    Now we all know that in different countries the value of money is very different, lets say $50, what does that mean to you ? is it alot of money that could give you a wage for the week ? or month ?

    Being in the UK i dont see that $50 is much at all but im interested to see what people say in other countries

    :NERD:

    Well in Morocco it doesn't mean lots.. It could wage a week, but it won't make you that happy, to be free and be happy in the week, you need about $100 it's way enough!

    I am in India and for us 50$ --> Rs. 2,020 (approx) 1 US $ = 42 Rupees.

    So, in India, there are lots and lots of people who are living for 50$ per month. This is not perfect salary. But, if you want to live a normal and average life. 150$ per month is more than enough. Our standard of living is really down. The rich is getting more and more rich and the poor is becoming still more poorer.

    We also have the problem of population. You will find loads of people if you go around the city. Only my city, Hyderabad, has the population more than 16 Million.

    So... 50$ is a lot for the Indians... but... for me, Its just like how you feel...

    I havent got a family but ?1400 a month wouldn't get me very far, but i suppose a single person with no bills and commitments that would be quite alot. give it a couple of years and you'll be thinking its not much lol

    Well... my father earns 1000$ per month and thats called 'Luxury' in India. However, the guys like you should come and settle in India and you can save loads and loads. You will need a truck to take that money :p

    Well... did she come to India. However, she might have gone to some slum areas and the people who live in slum areas have a little bad behaviour towards Foreign Women. The next thing is, if you are from UK, then, people may not treat you in a good manner as the British ruled people India over 250 Years and made it sick by looting the resources of India.

    Yeah! Thats true! Even Japan tried to invade through out east when all the concentration was on the west, thats at the England side. But, only British were successful in making there place in India. But, they did in the wrong way dude! There were many colonies in India, more than some 52 and all of them were friendly. But, British's divide and rule policy killed them all. Even Pakistan was seperated from India because of that policy.

    OMG!!!

    I see that's hard to live in england, actually I was planning to go there (london specially) and I think the life would cost me lots there.. However hope that I'll handle it in the future..
