We are living in a globalised world where the boundaries have become blur and mixture of cultures has led way to new way of thinking. With this, more and more people tend to move abroad for either study or work purposes. This has brought a new sense of connection between the different countries of the world. However, it has also led to the fading of the originality of a place.
Living or studying abroad, brings with it, its own advantages. Firstly, a person becomes more acquainted with the world picture. For instance, a student who pursues his studies in abroad, gets to meet people from various cultures. This brings at home great knowledge which will stick with him or her throughout his or life. Secondly, the feeling of unity gets reignited. No matter, how many boundaries have been made, humans are very much similar. This shuffling, if done with harmony, can create an environment where people with different approaches can live together and may be create something unique.
On the other hand, this movement has often lead to some serious issues as well. Like, USA has been regarded as the technology hub of the world, and due to this reason mostly talented people flock to it, leaving behind a country which needs them. Even more, often times this creates a feeling of congestion in a country. Studying abroad brings with it various new things. But if done incorrectly, it could turn out to be a disaster for the student. For example- the scholarship may turn out false, the course may be tough for the student or the climatic situation creates irritation.
Overall, in my opinion, although there is no issue in shifting to a new country, but if done just because others are doing, it could turn out to be nightmare. Also, sticking to the roots and doing something for one’s own country always brings more sense of pride.
