Bangalore actually... So happens  that my inlaws stay there and I get to visit that city once in a while.
Any of you planning to come to India, we can chat up in Mumbai.

And as far as jobs in the US goes, it may be far more relevant to teach 
design and project management skills than straight programming, 
certainly more so than teach commodity languages like VB or Java.

If universities choose to devolve into mere trade schools, perhaps the 
best assistance they could offer programming students is a one-way 
ticket to Bangladore. ;)

But if they teach managerial and design skills, those non-commodity jobs 
are the most likely to remain available in the US throughout the 21st
