US First Lady sells STUDY ABROAD… what a contrast to Indian leaders who consider this as “brain drain”…

In March, the First Lady Michelle Obama spoke to American and Chinese students at the Stanford Center at Peking University on the importance of studying abroad.

When I hear her spell out the advantages for American students to venture out… I could not help but be reminded of what Indian current PM had stated regarding Indian students travelling overseas. This was about six months ago in one of his speeches.

We lost our intellectual capital and also our monetary capital..! Can’t the Indian Government arrange that the youth gets good education in India, they do not have to roam here and there..?

Interestingly, the first PM from Gujarat, Late Morarji Desai, too had similar thoughts as he indicated in one of his messages to my senior colleague (Mr Paul Chellakumar)…
