New Delhi



Knowing what you know now, would you still move to this city?

No. - Oct 22, 2017
Yes, though I would take more precautions with the air. - Mar 15, 2017
Hmmm. Not sure. Air quality aside, it was a great adventure. But hard to see my kids breathing that crap every day and not feel extreme guilt. - Feb 14, 2017
Very questionable. But like I said, there are things I wouldn't take back from my experiences. - Nov 8, 2016
Perhaps not. I would bid on a post that is cleaner and healthier for my family. - Jun 2, 2016
Yes, we would still come here, but with a better understanding of the local challenges. - Sep 6, 2014
YES, glad I came. - Sep 3, 2014
No. Not having a job is horrible. - Aug 14, 2013
Yes. Especially for the great school for the kids. But I would take specific health precautions. - May 18, 2013
YES. - Oct 21, 2012
No - Sep 16, 2012
Yes. - Aug 12, 2011
never, the professional experiences were absolutely incredible, but I would never put myself through that again if given the chance to go elsewhere - Aug 7, 2011
Yes. - Aug 4, 2011
Absolutely! - Jan 8, 2011
No - even with the great school (which is now in decline) -- it isn't worth it. - Sep 18, 2010
Probably just as a tourist. I do not dislike it, but living here is another story. It is really hard just to get from one place to another. The heat, the pollution, the poverty only add on the pervasive lack of infrastructure and services. It's improving but not sure if someday the infrastructure will catch up with the "big power" ideal of India. - Aug 30, 2010
Definitely. We had an amazing two years though admittedly we were ready to return to the US. - Aug 12, 2010
NO WAY, JOSE! - Aug 1, 2010
Not sure. I do love it here, but health-wise I think I would really consider it very carefully before bringing children here. - Mar 11, 2008
Yes. - Feb 4, 2008
