Are IITians not contributing or are we NOT allowing them to contribute?

The news of three IIT graduates getting placed in google with salary package of 92 lakh rupees is perhaps the talk of the country. What is particularly distressing to me is that, the talent has been brought into lime light only because a foreign company has hired them and has offered a huge package. By merely talking of it, we are only welcoming the foreigners to harness and exploiting our domestic talents. Our acts of celebrating such an incident is in paradox to the majority opinion that IITians do not contribute to the nation. The fact is, we do not recognize our own talents and hence the talented people go to places where they are recognized.
