Thanks for providing the list with a well-balanced view of India. To be
honest, I really hate to see and hear how some people negatively react to
this whole offshoring business. I'd love to visit India at some point,
though a move out there might be tricky for me, personally, as I'd have to
convince and then uproot my family to do so. If I were single and not bound
to any one area, I'd take you up on your suggestion in a heartbeat, just to
see what it's like.

On the flip side of the issue, it must be wonderful to be able to find
abundant technical opportunities in your home country instead of having to
relocate to the US or other country for work!

Thanks again!
