Brain drain

The initiative was aimed at contemplating the issue of brain drain and also to encourage Indians studying and working abroad to return and invest their talent and resources for the betterment of the nation and people. The campaign kicked off on Sunday at Express Avenue Mall with over 60 students of C.E.G’s Kurukshetra 2012 team who made their presence felt by singing various patriotic anthems.

During the course of the day, BIG FM’s RJ Ophelia, better known as Imsai Arasi and Dr. Kamala Selvaraj, Director of GG Hospitals, enlightened the audience on how the society we live in is as important to us as we are to it by recounting their personal experiences and choices. Later in the evening, lyricist and professor Dr. Madhan Karky encouraged students to follow their dreams and expressed his faith that their dreams would be for the betterment of the country. Singer Chinmayi also shared her views on the issue and enthralled the crowd with a song. A flash mob at the venue and a variety show by Spartanz ended the event on a high note.


The students of the organising committee said that they saw an unusually large number of Indian companies, which worked for foreign clients, during the campus placement. This made them realise the diabolic extent of brain drain in the country and the lakhs of skilled students who have been lost over the years. Chitty Babu, Chairman & C.E.O, of Akshaya Homes, and added, “When our country offers the best facilities of education and jobs, why work elsewhere?” The Kurukshetra 2012 team plans to visit 250 colleges across the country for their signature campaign in the next month and encourage students to sign the pledge of studying and working in India and ultimately bring about the change the country deserves.
