As the CEO of Google, Sundar Pichai is one of the most powerful men in the world, but even he worries if he has disappointed his father.

A Buzzfeed report cites Pichai saying "that he worries his father is still disappointed that he didn't go further in school."

He elaborates, "I think if you talked to my dad, he's probably still regretting that I didn't complete my PhD. He had to leave college after his undergrad. He wanted to learn more, but because of financial reasons he couldn't do it. I think he always wanted me to continue on."

Pichai grew up in Chennai and said that his parents sacrificed a lot for him and his brother and that education was always a priority for the family.

The Google chief holds a BTech in Metallurgical Engineering from IIT-Kharagpur. He had planned to pursue a PhD in material sciences and engineering from Stanford after completing his MS in the same subjects. However, he decided against it and dropped out of the PhD programme and went to work for Applied Materials after his MS degree.

Pichai also holds an MBA from Wharton School of Business
