Brain Drain - QS Study

Brain drain is a curse. Developing countries cannot provide sufficient facilities. For that reason, the meritorious students go abroad in the hope of better facilities. Consequently developing countries lose a lot To stop their tendency patriotism should be inspired.

Brain drain refers to the tendency among our skilled and educated people to leave the country in search of better employment and opportunities. This is a loss to third world countries like  Somalia, Yemen,  Afghanistan, Liberia,  Sierra Leone,  Zambia etc., where there is scarcity of skilled and talented people. Every year many skilled people like doctors, engineers, teachers and skilled laborers leave their country and settle in the developed countries because those countries offer higher salary and excellent living conditions and other facilities for them. But this tendency brings havoc for those developing countries like Bangladesh from where skilled people are migrating. However, I cannot call it brain drain when some meritorious students go abroad for higher studies. It is brain drain only when they live there permanently because the country is deprived of their services. The services of these meritorious students and skilled people are much required for a country like third world. If they serve their own country, their country’s economic condition will be improved. So brain drain creates a serious problem for the country’s economy. It is a great loss of the country because the country misses their service. There is another side to this matter. The country spends a lot of money on the education of a person. If he goes away, the country does not get any benefit from the investment. Rather the foreign countries get the benefit. However, being a conscious student I do not want to go abroad for higher studies. I want to study in my country and then I want to serve my country. We need qualified teachers, doctors and engineers in the country. However there are many reasons for which the talented people leave the country. The first and foremost reason is the allurement which the developed countries offer. There are other reasons too. Our country sometimes fails to offer them suitable jobs and scopes. The salary is generally poor. Housing is a great problem. Often the security of life is not guaranteed. Some find their merit is not recognized at home. As a result many skilled people leave their motherland and go abroad where they can use their full merit and talent. It is really unfortunate that we cannot utilize our own people when other countries get benefit lotus them So necessary steps should be taken to stop this tendency.
