Your "friend" *cough* may want to consider how credible an Indian degree will be outside of India.

Am I understanding that you will have funds to live on (you know, food,roof, etc) and the opportunity to continue your studies while in India? If so, I say follow your heart or whichever bodypart may be appropriate. If you don't you will always wonder 'What if....?'

But if you are counting on whatever opportunities may exist in India to round up the funds to live on, that is another story. Depending on things to work out for the best just to get by rarely meets with success and is really just a way of setting your self up for failure.

Give it some some more thought, I'm sure you will make a good decision.

A couple of years ago I met a woman on the internet who lived in Scotland (250 miles away from me)
In the end I gave up my home and well paid graphic design job of 14 years to be with her. I was 37 years old. Things didn't work out so I came back but couldn't get back into the same line of work.

I took on a job as a security officer which I continue to do now, for much less money I might add. And have I any regrets? well...no.
It got me out of a job working for a company I hated but never had the drive to leave. I had some wonderful times in Scotland and continue to be friends with my ex partner. I've also learned a lot and met a lot of interesting people in my current line of work (and arrested most of them). And I'm also about to start a college course that will qualify me to earn twice as much as I did in graphic design.

So on the whole it was a crazy decision that rocked my life to the core but its one I dont' regret.
so, the zen for this anomaly includes but is not limited to:-

nothing is worth doing unless its risky
what dont' kill you makes you stronger
at least it stops you stagnating - a very real danger for most of us
this is not the rehearsel, this is life so live it
its' better to say 'I did' than 'I wish I had'

Don't know much about India.. But I met and fell in love with a beautiful italian girl from Venice once.. We lived together in London for 6 years like man and wife (had a cat and everything..) One day we decided to pack up and move to Italy. (I was a pro-jazz musician then) I learnt to speak Italian very rapidly.. sadly her parents and family turned out to be Nazis.. (Father was hardcore right-wing and did not agree with my suntan.. She had to decide between 'us' and a her family.. they were rich.. I lost.. got my heart broken.. it knocked me off course for a year or two.. blah blah.
Do I regret it? Nope. My Italian is great and my cooking skills have increased 10 fold..

Have met a lovely girl from the Philipines on the net..we've been 'interacting' for over 6 months now. She wants me to go there.. hahaha, she must be nuts..

Ya think?

Seriously, though, you probably already know what I'm going to say... I say follow your dreams. Even if things don't work out, it will undoubtedly be an experience from which you will learn and benefit a lot.

Has life been easy for me here in Korea? No--coming to Korea was without a doubt the hardest thing I ever did. Do I regret it? Not on your life.

And besides, it's only year, right? Child's play.

(For the record, I was poor as spit when I came to Korea and didn't have a stable job. I most certainly made some less-than-wise decisions at that point, and I'm not sure if I would recommend such a course of action, but things have turned out for the better. My point is this: there will always be something to hold you back--you will always be able to find a reason not to go. But if you live your life in fear of what might happen if things go wrong, all you'll have left in the end is regrets and what-ifs.)
