Gururaj “Desh” Deshpande, the US-based Indian billionaire entrepreneur fears that Free Basics of Facebook might lead to the monopoly of just one company ending net neutrality.

 

He holds a B. Tech. in Electrical Engineering from the IIT–Madras, an ME from the University of New Brunswick in Canada, and PhD from Queens University in Canada.

He co-chairs a National Council to support President Obama’s innovation and entrepreneurship strategy.

Deshpande said, “One company owning everything is very dangerous. I am all for Net Neutrality. If Free Basics is against net neutrality, we must oppose that.”

He said that he sets up companies of global standard and reach. And after that he moves on to do something else. He said, “If your work no longer excites you or it starts looking a daily chore, you should quit that. I always do that.”

Talking about the social welfare work taken up by his foundation, Deshpande said, “You should help the rural people to earn their livelihood in a dignified manner. We teach them skills and help them in progressive farming. The people are also happy with our initiatives.”

Commenting on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ambitious ‘Make in India’ and ‘Digital India’ initiatives, he said, “These are good initiatives. But, the implementation is very important. If we can’t achieve what we intend to achieve, then there is no point in creating hype.”
