In a word - NO..

Agreed, s/w engineers initially make more money and have more opportunities outside India (esp US and AUS).. but when you start going up the ladder, the job is tougher than most other fields.. A good s/w professional has to be ready to spend most of his time on the job, handle a lot of stress, have good softskills, presentablility, managerial skills and much more as he would be interacting with people from multiple cultures as he goes forth.

As with any other field, he has to struggle hard as career growth doesnt comeby as easily as other fields which place emphasis on things like seniority.. here performance is what counts. Once you have learnt what it takes to keep your career, you will definitely succeed.
