'The whole process where people get an idea and put together a
team, raise the capital, create a product and mainstream it --
that can only be done in the US. It can't be done sitting in India.
The Indian part of the equation is to help these innovative US
companies bring their products to the market quicker, cheaper
and better, which increases the innovative cycle there. It is a
complementarity we need to enhance.‘

X- CEO, Infosys, quoted in The New York Times.

Translated into plain English, this means 'Indians lack creativity and
cannot come up with the ideas to create and sell a product. Indians
can only do the backend slog work that helps US companies create
and sell their products.‘

“If you are not afraid, you have


probably chosen too easy a
mountain. To be worth the
expedition, it had better be
intimidating. If you don’t stand at
the base uncertain how to reach
the summit, then you have
wasted the effort to get there. A
mountain well within your ability
is not only a misspending of
resources, it is a loss of
opportunity across a life time of
potential achievement.”
