Popularly known as Woz in the tech world, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak came up with an insensitive statement at the ET Global Business Summit in New Delhi. Talking about Indian culture and progress, Woz said that he doesn’t see any big advances in the Indian tech companies. He also expressed that India lacks creativity as India’s work culture is just about studying and getting a good job to earn good money.
Wozniak’s statement didn’t go well with people of our nation. His views soon went viral on the internet and received a huge backlash.
Baaton mein humse aajtak koi jeeta hai jo ab jeetega? Thinking what it’s all about? Let us tell you Mahindra Group’s chairman Anand Mahindra has given a befitting reply to Apple’s co-founder Steve Wozniak. He asked Woz to visit India again as he wants people to prove him wrong.
Here’s what he tweeted:
I love it when such comments are made. Nothing like a sweeping stereotype to get our juices flowing & prove it wrong. Thanks @stevewoz Come back soon. We’ll make you sing a different tune…
Anand Mahindra said if Wozniak visits India again, he would ensure that the Apple co-founder “sings a different tune”. To paraphrase, it looks like Mahindra is telling Woz Aao Kabhi Haveli Par.
Twitter users didn’t wait to express their views on Anand’s reply.
