‘I did dream of being a cricketer!’ Google chief Pichai tells students he grew up idolising Gavaskar.

New Delhi: A major controversy has erupted after Google CEO Sunder Pichai announced possibility of naming of the next Android version on an Indian sweet.“My Class XII score was not enough to get me admission in SRCC”, said Google CEO Sundar Pichai on being asked about his academics, during an interactive session at Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) in Delhi University on Thursday.Describing himself as a huge fan of cricket, technology giant Google’s chief Sundar Pichai said on Thursday that he wanted to be a cricketer in his childhood, and looked up to legends like Sunil Gavaskar in his growing years. At Kolkata, big damage was reported to public property as TMC workers supported by Mamta Banerjee hit the streets immediately after the Pichai announcement demanding that the new Android version be named Chumchum. “It has to be Peda, the Bihari sweet eaten by most including OBC and scheduled castes which constitute a large part of Indian population”, Lalu told reporters at Patna in his inimitable style, “Rabri bhi achcha choice hai“, he added with glee in his eyes for obvious reasons. “Peda is acceptable to us but it has to be Mathura ka Peda and not Peda from Bihar or any other place” Krishna Murari announced from Mathura as he took out a procession of 50,000 supporters. “No other name is acceptable under any circumstances.

The executive, who is on his maiden visit to India after taking over as the CEO of Google in August, took out time to play cricket at India Gate with a few local residents. The India-born executive, who took over as head of one of the world’s largest tech companies in August, also emphasised on the need to encourage creativity and experiential learning as part of the Indian education system. “We are working very hard to bring everything (all its products to India). After naming its Android versions lollipop, kit-kat, ice-cream sandwich and jellybean, Google might name the future generation of Androids after the names of Indian desserts, says Mr.

Citing the example of ‘YouTube Offline’, he said the service was first launched in India and then taken to 77 countries. “So we see that as a good template… we are investing a lot in India. Elsewhere, across India, various groups have come out in support of Rasmalai, Adhirasam, Mysore- Pak, Sewaiyan, Gajrela, Payasam, Dhodha, Phirni and Kulfi. From things like what he would have been if not the Google CEO and what kind of work place Google is, to when he bought his first smartphone, he answered it all. “Google is a really fun place to work. It is also important to teach students to take risks,” he said. “I would encourage you to work with people you are insecure with because that means you are working with people who are better than you. Over the years, Pichai has developed a liking for soccer and closely follows the game of Spanish club FC Barcelona and its Argentinian player Lionel Messi. “It is easier to follow the sport overseas” he said.

Pichai said the tech giant might conduct an online poll while naming its future androids. “And if all Indians vote, I think we can make [an Indian name] it happen,” he said. In the US, numbers have 10 digits and I store them on my smartphone,” said Pichai, whose first phone was Motorola Starc in 1994-95. “I bought my first smartphone in 2006. Pichai answered questions by students from various schools and colleges, gathered at the indoor sports stadium of SRCC college, which was packed to capacity.

On the way forward for Google in the next 30 years, Pichai said he was hopeful that the company would still be working on products to solve problems for the whole of humanity. Pichai said it took some time for him realize the power of Internet when it first arrived. “Later, it became obvious to me that the Internet would connect humanity and would have a profound influence on the lives of many,” he said. The event that was organised in SRCC in association with Google saw a huge response from students who gathered from around 10 schools in the Capital and some DU colleges, including the technical colleges. Pichai believes that India has always had an entrepreneurial streak. “I would see a tea seller in an odd place and would think that there was an opportunity and this guy took it,” Pichai said as he advised the students to follow their dreams and their hearts. “It is worthwhile trying to take risks.
