Debate on Brain Drain is Not a Bane for a Developing Country Like India

‘Brain drain is not a bane for a developing country like India’. Write a debate in 150-200 words either for or against the motion.

Respected Chairperson, Honourable Members of the Jury and my worthy opponents. Good morning to you all.

Today I, Meera, stand before you to speak for the motion. Having more and more money is the tendency inherent in every person in India. Most often we migrate to other countries either to study further or earn money. In this regard, I can firmly say that intelligent people drifting away abroad to find better opportunities is definitely not a boon for India.

The developing India has become a hub for IT industries. Cities like Hyderabad, Bangalore, Chennai and Gurgaon are providing ample opportunities to the deserving people with good salary packages.

With so many lucrative opportunities presented in a platter, Indians must consider staying and working in India and help it progress faster.

One of the biggest reasons why brain drain is not good for developing countries, such as India is that it benefits the foreign countries. Besides loss of talent, it is also a national loss because of expenses incurred on a brilliant student’s education. Whenever the retrenchment starts in foreign countries, the Indians are at the forefront. They also treat us as second rate citizens. Therefore, foreign jobs may pay a lot of money but there is not always respect in them. In conclusion, in a country like India, where cultural values are of utmost importance, Brain Drain sometimes also leads to the erosion of same cultural values. Needless to say, Brain Drain is a bane for developing countries.

Thank you
