Are you the chauffeur of your "car"eer

For majority of Indian software techies, a lure of  an overseas assignment is enough to create sleepless nights. The brightest of the techies in the block will give a second thought to a sales pitch that has overseas written in bold. There's nuthing wrong, Overseas assignments are a great opportunity for personal and professional development if used to leverage empoyability.However I have observed that a majority places "overseas assignment " as career objective  and once attained, complacency,location addiction, charishma of being in a foreign land puts their "real" career objectives in their back seat which I think is suicidal.The last thing you want is your Toyota/Honda in control of your career.
