      I know that not everyone can walk away from their jobs. I admit that I may be one of the lucky few who can. Working in tech provided me with one huge lasting benefit — a kind of financial freedom I had never known before. My years in tech helped me build a modest nest egg that now gives me the dignity and confidence to dream of a better life without seeing myself as a burden to my partner. I will always be grateful for that.

        It’s a coin with two sides. In Europe & the UK (even Canada?), that kind of financial payout is just not possible. But you also are much less likely to have existential situations flung at you.

        I hear (third-hand) that salaries in India are increasing though, which probably helps with convincing NRIs to move back!

      Oh, I had my suspicions while reading, but only when checking the source website did I confirm that you posted another (earlier) testimonial from Harshini!

      This one felt more wide-ranging and ranty (harder to read), but not less truthful because of it. The duality of opportunity and limitations in the US today is really baffling.
