1: Proud Indians, at home, we are not happy the way the governance, taxes, cost of living are causing concern around.
We at Home, wish you all on the other side of the globe,
Best of Luck & Fortune.

2: Vinod is a one trick pony always referencing Sun which is a non-existent company today. If one does not have the will to stay and build a company a la Google, Oracle, Apple, etc. then stop harping. Remember during dotcom making wild proclamations like the future was optical networking and also only a few years ago about solar? Basically investors in the guise of technologists.

The future was optical networking. And Fiber Optics are indeed the norm now.

4: Padmasree Warrior on the list must be a joke !! Padmasree Warrior along with another joker Ed Zander destroyed Motorola. These are the Ostriches who buried their heads in sand and said what iphone ! what apple !! rather than position Motorola from a good footing from the RAZR strength days. Guess she is busy destroying CISCO with the seamless mobility farce ..as she did at Motorola !!
