H-1B visa issue: The great Indian brain drain

June 23, 2020

Narendra Modi’s visit to the US has come and gone. Though it can be termed a success, nothing much of substance has been signed and @Donaldtrump, in his own characteristic unpredictable manner, has not offered anything of value, bare the selling of weapons to India – but not even the ones that India really needs. On top of that, the contentious visa issue for Indian expatriates, particularly the celebrated software engineers, has not been solved. Yet, I do think that this H-1B Visa problem is a blessing in disguise for India.
