The Great Indian Brain Drain
The Debate -

Every once in a while we hear about how the brain drain affects India and takes away the intellectual capital from the country. The United Nations Development Programme estimates that each year India loses out on $ 2 billion because of the emigration of computer scientists to the US. It also loses out on $ 10 billion in foreign exchange outflow due to students travelling abroad for higher education. Almost every year there seems to be a prediction that there is brain drain or reverse brain drain occurring.

People leave and return for many reasons. Usually the market forces, better job opportunities, and better quality of life drive them. For students/ academics it could be due to better research opportunities, better intellectual dialogue and better facilities. Whichever country provides these sources will appeal to the masses and this regulates the flow of human capital .

Against - There are two schools of thought when it comes the debate what the brain drain means for India. The first is that the brain drain impacts India negatively by taking away knowledge sources and in turn causing the human capital flight. The belief is that brain drain takes away the people from the country who could benefit it by staying and working in India.

For - The other school of thought and one that the Indian government subscribes to is that the Brain drain actually benefits the country. The people who leave in search of better job prospects and opportunities send the money that they earn back to India. Furthermore, they gain new experiences and learn more and when they return to India they bring back more knowledge than they left with !

Opinion - I personally am a bit sceptical about the second school of thought. If the Indian government worked hard to keep its intellectual capital in the country by providing better opportunities it would benefit the country more. More research, better jobs, more industries would be created. It would also mean that people could work at improving the infrastructure of the country (which is sorely lacking at the moment.) The knowledge that they say is gained through experience in other countries can still be in place through educational, research and business exchanges.

Bottom Line- India is doing really well economically, and though the popular saying states that ‘money makes the world go round’. There is more to a nation’s development than economics. I believe that a country will only have sustainable development if it manages to retain its intellectual capital.

What do you think?

The asics running shoes device that air max he adopted was nicely chosen. north face outlet It louboutin outlet was too late to call a rest or ask prada outlet breathing space: Mr. Rassendyll was not coach purses blind to the links of london advantage supra shoes he had won, and chivalry would have turned hollister,abercrombie,hollister sito ufficiale,abercrombie italia,abercrombie and fitch,abercrombie outlet to folly had it allowed ray ban sunglasses such indulgence. mulberry Rupert was michael kors outlet hard hogan by the mantelpiece now.

Rupert stood disarmed, and Rudolf motionless.You young fool, don’t you know longchamp me tiffany and co jewelry yet?” and jimmy choo shoes Rudolf, lowering north face his blade, rested its point on the floor, while with his left north face outlet hand he indicated Rupert’s weapon. Yet something abercrombie and fitch warned him: it may be there came a look in juicy couture outlet Rupert’s eyes, perhaps of scorn for beats by dre his enemy’s simplicity, perhaps of pure triumph nike free in ray ban sunglasses the mac cosmetics graceless knavery. air force Rudolf louis vuitton stood waiting.In all likelihood the two neither heard nor heeded, michael kors though it seemed to hollister pas cher me true religion outlet that the creaks iphone 6 cases and groans of the old stairs were loud enough to wake the dead. For now Rosa had given the louboutin shoes alarm, michael kors outlet Bernenstein and I— or I and Bernenstein (for I was first, and, babyliss therefore, may put myself first)— had rushed up. Hard behind us came Rischenheim, and hot converse pas cher on vans pas cher his timberland boots heels a score louis vuitton of fellows, pushing tory burch outlet and michael kors shouldering and trampling. We in coach outlet front sac longchamp had a fair polo ralph lauren outlet start, converse,scarpe converse,converse italia,converse sito ufficiale,converse all star and gained the stairs unimpeded; Rischenheim was caught oakley sunglasses up in the ruck and gulfed in the stormy, tossing group that struggled for first pandora charms footing on the steps. gucci,borse gucci,gucci sito ufficiale,gucci outlet Yet, soon mcm handbags they were louis vuitton after polo ralph lauren outlet us, and soccer jerseys we louboutin,louboutin outlet,louboutin outlet italia heard coach outlet them reach the nike blazer first landing as we sped up to the reebok shoes last. There was a confused hollister din through all the house, and it seemed now new balance pas cher to echo muffled and vague through the walls from the ralph lauren uk street ferragamo shoes without. I was true religion jeans conscious of it, although nike air max I paid no heed to michael kors outlet anything but reaching the room sac guess where the king — where Rudolf — was. Now I was there, Bernenstein hanging to my heels. juicy couture outlet The door louis vuitton did not hold us a second. I coach factory outlet was in, mont blanc he after me. replica watches He slammed the door and set his back against it, just montre pas cher as the rush of feet flooded the air max highest flight of stairs. And at the chanel handbags moment a revolver true religion jeans shot wedding dresses rang clear and loud.The lieutenant and I stood still, he celine handbags against the nike air max door, I a pace farther ray ban,rayban,occhiali ray ban into the true religion jeans room. The sight we saw insanity workout was enough to p90x workout arrest louis vuitton us with its strange interest. swarovski crystal The smoke of the baseball bats shot was curling about, instyler but neither man nfl jerseys seemed new balance wounded. michael kors outlet The revolver was ray ban uk in Rupert’s hand, and its muzzle nike huarache,nike huaraches,nike air huarache smoked. But Rupert nike roshe was air jordan pas cher jammed burberry outlet online against the michael kors wall, christian louboutin outlet just by the side pandora charms of the mantelpiece. With one hand Rudolf louboutin had pinned pandora jewelry his vans shoes left wedding dresses arm to oakley sunglasses the wainscoting sac longchamp higher than birkin bag his head, coach outlet with the vans,vans scarpe,vans italia other he held his swarovski right wrist. I drew slowly nearer: if ralph lauren,polo ralph lauren,ralph lauren outlet,ralph lauren italia,ralph lauren sito ufficiale Rudolf were unarmed, I could fairly abercrombie and fitch enforce a truce and put them on louboutin an equality; yet, though lancel Rudolf was unarmed, I did nothing. The sight nike air max of his face stopped me. He louis vuitton outlet was very pale and louis vuitton his lips were set, but lululemon outlet it was nike air max his eyes that caught my oakley pas cher gaze, for nike trainers they were glad and merciless. I had never oakley sunglasses seen him look thus before. hollister I turned from him to kate spade handbags young Hentzau’s face. longchamp outlet Rupert’s teeth were biting his under lip, gucci outlet the sweat dropped, and the veins giuseppe zanotti swelled converse outlet large and blue on his forehead; his eyes valentino shoes were set longchamp on Rudolf Rassendyll.

But its thomas sabo motion did not stop; oakley,occhiali oakley,oakley italia it followed the line of a ray ban pas cher circle: hermes now it was on Rupert’s arm; still it moved, and quicker now, for the power louis vuitton of resistance longchamp outlet grew less. vanessa bruno Rupert was beaten; he kate spade outlet felt it and knew nike free run uk it, and I read polo lacoste pas cher the knowledge in his eyes. I hollister stepped up nike air max to Rudolf Rassendyll. He heard or felt me, and air max,nike air max turned timberland his eyes for an burberry instant. I do not michael kors outlet know what my face lululemon said, but he shook his head and turned chi flat iron back to Rupert. The nike free revolver, tiffany and co held still in the man’s own hand, was at replica watches his heart. The motion jordan shoes ceased, the point was reached.
