Sundar Pichai: Life Story

Sundar Pichai used to sleep in a living room of a cramped family home with his brother when they were kids. His father, who was an electrical engineer at the British multinational GEC, made sure that his sons received the education that could make their life. Pichai showed an early interest in tech and an exceptional memory, particularly for phone numbers. He received a scholarship to Stanford University after graduating from the Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur with a degree in metallurgy (B.Tech., 1993) and was awarded a silver medal (M.S. in engineering and materials science, 1995). He stayed in the United States after that, briefly working for Applied Materials (a semiconductor materials supplier) before earning an M.B.A. (2002) from the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School.

Pichai decided to join Google in 2004 as the product management and development head after a brief stint at the management consultancy McKinsey & Co. He first started working on the Google Toolbar, which allowed users of Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Internet Explorer to quickly access the Google search engine. Over the next few years, he worked directly on Google's own web browser, Chrome, which was released publicly in 2008. Pichai was designated as vice president of product development the same year, and he began to take a more active public role. He was promoted to senior vice president in 2012, and two years later, he was appointed product chief for both the Android smartphone operating system and Google.

Pichai was reportedly vigorously pursued by microblogging service Twitter for employment in 2011, and in 2014 he was mentioned as a potential CEO for Microsoft, but in both cases, he was given large financial packages to stay with Google. He was also said to have helped Google negotiate its $3.2 billion acquisition of Nest Labs in 2014. As a result, when Google's founding members Larry Page and Sergey Brin announced the formation of Alphabet Inc. in August 2015, industry insiders were not surprised when Pichai was appointed as CEO of Google, which was reorganized as a subsidiary. In December 2019, he was also appointed CEO of Alphabet, succeeding Page.

Sundar Pichai and His Family

Sundar Pichai married his college-time love, Anjali. Their love story is no less than a tale of two souls made for each other. Anjali Pichai and Sundar Pichai have a fascinating love story that we will love to be the mediator.

Anjali Pichai is the woman who guided Sundar Pichai through his life. Everyone needs such women in their life.

It was when Sundar was studying at IIT Kharagpur that he met Anjali, his future wife. As we know, he was pursuing a bachelor’s degree in metallurgy. Anjali was his classmate and same batchmate.

During the final year of his engineering at IIT Kharagpur, Sundar gathered some courage and proposed to Anjali, who accepted his proposal happily. This honeymoon period lasted only for a short time. After college, Sundar left for the USA for higher studies. Meanwhile, Anjali Pichai was left back in India to pursue her career in chemical engineering. Anjali and Sundar did not talk to each other for 6 months because Sundar was not financially independent back then.

Soon after a few months, Anjali also left for the USA to meet Sundar, while he bagged a job in a firm that deals with semiconductors. Now that Sundar had a secure job in hand, he felt like it was the right time to take their relationship to the next level. He asked her parents’ permission like a true gentleman before tying a knot.
