NEW DELHI: Microsoft's focus on India is to empower every citizen and organisation so that they can perform better than their potential and achieve more fopr themselves and the country, the US giant's chief executive Satya Nadella said here on Monday.

"Every time I come here, I go back energised. Its infectious to see the creativity here. It's important to dream big and create big," Nadella told the media, after a meeting with Microssoft developers, as also entrepreneurs and students.

"I had only two passions that have driven my dreams -- poetry and computer science," said, who started his speech quoting Mirza Ghalib, the noted Urdu and Persian poet of the 19th century.

Minister of State for Finance Jayant Sinha, who was also present at the event, said "Microsoft is a platform for India's growth."

Looking at Nadella, the minister added: "The kind of innovation you do in Seattle, New York, London and other places will not work in Jhanda Chowk in Hazaribagh (a constituency represented by Sinha). We need to innovate in India for India."
