  • Planning for a job in foreign countries area only for mere money after reaching back. Salary what they are giving is at par what we get here. Only after we reach home country after certain years with hard work and when we exchange our savings saved there into Indian money we can get a good quantum. But if we think they are giving more it is just illusion.
