Brain Drain-A short analysis

Hi viewers :D,am back.This time with a kind of important topic.Yes its all about Brain-Drain.I believe we all might have come across this phrase "Brain Drain".Infact we are seeing this thing in our day to day life.Even a layman will be seeing people who is related to this topic,the thing is he might not be knowing it is Brain Drain.So what Brain Drain means?Read on..

Let us consider a person who is born in India.Let us say relatively his family is an economically backward one.He completes his studies with the help of government scholarships(sometimes govt helps the needy people too :D),with the help of trusts etc.Assume that he has immense knowledge and is extremely talented.Now that he feels that this nation is not worth to have him and he leaves to a foreign country(same usual America :D).And there he earns much more than he could in India.So he gets settled there and feels proud to be an American citizen.This is called brain drain.Enjoying benefits in one nation to attain a good position and working for some other country for his personal well being.

Let us examine why this happens.Now you dont think that this is happening only in India,it is happening all over the world.The pic which I have included at the top is from a British magazine.So Brain Drain is not only in India.But let us not bother about other countries as there are lot of things in our own nation to bother about.If you analyse deeply(how much ever deep you go,no matter),you can get these 2 reasons for brain-drain in India for sure:1-Money and 2-Recognition(this is more important than money). First let us see whats the role of money in this ;).

Well how money is responsible?Very simple.We all very well know that India is a poor country.We dont have enough money to pay to educated/talented/deserving people.How is it possible to give good pay to educated people?If we give them enough amount of money then what our HONEST-UNSELFISH Politicians will do for money?They need money to give free tv(tv is more important than food in India,esp in my Thai Thamizh Nadu :) ),they need 2000 crore to install their own statues in a state(UP),they need money to buy votes,they need money to provide biriyani to terrorists and they need more and more money to many such useful issues.How is it possible for them to provide the salary which the educated or talented candidate expects?

Imagine you are working for some 10 hrs a day and u r getting some 18K as a salary per month in India.And u get an offer to do the same work for the same no. of hours in US and they are ready to pay you somewhere around 30K per month.Which one would u chose?Obviously the second one right?Thats what happening here.

The second reason is "recognition".This is the most important reason for this brain drain. In India it is a curse to be an intelligent person.Here geniuses are always recognised only after their life time.There are few lucky people too,who get their due respect when they r alive itself,but still they might have undergone all sorts of humiliations to get that recognition.I read this news so many years ago in a magazine.The news was: years before tsunami came,an Indian scientist predicted that such a disaster is possible. Our people didnt even care for him.Now he is working with Nasa.After tsunami disaster this news came out.His name is Arun Bhatt I guess,am not sure of his name.Pardon me I couldnt really recall the name.Not only this gentle man,there are many such people.

Now I would like to put forward some comments on those who go abroad for money.Do u guys/girls really think that u r respected there?Do u get the same home feeling in those nations?I bet,u wont.Ofcourse as days go on,u might get accustomed to the foreign atmosphere,but still u cant get the home feeling.You may belong to whichever country, but the joy of living in the home country is the same and it is some thing which cannot be explained in words.You people after getting settled in America or Australia,think that "bloody Indians,they dont even know basic manners".At that time u forget that u were also one among those so called "bloody.."

And later on u scream "oh this Australia is a racist country,oh these white people are targetting us,India should save me...".So u want to use all the priveleges that this nation gives you but u r not ready to give anything in return,isnt it?

I am not saying that you people should toil for an undeserving pay.See that you get what you deserve in our country itself and give back what the country deserves.Do you fear for cruel politicians?Kick them out.Raise your voice together.See that you get the attention of general public and media.You will get ur due for sure.There is nothing called impossible.All I am saying is we should make our life comfortable for but at the same time we should not forget our motherland

Dont forget the words of Billgates:
I will shift my Microsoft office to India,if Indians are not allowed to work here.

It clearly says only Indians are responsible for the position his company has achieved.Why dont u do the same work here and why dont you take India to the top position?Think...

And I believe this is the most serious article I have written here..If u feel that this article is an irritating one,no issues,just stay calm and slap yourself and say "sorry,articles in dream---life,simply rocks" and again go through this post fully :D.

Enna machi did u see any visaykanth movie recently? naatru patru pongudhu... anyway i am not gonna talk on behalf of other ppl... i am gonna talk only for myself... rite now i am goin to america but i can assure u i will come back to India da... only i know how much i missed India when i was there... more over i realized that my patriotism was much higher there.. i did certain things that i never wud have bothered doing here.. i wore an indian flag like a badge on my ucdavis jersey on 25th jan from 10:30 am there as it was 12:00 am on 26th here.. more over one day when myself and other fellow sap students were passing by a place of some international seminar, many flags were hoisted... an Indian flag was also kept but it was flying upside down.. we went there and inverted it and again set the flag flying properly... i probably wud have just laughed had i seen it in India but there things are different... btw u asked one thing... "do they respect".. oh yes they respect... they may not respect our race, we may be the bloody Indians but they respect our brains.. that is one aspect where we can and should outshine them to be on the top!

nice post.... esp as independence day is nearing... these are questions one should ask themselves before going to a foreign country... i concur with Jag on his thoughts... in california i realized how patriotic i actually was... in India, i also sure wouldnt have cared about things like the inverted flag jag mentioned about which we took the pains of setting right... u get the feeling that u represent India in the country you are in and so take extra that extra bit of effort to act at every situation such that others get to know how great a country your home country is and how proud you are in being an Indian. i personally am going to the US only to get educated (as IISc is probably the only Indian institute of higher learning that has such cutting edge research... and its too difficult for AVERAGE ppl like me to get in...univs in the US are much easier as u dont have to compete with that many fellow Indians :D ...) and come back and bring that research here so that future generations wont have an excuse that i am using (that there isnt much research in India)... chk out the current series in blog for my views on the good parts and bad parts (which are more) of life in the US as opposed to India...

Good one dude...It is pathetic to see some people going behind dollars simply for high profile life and money...Yes it's true that it is little bit tough to get recognition here..Despite that there were people who stayed here and earned their fine share of recognition...Abdul kalam for instance...So stop waging war to get a green card and think for a minute "what you have done for the country which fed you,which gave you shelter and which gave you a life"....
