"I wanna talk about some of the cultural issues. That whip row faces among them angry. Americans who will call up. And say i don't want to speak to anybody with an accent. How are you training your whip. Row employees to deal with american customers for example. We do very significant language training. We do very significant accent training but today even if you were to pick up a phone in the united states i mean there's so much diversity in culture in the united states You can do all kinds of accidents including mexican accent. Spanish accents new. York accents Midwestern accent you know so what is an accident and what is not an accident. I think at the end of the day does the customer get a service. He or she wants in terms of an end servicer end-product don't you think it's kinda sad that you offer accent classes. Will we do because you know. Otherwise the there's a question of understanding on the other side you know because of exit in familiarity. And what's wrong with that. There's a little latte of cultural identity. Perhaps it's going to happen. Any come into the influence of the west is getting so predominant emerging countries we talk about american or western influence on indian culture. What can americans learn from indiana. Culture is think you'll see it happening. You're seeing it happening in. Various parts of society can happening in terms of the importance of meditation. The importance of indian music particularly instrumental indian music. You'll see it happening in terms of yoga happening in terms of some degree of family life. also i mean so. We bring certain strengths of more humane tolerance. Do you do your request. Lot of patients patients wife as it. Does it regularly for many many years. We talk about Training employees and you've mentioned a couple of times that you try to train employees to be more self confident. Why is that an issue with indian employees. Good question i think one has to do with the come from various cultures and we also recruit Not only from universities in large cities we recruit from universities in smaller towns where the exposure to a more globalized environment has been much less but normal hesitation of uncertainty and fear We believe that building self confidence in people is a very strong prerequisite to building a culture of change because people are self-confidently less threatened by change. No doubt it's important but it seems is there's something inherent in the indian culture that necessitates this type of training and self confidence. I don't think you would have that type of training with a group of american college grads. For example i think the society is more respect for adults. This is society's more respect to of authority you know we'd be in the country which was ruled by the british for many many years You know it's it's a country where people are uncertain with his how the western nations are going to react to them on a one to one basis But is changing a lot and now you see the community of indian origin in the united states. It's probably having the highest per capita education. The highest per capita national income and the successful successful in engineering successful in technology is successful in teaching and the successful. Admit you talk about what we're talking about self confidence and i want to go back to when you first took over the company. Did you have any issues with self confidence taking over your dad's company christian hope petrified new experience in business. There was a complex company In a complex market three competitive. I was trained for it so we had to really bootstrap oneself by nero in a very short period of time. What's an example of a mistake you might have made early on with the business streaks on judging people and putting the wrong people in wrong jobs and you know then facing a huge personal guitarists of changing them which is not easy in indian society. Not because it's impossible but you know it. It's just not expected in terms of a higher fire culture I would see the biggest mistakes made in terms of not having a majority of judgment on people i wondered. Does anyone ever have a maturity of judgment on people ultimately really improve with with experience. And you improve the tuition. We talk about the company in the early days. But i'm wondering what was challenging for wipro. Let's say even in the twenty first century what has been more challenging for you than you might have expected. Rapid growth. Nubia employer was seventy thousand. People you're growing at above thirty percent in revenue as highly people intensive business. So even if you've been more productivity and more automation year-on-year you still recruit a very large complementary people to grow at thirty percent because challenges. How do you maintain that integrity of your culture. Because that's very important for delivering consistent high quality service to our customers. The second is. How do you globalize because More than seventy five percent of our revenue comes from global markets and we are globalizing. We've done it successfully in europe. You're trying to do even more successfully now. The united states so we are in the process of setting up centers in university towns in the more rural settings of the united states which are cheaper and We're there's local talent available in the universities. Good local science and engineering talent. Good ex military personnel. Who retire early but do not get jobs in that center and they have family roots. You know the families in farming families in trade and they would like to live in those centers. You know places like georgia places. Like virginia and what we are going to be rolling out. Shortly is hiring polish students in large quantities. We wanted to eat center up to five hundred thousand. People take them to india for the three to four months induction training which we do full-time induction training. All engineers and scientists which we recruit from campus then keep them in india for another three months to get them familiar with the global global models of operation and bring them back to the place we hide them from and build the character in the united states of young boys and young girls who really represent future so it seems that instead of being indian company with a global outlook your global company happened to be based in india we have for instance and a half thousand people people working in europe and auto those fourteen hundred locals in sweden swedish in finland finish in norway. The norwegians in uk. The english. and we've been able to successfully that i'm jessica harrison. You're listening to from scratch. My guest is the billionaire and chairman of wpro azeem premji whip rose started off as a hydrogenated cooking fat company in the nineteen forties and has become one of india's largest technology firms with over three billion dollars in sales and seventy thousand employees whip row was ranked among the top one hundred global technology companies by business week magazine..

