How much do physicist earn cause i want to be a physicist. My parents and friends want me to taks CS as my subject and do B Tech. They say a CS engineers earn around (160,000-300,000)$ a year. And they also say there is no scope of a physicist in India. Well I am confused so help me. I want to go for research not in CS and make money but they say money is necessary too. Now I'm thinking to take physics as my subject and go for 5 year INT MS course in some IIT (Indian Institute Of Technology). Should I go or not please reply.
