|It is a matter to think that why people choose to leave India when it is growing , flourishing. The major thing I observed is the corruption, no honour for talent, no proper decisions and injustice at the hands of bureaucrats and the politicians.

|Its an interesting topic - I think there are too many variables involved in this subject - one could write a PhD thesis...
my 2 cents: I think you made a very general statement about Indian growing & flourishing - what exactly is india flourishing at? - we are nothing but modern-day servants to a first-world country/countries - we serve their needs - by writing applications, providing customer service, doing medical transcription etc..
Consider this: Should America or western Europe / Australia etc decided they no longer need our services - we will wiped out of the map -instantly.
A first world country -is one that is being "served" - they are at the table - dining, laughing, telling jokes, having a merry time - we are in the kitchen preparing & serving their food.
Until India works on establishing its own infrastructure -be it IT, transportation, supporting local-business development/entrepreneurship - services & products for Indians - which in turn provide jobs that serve indians - the current economy is now a borrowed economy.
One only needs to glimpse through history from ancient Babylonian times to roman empire to British era - and even modern-day imperialism by western society - they all cater to THEIR CITIZENS - they import more than they export (with exception to japan)-that is a sign of a first-world country.
India exports its talent, resources and imports junk like Hollywood-hypes, sexual-promiscuity etc..
That needs to change for India to TRULY prosper and raise in absolute status (as opposed to a relative status -oh! yeah we are economically better than Pakistan & Mongolia - that's no reason to celebrate)
And as for NRI's moving back to India - some of us would - others think about prospects for their children - which to be honest are not many - I know a cousin of mine complained that when in india - her kid's drawing were considered as "Pichi gethalu" (telugu-loosely translated - random lines) - here they nourished her talent and encouraged it - in india talent is thrown out the window.
Anyways, I could go on & on - I think India needs to start serving its own people First -and second establish and retain "law & order" - equality -whether you are a teacher's son or a MP's son - and programs to bring out (not only exceptional talent) all kinds of talents from kids and make a better future of entreprenuers, artists, non-profit workers - where money is not the end-goal of the game - but the pursuit of happiness.
As they say here - life, liberty & pursuit of happiness - in India it seems like we pursue career, money & status....
That's my take.
