Hi friend,U.S recession has affected our country India too.It has affected the share market and I.T industry,When share market gets affected it results in the down fall of realestate.Many students who was placed in big I.T companies in the campus interviews has not received any call for letters.Its being postponed and many employees are sent away from the companies.Due to rise in oil prices all the daily used commodities have become very expensive.Adding to all this we have power cuts too in our state,Life has become a struggle these days.thanks for sharing.happy mylotting.

Yes it has. I am trying to save up on car fuel by doing car sharing to my place of work. This might help me save some bucks at the end of the week. I am trying not to spend beyond my means and save for a rainy day.
