Liberty to choose an avenue or a place for enhancing one's knowledge and Skills is not bad. Going abroad to earn a Degree of his choice and such Coarse is not available in India, is not an act of disloyalty to the Country.
If persons who fitted like a cog in a wheel abroad where to stay back perhaps they too would have reached high peaks in their careers but in other fields. Why Indians ae expected to rejoice and feel proud of Indians who left the country when they were nobody purely for selfish reasons . We should be proud of persons who stayed in India and have contributed in its progress. The maximum dollars are being sent to India by Indians working in West Asia and not by brainy Indians.
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
Well said. You clarified in a simple way when a Brain Drain is really called so and when it is not.
It is not true that there are no Research opportunities in India. India's emergence in Scientific Research facilities are no less than any advanced Countries. India is fast becoming a place where people around the World go to do any Research. That means more Research opportunities for both Indians and Foreign Scientists.
In the very beginning some of the members have voiced it clearly that to stop brain drain India needs to create better opportunities. It is not right to shout against brain drain and feel that those who went abroad were selfish lot because an educated person would like to utilise his/her total potential. How can we expect that people would stay back in India and remain dissatisfied in their job due to lack of opportunities while they don't lack in their ability? The government needs to work upon this and act fast to stop brain drain.
Now the Government of India , in an attempt to reduce brain Drain, started taking many measures, which resulted in establishment of new Scientific exchange agreements with the Countries like Japan and Australia. And in the next few years more exchanges are likely to follow.
You are having too much faith in government to create research facilities to keep "brainy" Indians in India. Research flourishes in organizations whose survival is threatened if innovation does not take place. No Indian industry is under such threat. When they need technology they go and buy it from advanced countries. So why should they invest in R& D. The Indian space program is an exception because it was denied access to technologies by advanced countries for a variety of reasons. As its survival was threatened it rose to the occasion and has developed capabilities which it is now demonstrating with great pride and success. Companies like Google, Microsoft, GE, Philips, Sony, Cannon, Samsung, Apple etc have to innovate if they have to remain in business and they do so and reap benefits. Who is going to give them technology, they create their own technologies. @Rambabu is in his dream world to say that Indian Research facilities are world class. They are not because they are not needed and thus do not exist. India is still down the economic ladder to be able to finance mega R&D within the country.
