‘N’ever ‘R’ecognised ‘I’ndians
30/11/2006

The role of the Overseas Chinese in Chinese miracle can never be underestimated given the fact that more than 65% of China’s Foreign Direct Investment has been attributed to them. Can India also attain parallel heights? Cap Gemini & Merrill Lynch 2004 World Wealth report estimates the NRI community’s total investable surplus to be $360 billion. Conservative estimates have valued the net worth of the NRIs to be not less then $500 billion. These are precisely those people that felt let down by India’s restrictive licensing policies. Kicked by the system, they have struck gold in their adopted homes. No wonder that nearly half of the Silicon Valley companies were started by Indians who had migrated there. And no wonder that the world’s largest steel producer is a person of Indian origin and Britain’s top ten richest people have five NRIs in the list.

Not only China, even Israel draws huge strength from the highly influential Jewish lobby in US. It is high time that we acknowledge Non Resident Indian’s contribution in increasing India’s respect globally, as also their phenomenal achievements worldwide. For forty years, the much criticised brain drain has sapped India of her strength. Someone said it right that it is better to have a brain drain than to have a brain in the drain. Now, it is time to bring our best brains back... lest it should be too late.
