Flight of talent to USA during the last 60 years is more damaging than two Centuries of British colonialism

Educational infrastructure in India was painstakingly built during the British rule. But after Independence, a significant portion of our Professionals migrated to the USA. The calamity wrought by this flight of talent during the last 60 years has been far more damaging than the ill-effects of two Centuries of British colonialism. This trend is likely to reverse with our economy showing signs of taking off. But this whole phenomenon needs to be looked at not only from the economic angle but from a moral viewpoint too. [TNM]
