Re: Oh, India
The work situation in India is pretty weird. You have to get permission from the company to quit your job (relieving letter). You can't work for another company unless you can present that letter which basically means they have a kind of slavery going on.
I've once looked at jobs in the Middle East and it appears the same situation exists there, even to the point that you apparently cannot even leave the country without permission. Given the choices I decided not to go there, but it would be cool to hear from someone who knows this in more detail because I find that frankly an astonishing idea for the 21st century.
