    “Beta, opportunity does not come looking for you,” his father said, squinting again. “You must create it. There is always a way to make things better.” Rohit is a third-generation American-Indian. When he gets an opportunity to go back to India and work in an organisation called India World, he is beyond ecstatic. He thinks that India World is a theme park but only to realize that is not the case as it happens India World is much more than that but I couldn't tell you what it was because I didn't “Beta, opportunity does not come looking for you,” his father said, squinting again. “You must create it.

He thinks that India World is a theme park but only to realize that is not the case as it happens India World is much more than that but I couldn't tell you what it was because I didn't understand it myself. I can totally relate to Rohit's feelings to do more for one's country and I am sure this story was supposed to be Rohit's bigger purpose or something but honestly, it didn't make much sense to me. I am sure there were one or several hidden messages but I failed to understand any of them. The story was all over the place, the writing was boring. I don't know if it takes place in the future or alternative timeline or what because again not much was clear. No one is more upset than I for not liking this. 1 star

    I really enjoyed this short story, but wanted more - I'd love to see this concept expanded into a novella, or a full length novel. https://www.tor.com/2022/06/01/india-...

    Mr. Mittal stared his employee down. “Rohit, you create opportunities. Opportunities are not simply given.” This made me hungry and curious. It's such an interesting take on immigration and culture. My only gripe is that the set-up outlasts the climax and ending by a long shot, but otherwise it's such an interesting plot.

    As a daughter of immigrants, I can completely relate to Rohit's position between two worlds, old and new. Well done. As a daughter of immigrants, I can completely relate to Rohit's position between two worlds, old and new. Well done.

    I really liked the ideas in this story, but for me the execution fell flat. It felt like the author had a couple of really good scenes, and then strung them together with a lot of "and this this and that happened" so he could get to the scenes he had. Maybe it would have been better served in a longer format? I really liked the ideas in this story, but for me the execution fell flat.

    2.5, really. I enjoyed the way the author played with diaspora and inverted India and America's current roles, but I found the plot weak. 2.5, really. I enjoyed the way the author played with diaspora and inverted India and America's current roles, but I found the plot weak.
