Gimmicks wonít do

I am a former IITian and attended the Pan IIT conference (Paribartan poser and Singur slap, December 9). It is impossible for us to invest here. From the chief ministerís speech, it was not clear whether there is any agenda for the growth of this state.

Nor was it clear whether the government has identified the problem areas plaguing the state and their solutions.

Mere gimmicks will not satisfy the golden brains.

The chief minister should have arranged for a platform to identify the shortcomings of the state and listen to the best brains of the world discuss the solutions to the problems.

Thanks a million to The Telegraph for presenting the PanIIT Global Conference. This pioneering effort of bringing together leaders from various fields on one platform has added immense value to the city.

I request IITians to make India a self-reliant country by developing its technological base by knowledge acquired in the West. The country is on the threshold of economic and technological emancipation. They can join hands with the thousands of young men and women who are trying to make an impact in this country.

The financial loss incurred by the country because of brain drain is enormous. Let the country not bleed further. I give a call for reverse brain drain.
