A true Indian at heart, Satya loves to play cricket and takes it with all seriousness. He played on his school team  and discovered some useful skills while having fun.

I think playing cricket taught me more about working in teams and leadership that has stayed with me throughout my career.”

  Competing with his affection for cricket is his love for poetry and reading books. His interests lie mainly in American as well as Indian poetry.       

It’s like code, You’re trying to take something that can be described in many, many sentences and pages of prose, but you can convert it into a couple lines of poetry and you still get the essence, so it’s that compression. The best code is poetry.

He is as generous at heart as in deed and is a role model and mentor to aspiring tech masters. His thirst and longing for knowledge encourages us to do better and be better.
