When is the right time to go back?

That's a question keep on asking me from deep inside my heart. I knew that a lot of my friends who were working in abroad also asking themselves this same questions. Some got their answer and get through their desired ways and successfully flew back over to home land and establish their dream business and enjoyed their life already. Some people, like me, still finding the answer and not yet get the solution that can satisfy own-selves, are still struggling in high pressured work environment.

Two days ago, I had an informal discussion with one of the cab drivers while I took his cab from my project site to back to the office headquarter. Like usual drivers I'd experienced before, he asked me same question, how about your country? He quoted that Myanmar is the most richest country in natural resources in south east Asia countries, and if there were proper management for those resources, Myanmar can take top role in a short period of time in regional ranking especially in ASEAN. I agreed with him, and I also added to his comment saying that present situation was now heading to that destination we had wishes for previous generations, and if keep on going ahead with this manner, we can says that golden days of Myanmar is not too far in the future. After adding comments on his quote, I added again saying that this is the right time to go back to Myanmar for Myanmar professionals who were in abroad. And I told him that I also decided to go back and start own business within two years time.

Cabbie laughed at me suddenly, and told me that he don't believe my statement. I asked him "Why?". He had answer ready for my question. He said that nearly thirty years ago, some of his friends from India also saying the same thing. His friends told him in 1981, "My longest stay in Singapore will be 10 years only, then I will go back to India.", cabbie continued his sentence with smile, "now is 2011, twenty years from the time they told me that they will be going back to their homeland. However, they were still remain in Singapore. They came and work as ordinary worker holding work pass, a few years later they applied Permanent residence, then a few more years later, some of them even converted into Singapore Citizen. Where is their quote that they will be going back homeland?"

I have no objection to his comment, it is true and is also a remarkable comment and a note to be taken into consideration for goodness of future generation. I tried to think like as I were in their shoes, at first they will have really had same destination and decision to go back to their homeland and do business like me. But, theoretically speaking, it is their own, personal decision. After getting married, and having babies, their destination deviated from the one they made in their past. The main thing is that they consider more for their younger generation than their own-selves. OK. Then, what is the main point that make them stuck in abroad? Having generation in abroad should be main thing making them stuck and deviated from their own destiny. (It may not be true for everybody, but it is just my personal opinion.)

So, how about ours? If we are walking the same road, at the end of the day, we will be at the same destiny that those people being here since long time ago. It is sure that we will be at same situation and having no choice than staying in abroad for whole rest of life. Then, what should we do? We have to walk differently from those of older generations did before. Like those others, I am also still finding the most suitable answer for my future destiny to be able to satisfy myself.

How about yours, my friend? It is not compulsory to answer it over here. However, It will be appreciated if you all can share your point of views over here. Thinking with more heads is sure better than thinking with one head. I would be pleased if I can give you a piece of thought that needed to be pondered, hoping you all get the correct and suitable answer for your lives.
