Stay in India!

Business Line and Times report that Sanjiv Sharma, Managing Director of Nokia India quit Nokia after he was asked to move to Singapore. I liked the spirit!!

Signals coming from top corporate people is really cool. I am surprised why Nokia didn’t work out with him. I am sure there were internal problems. A few quotes from the articles:

“I had taken a decision that I would like to remain in India and contribute to the country’s growth story. India’s economy is hot and it is here where the action is. It doesn’t make much sense professionally for me to move out of the country at this point of time,” Mr Sharma told Business Line.

“It is time that big companies begin to understand India’s importance and start treating it as a hub by creating bigger, regional responsibilities for executives based out of here,”said an industry official, who did not want to identified.

“Lot of product innovations are happening here and it doesn’t make sense for people with understanding of the Indian market to move out and lose touch,”he added.

    Nice to see you post about stuff like this – straight from my heart too! I love India, always have. There are so many things I’d love to have changed, there are so so many things that totally sicken me. But at the end of the day, am an Indian & proud of it.

    Hope you’re doing fine! Drop me a line sometimes!


    PS: Read on Vijay’s blog only right now about the meet up a few days ago, did ya go?
