You are already thinking of it as hell so hell it will be. My suggestion is to take a cooling off period and then at the end of it decide.

Yes, quite a change of heart.

But there is a reality to living in India that is almost invisible until you actually do it.

Perhaps I'm a heap tougher than I appear!

I think people want to live in India because one evening part of your kitchen ceiling could fall down (the part the cousin said not to worry about nothing will happen) and then the very next day out of nowhere people come to repair the flat above yours and happen to be able to repair your ceiling that night, less then 24 hours after it fell. All of it you had no idea would happen or how it would get fixed, and it practically did it by itself. Where else would this happen? Some would call it prayer and a miracle, others the chaos theory.

That was so unexpected to us but it somehow explained the whole system to me. Maybe you are just very homesick and don't realize it. Take your time adjustments are never easy when you change cultures.

Please don't, and since you insist on ranting about it here, spare us the ordeal too.

The gentleman is obviously in some distress,such that can only be cured by leaving. Please don't encourage him to stay against his will. What's the point?

He may, though, feel better about it all tomorrow.

We'll see.

Where's TrinTrin?

Me thinks that, per chance, the OP and TrinTrin are one and the same There is too much in common for it to be a coincidence.

I would suggest that the OP move his business out of India and then he does not have to come to IM and rant. There are plenty of successful businesses who have figured out the system and adapted. The system does not need to change to please one!

Cheers

I think their businesses are different, and their methodologies too. TrinTrin may have found the details here to be incredibly frustrating, but he had the infrastructure and the basics sussed.

Darwish, on the other hand seems to spend a lot of time finding that what he thought was firm ground has suddenly washed from under his feat.

I remember the guy's unstoppable enthusiasm: I'm sad to see someone's dream not work out.

But, anyone who feels they are knocking their head against a brick wall should set a time limit on it.

True... the system does not change for us. I still have to remind myself regularly that I can't expect to be able to convert Chennai drivers!

Alternately, he could tell me where he is from, and, since chances are quite good that I may have visited there, we can rant at each other.

I'm not sure whether it's the drivers or the system. Does Indian have a Highway Code? Appreciate what you're saying though. I always refuse everytime my in-laws offer me the use of a bike or a "four-wheeler". I find closing my eyes when in an auto helps. My 'Sat Nav' is my nose: the smell of urine helps me identify the roads I am on.

LOL, Captain! And another day today - I hope OP is getting himself together again.
Every cloud has a silver lining!

ermm a 'duh' query - but who is OP?

darwish: sh*t happens - look around you - and tell me honestly, [and i aint talkin about IM ] are you really having such a horrendous life? yea sure - the system could be better, your gf could still be your gf.
heck... take time out - scream from the mountain tops - chill.

do you have any friends you can hang out with here? or is IM your only escape hatch?
