Bill Gates shares message after meeting Sachin Tendulkar
Microsoft co-founder, Bill Gates, who is currently in India, took out time to meet India’s cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar in Mumbai on Tuesday. He had earlier met his Harvard classmate Anand Mahindra and RBI Governor Shaktikanta Das during his visit to India. The American business magnate later shared pictures with the cricket legend on social media.
Responding to Tendulkar’s tweet, Gates used a cricketing pun in his reply. He said that he was happy to know about Tendulkar’s work on children’s health in India and hoped that if they work together they can make a century of progress.
“We are all students for life. Today was a wonderful learning opportunity to gain perspective on philanthropy, including the children’s healthcare that our Foundation works on. Sharing ideas is one way to solve the world’s challenges. Powerful method. Thank you Bill Gates for your insight.” Tendulkar tweeted.