"Results in companies. But which are embedded deeply into giving those solutions to the use of information technology. So what does that mean. So i you want a sense of familiarity. We compete head to head with the ibm global services be compete head to head with the accenture. We compete head to head with. Eds we have specialization. In finance we have specialization and retail via specialization. in manufacturing for example My cell phone here sitting on the table. What what role have you played in this handset. We one of the largest partners of nokia globally redesigned cell phones for nokia redesigned. The telematics of cars. So if you see a general motors car or if you see a car of nissan of bmw part of the telematics of the car has been designed by us and when you say telematics you mean for instance roadside assistance. Communications wpro still has the consumer business and it accounts for ten percent of sales ultimately or totally about seventy percent of sales. Here's some people have advised you to spin off that part of the business because it would unleash some value. What is the reason why you're holding onto that is it at all. Because that's how your parents started. It knew the business has funded. All growth in terms of cash flows so of course sentiments Very successful it's a decent sized business. We compete with all the multinational successfully. We're not globalized. In that business focus is really the domestic market and It's growing thirty percent year. It's gaining market share and is fun. What are some of the products yourself we sell. We sell toiletries We sell light sources. Light bulbs so when. I'm in india next week and i'm using toilet paper it's most likely Twenty thousand toilets. So what is where prostate for. Original name was western india. Vegetable products ltd became. Be bit of a joke would be went into it so we do took the first letter of the name and drop the the three reproof now there are obviously skeptics in the united states towards outsourcing. Saying that you are giving american jobs away. What is your reaction to to them. What is your response to them. The fundamental issue is that the united states is not producing enough engineers and not producing enough scientists The united states will graduate this year. Probably about seventy thousand. Engineers ministry comment of engineers is probably at least one hundred thousand one hundred and twenty thousand and it's not a career of choice for young boys and young girls and i think that's a fundamental problem that the country is facing we find our attrition levels of our people here because of demand from multinational. It companies is so high that we have high attrition rate in the united states that we haven't india this imbalance between supply and demand. We are giving solutions to american companies to be able to build technology so we really work his co partners. We do not see ourselves out sources we talk about a scarcity of engineers in this country. But how 'bout for instance the call centers in india. They're not engineers answering the phones. What is your answer to people. Skeptical of of them Who say we should have call centers here in the united states but do you have culture into the new york city. We do not. Labor is so so high. So you'll call centers ultra migrating to your smaller towns because you're getting across arbitrage so it'll these dynamics of world competition. I'm not saying that there is not going to be community sensitivity. there's probably much less community sensitivity on software engineers because they're not really getting displays. They're just moving from one kind of job different kind of job. I think the most sensitive point is you right pointed out used to call centers. What is the solution to that. I think you have to appreciate that. When companies and countries globalize traffic. Sometimes it had wanted you sometimes disadvantages and if the liberalized part of the western world wants access to emerging country markets. There has to be some amount of quid-pro-quo touch to me. That's fundamental to the whole thing. In fact thomas friedman in his book. The world is flat speaks to that. He says that. Economists often compare china's and india's entry into the global economy to the moment when the railroad lines crossing america finally connected new mexico to california with its much larger population when the railroad comes to town noted vivek. Paul who was whip rose president. The first thing you see is extra capacity. And all the people in new mexico say those people those californians will wipe out all of our factories along the line that will happen in some areas and some companies along the line. We'll go out of business but then capital will get reallocated and in the end everyone along the line will benefit. Sure there's fear and that fear is good because that stimulates a willingness to change and explore. And find more things to do better. So put you you you. You look at the it austrian india and you walk into these large modern centers. What do you see career conditioning All the kids they're wearing levi shoes or adidas shoes They're wearing levi jeans. They're wearing All kinds of western dresses. That's that's a product market for european and american companies. Probably about sixty percent of incremental growth is coming from emerging countries so net net The cycles where it hurts but then the fundamentals of economics creates jobs including in developed countries..

"Business business and services area because we believe that profitability and growth would be better in the services area and the business maybe could build a strong entity revenue repeat revenue recurring revenue and information technology and one of the leading players in india international Multinational computer company had exhibited india in about seventy seven because of Some revisions in the policy of the government of india and they had very dominant market share information technology so it created a huge opportunity in terms of an entry point and we started off addressing the domestic. It market. Now you mentioned in the nineteen seventies when you started focusing on technology that indian government policy changed and they kicked out ibm and i don't know if that's the company you're referring to but it's essentially closed the economy and did not allow foreign investment. When i think of that academically has a stigma attached to it when could government does that. Did you think at the time that it was unequivocally positive. What the government did i. Don't think the government kicked out. Ibm ibm kicked itself. Out how come. Ibm the government had a policy that they wanted ibm to bring current technology instead of selling computers in india which they had junked in the rest of the world ten fifteen years back. They were selling unit record machines. India nine thousand nine hundred now remember. We started junking unit record machines at stanford in the sixties scrapping them. I mean they were based on god's computer cards. The punishment semi obsolete machines very early in the game and to the woman said that you must dilute your stake in this particular area which is of national importance. You cannot have one hundred percent company and the government is still willing to give the majority control and ibm in. Those days believed that the world could not exist without ibm. So the cell remove themselves from the country and They tried to call the bluff of the government. Government was not bluffing it. It proved an enormously wise decision for the government of india because it built up a whole local industry of information technology. Which is today competing with the rest of the world and ibm is back in. The country with viciousness have today forty thousand people in india. Ibm is back in the country today because in nine hundred ninety one. The finance minister opened the country because there had been a Balance of payment crisis where the reserves were almost zero and it was sort of a wakeup call to india but between nineteen seventy seven and ninety one whip rio was able to really develop its expertise companies people call you the father of indian outsourcing. How did you come up with the idea to outsource your services. What was the catalyst for it. You know i think the catalyst was that We had built a very very strong. Rnd team because in the In the late eighties and the early eighties India was in a major foreign exchange crisis. You know which which necessitated the liberalisation process was started in nineteen ninety-one and what had to really invent everything from scratch. When had to ride the compilers one had to ride the operating systems. One could not import the software because the duties were either very very high or the impeachment not permitted so you really had to build from white sheet of paper computer end solutions and as the economy started to liberalize And imports became free.

