    The danger in asking for guidance is that you sometimes get it.

    The best way to make this decision is to speak directly with the professors and grad students who work in the fields that interest you. Consider the projects they have available and whether you can see yourself working on those for the next 2-4 years. (Keep in mind that you are free to propose your own project too.)

    What country are you hoping to do an MSc in? I have a friend who's doing an MSc in the UK at the moment, he's from India too. You really have to choose a field to go into at this point. There are some generic Physics MSc courses although they're aimed more at being conversion courses for non-Physics students. You'll be able to blend theoretical and practical in pretty much any area of Physics. Ask yourself, what interests you the most right now and what do you think you'd like to work in. Think general. You'll hone in on a more specific topic during your MSc.
