There was a time when budding professionals and talented young men and women in India used to make a beeline for gaining admission in overseas higher education institutes, especially those situated in European and North American countries. Furthermore, on completion of their studies, they used to settle down in the respective countries where they completed their higher studies. Fortunately this phenomenon of ‘brain-drain’ has now been reversed. Many NRIs and PIOs based abroad are now returning to their homeland. The Indian economy now offers unlimited employment opportunities in almost every commercial or industrial segment. Though often not matching to their educational degree, freshers in India get a beginning and a salary to start their career.
