Reflection on Annual YIM Meeting:

“It is always great to be an Indian, but now it is great to be in India. I am excited and proud to see YIM Boston catalyzing a radical movement of brain drain to brain gain for India. After all, it is by getting the best of Indian minds back to India that we can create the new India of our dreams.”

Reflection on Annual YIM Meeting:

“Though structural changes will take time to implement, India is taking initiatives to change the way science is administered. We need to bring back much more of our young talent from the US to India if we need to succeed in a long run. Exciting to see the influence of organizations such as YIM Boston to catalyze this brain drain to brain gain for India.”
