and roads are much more superior.
  3. Colombo and its surroundings are well developed, but the rest of the country is still quite backward.
  4. English or Hindi won't work everywhere. You need to learn Sinhala and Tamil at some point.

Singapore
: I have been living here for the last 8 years. It is easy to settle down and be part of a community. Crime statistics are low and 1/4 of the population is of Indian origin. You can find food, culture and practically that is a big part of Indian society. If the world cup is on, you will find your own group to support you with an ice cold beer :)

Apart from this, I have Indian family and friends who are based in Vietnam, USA, London, Australia, Malaysia. They don't complain much to miss ho ...

If the question is which country is better to work and settle, the answer is the difference. But the question is about the Indians. Our Indians mainly work in the Gulf countries, Southeast Asia and the United States in large numbers. We work abroad because we feel comfortable with the salary, the system and the climate there. But what we really miss are our cultural values, festivals, relationships. We also confuse our children with cross-cultural values. We follow some system in our home, while the outside environment will not match that.

We follow some system in our home, while the outside environment will not match that.

Unlike educated workers, many unskilled workers face many more challenges and are repeatedly misled by antisocial elements. Even I know that some people are working as bonded laborers in the Gulf without seeing their relatives for 10 years.

Educated society wants some system to work with and they start to move out of India for lack of recognition, technology and, of course, remuneration. But it is the responsibility of educated society to develop Indian technology and start working in that direction.

Then there will be no possibility of this question itself.

As far as I am concerned, the United States of America. We have a justice system that may not be perfect, but it is better than any other system. We have opportunities to be as successful as we choose. Our religious system allows us to choose who we pray to. This great nation may have its flaws and there may even be corruption, but it is the best nation.

This is very subjective regarding the preference of individuals. If you want to be closer to home and love to settle abroad, the likely destination is 'Singapore'. Mr. S. Shukla described the reasons that are very realistic and practical. My brother made it his home for over 15 years and every time I visit the place the conclusion is "it is an extension of India".

The beauty of India is its pluralism and diversity, where acceptance of other cultures is a way of life. The probable spirit is also in Singapore. It is a confluence of western and eastern cultures and culturally refined people. If I have the opportunity, I will seize the opportunity, but that does not mean that my love for India has diminished.
