. Brain drain depends on a variety of factors, but broadly speaking, better opportunities abroad, better living condition and better prospects lure people. Every year thousands of highly qualified doctors, engineers, scientists and other intellectuals leave India and migrate to foreign countries. They generally go to USA, UK, Canada, West Germany, Singapore etc for monetary gains and facilities for higher research. Most of the IIT-ians who went to US for higher studies did not return to India. After seeing and experiencing the affluent life they do not want to return. A statistics shows that Indian Americans are the fastest growing ethnic group (up 106% in the 1990s), now estimated at almost 3 million. They constitute the richest and best-educated ethnic group, wielding clout disproportionate to their numbers. More than 100,000 Indians study in the US, many of whom will stay and swell the Diaspora’s size and influence. The students who are passing out from AIIMS also prefer greener pastures. Some become very famous in countries where they settle if they are really dedicated and excellent in their profession. This is good for our country as people get to know that our doctors are as good as their peers in other countries. Thus people flock to our country to get treatment as it is cheaper also. The same way our talented engineers also do not lag behind. Because of them we earn foreign exchange moneysmileyas many countries prefer outsourcing their job to our country.
