These overseas Indians made IT big

January 9 2012: Once a year on Pravasi Bharteeya Divas or Overseas Indian Day, India remembers and recognizes those who have chosen to make a life beyond her shores. That day this year is being observed in Jaipur, with the Prime Minister leading the speaker –list on January 8 and 9. We saw little in this year’s agenda that recognizes the singular contributions made by non-resident Indians to what is now recognized and respected as the Indian brand of Information Technology. So we have decided to make amends.
Choosing half a dozen overseas Indians who have made a mark in the global IT scene is not easy: We recall the most recent contributions of Indians by way of leadership or innovation in some of the biggest infotech companies of the world. As we honour them, we also recall some who have chosen to cap their long careers by taking up voluntary work back home in India.
