Recently there are many topics and threads about people who gave-up their day job for AdSense.

I am from India, and here is a suggestion for all them.

In US, your living standard and basic cost is much higher. In India, it is pretty lower....you can not imagine.

For example, for a single family with one children, you can live here in a standard city for as low as $300-$400 per month that includes all basic needs like house rent, food, good quality cloth, shopping, occassional short tour, maintaining your computer, telephone, electricity bill, schooling for your children etc. Still you can buy some insuranceSounds impossible, but true, incredible.

In a metro city, that can be around $500-$600 p/mo.

For your AdSense site, you will get 24 hour wireless internet at 144kbps through mobilephone for as low as $18 per month. Fully mobile across the country. means, you can enjoy your true mobile life (with your laptop) at any city and village in India without disconnection.

24 hour Broadband connection is just around $10-$15 p/mo.

You can get your AdSense check here delivered by DHL or simple post, (if you use Indian address) or as usual, deposit it in your US bank, and access the money here from any ATM. In India, you will find at least one ATM in even a small city.

So think serious, decide yourself, if you earn more than $1000 to $1500 p/mo from AdSense, and come here. You will save a plenty of income each month, so that if even AdSense stops for you, with your gathered money, you can again go back to your country to find a job. But I bet, once you live here, you may not want to return...

So many Americans and Europeans are living a good lige here under ISKCON (search Google), they never return to their home country.

Yup, just ignore those little mob uprisings like I almost ran into at Noida, those can be a bit distressing for someone not native to the area.

@ GuluGulu how much you are earning from Adsense per month? and from your other websites genuine income

I have a single technical website that earns me average $3500-$4000 p/mo. Not telling any lie. Recently I got a personal invitation from G for a personal optimazation of my site.

itís a great experience living in India. Come experience the India, it have modern life which you live in developed nation, dusty villages, natural resources to explore, taboos, traditions, humanity, crime, politics everything you can imagine.

I am fully agree with kartiksh. If anybody coming from US or other country to India, you will still be able to enjoy western style life here too in metro cities like Mumbai, Delhi etc. Bangalore is the silicon valley in India where most big companies like Motorola, Intel, have their R&D centers and offices.

Do you know our Google has an office and a R&D center in India?

Or you can also live some rural life too...if you wish.

You can buy a luxarious 1000 sq. ft. flat in Kolkata, one metro city, for about $25,000.
Same flat in a small town can cost even $10,000.

You can actually get things done. Don't like the planning application decision that went against you? Don't like the fact that your licence was taken away because of your medical condition? Don't like the fact that your kid didn't get a place in medical school? No problem. Pay the baksheesh.

Yes, it is true. You can get almost anything done here in exchange of money.

unfortunately I got some nasty bacteria from food toward the end of my stay and my intestines will never be the same.

When you have plenty of money and you were looking for spending it whole the day, you should have bought high quality canned food or vist a very good quality, 3-star or 5-star hotel or restaurant. We have McDonalds here.

Well, if anybody plan to visit India, just search G for it and you will find lot of information and picture of My Great India.

It is true...you have very high speed internet, high-tech banks and many more western stuffs, yet living here is incredibly cheap.

GuluGulu,

how are taxes in India? particularly the ones I've listed above.

how much of the adsense earnings that you mentioned get taxed? Or would that be considered foreign earnings (deposited to your US bank?) and not taxed?

$100,000 homes in California? Where? If I recall correctly, the average price of a CA home is nearly $350,000. Unfortunately, where I live the average is right around $900,000 :(

Hey all, remember the hidden costs of India:

It will cost you a scooter each time your daughters get married.

I recently sold a house I owned (equivalent to a 4 bedroom) in a mid-size town in India for $8,000.

It will cost you a scooter each time your daughters get married

I'm hoping she won't get married more than once. :)
Divorce rates in India are almost zero when compared with the west

This is a great and refreshing thread. It's wonderful that because of Adsense and through Webmaster World we have a global sub-economy and a global community. I'm tickled pink by the idea of people earning money from wherever their servers are and relocating to countries with lower cost of living and possibly a higher quality of life.

Though I probably won't move to India, you've definitely got me interested in visiting.

How are the indian woman towards american men?

Why do you think you will need a firearm in India?

