India is a dump. Let's be honest. Some spots are decent but on the whole it's still a very poor country. With that said, India would be a good experience for a few years, I don't know if quality of life-wise it's really that nice but as far as history and culture go....it's a very intriguing place...and I'm not talking about that Bollywood bullshit either.

The amount of poverty in India is unbearable. There are enclaves in India where it is really nice but for the most part it's dirty and congested. The government main goal should be poverty eradication and developing an infrastructure but they focus on things like building out a space program. China has its own set of problems but at least they have been focusing infrastructure development and creating a skilled workforce. India seems stuck on a system based on nepotism and stagnant bureaucracy.
