NRIs are non-residents but Indian
Who live outside our nation
Mostly they graduate here
Go there to be far from near & dear.
Initially feel relieved of compulsions
Enjoy the freedom with companions
Can do anything, yes, anything
No one to ask them why this swing?
No doubt opportunities galore
Experiences gained much more
Global vision enhances
Truly their outlook widens.
Going out for them is a real pleasure
Places are so tidy they feel for sure
Travel is comfy and well planned
It's a good way to feel relaxed.
After few years, miss out Indian life
Meet Indian friends to avoid strife
Enjoy Indian music and dance
For peace with oneself, a sure chance.
Get used to eating pizza and pasta
But cannot leave out idli dosa
Rice and roti are a must
Indian cuisine is the best.
Get almost everything Indian
Better than that here even
So why live here, they say
When you are paid more every day.
They view India as a polluted nation
They use sanitizer without hesitation
Carry mineral water everywhere
For they don't dare drink water here.
Come back here, did you say,
Work for your country and stay?
Will have to think about it instead
But that is too long a way ahead.
