Business tycoon Anand Mahindra had nursed a grudge against American magnate Bill Gates for more than two decades, it seems. Going by a recent exchange of tweets, Mahindra had a solid reason to feel so too.
Discussion on the topic began when a Twitter user Ramesh Babu shared a screengrab of a Gates documentary to enquire about the discussion going on between him and Mahindra, who can be seen seated by his side.
Sharing a still from Netflix documentary, ‘Inside Bill's mind: Decoding Bill Gates’, Ramesh tweeted:
He tagged both Mahindra and Gates in the tweet, hoping to elicit a response. And so it did, with Mahindra taking a walk down memory lane to share anecdotes on what went down that day.
In a series of tweets, he informed that the image is from Gates’ first trip to India, when a meeting was arranged between the two because Mahindra & Mahindra was one of the first companies to use WindowsNT. He also clarified that this meet had nothing to do with the fact that the two were classmates in Harvard College.
However, in case you’re wondering how any of this explains why Mahindra holds a grudge against Gates, they don’t. The reason behind the same was elucidated by the businessman in the following Twitter posts.
