Want to go work in India?

Interesting. Seems like Indian companies are now hiring ex-pats at Western salaries:

Want to go work there?

As with many of these offers, the difficulty arises when you want to "come back".

So you move to India, and work in an Indian corporation 'outsourcing' your expertise back to the US.  Why would a US company ever hire you in the future?

And why would another Indian company ever hire you, should you lose your ex-pat job?

Why wouldn't a US company hire you in the future?

Because you have experience dealing with or managing Indians.

Obviously I haven't been everywhere, but it was bad in Mumbai and bad in Uttar Pradesh. And it wasn't just "this tastes horrible" bad, it actually made a few of my friends ill.

I guess US companies will hire you. They would give you a role where you would have to interact with the Indian companies they will be outsourcing to, which is increasing of late.

I was in Mumbai and Trivandrum earlier this year; the food was fantastic.

Maybe they don't point the white people to the best restaurants.

We were at a billionaire's extravaganza party. He'd already shelled out quarter of a million dollars to get us (~100 people) to India, they weren't exactly going to skimp on food.

You can't have spent your whole time in India freeloading off this millionaire?

Food in India can be awful or superb, and it is quite difficult to know beforehand.

One thing to do is avoid meat and chicken, and only eat fish if you are on the coast and it is straight off the boat.In general though, I would say the food I ate in India was superb. And of course the quality of fresh fruit is way above anything you see in the UK.

Incidentally,if you visit the Taj Mahal have a curry in the official restaurant just outside; it's excellent.

Absolutely we did. About 12 days or so in total.

The food wasn't all bad. There was food from all different cultures from all over the world at the party. The Mongolian food was surprisingly good.

We never ate at Indian restaurants which catered to tourists, though (unfortunately we missed the Taj Mahal). Mutton seemed surprisingly popular for some reason, which is not a nice meat.

Mutton makes excellent curry.
