If your combines compensation is less than 25lacs then don't! What is shown in the west is just a sham. For living a life that you can afford in 30-40lacs i.e. comfort and purchasing power in India will need more than $250000 in the US. It's literally hand to mouth. It's a fad and not worth it.


Yes...think about long term


It depends. If you have no kids, then that won't be a big problem. If you have, then you should also consider other factors.
