Hi, Just stumbled upon this very old thread today. I have the same kind of thoughts in my mind about this. Everyone say make the best out of what you have here. In one of the threads, members discussed about how Indian parents depend on their kids during old age and American parents do not. My personal view is that nothing can be generalised. Not all Indian parents depend on kids during old age, some of my own relatives are not like that. Anyways, the thought that being in alien country during my old age scares me. Friends, what do you all feel about this? Which is the best place (India or US) to retire....once all the milestones in life are met....house,kids,education etc. Pls share your thoughts.
