Have major career problems - would appreciate your advice?

I went to US for my higher studies (MS degree in Auto Engg) & I worked for one year there. But due to the recession, I was forced to return back to India. Now I have a steady job here with decent salary - but it will take several years for me to repay back the education loan I took for the US degree. What should be my next move - look for jobs abroad to earn more money to repay back that loan quickly, or in India itself such high-paying Automotive jobs are available?
