Love is the most needed part of each one’s life in front of this even money looks small. Satya Nadella, the CEO of Microsoft proved that money can buy everything except love. In his autobiography, ‘Hit Refresh’, he wrote how difficult it was to live without his wife for whom he was ready to leave his job even. He even surrendered his green card in order to live with his wife.
In the year 1992, Nadella married Anupama, the daughter of his father’s Indian Administrative Service batchmate. Anupama was also his junior at college. After marriage, he intended to bring his wife to the U.S but failed because her application was rejected. He tried very hard to bring Anu with her but failed and thought of leaving his job, settle in India.
He made up his mind to leave his job when he got an idea of giving away his green card and applied for H-1B visa. This H-1B visa enables the person to bring his/her spouse with them. One of his colleague at Microsoft Kunal Bhal also gave up his job as his wife was also not able to join him in the U.S. He came back to India and now owns Snapdeal.
He gave away his green card and applied for H-1B visa many suggested him not to take this big step. But miraculously this trick worked and Anu also joined him in U.S and they started a family there. Satya Nadella’s love story is the best example that love is above everything.
Hats off to this man!
