Born in Hyderabad, India in the year 1969, Satya Narayana Nadella became a world famous name in February 2014, when he took charge of one of the worlds most famous tech company, Microsoft, in the capacity of its CEO. Since then he has become a favourite of the Indian and international press alike. And, now, the wonderful personality has found a place in the school textbooks in Andhra Pradesh.

According to a news piece published in a reputed daily, the Andhra Pradesh government has revised the Telugu non-detailed books from the sixth to the 10th class and English textbooks from first to fifth class. As a result of this revision, Nadella has made his way into the textbooks.

The Microsoft CEO will be one among some of the new personalities being featured in the revised textbooks. Others who have been finalised are, the late mountaineer Malli Mastan Babu, who was famous for being the fastest person to climb seven of the tallest peaks in all of the seven continents, and the celebratory late artist and writer Sanjeev Dev. They all will be a part of the chapter titled ‘Spoorthi Pradaathulu’ (Role Models) in the Telugu non-detailed book for the eighth class. Various other local state heroes have also found a mention in the books of different standards.

From 2014, when Nadella took charge of the Microsoft to the year 2016, the CEO has been successful in turning things around for the tech giant. In the course of making this happen, he has taken a lot of decisions which no one could think about. For example: embracing the company's rival Linux OS on the Microsoft Azure cloud. Smart move, we say.

He further released Microsoft Office for the Apple iPad, spent $2.5 billion to buy Mojang, the studio behind the world famous hit-game Minecraft, released the first-class iPhone and Android mobile applications like Microsoft Outlook, took the decision to skip Windows 9 after the disastrous Windows 8 and went straight for the amazing Windows 10 and introduced the world to Microsoft Surface Book, Microsoft's first laptop ever. So much in such a short tenure surely does deserve a mention.