Both men and women will give you a lot of attention and try to make conversation but, sorry to have to break the bad news, it's not easy to "pull". While dating does happen in the cities most marriages in India are still arranged. Even when they are not Indian women won't marry out of their community very easily. Being seeing in public with an obvious alien (to use an American term :)) is a definite no-no with most Indian women.

Crime is low compared with the west and you won't need a firearm. Of the several thousand people I know in India not one has probably even thought about buying a gun. You'll probably be considered some sort of criminal when the word gets about that you have a gun/pistol. :)

I just returned from Sri Lanka where I stayed for 1 month. Not India, but just south of its Southern tip it's very similiar. Wonderful wonderful people, very cheap, very dirty, very hot, very much like to vist again but I wouldn't want to live there.

Adsense allowed me to extend my trip from 2 weeks to 4 due to not needing to rush back home for my job. Adsense has created a paradigm shift in the way I think about life. Life isn't work or what you do. Life is life and Sri Lanka is full of it! If you're looking for adventure, a place where you are more than welcome with open arms, smiles and handshakes everywhere you turn then Sri Lanka is the place to go!

I plan to return for 2-3 months in January. Maybe I'll have to opportunity to visit India while I'm over there this time. Check out my homepage for my blog and photos.

Wow can anyone say 'Bowling for Columbine'?

Is there any hope for America at all.. 'so hey, what about your chicks and your firearm laws..'. How cultured.. :P

You're prejudice.

Here's a great book just for you:

Hating America: The New World Sport [amazon.com]

It's an American company that brought you Adsense and more financial freedom so maybe there is "hope" for America afterall.

another Indian reporting here.

you can enjoy the life if you choose the right place to stay in. western population in india is too few. However there are lot of visitors both personal and official.

On internet front? Communication System in India is good and growing.

it is funny...for Americans, freedom means carrying around firearms.

to me freeom means

1. no speed limit on motorways
2. every beach being clothes-optional
3. no censorship and freedom of speech

The most advanced company in India which provides 144kbps internet connection through CDMA mobilephone is this:

[relianceinfo.com ]

They have laid a more than 60,000 kilometer of fiber optic cable across the country for this and other mobilephone service. Currently they are testing high speed EvDO service to deploy.

the good thing in india is u could get cheap workforce doing website programming for you

Cheap but very much tallented, I think, a tallent more than most Americans (that is why they are outsourcing from India. LOL)

Interesting thread.

I've traveled for months at a time in Asia, and it's absolutely wonderful and fascinating. But you would have to be nuts to live there just to economize. Go there only because you really enjoy the place and like it. To be honest, most Americans wouldn't. We are rather spoiled, and ignorant of and arrogant of other cultures. My suggestion is to go there for a few weeks or a few months, first. Get out of the western hotels. See if you can handle it. See if you want to handle it. If you're really into fast food, freeways, the mall and watching TV, then forget it. If you're thinking of creating a little piece of America there, also forget it.

I guess I shouldn't mention Canada, with 50% tax above 100K and 15% tax on every purchase (besides some food items).....

Does anyone consider Philippines? Beautiful country, great weather, friendly people. Cities like Cebu and Davao it's the best. Do go in Manila, its crowded and polluted.

DSL - $35/month
Nice Apartment - $200/month
Tel. - $15/month
Nice Food - $200/month
Cable TV - $10/month
Maid - $40/month (if you want one)
Tranportation - $30/month

Philippines is like the west in Asia. Fastfood, clothing, technology - its there. To top it all, they speak English well.

Anyone been there?

"Cheap but very much tallented, I think, a tallent more than most Americans (that is why they are outsourcing from India. LOL)"

I think you missed something there.

10:38 pm on May 19, 2005 (gmt 0)



India is still a hard country to live in, even the revolution of technoly and job outsourcing. I saw the living condition there. Philippines is not a rich country but is miles better than India. When you go to the malls, the people, the sceneries, they are beyond comparable to some asian countries. Your income in adsense here is much better spent there.

Note: I just went there in Boracay - known as one of the best beach resorts in the world, according to the Brittish Survey!

Now now, it's not that bad.

If the hotel I just learned to keep the toilet lid always closed and flush BEFORE you lift the lid just to make sure there were no surprises.

Communication System in India is good and growing.

When the electricity stays on, the power went out about once and hour when I was there.
