Cover StoryA few years back, if you were an Indian in the SFO airport, people easily assumed that you were related to the IT export business. That is how the accepted norm was earlier. Yes, Indians have proved themselves that they are good in outsourcing services business. Today what I have observed from the conversations with Fortune 500 CXOs is that the “Services” tag which we got about a decade back is fading away and Indians are now the toast of Silicon Valley for building several path breaking product companies in ground breaking technologies, proving themselves to become the best in the product business.
