and on the bright side, the wages in india are appropriate for the cost of living in india, although they sound pitiful when converted to US$. it would be helpful to remember that the PPP multiplier is somewhere around 4 (or was until galloping inflation hit india, so it is probably 3). that is, multiply whatever you get in dollars by 4 (or 3) to get the actual value in goods and services, of your income in india. (eg. a haircut costs Rs. 100 in india, ie $2, whereas it would cost at least $10 in the US).
