Hitherto, children’s education was a problem for Indian parents in the Gulf. While the breadwinner used to work in the Gulf, the young family used to stay back home for meeting the education requirements of the children. Now with more and more Indian schools coming up, the families can be together and avail of the best educational opportunities arising in Gulf. Some of the institutions in Gulf are having tie-ups with the universities in the West.
