I’m An India Optimist: Satya Nadella
As per the reports, Satya Nadella may cancel his planned India trip over his "sad, bad" comments on CAA. Microsoft’s CEO courted a fresh controversy suggesting it was "narrow".
However, Nadella has expressed optimism for India. Even though he warned that countries that are not immigrant-friendly would likely miss out on the global technical boom.
Nadella said, "Governments should maintain that modicum of enlightenment and not think about it very narrowly."
"The fact that there is a 70-year history of nation-building, it’s a very strong foundation. I grew up in that country. I am proud of that heritage. I am influenced by that experience." Nadella added. He remained hopeful about the land of his birth.
Reports suggest that he may cancel his scheduled trip to India following a sharp reaction to his previous comments on the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).
Nadella is also the first Indian American tech honcho to comment on the controversial act. As the comment evoked a sharp reaction in India, Microsoft issued a more nuanced statement on his behalf.
