I think that the lure of America is now much less than it used to be, given the amount of adverse attention, horror stories and no-longer fawning depiction of NRIs in the Indian media. The lack of domestic help and 'good food' are a huge turnoff to the kids in the upper-middle to upper classes who might have once constituted the bulk of the exodus- they can now get all the comforts as well as the high-flying careers in India, rather than having to venture out.

In contrast, in the U.S., "people have to even clean their own toilets," says Hasit Dave, 55, who runs the Klassic Match Marriage Bureau in Ahmedabad, a city in the western Indian state of Gujarat.

The horror!

You are right, Joe. The comfort of not having to do your own domestic work is a huge incentive for wealthy and even moderately well off Indians to not leave home.

Today's technology many things are possible! Yes, but certain things are not! You have guessed it correct! It's LOVE the most precious thing on earth than anything the technology can do and the money can buy. I request every individual who interacts with any individual any where, not to play with emotions.
