Before interviews I told my expectation as 30LPA as base salary + other things.
After all rounds of interviews they are now offering me 24LPA + 4 bonus(they said it's fixed) + 2 signing bonus. HR is saying they can't go above this amount.
YOE : 4 years
Current CTC : 18lpa
Is it worth accepting given the fact that initial expectation I had set for 30lpa as base and the recruiting HR accepted that .

Why is there so much hate amongst the South Asian countries? It doesn’t matter what the past is, can we just put it all behind and move on to create a better future for our children. If we put all our energy, brains and minds at work we can actually create a better world and not fight/argue for things that are trivial in the whole scheme of things. We have so many CEOs, Govt heads, Heads of major institutions who are South Asians, and we cannot do more for our countries peace and well-being?

Had really low Vitamin-D (single digits). Used to take 50K pills once a week for 15 weeks, then I read that your body can't consume that much at a single time and could cause cancer or other issues. Started taking 5K pills daily (Sun Valley) and levels were low 30s. Couldn't find a refill so moved over to 5K pills from Bronson. Levels dropped by over 25% in 1 year, instead of rising.
1) What pills do you take, if any for Vitamin-D? Looking for non-gelatin, as I am Vegetarian.
