It is time for Arabs to take off their hats to Indians! – Saudi Gazette

By Nasser Al-Sarami

To all conceited and arrogant Arabs who take pride in the glorious history of Arab civilization, it is time you took off your hats to Indians after having treated them with discrimination and having looked down upon them for decades.

Indians today run America and the world. While the US imports oil from the Gulf, it imports minds from India. Fifteen percent of start-up companies in Silicon Valley, south of San Francisco which is home to hundreds of technology companies such as Google, Apple, Facebook, etc., are owned by Indians, who, by the way, constitute the largest percentage of immigrants in the San Francisco Bay Area. Their number exceeds that of the British, Chinese, Taiwanese and Japanese combined, who own companies in that area.

Vivek Wadhwa is an entrepreneur who was born in India and holds numerous academic positions at Singularity University, Stanford University and Duke University, all in the United States. In his study, he shows that one-third of start-up companies all over the United States were formed by Indians.
Figures show that Indian-Americans have the largest annual per capita income at $86,135 compared to $51,914 for other Americans. Nowadays, Indians run several mega companies around the world. Indra Krishnamurthy Nooyi is an India-born naturalized American who is currently the chief executive officer of PepsiCo; Ajaypal Singh Banga is the current president and chief executive officer of MasterCard and Anshuman Jain was the former CEO of Deutsche Bank. In fact, you will find many Indian-origin CEOs running technological companies in the US. For example, Pichai Sundararajan is the CEO of Google Inc. while Satya Nadella is the director of Microsoft.
India ranks second in terms of the largest number of management leaders while the United Kingdom, which colonized India for several centuries, comes third on the list. The United States is first.
