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

Good morning, respected judges and the esteemed audience, I would like to speak against the motion – ‘Brain Drain is not a bane for a developing country like India’.

Brain Drain is a major problem of India that has been harmful to the country. Brain drain means the intelligent minds that do not get desirable jobs or recognition in their own country thus they migrate to other countries for better prospective where they are provided with favorable working conditions. They prove their intelligence there and are recognized throughout the world. They also become the pride of the country. Every year a large number of people go abroad either for acquiring higher studies or getting good jobs. It is because their worth and intelligence is not acknowledged aptly in the country. Sometimes, the most brilliant people also leave India and prefer to stay in a well-developed country like America, England, Canada, etc. This is the most common thing in India as compared to other countries as the companies over here fail to provide necessary working conditions and acceptable salaries to their own countrymen.

But the question arises what if they show their worth in their own country? How can they be stopped from migrating or persuaded to return to India?

It is a matter of serious concern for the government of India because it is a complete loss for India. The professional training that the students receive in India and for which the government spends lakhs of rupees, goes waste; plus it is a gain for receiving countries. They can be attracted to India if the conditions here are altered to their liking; if the merit and talent is given due consideration. Therefore, sincere efforts are required to bring them back by offering jobs according to their caliber, so as to make the country more efficient in all fields.

Thank you.
