  1. I have at least 1/4 British ancestry, but I also had the privilege of studying math & stat at the University of Pittsburgh with some extremely capable Indians. India’s success is no fluke. It has good leadership, some gifted scientists, and a workforce which improves continually. The British called it “the jewel in the crown”, and only fractious politics kept it from reaching prominence much earlier.
