1. Before they are old enough to dislike the inevitable inconveniences of day to day living in India. Before Risha is seven, I guess.
2. Indian students get a better theoretical knowledge in somewhat restricted areas. Not what is called a liberal education with all round development. Arguable, as different schools tend to operate differently.
3. Very often they are. However, Indian kids in foreign schools seem to be even better.
4. A public school or international school is certainly an attractive (quite expensive) option. Others tend to label these schools and their alumni (and their parents) snobbish. I do not subscribe to that though.
I know one family that put in a lot of effort to get their kids back to India from USA. A lot of money was spent. The mother shelved whatever she was doing in the US, set up an establishment, got the kids into an international school and gave all her time to them. Did not pan out. The boys were older, could not handle the teachers' 'I know better' attitude, nor work with the class mates.
They went back after losing a year. Kids are happy. The elder is already with an aerospace company and the younger romping with his class mates and doing well.
In my opinion it was the problem of older kids coming to terms with the Indian way of things and not anything wrong with returning to India as such.
