Brain drain - the emigration of highly trained or intelligent people from a particular country.

We know a lot of students who graduate from the top engineering and mba colleges (like IIT and IIM) seek jobs outside the country. They are offered best in class salaries and also the very best in terms of training, technology etc. On their personal front they can grow and achieve much in life but from the point of view of India as a country, our premium and best talents are being utilized by others. Many big names have Indians at the top.

So should we feel proud of their achievement or should we feel ashamed that India could not make use of their talents?

    We need neither feel ashamed nor be so proud.  This is global economy and so it is natural that prospective employees choose job where they get the most. Our industries also get the staff and experts as they need.

    Grabbing an opportunity, that makes one well settled and provide a good opportunity to earn is not at all objectionable.

     If one thinks its bad that our talent is being utilized by other Countries, then the Think Tank of this country should think why our talent is being utilized by other Countries. And if the youth is provided the same learning and earning opportunities, there is no necessity for Indian Talent to go to foreign countries spending huge amounts.

    The one's who leave the country are educated with tax payers money at fraction of cost if they were to study at the countries they run away to. So they are taking selfish advantage of both countries and are not loyal to their mother country. But those who want to go should be allowed as it reduces stress on job market in India. But they should not be treated as Indian Indians once they migrate out.

    Migration a very normal process that happens all over the world , some people may prefer to call it brain drain. People should have the freedom to work anywhere in the world and it is but natural that you would select the best available opportunity that is available anywhere in the world. There may be time in the near future when things may get reversed and India may become the most sought after destination for educated people all over the world, offering the best job opportunities. So, this whole debate about brain drain is futile because migration is a way of life ..

    If India wants to take the benefit of their talented students then the country needs to offer a good working atmosphere, scope for progress and obviously a hefty pay package. The cost of living is getting higher and higher, medical expenses are huge, cost of education is high then what's wrong in going for a better package available abroad. After all charity begins at home. Thinking about India and ignoring the requirements of one's own family is not justified at all. To stop this brain drain India needs to wake up and create the best possible opportunities for the talented lot.

    There is nothing wrong if one seeks better education in a foreign country. Then, if one thinks only foreign education can give an edge over others for better opportunities , it's a mistake. A close member of my family without any foreign degree is serving as the Vice President of a renowned IT Company in B'lore.

    As some members said it is not just money that is the attraction in seeking jobs abroad because if we see Indians living abroad , most of them lead a middle class lifestyle because earning 4-5 lakh Rupees is a month is like having an earning of 75,000 -80,000 rupees in India. And many of them can come to India for holidays , may be once in 2 or 3 years because of the huge expenditure involved. Some of them even split and visit.

    There is also another factor that is more attractive , it is the lifestyle. Everything s neat , travel is regulated and no chaos like we see here and generally polite and well mannered population that is easy to deal with. Travelling to other paces is so much easier when you live abroad and are a immigrant or a citizen or a green card holder of another developed nation with regard to visa unllike here. So, all in all it is the complete package not just money!

    The benefits of staying in advanced countries are obvious but the issue is does everyone who leaves the coutry has a brain which can be considered to be a case of drain.

    It's only when people with brain leave that it leads to drain.... We have lakhs if indians working as labours in UAE...that does not constitute a brain drain. It's when the intellectuals leave the country... They do research and may be get patents also, these would have belonged to india instead it is with country they migrated to. Govt should take steps to provide the required resources and infrastructure in india..

     Only then these ideas can be implemented for the betterment and advancement of the country

    I feel that people with talent and affinity for any vocation or career should feel free and unrestricted doing what they do and like the best. And they will go to any city of country that fulfils this condition very well. Would Satya Nadela, Amartya Sen, Sundar Pichwai and others would have they been able to reach this peak in their careers had they chosen to stay back in India??? Those who feel and think that such people are disloyal to their country answer this question!

    After all, people with an objective and skill to move forward in life will only go there where their work is appreciated and wanted.
