The External Affairs Minister of India explains the reverse brain drain

In the recent podcast of The Ranveer Show, a famous lifestyle YouTuber and the host Ranveer Allahbadiya invited Dr. Subramaniam Jaishankar. The podcast turned into an interview where Ranveer asked very imperative questions about the government’s agendas for Indian youth and Dr.S. Jaishankar answered them with clarity. One of the questions highlighted the concept of brain drain in India, and Dr. Jaishankar briefly explained it with a theory of reverse brain drain.

Substantial immigration or migration of individuals or talents is called Brain drain which leads to losing a country’s valuable asset. Many Indian talents left the country since they found better opportunities abroad.

But, “The world is no more the way it was 10 to 15 years ago. If you had left the country for an opportunity, you can come back and settle down in India again.” said External Affairs Min Dr. S. Jaishankar during the podcast. It can be denominated a “reverse brain drain”.

He also stated that “Silicon Valley is much more interested in valleys in India,” which suggests that businesses in Silicon Valley are looking for talent and business opportunities in India such as Apple.

Big businesses in India are also planning to invest a little more in India instead of abroad. This assures betterment in terms of employment and new opportunities for youth in India.

Imperative initiatives of the Indian government

Just like a warrior with a sword is nothing without expertise, youth with qualifications are nothing without skills. The government of India understands the importance of the youth that leads some imperative initiatives such as the Skill India Mission which aims to train 400 million youth in training different skills, Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana to encourage the youth with monetary rewards and certifications, Startup India, Atal Innovation Mission, Digital India, etc,

In 2020, Indian e-Governence introduced YUVAi (Youth for Unnati and Vikas with AAIprogram). To foster a deep understanding of AI in the south of India, Indian Government has taken the initiative.
