Brian Drain in India: Problems and Prospective
Department of Studies in Sociology, University of Mysore, Mysore, India.
After completing their education in India, people often leave for foreign countries in search of better working environment and pay package on account of unemployment. This concept of taking education in a country but earning for another is known as brain drain. Asian countries have been a victim of such concept since the west opened up job opportunities s for eastern countries. The opportunities inside the country suddenly seem small and worthless in front of the starry image of the west. More than anything else, better lifestyle and a developed country name to flaunt, has lead people into migrating their working areas from their native place to a western country. After all, everyone is Human, more interested in his self interest. If those in power do not recognise the value of merit, then this trickle of a drain will become a torrent. Other countries would welcome this Brain drain only to suit their own interests.
