Though I am still a beginner still everyday or two I get a message from junior SE aspirants about what technology or programming language to learn to be more successful.

So no one get famous by learning any programming language or technology. People become famous when they became aware of what exactly they are building. Try searching and you will find that most successful people does not only know programming languages, they know how a particular technology work, the architecture and which are the best architecture, what are the best practices, what are the best tools and every small steps that can effect the performance of their product.
