Living abroad has been an aspiration for the youth of India. Better quality of life offered by excellent education and job opportunities, infrastructural facilities and planned spaces have attracted Indians to foreign shores. But on the flip side of this rationalization coin lies the dread of leaving the larger base of loved ones and friends.
