Brain drain

I was at a felicitation function for some class 10 and 12 students. The three speakers who were talking about career options had one main theme running through the whole evening. They wanted these kids to study hard and go abroad. It is interesting how we equate brains and success with going abroad. Yes, I am aware that a lot of professionals ( more than ever before anyway) are coming back to India. Yet, going abroad is looked upon as the ultimate feather in the cap. Admission to a foreign university or a posting in another country is regarded as the ultimate accolade. A true case of home made chicken being equal to lentils...... "ghar ki murgi daal barabar". And this even when we talk of India Shining.
Then we talk of brain drain.....
