Dr. Keskar explains how Indians are highly respected in US today and how he struggled at a point of time to believe in himself in his initial days at Boeing.

Explaining the same he said, "Believe in yourself. When I went to work at Boeing, Indian already working there said to me - don`t expect to rise much here. I believed them for the first three years, but in my fourth year, when I was selected for a programme, I thought that even if this is true, I will test it".
