Apple Co-founder Said India Lacks Creativity, Got A Befitting Reply From Anand Mahindra

Published on 2 March, 2018 at 9:48 am By

Popularly known as Woz in the tech world, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak came up with an insensitive statement at the ET Global Business Summit in New Delhi. Talking about Indian culture and progress, Woz said that he doesn’t see any big advances in the Indian tech companies. He also expressed that India lacks creativity as India’s work culture is just about studying and getting a good job to earn good money.

When asked about his views on India with respect to the emergence of global tech force, Woz said,

“I am not an anthropologist and I don’t know the culture of India well enough. I don’t see those big advances in tech companies. What is the biggest tech company here, Infosys maybe? I just don’t see that sort of thing coming out of Infosys and I have done keynotes for them three times.”

 

He further added,

“The culture here is one of success based upon academic excellence, studying, learning, practicing and having a good job and a great life. For upper India, not the lower. I see two India(s). 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.”

Wozniak’s statement didn’t go well with people of our nation. His views soon went viral on the internet and received a huge backlash.

One of those who gave a befitting reply to Woz’s stereotypical statement is the Chairman of Mahindra Group, Anand Mahindra. He asked Woz to visit India again as he wants people to prove him wrong.

 

Here’s what he tweeted:

Just like Anand Mahindra, there are many who are not satisfied with Wozniak’s thoughts about India. Here’s how people slammed him for his views.
