Dive In

The culture here is one of success based upon academic excellence, studying, learning, practising and having a good job and a great life. For upper India, not the lower. I see two Indias. That’s a lot like Singapore study, study, work hard and you get an MBA, you will have a Mercedes but where is the creativity? The creativity gets left out when your behaviour is too predictable and structured, everyone is similar. Look at a small country like New Zealand, the writers, singers, athletes, it’s a whole different world.

That’s former Apple founder and Silicon Valley legend Steve Wozniak’s answer as to why India is unlikely to ever produce a global tech company. It is part of a must-read long-ranging interview where he speaks about his early days with Steve Jobs, coding for kids and Elon Musk.

Big Story

A great tragedy in Tigray
