Over 1,00,000 foreigners work in China and even more in HongKong. However, the charm of India is also growing. 20,000 to 30,000 expats from Europe and America are believed to be in India. With many auto and telecom manufacturers like GM, Hyundai, Motorola, Nokia setting shop in India the expat figures are bound of grow.

On the other hand, there are Indians who had left India a few decades ago, who want to come back as expats, test waters of their motherland and then wonder if they want to get back to their roots at all. The lure of money and life in a developed country has faded and eagerness to make their mark on their soil is growing.

“Working with the Indians has been a rewarding experience,” says Eric Rousseau, director of Alliance Francaise, Bangalore. “The sense of family is very much present here even in the workplace. In France, the individual is supreme even in the work place, but it is totally different here; as the organization comes first,” says Julie, who teaches French at Alliance Francaise.

For some expatriates, like Dr. Jean Letschert Ascharyacharya, artist, philosopher and writer, the journey to India has been deeply spiritual. With a Ph.D. in Sanskrit and an understanding of Indian culture that is so deep as to even embarrass the locals, Ascharyacharya is not a typical westerner. He has lived in India for almost 40 years now, painting and undertaking social work among the under privileged and villagers. Undoubtedly that cultural pull is strong among the expatriates settled in India.

India is one of the good choice if you decide to move away from your hometown. The country is strong in both economic and culture terms. There will be a lot of new good experience. I had been in Delhi bfore for a few year myself.
