Even this challenging situation would ease
As a matter of fact, this brain drain problem exist on every level. Do we ever think why an educated person migrates from a village to a city? Obviously, he knows that in cities he has better future concerning his .higher education, jobs, money, progress, prosperity and high social status. The same is applied to city dwellers who migrate to any foreign country for the same reasons.
If these people are assured to have all what they seek in a foreign land they will not migrate from India.
Knowledge is power.
I understand the mind of the author. When a country is spending a lot of money for our education and bringing up, what is that we are offering to the country in reciprocation. They want their family to become rich. They will fly to other countries and earn money. IITs and many other premier institutions are imparting good education by spending crores of rupees. They are training their students in different skills. But they are not using this education skill for the nation.
The main reason for this is the lack of encouragement to merit student. One Scientist from Tamilnadu who won a Nobel prize in an interview told that he might not have won that noble prize if he remained in India for a job. He also said that the government is not encouraging merit. Reservations in educational institutions and jobs are making some merit candidates go out as they are not getting good placement here.
I think the government should make a rule that the students who studied in IITs and other premier institutions should work in the country for a minimum some period before they plan to go out for earning more.
Thoughts exchanged is knowledge gained.
