As Modi is more interested in traveling to different places all over the world and interested in encouraging the technology for the development of India. Mark Zuckerberg the Facebook founder and CEO always shows a special interest in India to develop in terms of connectivity.
As we know many times, Zuck communicated with people from various places in his Q&A Townhall meetings, he is taking this as an advantage and great opportunity to spread the awareness of internet.org and connectivity all over the world.
“The more we connect the better we develop”. Probably this is the only line inspired Modi and Zuckerberg as well. As we know that few days back, Modi has visited the Facebook headquarters for a Q&A Town hall meeting to discuss how digitally can India develop in collaboration with Facebook.
Mark in his words praised India as “India is personally very important to our company. It has a great history and we had a great experience with India. When Facebook was in a critical situation and many companies want to buy the Facebook and we had a hard time to make it grow. Then I met Steve Jobs and explained my situation. Then he suggested me to visit a temple in India. After almost a month, seeing the people connected is drastically changed and that made me never look back over the past 10 years.”
How Digital India is going to work with Facebook
Mark has addressed Modi in a respectful manner and expressed his excitement in words about Digital India that “I am personally excited about India for many reasons. Firstly, Internet is very important all over the world. Still a billion people in India need to get connected to the Internet. I really appreciate Modi for taking the initiative the digital India, it is the enormous opportunity for Indians. Whether camping by the communities, woman rights and doing this as a better way of using the Internet. Prime Minister Modi should set as an example for this vision.

Still a billion people must be connected to the internet in India, and 1 out of 3 persons who are connected to the internet are facing a poverty. We must create the awareness and provide the basic internet services, also make them connected easily.
Mark also shared his personal experience in visiting temple for peace and that helped him running Facebook successfully for more than 10 years.

Then Steve suggested him to visit temples at India which makes you to think in a right manner and controls you when you are under pressure.
