Brain Drain

15 bright students of Indian origin, sitting in a small room in one of the biggest university of USA. Any guesses what they were doing in there?

Discussing the economy? No
Celebrating the rise of India? No
Talking over the rising oil prices? No

They were concerned about the lack of interest of poor dalit children in education. They were discussing how to support a group to take initiative and teach those children in their own homes. These students were discussing the living conditions of the poor people in one of the small village of West Bengal.

I have been hearing about brain drain since I joined IIT Kharagpur. It was hard to convince people that even after coming out of country, people do think about India. A small meeting yesterday evening bolstered my belief in indian brain's worry about their country.

if they are really worried so much, then why don't they come to India and do something about it?

that was the point .... if staying in India is the only thing that would help then there are far more people staying in india ... however they are here pursuing their dreams at the same time they haven't forgotten their roots and the issues back there. They are spreading the concern for the cause and also helping people out there to make things better!!
