Google CEO Sundar Pichai shared advice for Indian engineers amid the growing AI era to enhance their creativity and work productivity. In a YouTube podcast with content creator Varun Mayya, Pichai suggested young engineers should understand technology in a better manner. Pichai emphasized the need for young engineers to grasp technology thoroughly, recognizing India's exceptional pool of engineering talent. 

He said that India has an extraordinary base of developers and engineering talent, and they understand the ongoing trend. They must take charge of building applications in a way that makes sense either for India or for the world. 

Here's the video: 

Why did Sundar cite '3 Idiots' ?

While answering one of the questions of the YouTuber, Pichai said that he believes that real success comes from knowing things more deeply. Explaining it further he cited one of the scenes of Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan's starrer '3 Idiots' where Rancho defined a motor to the professor.  In this scene from Rajkumar Hirani's film, Aamir Khan's character Ranchordas Shyamal Das Chanchar nicknamed Rancho is asked to define a machine, to which he responds with a basic, obvious explanation rather than one that has been memorized.

Pichai's reference to "3 Idiots" underscores his belief that genuine success stems from profound comprehension rather than mere knowledge. 

'India, the top market for our products,' says Pichai 

Pichai affirmed India's significance as one of Google's primary markets, boasting a substantial user base and workforce. He expressed optimism about India's potential to leverage AI's power to develop applications beneficial both domestically and internationally.