Russian Opposition Activists Set for Court Amid Crackdown
"Mm hmm. Now in moves that indicator further crack down on any opposition to President Putin. Russia's upper house of parliament has approved a law that bans members of what it deemed extremist organizations. From standing in elections. A new law will, in effect bar many of President Putin's critics from running in legislative elections in September. Let's go to Moscow and speak to our correspondent Steve Rosenberg. Steve tell us who is being talked about here. Who are these so called extremists. We're talking about extremist or terrorist organizations according to changes to the electoral law. So if you look at the official list off terrorist and extremist organizations in Russia, it includes groups such as al Qaida on Isis, so no surprise there. The electoral law is not being amended because of those groups. It is clearly being changed to make it harder for supporters of opposition leader Alexander finally to run for office this autumn in the parliamentary election. Don't forget that a Russian court is considering at the moment whether to label Mr Levine is political political network, an extremist organization. In fact, one federal list in Russia has already labeled it extremist. So if, as expected, the court goes ahead. Designates Alexander won.

"New station K T A R news. Strong values and strong opinions. The mic broom head show can t a R news 92 3 of them and the Katie Our news app. Thanks so much for being here. The allies been on Arizona when it comes to elections because of the audit that's going on at the Coliseum. Which is ongoing. Azi we've talked about before Senate President Karen Fan I had thought at some point. Maybe this would end after the initial part of this audit that maybe they would not come back. But they are. They're back stronger than ever. They have got more tables set up for the count and the controversy. Continues about the audit and the validity of it, Um From the governor to the the county recorder. And others. The secretary of state, so this is a mix of political parties have said. We did things right in Arizona. There's no reason to believe that there was fraud. But they're still looking for fraud in Maricopa County. Now we keep hearing from people. That they're finding things that there but we haven't seen an official report from anybody on anything they found s O. I don't want to go too much into the audit. We talked about that every day. But what about elections in Arizona? What can be done? To have people be more confident in the election process. I've never understood the idea that having to show idea vote was somehow harmful. Or oppressive to any group of people. Um So here's where the argument shifts for me. The legitimate conversation that people have had about this audit in saying that, you know this is opening up a Pandora's box and do we want people looking at our ballots? I understand that argument completely that people need to feel like they can vote safely that they don't have to worry about things that we shouldn't be doing this because it sets a bad precedent. And all that makes sense. People have a right to know that their ballot is going to remain secret. Well, there are strangers handling your ballot. Now. We don't know what their qualifications are. We don't know what they're looking for. I understand all those arguments. It isn't the same argument made on the other side that says, we want to make sure that there is no voter fraud that with that people that are showing up to vote for the person they say they are. That showing somebody a piece of mail with your address on it isn't good enough that we have to have an I D. And I don't know of anyone who doesn't. There are people that don't but they're few and far between. Who are we disenfranchising by having a law in place that says, when you go to the polls, you show idea vote. One of the bills that got killed in the House of Representatives had to do with mail in balloting, which would have required some form of an identification number, whether it was a social Security like last for your social, your driver's license number written on the ballot or something to that regard to prove who you are that died in the house. There is also now legislation pushes for criminal charges for elections violations on the part of the sweeping election measure. They want to create criminal penalties for elections workers and volunteers who deviate from procedures and to give prosecutors all male all mail ballots rejected for signature problems. So they want to prosecute people that are voting illegally, which it's already illegal to vote. Falsely, Um And this is there's a lot of pushback on this that people shouldn't be harassed. Well, no one's harassed if you do things the right way. If you want to stop fraud of any kind, Um, you know what you have to do is make the penalties. More stiff the punishment. The risk has got to be greater than the reward. That's life. You know that his life why the people US drive as fast as they drive myself included and put myself in that in that category is, we know that if we get pulled over, we're gonna get a ticket. But the chances of seeing a trooper on the freeways is not that great anymore because there's not enough of them. So people tend to go faster, and that's what accidents go up because there's a lot of people driving a lot faster when you make the risk. Worse than the reward of doing it. People stop Arizona takes do you I very seriously. We have some of the most strict dy laws in severe punishments in the nation. And it was a conscious effort from the people of Arizona to say to people. It's not a joke. We're not playing with this. You are going to be severely punished if you do it. And, to a certain.

