Going abroad???!!!!!?!?!?!

Couple of things were confusing or rather bugging for the past few days. Amidst which I was happy to see two awesome templates given by Sanjayan and Ranjhith. : ) Thanks a lot. Oru paarattu vizha vekkalamnu yerpadu aitu iruku ;) Hehehe.. Manamarntha Nanrigal! :) Will put those in few days since this was replaced only few days ago. So wait to see the nice template friends.
Matter'ku varen ;)

Disclaimer: This post might not be interesting to some and even bugging for few of my friends :)

It was astounding to see many people leaving abroad for jobs these days.Till the age of 21 or 22 we are busy with our studies. Finishing the high school, getting admission in a good college to get a degree. And our parents are busy earning to spend for these expenses along with the day to day life expenditures. Somewhere after the age of 23 people get opportunities to go abroad and make a decent earning. Am entitled to do a clarification at this point. Am not talking about foreign visits in which case you stay there for some time and get back to your home land. Am talking about staying there for a very long duration and about settling there. Foreign opportunities will give you international exposure, experience in competitive world, stabilizes one's financial status. True, agreed. But all these at what cost?

* In many homes, this might be the time where the parents might have quit the career under the name Voluntary retirement or retirement. They might want to spend more time with their children or grand children. One has to miss this good time being with the family together.
* If the person has kids then the kids are missing the grand parents love & affection, the bed time stories and so on.
* Festivals like Pongal,Diwali,Christmas are being missed.
* Missing friends and relatives.
* We as sons and daughters should give a supporting hand to parents when they are in need of. No parents would even let us know that they want us to be with them. One reason- Pride takes control ;) and the second - They after all wants us to be happy. But its we the kids who should give moral and financial support when really needed without being asked or hinted for.

Early days people came from village to towns and cities for job opportunities since they had no opportunities in villages. But now India is not like that. It is just that we are aspiring for more in all aspects. As far as money is concerned, 'contentness' is a word which can never be used. First, one might want to stay abroad for a year or more to buy a car for your home in India and then another couple of years to built a house and many more years and many more commitments. All these small things which would make a happy home might appear negligible in comparison with the money, luxury and experience we earn abroad. But in the long run what do we earn in life apart from money? In the process of earning we miss many nice and pleasant things. I DON'T MEAN one should restrict going abroad but rather limit the time spending away from home, friends and relatives. A person settling in U.S or U.K, is it not like plucking a plant from its field rooting it in a different Island. Is life, all about spending 20 years of mechanical life at home land and then flying away from home and spending the rest of your life miles away???

1. Am not talking about going abroad but staying there forever
2. Am not talking just about home but also many other pleasant things being in your home land.
3. Finally, staying for few days or settling forever is one's own wish ;)
