OPINION: “Who’s in charge of the world?” – PM Modi of India explains his view

The following exchange did not occur… It is here to outline an interesting observation:

……. Think!…

Trump, Putin and Xi were arguing on who’s in charge of the world. US, Russia or China?

Without any conclusion, they turned to PM Modi of India and asked him “Who’s in charge of the world?”

Modi replied: All I know is :- 

  1. Google CEO is an Indian
  1. Microsoft CEO is an Indian

  1. Citigroup CEO was an Indian
  1. SoftBank Vision Fund CEO is an Indian
  1. Adobe CEO is an Indian
  1. NetApp CEO is an Indian
  1. PepsiCo CEO was an Indian
  1. Nokia CEO is an Indian
  1. MasterCard CEO is an Indian
  1. DBS CEO is an Indian
  1. Cognizant CEO was an Indian
  1. Novartis CEO is an Indian
  1. Conduent CEO was an Indian
  1. Diageo CEO is an Indian
  1. SanDisk CEO was an Indian
  1. Motorola CEO was an Indian
  1. Harman CEO is an Indian
  1. Micron CEO is an Indian
  1. Palo Alto Networks CEO is an Indian
  1. Reckitt Benckiser CEO is an Indian
  1. Now IBM CEO is also an Indian origin guy
  1. Britain’s Chancellor is an Indian
  1.  Britain’s Home Secretary is an Indian
  1.  Ireland’s Prime minister is an Indian.

So who’s running the World? or at least involved in high technology and management…

Very interesting!

That is the result of India policy since early 1950’s to focus on education.

      This entry was to highlight the fact that India had established a network of high-tech training schools in the 1950’s. Their graduates work for the computer and related companies in the USA and Europe.
      There were others mentioned like the British Chancellor and Home Secretary an Chancellor as well as the Irish Prime Minister.- born and educated in India.

      The names you mention here do not fit this category.

      Who is interested in what that disgusting man modi has to say? What he says is irrelevant! He allows Muslims to he murdered in India and does not do anything about it.

    It’s a fictitious “discussion” with the facts as outlined “attributed” to Modi..as representing India. Yes, as has been noted the IITs have been established in India by legislation in 1961..about the same time as the Brits established Polytechnical Universities. But note that it is IBM that took advantage of the opportunity to offshore its work in a country with a strong historical background in the Sciences and Math…providing training as early as the 1960s and shifting most of its work there. (It comes cheaper). None of this brilliance is just India’s to claim. What it did was to provide the climate, cultural interest, history and work attitudes to take advantage of IBM’s considerable investments. It’s a noteworthy accomplishment for India to have reached such a prominent place in the management of large international companies. But don’t forget it also requires business capacity and training..which the wealthy Indian families would have given their heirs. But there’s brilliance everywhere. India has its poverty, its social ills and even climate related issues. Corruption is not foreign to its shores. But the USA still has a major control of research and innovation locked up. I don’t begrudge the accomplishments of racial groups..while some play, others work. And work I learned in London, England is “apply the seat of the pants to the seat of the chair”. I might add that China had a strategy of allowing foreign companies looking for a cheap workforce, to shift production offshore under a 51/49% sharing agreement. Once the Chinese got the hang of the matter, they shifted that balance in the other direction. With better knowledge of marketing to their own consumers, they then started competitive rivalry to the very same foreign companies within their borders. Now in a short matter of 40 years, they’re an established world power, far outstripping India in their reach and capacity. Africa is building up slowly but is divided into many jurisdictions and cultures. In many areas they are displaying their own ingenuity and capacity for growth.
