Earlier yesterday, Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin stepped down from their executive positions at Alphapet Inc. -- Google's parent company.
To make way for the Indian origin mastermind Sundar Pichai and the current CEO of Google to take-over the position of Alphabet's CEO and relieve Larry Page -- the former CEO of the parent company.
I’m excited about Alphabet’s long term focus on tackling big challenges through technology. Thanks to Larry & Sergey, we have a timeless mission, enduring values and a culture of collaboration & exploration - a strong foundation we’ll continue to build on https://t.co/tSVsaj4FsR— Sundar Pichai (@sundarpichai) December 4, 2019
The co-founders of Google, Page and Sergey broke the news on their blog as they posted:
While it has been a tremendous privilege to be deeply involved in the day-to-day management of the company for so long, we believe it's time to assume the role of proud parents offering advice and love, but not daily nagging.
It's a proud moment for desis all around the globe and they've taken over Twitter:

While I didn't even know there was a position higher that was higher than that of a CEO, Mr. Pichai has yet again gotten another promotion.
