HYDERABAD: On his past visit to India in 1997, of every last one of gatherings Bill Gates had, one that emerged in the charitable visionary’s brain included a boss pastor who had demanded an one-onone conference.
Given a 10-minute appointment, Chandrababu Naidu held Gates hypnotized for 60 minutes. It wasn’t what he said that inspired the Microsoft maestro. It was the Powerpoint presentation Naidu made.
Inside weeks of this gathering, Microsoft gave the go-ahead to build its India Development Center in Hyderabad, and not in Bangalore, IT’s head city. This was a result of Naidu’s influential powers as well as because of the Telugu impact in Microsoft’s Redmond office, where Telugu is the desi most widely used language.
Five years on, Naidu will give a redesign on that presentation when he meets the product supremo in another on-one gathering in Jubilee Hall on Thursday.
Then again, this time, the select gathering will have no Power Point presentation. Naidu will pass on to Gates, spontaneous, the advances made by his state in different IT-related activities — e-Seva, Smartgov, and so on. Since this time Gates is here in the symbol of worldwide pioneer of generosity,
Naidu will short the world’s wealthiest individual about the advances made by the state in human asset improvement and look for his backing for the school computerisation program.
The administration has likewise booked a round table meeting with the dignitary at which authorities will talk about issues like inoculation which are high on Gates’ motivation.
The dialog will be gone to by around 26 individuals, including three from the media, and three from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
Bill Gates won’t be getting any accommodation from the state government, there being no supper or lunch booked.
