Indians woke up to the name ‘Parag Agrawal’ dominating social media and news headlines. The guy who studied BTech in Computer Science and graduated from IIT-Bombay is the new CEO of Twitter as Jack Dorsey stepped down. Now, this is not regular news for Indians. For us, it’s a moment of pride.
Graduating with flying colours from a sophisticated college in India, bagging a scholarship and studying at an ivy-league institute, and making it big in a foreign land is the ultimate dream for many Indian kids. Parag’s journey has been on the same lines. After IIT, he went on to pursue his PhD from Stanford University and later work in Microsoft, Yahoo and AT&T Labs. He is what many, now, aspire to become.
Hence, many decided to celebrate the news by sharing hilarious memes online! Here’s a look at the best of the lot:

Some of the biggest tech companies like Google, Microsoft, IBM, Adobe, etc. have Indians in the highest management designations. Parag Agrawal is only 37 years old and is now the youngest CEO in the top 500 companies, reports NDTV.
Kudos to Parag Agrawal on achieving this remarkable feat!
