    "I live in India" and " Iam living in India". Is there any difference between these two while we introducing ourself?

    'I live in India' means exactly that. It can have several shades of meaning, depending on the context. To imply that India is your native country, you might say, "I am from India.'

    'I am living in India' means that currently you live in India, but you have lived in other countries and probably will not live in India forever.

    All best wishes,
