    New Delhi (Sputnik): Back in his college days, top Indian industrialist Anand Mahindra, the chairman of multinational car manufacturing corporation – Mahindra Group – studied in Harvard University with many geniuses of the present day.

    On Tuesday, Mahindra revealed to his 7.4 million followers on Twitter that Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates was also in the same Harvard class as he was in 1973.

    As their father’s classmate, Gates’ success and achievements reduced Mahindra to a mere ‘loser’ in the eyes of his kids, the Indian industrialist has shared in good humour on the micro-blogging platform.

    ​Mahindra took a nostalgic trip down memory lane and shared some previously unheard of tales today after Twitter user Ramesh Babu shared a monochromatic yesteryear screenshot of the (then young) Indian tycoon sitting and chatting with Gates in what appeared to be a meeting.

    The screenshot was captured from a Netflix original docu-series titled – “Inside Bill’s Brain – Decoding Bill Gates” – that was released back in September this year.

    As part of his tweet, Babu casually tagged Mahindra asking him what the discussion with Gates back then was all about.

    ​To Babu’s delight, Mahindra answered his question and shared the funny story of his kids calling him a “loser” and comparing him to Bill Gates in a thread of tweets, informing his followers that the meeting was held in 1997, during Gates’ first ever trip to India.
