hey Vikram. This is a gr8 post you have made. Am sure it will be useful to many of my friends back in the US too. Currently I am visiting home (Delhi) for a couple of weeks and took out 2 days to visit friends in bangalore. Infrastructure is a mess there and once I came back to Delhi it was a relief.

Anyways wish you the best with your work in Bombay. Do post a 1 year anniversary post too ... would be interesting to see how you feel then.

cheers!

Vikram

Thanks, Sumit. Good to hear from you. How is Yahoo treating you? If you are ever in Mumbai, do look me up.

Cheers

Vikram

Hey Vikram

Just stumbled onto your posts. They are great and quite informative. In fact they are so influential that we are moving to Delhi in Jan 2007! Just kidding.....not about the move though, Nigel is starting a new Job in Delhi in Jan 07. We are all making the move. Going to be in JSR for the wedding in Dec 06 and will scout out housing in Delhi in early Dec 06. Please get in touch ...the numbers and email are still the same till 25th Nov 06.

Hey Vikram,
I am relocating india this month. to B'lore. Can you please tell me what to do with my credit cards. Specially how to deal with postal mails may not be very secure in India.

Hi Gaurav,

If you are going to keep your US credit cards while you are in India, I would suggest you opt to receive your monthly statements online, which is what I do. I don't think your US credit card providers will care if you switch your postal address to an Indian address. If you are going to trim down to one card, choose American Express as they have the most customer friendly fraud policy. Also, inform your credit card company to flag transactions above your average transaction size so they can block unusual transactions till you clear them. Finally, don't give your credit card to any establishment which does not possess a credit card reader and uses imprints of your card instead. Credit cards imprints carry all details of your card and increase fraud risk.

Local credit card companies send you their cards via courier so you will be fine. In fact, courirer services in India are very cheap at about Rs 60-70 ($1.50) for domestic delivery. The regular postal service is pretty decent however I wouldn't risk sending and receiving high value items through it yet.

Hi Gaurav,

I am glad you enjoy reading the blog. I started writing it initially for my friends who were curious to see India through my eyes. Now, it seems to have found broader appeal with folks like yourselves. Keep the comments coming-motivates me to keep writing.

Good luck on your move to India!

Cheers

Vikram

Hi Vikram

What's a good way to move US household stuff to India. I have about 150kgs to move and airplanes allow less than half of that.

Wasn't sure if you had to deal with any of this - but I wanted to ask anyways.

Thanks

Amit

Hello:

Thanks for such an informative piece. My husband and I are considering a 2 year stint in Mumbai, but your piece gives me a great deal of pause. We have two little girls, and I am very concerned about the pollution and potentially harmful effects on their respiratory system. Do children who move there experience significant respiratory problems or asthma? Are some parts of the city less polluted than others, at least in terms of air quality? Also, when in the monsoon season?

Hi are you bases at Indore
