Can we ever reverse the BRAIN DRAIN trend? I am afraid, it is a bit too late…or is there still hope? You tell me.
“I challenge you to take personal ownership over the well-being of your fellow countrymen. If you can do this and do it well, I can guarantee you that the material benefits will follow,” (PERAK’s Raja Nazrin said here)
I don’t think anyone buys this anymore. Besides material benefits are not the be all and end all. That’s what the government’s propaganda machines would like us to believe. People leave for many reasons – for their sanity, their dignity, not to feel second class in their supposedly own country, and for some sense of freedom and peace from political, racial and religious bigots now colonialising and destroying Malaysia!
Of course, bigots exist, thrive and reproduce everywhere. But it’s one thing to experience it in a foreign country, but quite another, and the feeling is worst, too see it in your own country. It sucks your blood, depletes your soul until you do not want any part of it…
