First up, researchers at MIT find that some of the highest levels of sunlight can be found in the Himalayas and that the cool climate makes the solar panels more energy efficient as well.

Interesting thought on the US visa. However, if I had the USD 0.5M, I would rather invest it in real estate in India, than the US. I dont think the US real estate market is going to improve anytime soon.

FYI its $500,000 not $5M as far as I know. 🙂
Thanks for pointing that out – corrected it now.
