Adding on to the list of India origin CEOs of the tech giants, we have another one in the town. Parag Agrawal, an IIT-Bombay alumnus, on Sunday replaced Jack Dorsey to become the new CEO of Twitter. Parag Agarawal’s Kundli must have been very favourable for him as he achieved the remarkable feat at just 37 years of age. With that being a fact, Parag is now the youngest among the CEOs of the top 500 companies in the world. In fact, his contribution to the microblogging site must have been commendable as he was unanimously chosen as the next CEO by the Board of Directors.
Before looking at Parag Agrawal’s kundli, let’s know a bit about the new CEO. Parag, as we mentioned, graduate from IIT Bombay. Agrawal joined Twitter in October 2011 as a Distinguished Software Engineer after completing his PhD in Computer Science from Stanford University. He has also worked as a research intern for Microsoft, Yahoo! and AT&T Labs.
It was in 2017 he was promoted and became the firm’s Chief Technology Officer (CTO). As the CTO, he was in charge of the company’s technical strategy, enhancing the state of machine learning, and all such tasks that a CTO is supposed to do. Because how would I know? Technology and me are not the greatest mates, to be honest!!
Anyways, with that being said, Agrawal will now lead from one of the key positions of Silicon Valley. And though it’s his hard work that brought him this far, but do you think even his planets had some role in helping him? Let’s find out.
Parag was born in 1981 in Mumbai. At the time of his birth, Parag Agrawal’s kundli had a conjunction of Mars with a favourable Saturn in Libra in his horoscope. This is a combination in the chart that motivates an individual to advance in technology-related fields.
The best part about Parag Agrawal’s kundli is that Jupiter planet is placed in its own sign. Meaning he was born with good fortune in his favour right from Day 1. All he had to do is add a pinch of hard work to be able to get the best of that fortune. Apart from Jupiter, Venus too is placed for him in its own sign, which makes him innovative.
Recently in the Kundli world, the transit of Jupiter took place over the natal Moon. At the time of the transit, the Moon in the Parag Agrawal’s Kundli was in the house of profession. Thus, this placement of the planet only favoured the favourable.
Going forward, Rahu is transiting over natal Venus and Sun, which means that the new role will not be a piece of cake for Agrawal. He will face a lot of challenges adapting to the same. However, he will get a lot to learn from the journey as Rahu is one of the best teachers one can have. And once the Rahu effect plunges, he will gain more appreciation and opportunities going forward.
As per the sources, working as a CEO, Parag will receive an annual salary of $1 million-plus, excluding bonuses. Apart from annual salary, Parag will also receive restricted stock units (RSUs) valued at $12.5 million. These RSUs will vest in 16 equal quarterly increments, starting February 1, 2022. He will also have the opportunity to get performance-based restricted stock units in April 2022.