"What one of the things that one of the questions Now that buying has been inaugurated. A question has been and keeps coming up. Where it is. Where does President Trump go? And what is the movement going from here? Here was the president his farewell address talking about Azi hands power over to the new administration to the bite Administration. What about the movement? The Marga movement, the Make America Great Again. Perspective. Here's Here's how President Trump addressed that. I fought for you. I fought for your family. I fought for our country. Above all I fought for America and all it stands for And that is safe, strong, proud and free. Now, as I prepared to hand power over to a new administration at noon on Wednesday, I want you to know that the movement we started Is only just beginning. There's never been anything like it. The belief that a nation must serve its citizens will not dwindle, but instead only grow stronger by the day. As long as the American people hold in their hearts deep and devoted love of country. Then there is nothing that this nation cannot achieve. Communities will flourish. Our people will be prosperous. Our traditions will be cherished. Our faith will be strong and our future will be brighter than ever before. Go from this majestic place with a loyal and joyful heart. And optimistic spirit and a supreme confidence that for our country and for our Children, the best is yet to come. Thank you and farewell. God bless you. God bless the United States of America.

He was the guy who defended Fox News Channel's decision to declare Arizona for Biden before the polls were closed. Interesting anyway. Here is Jesse Waters last night on the five talking about the four years of the Trump presidency. I'm just thinking about the trump term kind of like a nascent trip for some people who was really eye opening, and for some people who was just a bad trip. It really depends on how you experienced the last four years. For a lot of us that paid attention. It was extremely eye opening. Because he the way he moved, he was able to really pull back the curtain. You could kind of see how bias the media Woz. For the first time you could see the true threat of Communist China. We got crash courses in constitutional law. We found out how really powerful Silicon Valley was that it was really eye opening in a very intense way. Sure Woz and many Americans eyes are wide open, and I'm thankful, very grateful for the awareness the level of awareness that Americans have about.

Is this going to stop? Well, I have to tell you guys, I'm not sure where she was or where she was watching from, but I watched pretty Very vividly. Um all of the activity based around those rights. Azi, the looters and the anarchist burnt out businesses as they rampage streets in SoHo on Madison Avenue. 47th street. You name it all over the city destroyed. The city on Guy also watched cops that were laid back that we're doing exactly what the mayor said. Are taking a light touch on dealing with them, So I'm not sure what she's talking about what force she's talking about. I have no objection with her suing the mayor. She should be suing the mayor for not doing his job. Um, but this whole thing about the police were using excessive force. I don't think anybody saw that No one. What I did see was cops getting hit by cars. Cops getting bottles plummeted with bottles and stones and rocks tops going to the hospital over 200 or 300. Cops injured. That's what I did say what she mentioned in the report or in this In this lawsuit is absolutely absurd. She's the attorney general for the state in New York. She should she is the chief should be the chief law enforcement officer for the state of New York. And she's attacking the cops demonizing the cops victimizing the thugs. And it's a prime example of what the left does consistently and the reason why crime is skyrocketing in these well, these mostly minority neighborhoods because the cops are being demonized, and they're not being his proactive because they don't get charged if they do stuff. So it's counterproductive on her part. It's it's inaccurate and really is nauseating to watch and listen to. Conversely, Bernie Kerik on the Bernie and said show behind the badge is the show. Two o'clock on Saturdays on WNBC Radio with Bernie Kerik. But conversely, CNN I just watched a couple of graphics on CNN they're talking about now. All of a sudden they have sympathy for the police. Down in Washington, D C. They couple of graphics I just read Officer protester ripped away my baton and and and and hit BB with it, Officer I yelled at protester I have kids. So all of a sudden our CNN is sympathetic to the police. I don't know. I mean, I mean, you know, it's a sort of a flip flop and last week, by the way, you did, say Bernie Kerik that You believe that the trump protesters were infiltrated by anti fur. There was some intelligence to indicate that now the majority of course, where Trump supporting lunatics, but they did arrest last night. Ah, Black lives matter. Activists for infiltrating and actually inciting. He be penetrated the capital. They did arrest a guy last night. So you were right about that. Well, this is this is the guy that the mayor and identified over a week ago. Really? You know, that was one of the primary instigators. Hey, put out training videos. He put out leaflets and and told people to go to the capital on the sixth. There was a bunch of planning a bunch of training. Um, you know, we saw this over a week ago before they actually impeached the president. Um, you know, so this is another example of the left jumping the gun before any investigation was concluded. But I want to. I want to talk about Washington for a second guys. Anybody that says they can't secure a city? Um like Seattle, Portland Washington, D. C. Atlanta any of these cities they got rampaged over the summer. Anybody that says they can't secure a city on DATs. Why they have all this writing and looting. They're full of it. Because if you go to Washington, D. C right now, you can't physically walk anywhere without being barricaded by these massive barriers. It looks like the green zone in Iraq. Back in $2000 when I was there. Well, the bottom line is And I have to tell you, I think it's way overblown. I think it's a big show. Um, in an attempt for them to, you know, send a signal that You know they they're deathly afraid of Trump supporters or Republicans and and I don't. I'm not going to say Trump supporters anymore. This is a Republican Democrat thing. That's what this is in the Democrats. You know, the mayor of Washington D. C. Actually has Washington D C, looking like You know, Germany in the aftermath of the war, you know, right, you know that they got 21,000 national troops coming in for Wednesday and just moments ago, they actually canceled today's Joe Biden rehearsal for inauguration because of security concerns, so they are really, really corny, but it's good for what They are really playing this on there. Well, they just You just even emphasize your point, even more. There's nobody there and they cancel today's rehearsal. I want to ask you, though, about the mayor and Yu Yang jumped in yesterday and said he's going to run for mayor of the city about a building blocks. Your really you have remarked on this guy once before, but it was many, many, many weeks ago with Bernie and I before the election, obviously and What we saw in D. C last week if Eric Adams decides that part of his platform to become mayor of this city Will be because he served as a cop in the city for two weeks, and he's not going to be a zoo mean to the cops as the last administration has been when he was a cop. You were the commissioner here in New York. What kind of cop was he?.

