i currently live in canada - i'm a student. my mother, the primary earner of the family, was offered a two-year-long posting in india to represent the interests of bell canada, a telecom company. she wants to accept it because it will allow her to save about CDN $45,000 per annum in taxes. this would mean i'd have to live in india for two years. i'm not really concerned or anything, but i do have a couple of questions. for one thing, what's the technological climate like? i know it's sort of a mishmash between ultra-high-tech and third-world, but is there enough of the former to negate the latter, or do i have to get ready to "rough it?" i'm also very concerned about my educational career. i don't think i'm going to be there long enough to specialize in anything, so i'm not going to bother with that... however, there seem to be a lot of MBA programs, and a million "institutes of technology." how relevant are these in the western world? i mean, i am coming back to north america eventually. i don't want to piss away two years of my life on a diploma/degree that isn't accepted here. WHAT SHOULD I DO finally, i'd be grateful for any random nuggets of coolness about the country. i definitely want to soak up the culture and the uniqueness the country offers. what should i do while i am there?
