I believe I would get a support of many when I make the statement that it gives us a sense of proud when a fellow citizen of our country achieves something big abroad.  An inspiration for many to aspire and dream big but also giving us a pan image.  Here, we are talking about another such individual who made it to news across the globe when he was declared the new CEO of Microsoft.  Earlier, whenever we heard or talked about Microsoft only one name came up on our minds, Bill Gates, but now we could proudly say that an Indian is leading one of the biggest IT giants in US and across the globe.


Coming back to Satya Nadella, I read a very interesting interview of his in which he said that he may be defined by his curiosity and thirst for learning.  He buys more books than he can finish.  He has signed for more online courses than he can complete.  He fundamentally believes that if you are not learning new things, you stop doing great and useful things.  I was really impressed and convinced that great thinking only makes great individuals.

To know a little more about him, he was born in Hyderabad, India.  His father was an IAS officer.  He went to Hyderabad Public School before attaining a bachelor of engineering in Electronics and Communication degree from Manipal Institute of Technology.  After moving to the US, Nadella earned an MS in Computer Science from the University of Wisconsin and an MBA from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.  Nadella worked with Sun Microsystems, as a member of its technology staff, prior to joining Microsoft in 1992.  In Microsoft he led the major projects including the company's move to the cloud computing and the development of one of the largest cloud infrastructures in the world.  He worked as the senior vice-president of research and development for the Online Services Division and vice-president of the Microsoft Business Division.  Later, he was made the president of Microsoft's $19 billion Server and Tools Business and led a transformation of the company's business and technology culture from client services to cloud infrastructure and services.  He has been credited for helping bring Microsoft's database, Windows Server and developer tools to its Azure cloud.   He is married to Anupama, daughter of his father's IAS batchmate.  They have three children, a son and two daughters, and live in Bellevue, Washington.  He is an avid reader of American and Indian poetry and is fond of the game of Cricket.

I congratulate this achiever and hope that he be an idol for many aspirants.  I would also like to mention that following the thought process of such achievers also gives us a high and would like to see many more of our fellow citizens abroad or back home achieve big and make our country proud.
