Markandey Katju : In my speech at IIT, Bombay yesterday, among the things I said was :
“You IIT students have no genuine love for the country. You are utterly selfish, with no patriotism or idealism. All you want is to migrate to America ( and most of you manage to do that ), usually by first going for an M.Tech. degree there ( for which you get scholarship ), and then settling down there and enjoying a comfortable life– and to hell with India, Your education in IIT is largely subsidized by the Indian taxpayer.
But after we Indians pay for your education, you are taken away by America ( or Europe) who benefit from your technical knowledge, which was imparted by us. Higher education is very expensive in the West. So at a small fraction of the cost of educating you in their own country, the Westerners take away our best brains. That is no doubt a considerable saving for them, though no doubt at our expense. And after settling down in America, you will become NRIs— supercilious know-alls, who will give lectures to Indians about what is good for them and what is not.”
