Question #2 is why do Indian students go to foreign Universities for post-graduate studies? Question #1 is why go for post-graduate studies in first place? Okay, keep aside your obvious answers and counter-questions to above questions. Answer the following question first –
Where do the foreigners go for higher studies?
The answer is – they stay in their own countries. Why? Because they evolved their own system and offer better education than in India. So how long is this going to continue? Why not evolve our own education system so that students won’t have to go to other countries for education.
But that applies to those who go to foreign Universities for the want of education and gaining knowledge. 99% of the people opt for post-graduate education to satisfy their own greed and realize the dollar dream. I classify those people as hopeless idiots.
The recent Anuj Bidve murder in Manchester has got many people thinking whether they should really consider going to foreign countries. Whatever happened is sad and shouldn’t have happened. But the hate crime is going to rise as more Indians migrate to foreign countries. I see it everywhere. No one really appreciates foreigners occupying your land, jobs and resources. Don’t argue with me. It happens everywhere!
My friend who got a job in Hyderabad tells me stories of how Hyderabad’s software engineers refuse to talk to the guy from Maharashtra or North India who doesn’t speak their language. Another friend tells me how Maharashtrians object to renting out houses to Bihari students and so on. The point is – we treat foreigners as foreigners. The same story repeats in the US where my friend told me how a taxi-driver indirectly insulted him. And you know – your friends would have told you their own stories.
