I see a lot of criticism and hatred towards Indian workers, especially related to work ethics and diligence (all those I will get back to your snarls), but then, how did Manik Gupta (UBER CPO) and Thomas Kurian ( Google Cloud CEO) happen?🤔

- IBM thicIt's a bit of jealousy and honestly I see it more from East Asians than white people. It kinda upsets the "Asian people are the smartest" stereotype that many East Asian people seem to base their self-esteem on.
For the record, Indian Americans are statistically doing better than both Chinese-Americans and Jewish-Americans, who are traditionally seen as the model academic minorities. People might not perceive it that way because you'll find Indian people both at the top and the bottom (taxi driver, small store employee stereotype).
Basically, when groups that you don't expect to do well are doing well, people suspect foul play. That's how 20th century European anti-Semitism started. The Jewish were seen as nomadic low-life outsiders like the Roma and suddenly they became very prominent in banking etc.

- Being a CEO just means you have more money and power (inside your company). That doesn’t mean you are happy or healthy. For many, the latter matters more than the former. The FIRE number for everyone is different. Some people slog all their lives and don’t reach there even after becoming a CEO while some others reach their number in their 30s itself.
