How it all started?
It was January 14, 2011, Sunday morning , I along with Dr. Bharat Barai and Prashant Shah visited at that time Chief Minister of Gujarat, Narendra Modi (Now Prime Minister Of India) at his house in Gandhinagar. Dr. Barai introduces me as an industrialist in USA as some one acquired and operated number of industries and businesses , most of them turn around who saved industries and created jobs.
Prime Minister in his own unique style asks me "Hathibhai, you did all this work for America, what did you do for my Gujarat? Remember, we, Gujarat paid for your engineering education" For me answer was difficult… I fumbled and answered "That is the reason I am here" I told my this experienced to our BVM Engineering College alumni during a party. Most of them are retired highly experienced and educated engineers worked all their life in various industries in USA. There was and overwhelming response to do something for Gujarat and India.

Brain drain becomes Trained brain
During sixties and 70s US adopted a policy where it would allow only certain type of qualified immigrants to migrate in US such as engineers, doctors, scientists etc. India since independence went rapidly established colleges and universities and started educating its masses. Every year thousands of engineers graduated from various colleges.
Number of them matched with US policy and started migrating to US. It was also known as "Brain Drain Policy" India being democracy, even government of India did not like their "Brain being drained" however could not do anything. Thousands and thousands of highly qualified engineers and doctors migrated to USA from India. At the same time, US welcomed all of us, gave opportunity to young newly educated engineers in large industries such as IBM, Ford, Dow, P&G. Exxon and list goes on and on.
Now, it's a time For Brain Gaining, Not Brain Draining!
As years passed this group of professionals became well experienced and a major force in many industries achieving very high corporate positions. Now all of the "Drained Brain" became "Trained Brain" Most of them now pushing their retirements and baby boomers,looking forward to give something back to India, their mother land.
