BRAIN DRAIN

download (1)We recognize Indian born talent only after the world acknowledges it. This happened in the case of Satya Nadella also. Even the Nobel laureate Satyarthi’s work was acknowledged only after he received the Nobel. I agree that not recognizing talent is one of the main reasons for the brain drain from India. No wonder there are 3.5 lakh doctors of Indian origin settled in the US when we are facing a shortage of good doctors.

Most schools/teachers consider students as mark producing machines. Our education system encourages reproducing whatever is memorized without giving any scope for innovation, and a child’s intelligence is judged by marks alone. We should develop an education system where leadership qualities, entrepreneurship and rational thinking is encouraged at the school level. Teachers who are well-trained and with high integrity and commitment should be appointed purely on the basis of merit. Special teachers training institutes on the lines of the IIMs should be set up. A more meaningful and practical examination system should be evaluated and implemented. Political interference in the education system should be minimized and the government should discourage educational institutes owned by powerful politicians and ministers

However, the culture of brain drain that had taken India by storm in the 90s .Well settled NRIs are getting back to their roots and investing in startups to make things easier back home.
As , An institute is graded on multiple parameters such as prevalence of infrastructure, staff training, student learning and register activities, and presented with a grade, or in India a cumulative grade point average out of four. Being a reverse trend these days the higher the grade or grade-point average, the better for the college and its students. While there is no dearth of autonomous bodies in India that dole out merit, the National Assessment and Accreditation Council or NAAC under the University Grants Commission (UGC) of India is the most sought after organization.

According to a recent report by LinkedIn that analyzed global migration trends among professionals, India ended 2014 with 0.23% fewer workers than the beginning of the year. This represents the biggest loss seen in any country it tracked. Remuneration perks and other facilities provided to scientists working in India are not comparable with those working abroad as various conditions that govern the compensation packages are not identical.
Half of the Indians who left the country found jobs in technology companies abroad, and most of them ended up in the US.
India still faces crucial challenges to establishing a sustainable ecosystem that can take root and improve lives there. There is a serious brain drain problem, with many of the best and brightest moving to the U.S. for better opportunities: Pachai and Nadella are good cases in point. The Indian economy also continues to lag behind due to corruption and inequality related problems. While mobile phones may be skyrocketing, many still don’t have access to clean water, and most techs still remains relevant only to the privileged few.

Thankfully, there are some rays of hope for aspiring Indian tech entrepreneurs. As leaders like Pachai and Nadella gain valuable experience in places like Silicon Valley, others like them can return to India to found successful companies to help grow the industry. The country’s higher education system is the backbone for producing more success stories like Pachai who can lead massive companies and influential startups. It is also India’s greatest hope for the future.
But, We must take in account that Sundar Pichai and others have come up despite obstacles; they have realised their dreams through tenacious efforts and resolute perseverance. Our analysis of their victory must incorporate enablers of the educational systems they went through. We must change our business models and become fully professional, infusing talented people and conceding their competence. We must be sensitive to the facts instead of becoming sentimental
