“India is very important to the history of our company,” Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said.
Zuckerberg also told Modi about a little-known incident several years ago when, he said, Facebook “wasn’t doing so well”. The late Apple CEO Steve Jobs, he said, urged him to take a spiritual trip to India and visit a temple there which he himself had visited before during the early days of Apple.
So thats when Zuckerberg flew to India, visited the temple, and spent almost a month travelling around the country. He says that seeing the way that people connected made him feel that the world would be much better if everyone had a stronger ability to connect.
“That reinforced to me the importance of what we were doing, and that is something I will always remember,” Zuckerberg says.
Facebook, of course, pushed through its rough patch, and Zuckerberg rejected acquisition offers, growing the site from a dorm-room experiment into one of the largest tech companies in the world.
