Brain Drain to Brain Circulation: In Indian Context

Jeetendra Soni, Government Degree College, Syalde (Almora)

In this era of globalization, high skilled workers are moving freely and trapping the global opportunities. This new dimension of international migration is passing through an experience of Brain Drain and then followed by Brain Circulation in many parts of the globe. The international perspective of application of regional development theories is also suggesting the similar process. In many parts of the world, brain drain is followed by brain circulation as talented immigrants return to their homeland with technology, capital, managerial and institutional know-how, to harness promising opportunities. Such evidences are already emerging in India (Annalee Saxenian). From 1960s a strong wave of well-educated and professionally competent immigrants from India, started moving towards the industrially advanced countries. But now in every field of technology, returning emigrant Indian technocrats and scientists are taking India into the forefronts of technological innovations. For sustaining this process India has to create opportunities at home.
