According to the latest survey by Expat Insider, India is the world’s fifth most dangerous country to live in.
In a survey done among 64 destinations, India ranks at number 5 following Brazil, South Africa, Nigeria, and Argentina. Every year Expat Insider conveys a survey among thousands of Expats (people living abroad instead of their native country), spread across several nationalities to determine the quality of life experienced abroad.
In 2019, 64 destinations made the cut as compared to 68 stations in 2018. Also, this year a record 20,259 participants have shared their experiences across the globe making the reports more conceivable.
India dangerous than Pakistan?
According to the reports, India is dangerous for living. Even hazardous than Pakistan and Bangladesh. Among the 64 destinations, India ranks at number five following – Brazil, South Africa, Nigeria, and Argentina.
The survey includes questions based upon a variety of topics such as Security concerns experienced, political stability observed, Leisure options, Health & well-being, personal happiness, travel & transportation, and digital life.
It is also worth noting that India has been a consistent face at the bottom since 2017.
India sits in a unique position today, where every Indian has begun visualizing their country becoming a global superpower. The government of India has been Pakistan-centric for far too long now and the citizens demand real growth and development, not superficial.
Such reports and surveys question the absolute authenticity of the government and the viability of their policies. Considering the legal framework and security provided to its citizens, India surely needs a lot of work to be done in various facets.
The changes are incipient but the matter of the fact – Is the pace of growth good enough?
What is Expat Insider?
Expat Insider is one of the world’s largest and most comprehensive surveys on life abroad. Together, they represent 182 nationalities spread across 187 countries or territories; which means their data is not only true but can be trusted.
When a community which exclusively represents a brand, the brand compromising of people who tend to leave their native country, suggests something – we ought to believe them.
As more and more people tend to leave India for differential reasons, maybe its time for the government to sit together and think of the possible solutions which can provide people with faith and hope to stick with their native country.
Impact on the Economy
The CEO’s and COO’s of world’s leading brands are Indians today. Sundar Pichai, heading google and many such examples lay bare amongst the world to witness.
Several great engineers and scientists leave their native country in the quest of a better lifestyle. This is a prominent reason why India is lacking behind in the technology sector.
These issues are a prominent factor which impacts the country’s economical growth vastly. We are only left with the second-best. Our country deserves more, we deserve the best. And under such circumstances, India is referred to as dangerous than Pakistan surely, doesn’t help the dream of a global superpower.
Which are the Best Places?
According to the reports of Expat Insider, Taiwan is the best country to live in followed by Vietnam and then Portugal. Mexico and Spain occupy the fourth and fifth spot, respectively.
Albeit, a few destinations attract the majority of expats, however, three out of the ten live in Germany, USA, UK, Switzerland, and UAE.
This is not only a government responsibility but also the duty of every citizen to protect their country and provide salvation.
It’s our image which is being hurt globally and we need to stop that from happening. We need to protect our country’s image. For thou, we want to become a global superpower in the future.