Um so that you know that that's when the 10 day window ends. S so there's still some question marks. We gotta make sure he doesn't. You know they're gonna make sure you meet all the covert protocols doesn't develop any further symptoms. Positive tests things like that. But it is hard to imagine that if he is eligible to play that they don't find some role for him, even though it might have to be limited since he's not in practice, Always. My last time he was on the field. What a display was from tomorrow. My triple. It's our guest. That was incredible. It's Mike Triplets are guests from ESPN NFL Nation. It's Carmen and your co on ESPN. 1000 is Bree's definitely done at the end of this year, or does it kind of depends on what happens in the playoffs? I think everybody is prepared for him to be done at the end of this year and operating as if he will be he actually Has Adam Schefter reported, told the same Susan entire last year before he changed his mind and came back on by the tone of it always felt like coming back for one more run. But you know, the final piece of that is he has to. He has to actually finally make that final decision, which he has not. Announced yet so you know, I know. You know, I've wondered back and forth. He had 11 broken ribs and a punctured lung with you that that sideline of performance is that the All right? That's it. I have to quit. Just suffered that injury was that I have to come back because I didn't get the playful 16 games. I mean, it really might depend. What taste it is in his mouth after this season, But you know, the leader in the clubhouse is that he retires. How healthy is he? By the way with that injury mean 11 broken ribs a crack? I mean, there's got to be He can't feel great candy right now look on, and we saw a little rust when he came back at first. But, um, I think he's gonna be in his good a shape. Askew can't be after an injury, like fact that he has now has three games. Back. Tonto kind of get comfortable with whatever adjustments he has to make, and he's looked a little more fluid and a little more in rhythm With each passing game. I thought it looked really good. In week 17. So you know you're not getting 2011 Prime Group breeze in this game, but I think they're getting pretty close Tolo to what he's been for the last couple years. When you look at the Bears, what do you identify as their number one offensive weapon? Well. I mean, you have to say David Montgomery based on what he's done over the last four years, I I still think Alan Robinson is is you know the biggest talent on that may be on that entire team right now, although you know Kalil back, keep it sort of conversation, but Um, you know, the way the Bears have been doing it. What interests me is the Saints have had for most of the year. They have the number one run defense in the league on Ben and they had this streak of like 55 teams that they hadn't allowed 100 yard rusher. Then they went into Philadelphian got upset last month. In jail in hearses debut when both do and hurts, and Miles. Sanders both ran for over 100 yards in that game. They haven't faced a lot of teams that have, you know, a mobile quarterback and the bootlegs and the stakes. So you know, you wonder how they're going to defend, especially since they didn't seem it's too risky in the previous meeting. Will that cause any issues for them? What? You know what the Bears have done with the run game. In Stravinsky's than a quarterback. What is the impact? Or maybe I should say the lack thereof of, you know, mostly empty Superdome for a playoff game in New Orleans. Well, yeah, I mean, you know, I talked to people over the You never know for sure. When you discover one team that I've talked to guys who played around the league played for other teams, I think universally. Most guys seem to think the Superdome is among the two with the loudest venues in the entire league on DNO, not having that element At their disposal obviously hurts now. I mean, there's still a lot of creature comforts of home. Um, you know, they'd be rather be playing this game to play outdoors and soldier field on the grass terms and in January But, yeah, you lose that noise element. You're losing a big assist. No question about it. Mike, We appreciate the knowledge Thanks for the update, buddy and have a great weekend, All right. Anytime, Guys. Thanks, Mike. Mike triplet from ESPN NFL Nation Best home field advantage for when you were playing. Where was it? Best home field advantage. I mean, I guess I should say like, what was the place where you go on the road, and you'd be like, Man it is. It's lower elevation buff. Buffalo was always hostile. Yeah. Playing up involved and you were going there when they were really good. In the early nineties in New York was okay. New York was allowed. We'd play the playoff game in their Kansas City. You're going to Kansas City, and they're irritating. You know, they've got there. Anytime they get a first down, it's like, first down, Uh, Denver, the crowd would say the pass on 3rd and 10 was income pleat in the whole crowd. Come in, and you get tired of hearing that. Incomplete. Kansas City Denver Um and and really, that's I played, you know, in green bad, never played in Green Bay against anybody to know whether that would be intimidating and I wasn't on the opposite sideline, but those two spots realistically, Minnesota was loud, but it was artificially loud, right? They'll never admit it. But they piped in noise on the sidelines