PM Modi and Mark Zuckerberg at Facebook HQ in San Jose, California
“Early on in our history when things weren’t really going well — we had hit a tough patch and a lot of people wanted to buy Facebook — I went and I met with Steve Jobs and he said that to reconnect with what I believed was the mission of the company, I should go visit this temple in India that he had gone to early in the evolution of Apple, when he was thinking about what he wanted his vision of the future to be,” Zuckerberg explained on stage Sunday morning, as he hosted India Prime Minister Narendra Modi for a town-hall style Q&A.
So, 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.
