Unprecedented Challenges in garnering Proper Human Resource for future Software Development in Nepal

Unprecedented Challenges in garnering Proper Human Resource for future Software Development in Nepal is felt when we read the heart-breaking story of neighborhood India which is leading the world in the profession: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070407/ap_on_hi_te/india_scarce_workers and I , as a field worker in related Industry could not go unnoticed by this article that invites thoughts from any Nepali citizen capable of thinking future of New Nepal into pondering possibilities laid …

Officially, D2HawkeyeServcies has more than 160 Employees. Other Companies range with Employee Count of 30, or 40, or 50, or at most 60 like that and real data is not made public for those exactly involved in software development only.
There are mushrooming engineering colleges and thousands of software training Institutes , and a grim scenario is all are running fine without seemingly losing profits and all filled with students, learners, and trainees. The Article elaborates an example of InfoSys Investments for training People for their company, and similarly about IBM. The cost is multi-million dollars.
Question for everybody is:
Why it costs so much to get a job done or to make an appropriate hire? I am definitely a dumb player in this area, so, thought bloggers can help.
Why there is so much cost involved for good quality, craftsmanship, technicality, skill sets, and productivity? Is it some new theory that we have to produce? as old Capitalist, Communist, Socialist and any other theories fail to govern the current day economics of software Industry, its market, shares, and profits. Frankly, Bill Gates may know that, he produced a book also for letting others earn money, but eventually, looking at human resource scarcity of India makes our heart shudder with future possibilities and realities to be faced. Please note the fact of IIT there in the article about electricity and hardware problems in India.
Isn’t it time that we start revamping structures/methodologies/training from Kindergarten to Engineering institutions for newer future so quality manpower can be produced for competitive future? Otherwise , as the article says, India has billions of educated brains that think about scores/degrees, but, they are striving hard to find good 200,000 who can produce quality work.
Scarcity hits bad when there is no production of suitable human resources for software and technology related Industries.