and they put speakers right behind you. They said. Oh, That's going out to the fans know wasn't you could sit there You could hear a rumble when nobody was talking. There are piping and noise to try to unsettle the visiting team, so I never considered that legitimate. It's a tough when you can hear and you've gotta communicated different way. Then odds are there's gonna be a miscommunication. So that makes life a little bit tougher. But Kansas City in Denver, where two unique places I never played in Seattle So I can't tell you what Seattle was like. I never played in Washington that played 10 years I played 100. It's amazing 120 some odd games. How did you never play in Washington? I never played. Nandi never played wash to playing a lot of weird places. I played everywhere that Houston Oilers play. How about that? The Astrodome? Played at Vanderbilt. I played the new stadium. I played in another stadium somewhere else. That's amazing. Don't even know where we played. You were handsome college stadium playing here. I played in Baltimore. At the new stadium. I played an old metropolitan stadium there with the Baltimore Colts, right? Yeah. The culture's to play. The Orioles used to have their old stadium. Yes, that's right. Right. So I mean, you know, I played in some of the weirdest places in the world and Anaheim. Oh, and then when the Raiders were there, I never played the Coliseum man. But I did plan Anna, where the Anaheim Angels around that's crazy, played in Oakland, Alameda County Stadium that not intimidating at all went out there and they're all smoking pot and in the end zone there, call me bad names. Me and Dave y Del, If you get a picture of me and Dave y del in an all white uniforms, right Two of the most awkward body types in the history of the NFL. You put us together and they are looking at us and they're yelling at us in their calmness names, and they're degrading us. Anybody just smile and it's like what? What sort of effect are you having on us Right now? I want to find this picture and you're really nothing. Nothing. You're not affecting us at all. But go ahead, Waste your energy and make yourself feel good. So we let him go. And then pretty. Biletnikoff was on the Raiders coaching staff came over to us and started talking. Listen, chat. Let's have a good old Freddie Biletnikoff. Freddy liked me for some reason, man. How about your possible guy? Freddy saw me on tape because he's obviously watching the defense and he saw the way I played and he come up to me shook my hand. Because, man, I am telling you, I enjoy watching you plan. I'm kidding. He goes. You getting some of the weirdest spots in the world. You always come out smelling like a rose. That's well, thank you. Coach. Appreciate Tattoo coffee. That is so sweet.

Space exes is one of the primary users now of the Kennedy Space Center on Cape and the adjoining Cape Canaveral. What has always been called Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.

Kind of ubiquitous. It won't be dependent on ground technology for you to use it on. The goal is to provide Internet even to places that are normally Either, uh, disconnected by geography, uh, disconnected by means of lack of infrastructure and institutional poverty or disconnected because of political oppression. Uh, this could be an amazing a thing that changes the planet. Once it happens on, it'll probably happen. They switch pride get turned on on this in a few years. Well, I went to the to the site last night for Starlink. Now I can't get it. But I did see work. Canada just got approval. And I love the guise of space X. They have such a great sense of humor. They're calling this the better than Right. That's that's a that's space X humor for you, right? So again, with Canada getting it and I've seen some of the speed. This thing is supposed to be just absolutely amazing. Now they scrubbed last night's launch, correct. Thing correct. They had weather issues. If you lived in Melbourne, you know the weather issues that we can get on the east Coast of Florida. So, um The weather issues have prevented them from launching last night. They were trying to launch this over the weekend. Actually it it keeps getting delayed, But they're gonna try again tonight and they're feeling much better about the weather chances tonight. And, of course, is the recovery vehicle for the booster is called. Of course I still love you. My correct event. Yes, boss, essentially a barge that's automated. On it heads out into the Atlantic and its positions itself in a place where that that booster rocket can scan. It's not even a fall. It's it's a It's a descent. I mean it lands perfectly and smoothly. On this barge, and what is so interesting or spectacular about this launch specifically is that this rocket will be now going on its seventh launch. Which is something that you know, they thought if they got two or three use of that of out of the one of these rockets, they'd be making amazing strides, but seven uses is amazing. I and what's amazing that not just the technology? But the idea that we can reuse these rockets or space six can reuse these rockets because that translates into savings for the American taxpayers effect is really becoming one of the Most frequently used providers of space access by the U. S government for a number of different things on being able to use rockets over and over again brings the price tag down significantly. Well, yeah, in space X. They certainly do. Ah, phenomenal job.

