Nepal brawn and brain drain

Sharing this NYT article on this issue.

Implode might be a better word choice than explode…with inflation rates like now at over 15%, we will implode, not explode, and in imploding it will likely effect every strata of society, the damages going deeply inward, not outward (as happens in an explosion).

Recently I read that a whole village has been dubbed and officially made into a “labor village” to expedite the process of going to countries like Saudi Arabia.
