Reasons for leaving India

Received offer from the coveted Philips Research Lab in the Netherlands to work with some of the top professionals in the field of Integrated Circuit (IC) design. That work extended as we moved to Philips Semiconductors at USA. The opportunities and the work being done in early 90’s in Europe & USA in the field of Microelectronics, IC design was much ahead of the work being done in India in those days.
