SATYA NADELLA MIGHT BE BAD NEWS FOR YOUNG INDIA……. HERE’S WHY


Image

only the third CEO in 38-year-old Microsoft’s lifetime, 47-year-old Satya Nadella is being lauded by the American and Indian press alike.. I am, in fact, sweating a couple of jugs for what Satya’s elevation as Microsoft’s new CEO will amount to in a few weeks.

Here is my biggest grief. Satya Nadella will be used as an example by Indian parents to tell their children that engineering is not dead and can indeed take you places such as the CEO’s chair at Microsoft. At a time when the creative arts need a fillip and our historical heritage as well as cultural mores needs additional modes of expression, this is a dangerous thing.

Wonder what the new CEO will be taking home? According to a recent regulatory filing by Microsoft with the SEC, Nadella’s annual salary has been increased to $1.2 million.

As a professor of journalism at a top Mumbai college, I have had parents come up to me confidentially and tell me that they did not approve of their wards take up subjects as journalism, advertising, PR etc. To them, these are not real streams of education but more of a hobby class that needs to be tolerated for a finite amount of time. Most parents secretly hope their kids will realise their folly and go back to engineering just as they had envisioned. It is only when realisation finally hits that they come and ask me about the prospects in these new fields.

Satya’s bachelor of engineering in electronics and communication degree from Manipal Institute of Technology and MS in Computer Science from the University of Milwaukee-Wisconsin as well as an MBA from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business will be the new benchmark for teenagers hereon.

If only Satya himself had something truly revolutionary with his own career then things might have been a whole lot different. In fact, he could have been the new poster boy of a young India hungry for success across the world. But Satya himself chose to lead a simple and staid life, putting in the years at Microsoft by putting in all his hard work before his elevation to CEO. That is not path-breaking but a routine way of getting to the top.

You could call my analysis baseless paranoia and I would gladly like to be proved wrong but history is a better teacher than we credit it for. When I was studying in the last decade, almost 90 percent of my schoolmates went to engineering colleges after their junior college. Most were just following the family tradition and did not know what to make of their careers while doing engineering.

A good student went to a university in California to study computer science but is now working for his father’s interior design company after dropping out mid-way through the course. A brilliant student went into depression after he could not cope with the accumulated KTs and non-performance and dropped out to take banking exams. They were driven by their parents to emulate another Indian who had made headlines by joining hands with Microsoft to offer a revolutionary email service to the world called Hotmail. His name was Sabeer Bhatia.

The new generation of students have a new talisman to emulate now and his name is Satya Nadella.

Microsoft Surface smartphone could be available in Q1 of 2013


 

ImageEarlier this year, reports indicated that Microsoft may be building its own handset that will run on the forthcoming Windows Phone 8 platform. Microsoft did not confirm or deny the speculation, but a spokesperson stated that Microsoft, together with its hardware partners, was focused on bringing Windows Phone 8 to the market this year. In what may add fuel to these rumours, a report by BGR has indicated that Microsoft may launch its own Windows Phone 8 handset that could be launched within the next few months.   The report states, “Utilizing a strategy much like the one it is using with Windows 8, Microsoft is now looking to have its cake and eat it too in the smartphone market. With a number of high-profile partners like Nokia and Samsung secured for the launch of Windows Phone 8 later this fall, a trusted source informed BGR several weeks ago that Microsoft is quietly working on an own-brand smartphone that will compete directly with high-end devices like Apple’s iPhone 5 and Samsung’s Galaxy S III, and also with Windows Phones built by its own vendor partners, of course.” The report goes on to state that BGR’s source has informed it that the handset is in the late stage of development, and that it will be launched in the coming months. The report also indicates that much like their tablets, this smartphone too will be launched under the Surface brand name. As for the launch period, it is likely that the handset will be available by the first quarter of 2013.  The report ends by noting, “BGR has been unable to confirm the exact timing of the launch, though a second well-placed source did suggest that Microsoft will likely not release an own-brand smartphone during the first round of Windows Phone 8 device launches coming ahead of the holidays this year.”  A recent report by Windows Phone Central also shares the same views on Microsoft unveiling a smartphone, “Information has come forward to Windows Phone Central that demonstrates Microsoft does have their own Windows Phone hardware in the works; in fact, we’ve heard it already exists and is in testing. The source(s) are known to us and not anonymous, though for obvious reasons we must keep them off the record”.  WPCentral speculates the reason behind Microsoft releasing a smartphone, “Sold through Microsoft Store, the devices could fill in a niche for Microsoft while their OEM partners can have the carriers. This would allow Microsoft to have their own “vision” of Windows Phone and a way to update the devices directly, with no one compromising their vision. In addition, their OEMs will mostly be kept “happy” since unlocked phones are not the crux of their business model.”
