Bill Gates, co-founder of Microsoft, met Mahindra Group Chairman Anand Mahindra today in Mumbai when he was in India and gave him an autographed copy of his book. Bill Gates’ note to Anand Mahindra and a photo of their meeting were both posted by Anand Mahindra.

Interestingly, the two renowned businessmen did not discuss IT or any business-related matters during their meeting. Instead, they explored ways in which they could collaborate to enhance social impact and make a positive difference in the world. Mahindra wrote on Twitter, “Good to see Bill Gates again. And, refreshingly, the entire conversation between our teams was not about IT or any business but about how we could work together to multiply social impact. (Though there was some profit involved for me; I got a free, autographed copy of his book).”

In his book “The Road Ahead,” American business magnate Bill Gates wrote a note for his “classmate” Anand Mahindra that said, “To Anand, best wishes to my classmate. Bill Gates.” Netizens were curious to know more about their relationship and speculated if they studied together at Harvard University.

During his visit to India, Bill Gates also had a meeting with Reserve Bank of India governor Shaktikanta Das at the central bank’s regional office in Mumbai on Tuesday. The two held talks on various subjects, such as financial inclusion, payment systems, microfinance, and digital lending.
