    Re: Is it time to move back to India?

Thanks @ed Archer for the video and book links.

They were helpful , I now understand better why India would be better prepared (exclude Mumbai, Delhi and other metros) for it all.

In response to your question, People who have worked in America are considered better experienced but not if the job they did is no longer relevant.

When I think about it, I believe if I can learn about utilizing renewable energy sources then I might be able to help others with installing wind mills, utilizing biogas as fuel etc.

    Re: Is it time to move back to India?

Thanks @C1oudfire for your valuable insights. Right now I am in Seattle, WA and my hometown is city of Udaipur (it’s the one with famous hotel in middle of a lake, if you have heard of it!) , this city is roughly 170 miles south-west of the capital , new Delhi.

When i was reading your post, it had Udaipur written all over it for me  🙂

Well, now I guess I have to examine the doubt in my mind about all these predictions being true and convince myself towards one or the other kind of future! (i.e. if we missed something and things will “somehow” continue to work and I would be harming my future by leaving job now and returning, or that we would have to change our ways of life and begin from ground up.)

I kind of sensed that was the case . . . Udaipur sounds beautiful . . . Even the name is lyrical . . .

Cloud, you and I have disagreed on several things and still do probably,  but I totally agree with what you said about family and community. Kiss

I’m sorry, I can’t resist expanding on this . . . As an I.C.U. nurse, I’ve been with lots of people through the dying process . . . and I’ve been privileged to hear their reflections as they approached that inevitable moment . . . And not once have I heard someone express regret over the business opportunity that they missed, or how they wished that they spent more time at the office.  What they do talk about, is how they wished that they had spent more time with their kids, how they wanted to go home, and how they wished that they had devoted more of their lives to spiritual pursuits . . . Home . . . home . . . and, that final home . . . That’s where the gold is . . . If you live your life with the day of your death in mind, regrets will have no place at that hour . . . regardless of events in the outside world. 

And now, I really will shut up . . . SurprisedSmile

Aw, that’s sweet (no sarcasm, whatsoever, intended).  And while we’re at it, I really like seeing an alternative to your original moniker, as while we haven’t agreed, you never struck me as zomboid, at all . . .

Skip the vaccine, Ed . . . You can have some of my elderberry syrup to ward off the flu and irrational impulses toward reconciliation, too . . . . Wink

    Re: Is it time to move back to India?

Hello,

Care to share what you have finally decided over moving back to India?

You are not alone who is still struggling to pick up a choice between Western country vs Home country.  I liked your idea of learning more on renewable energy and spreading its awareness. India is a place with 80% sunlight and solar power can be really useful.

Thanks to cloudfire for wonderful guidance about life, its meaning and value of family (surrounding)

Regards,

Siddhant Kumar

    Re: Is it time to move back to India?

Over the past few months, I have been trying to find a job for myself there. I am trying to find out if I can be gainfully employed with a energy consulting firm (related to wind farms or solar panels etc.). I’m saving whatever I can in Indian banks rather than here.

Until I get a job there, I have prepared myself as much as I can, like many others here, to get through a small shock, if one comes along the way.
