Bill Gates, the world's sixth-richest person and co-founder of Microsoft, posted a video on the social media platform Instagram on Monday (March 6). In this video, Gates is seen driving a Mahindra e-rickshaw, Treo, with Kishore Kumar and Manna Dey's classic song 'Babu Samjho Ishare', which is going viral.
Gates wrote with his post that India's passion for innovation is great. I drove an electric rickshaw which is capable of traveling up to 131 km (about 81 miles) and carrying 4 people. It is inspiring to see companies like Mahindra contributing to the decarbonization of the transportation industry.
After this, Mahindra Group Chairman Anand Mahindra shared Gates' video with his tweet, "Chalti ka naam Bill Gates ki Gaadi", very happy to see Bill Gates driving the Trio. Now on the agenda for your next trip should be an electric three-wheeler drag race between Bill Gates, Sachin Tendulkar and me.
Gates is on a tour of India these days and is continuously posting updates on his blog and social media handles. Bill Gates has been seen meeting the country's most popular faces from Anand Mahindra and Ratan Tata to Prime Minister Narendra Modi as a part of his India tour over the past week.