Compassion insight Inquiry that they so deserve so without further ado here is welcome to the show. I'm so glad to have you. Thank you so much for having Me Natalie. I think just said Yeah. That's the time really happy to hear. I'm really really awesome. Thank you for that well. Let's just jump right in because your story is not only so fascinating an interesting but it's so resonant and useful timely helpful and anything that we would want in a story for mental health awareness so just again let's go through some of the context of what led you to the certain events that are going to highlight different topics that we want to cover today and pretty much. You know where we're going so the floor is yours absolutely you know it's so interesting this morning. Natalie is on the phone with my health. Cook Nomi Levy his amazing and I was just sharing with her somewhat even experiencing over the past sixty days in this quarantine that we've all been going through and how I notice the emotional shifts the physiological shifts in my body and in my mind and she was sharing with me. How each one of us you know we have our bio individuality and the way that we respond to stress can really vary and one of the ways that we as human beings respond to stress can be with variations in our mental health. And you know this is all again very by individualized there so many different factors leading into what we present on the outside how we behave how we feel how we therefore can end up acting and I think it's you know after having on a journey and I'm definitely GonNa get into the journey with you. I think what I've come to understand so much as that. Mental health is really a physiological state of being. There's this really strong mind body and I believe spirit connection and it's an interplay and it's a constant interplay and so what I've come to believe after almost forty years of life on planet earth is that there should be absolutely no stigma with any diagnosis any mental health. Challenge any situation that anyone has and I've come to believe this after having really suffered from dealing from really buying into the stigma to be perfectly honest when I had my challenges beginning in eighteen years so I you know above everything else. That's really my message that we're humans and we were designed tellingly and that said we live in a world with so many different influences from the air that we breathe to all the really trillions of chemicals in our environment and factors in our environment. And there's no shame in having a response to those things that's why I was. There was a poll to follow the holistic psychologist on inside. Nicole Dr Nicole. Did you see her post yesterday? Kind of is was exactly this? It struck me so much I for one could not believe that she ever gets an ounce of pushback or like it her. Her are polarizing in any way like she literally is breaking these down into bite size pieces. And if you don't listen or follow her absolutely find her on instagram. The holistic psychologist but she was talking about how it all started was by a psychotic break. I believe is the word she used that led to a spiritual awakening. Which in that moment this. That was like totally reconnected. Me Back to my own ethos for why. I'm so fascinated by that because that can be the precursor to a spiritual awakening aura Understanding yourself or the world on a deeper level. I know my My sister as well. I went through my apostasy event with the Mormon Church leading the Mormon Church. One of my sisters Last summer said broke down and cried and apologized for how she treated me during that time but said I thought you were having a nervous breakdown and I would never did. Yeah and and I knew that I wasn't but to be treated like I mean so. That's where it dovetails with me. And maybe we'll develop not today but develop that point that. I've just brought up in Green Deb At another time but this is about you today and I'm Su- guided United States. I think you bring up so many interesting ideas in terms of you know this this having a psychotic break. What does it mean to have psychotic break? And the way that I've come to understand the psychotic break you know you haven't gone through your your break away from the Church for example and your sister treating you just like you were having a nervous breakdown on some level. There are something she couldn't process couldn't understand or didn't know what to do with and so she was labeling breakdown kind of writing it off and I think that's what happens with mental illness is that we tend to write people off. Oh they're just crazy. They're mentally ill. They're sick in the head and underneath all of that. There's a much deeper story and I think that the break from reality can come. When reality isn't receiving the energy that you are trying to put out there or perhaps you don't know Put it out there so you don't have to get into. I've definitely had my few psychotic breaks in In my time on this earth and I would be happy to share one or more than one of them with you. I think that the first one that comes to mind you know being that we're both right around the same age and we're both mothers is something that happened to me in the twenty twelve and kind. Call it. This superwoman syndrome. Looking back at what I was going through and then the shift that happened in my life after my psychotic break so I would be happy to get into that one. Yeah so So take you back to the scene. It was twenty twelve. It was summer and I had three kids. Two daughters and a son and my youngest boy was starting preschool. In the fall and at the time I was a teacher. I've been teaching a really wonderful school and doing all sorts of work as an education specialist loving my job and I knew that my next step was to get a doctorate in education and so I got into the program of so excited and then summer semester began and I just decided as soon as it did that nothing in my life was GonNa fall through the cracks at all and it was a very firm decision that nothing at home would fall through the cracks. I would continue to host guests regularly and gone date nights with my husband and go to his work events. My kids would stand all their activities. I'd keep carpooling them to school and keep working and somehow just kind of fit in those six hour classes and hundreds of pages of reading every week. How am I GONNA do that? Well after my first six hours long I realized that I couldn't pay JEN looking back for. I mean it's completely understandable as to why so many things on my plate at a time I mind was in so many different places and decided to go check in with a physician and see if possibly you know there were. There were medications out. There may be prescription. They can help me with my inattention at school and I was prescribed Ritalin. I believe Ritalin real and adderall over the course of the summer twenty twelve and as summer turned into fall and life got busier. My course loads got busier. I started up my dose. A little bit. I really enjoy the way it made me feel and it was really great because I wasn't so hungry so I didn't have to take the time to prepare any elaborate meals to bring with me to work. I could just kind of eat a kind bar. You know twice a day and drink a couple lot as and I would be you know well on my way so that was how I was living. You know I started losing weight which I thought was great because then I could skip exercising too to save more time Iraq right like it. One of the live shows love the logic and and so. That's kind of how I was living just in this lake really overly productive. Just stay up a little extra know. Read review extra pages. I needed to get straight as that was thing for me and I just couldn't let anything be imperfect in my life at that time or here imperfect to anyone like I needed to be the.

