2: homes in india cheap! what a joke. foreign investment wreaked havoc with the real estate market in india. ( it was only a catalyst which channeled all the black money into real estate ). it is impossible for the common man to afford a place to stay these days. we can write hundreds of pages with the pitfalls of realestate in india. unless you have a strong family support in india it's better to stay away from realestate even though the reward seems high. corporate bonds are a bit riskier compared to fixed deposits but the yield is high. PSU debentures are also high yielding but the issue with fixed income/bonds etc is the falling value of rupee which reduces your final yield but that's the best you can get as you dont that many opportunities in the countries where you live.

Totally agree with real estate. Many of us have been so burnt by it with the lax rules and non-existent court system. If you cannot be there to manage just do not get into it. The mafia is well entrenched into the system with the support of authorities.
