Reverse Exodus: High-tech Indian Immigrants Returning Home: By Mira Kamdar: Sri Renganathan had made it in America - she owned a lovely home and had a good job with Intel. But three years ago, she and her husband decided to move back to India. They headed to Bangalore, her hometown, where she was able to keep her job with Intel, before moving on to a better position with another high-tech company. Her husband, who'd been laid off in the wake of the tech-bubble bust of 2001, started his own biotech consulting business. "Ours was a one-way move," says Renganathan of her family's return to India. "We sold the house and packed up and came." Renganathan and her husband are among the tens of thousands of Indians who, despite having more than achieved the American dream, are voting with their feet to return home. This is not the mythic immigrant saga most Americans imagine. India's economic boom is now offering returning Indians things that simply didn't exist there when they left: U.S.-level salaries and an American lifestyle, including gated communities with manicured lawns and swimming pools, shopping malls filled with familiar brands, and international schools for their children. - San Jose Mercury News

Planning to return to Indian and want to learn more about the workings of Offshoring companies? Check out the new book: Offshoring IT Services : A Framework for Managing Outsourced Projects. Written by Mohan Babu K, an executive with Infosys, the book is a must-read for NRIs and others interested in working in multi-cultural and multinational environments.


This is a timely book that provides guidance on the various issues associated with offshoring or outsourcing IT projects. I found the chapters on communication and cultural differences to be of particular interest. - Dr. Nancy R. Mead Software Engineering Institute (SEI) at Carnegie Mellon University

Mohan Babu K has written a highly user-friendly book, illuminating many facets of global IT management from all points of the offshoring spectrum. This author understands offshore practices from the inside out, having IT experience both in North America as well as in India. One of the most attractive features of nearly every one of the book's chapters is the content related to culture, communication and virtual work -- along with insight about the management of technical and project issues. With the integration of both project and (what some may view as) "soft" issues, Mohan continually reminds the reader to consider the human and cross-cultural elements operating on global teams. This book will benefit anyone working across time, distance and culture. - Deena Levine Global Business/Cross-Cultural Consulting []
