kdsingh80 Posted February 22, 2010 Report Share Posted February 22, 2010 CNN IBN has made a documentry about the craze of going abroad in Punjab http://ibnlive.in.com/news/30-minutes-punjabs-youth-exodus-from-home/110451-3.html For young men in Punjab, nothing is as appealing than an opportunity go to a developed country. For many, going abroad means an opportunity to earn more money and live a better life. Every year close to 50,000 people leave Punjab to go to a foreign country. Till recently, Australia was the preferred destination. Reason: Almost anyone could get a visa. And after your studies, permanent residency and then citizenship was almost certain. And although the recent attacks in countries like Australia has brought down the total number of migrants to 4,000, the desire to go abroad remains a big goal. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
