‘Too much drama’: Indian-origin CEO asks students to choose college with fewer Indians, sparks debate

An Indian-origin CEO Shreya Pattar had an advice for Indian students looking to study in foreign universities - choose colleges with fewer Indians. In her post on X, she said a large community of students from India comes with “toxic patterns.”

“Any Indian student planning to move abroad for higher education should check how many Indian students that university has. The more the number of Indian students, the lower that university should be on your list of places to join,” Pattar wrote on X.

She said Indian students are unprofessional and cause “too much drama”.

“A big Indian community of students doesn’t come with a “homely” feeling. It comes with toxic Indian patterns: Too much drama, lack of professionalism, no good role models, no leadership or responsibility towards juniors, self-centred behaviour, “group-ism”, back bitching, no seriousness towards the future,” she added.

Pattar also advised students to stay away from “that” mindset. “If you plan to move out of the country, make sure you are also staying away from that mindset, attitude, and nature of people. You shouldn’t need such people around you to “feel at home”. And if you DO, then might as well just not move abroad,” she concluded.

Take a look at the viral post here:

Shared on May 12, the post accumulated various reactions. While a section of social media users agreed with Pattar, many slammed her. Reacting to it, a user wrote, “1000% true. I got to study abroad for highschool and bachelor's and it was in quite unconventional places. There were very few Indians and at first it was difficult but so worth it now. It makes the biggest difference in learning.”

Another user commented, “I respectfully disagree. Having a community of Indian students can provide a sense of familiarity and support, especially in a new country. It's about finding the right balance between comfort and exposure to diverse perspectives.”

“Every nation must have its own toxic patterns. You have studied abroad; what are some toxic patterns that you noticed in other nations’ students?” a third user argued.
