Apple is one of the most loved brands across the globe. It is one of the biggest companies in the world which was founded by Steve Jobs.
Recently, the co-founder of Apple, Steve Wozniak took a dig at the Indian education system and said that Indians lack the ‘creativity’ factor in them.
He stressed the bitter fact that we Indians just need good high-salaried jobs and nothing else. But he also said that we Indians are lacking the creativity factor in us. Not just this but he also added that he does not believe there can ever be any big tech company or breakthrough in India similar to tech giants Google, Facebook or Apple.
Anand Mahindra, who is the chairman of Mahindra Group gave a befitting reply to the co-founder of Apple. He clearly didn’t like the way Steve Wozniak took a dig at Indians. He took to twitter and wrote a very savage reply, have a look :
I love it when such comments are made. Nothing like a sweeping stereotype to get our juices flowing & prove it wrong. Thanks @stevewoz Come back soon. We’ll make you sing a different tune… https://t.co/Zy4QemamQJ

The tweet read:

#LFLo (Looking For Logic) Even if the “average Indian” lacks creativity, ~1/6th of “creative world citizens” are likely to be Indian [Hint:IQ, EQ, SQ are normally distributed in every (sub-)population]

I don't get it why that 30% of NASA are Indians line is flashed like a badge of honour. As an Indian I am ashamed that my fellow Indians prefer to showcase their talents in a foreign space agency and not in our own. We should soon try to make that figure 0%

While Indians don't lack creativity, think, we don't encourage creative thinking in classrooms & even culturally. We confuse obedience with discipline & children's questions or outofbox thinking is viewed more as an inconvenience & not cherished.

Well, his reply was perfect and we loved how he said “different tune”. Maybe Wozniak isn’t aware that creativity runs in the blood of every Indian. From our Jugaadu ideas to anything, we Indians have a lot of creativity and it’s no secret.