"The father of outsourcing and India's Bill Gates wanna talk about some of the cultural issues that whip row faces among them angry Americans who will call up and say, I don't wanna speak to anybody with an accent. How are you training? Your whip bro employees to deal with American customers. For example, we do very significant language training. We do very significant action training. But today, even if you were to pick up a phone in the United States. I mean, there's so much diversity in culture in the United States. You can get all kinds of accents including Mexican axons. Vanish axons New York accents been western accents it. So what is an accident in? What is not an accent anymore? I think at the end of the day does the customer get a service. He or she wants in terms of an end service end product. Think it's kinda sad that you offer accent classes, where we do because, you know, otherwise, there's a question of understanding on the other side, you know, because of accent in familiarity and what's wrong with that. There's a little latte of cultural identity, perhaps it's going to happen. Anyway, come in the influence of the rest is getting so predominant in emerging countries. We talk about American or western influence on Indian culture, what can Americans learn from Indian culture. I think you're seeing it happening. You're seeing happening in various parts of society of seeing happening in terms of the importance of meditation the importance of Indian music, particularly instrumental in music, you're seeing it happening in terms of yoga see, you can happening in terms of some degree of family life. Also, I mean, so he brings certain strands of more, human tolerance. A lot of patients you have that patients don't provide as it does it very regularly for many many years, we talk about training employees. And you've mentioned a couple times that you try to train employees to be more self confident. Why is that an issue with Indian employees? Good question. I think one is to do with the come from various cultures. And you know, we also recruit not only from universities in large cities recruit from universities and smaller towns where the exposure to more globalized environment has been much less than normal hesitation of uncertainty and fear. We believe that building self confidence and people is very strong prerequisite to building a culture of change because people are self confident they less threatened by change. No doubt. It's important. But it seems is there something inherent in in the Indian culture that necessitates this type of training and self confidence. I don't think you have that type of training with a group of American college grads. For example, one thing society is more respect for adults societies more respect to of authority. We've been a country which was ruled by the British for many many years, it's it's a country where people are uncertain with with how the western nations are going to react to them on a one to one basis, but it is changing a lot. And now you see the community of Indian origin in the United States. It's probably having the highest per capita education, the highest per capita, national income, and they're successful successful in engineering successful technology this successful in teaching and this success for medicine about we're talking about self confidence. And I wanna go back to when you first took over the company. Did you have any issues with self confidence? Taking over your nets company without Griffin. Petrified new experience in business.

"Business services area because we believe that profitability and growth would be better in the services area. And the business could build a strong entity revenue repeat revenue recurring revenue, and we zeroed in information technology and one of the leading players in India international, multinational, computer company, had exhibited India in about seventy seven because of some revisions in the policy of the government of India, and they had very dominant market share in information technology. So it created a huge opportunity in terms of an entry point. And we started off addressing the domestic IT market. Now, you mentioned in the nineteen seventies. When you started focusing technology that. The Indian government policy changed, and they kicked out IBM. And I don't know if that's the company you're referring to but essentially close the economy and did not allow foreign investment when I think of that academe has a stigma attached to it when a government does that did you think at the time that it was unequivocally positive what the government did. Kicked out IBM IBM kicked itself out. IBM the government had a policy that they wanted IBM to bring current technology instead of selling computers in India, which they had junked in the rest of the world ten fifteen years back. They were selling your record machines India nineteen thousand now remember we started junking unit record machines at Stanford in the sixties scrapping them based on cards computer cards, the punched him in semi obsolete machines very early the game. And to the government said that you must delete your stake in this particular area, which is of national importance. You cannot have one hundred percent company and the government still willing to give them George control an IBM in those days believed that the world could not exist without IBM. So the self remove themselves from the country, and they tried to call the bluff of the government government was not bluffing. It it proved enormously wise decision for the government of India because it built up a whole local industry of information technology, which is today competing with the rest of the world. AM is back in the country with wishes nece they have today forty thousand people in India IBM is back in the country today because in nineteen ninety one the finance minister opened the country because there had been a balance of payment crisis where the reserves were almost zero and it was sort of a wakeup call to India, but between nineteen seventy seven and ninety one whip row was able to really develop its expertise. People call you the father of Indian outsourcing, how did you come up with the idea to outsource your services? What was the catalyst for it? The go-to was that we had built a very strong RND team because in the in the late eighty s and the early eighties. India was in a major foreign exchange crisis. You know, which which necessitated the liberalisation process, we started in nineteen Ninety-one, and what had to really invent everything from scratch had to ride the compilers had to ride the operating systems. One could not import the software because the duties were either very very high or the impulse not permitted. So you really have to build from white shoot of computer end solutions and as the economists auditor to liberalize and imports became free. We found that we could redeploy lot of these people outside of your Andy see we use the expedite which we had built on the domestic market to be of the same services in Auburn deserving to global customers and one of earliest customers where companies like not tell. Companies like Motorola companies like into this was in the late nineteen eighties..
