When the two famous school dropouts met, this is what happened. Microsoft co-founder and philanthropist Bill Gates, along with Union Minister Smriti Irani, launched the Bharatiya Poshan Krishi Kosh – a repository of diverse crops with the aim of reducing malnutrition – in Delhi on Monday. Smriti Irani also shared a picture with Bill Gates on Instagram after the event, and it was the accompanying caption that amused many.
“Soch rahe hain padhai puri kari nahi, aage kya karein (Thinking that we haven’t completed our degrees, what to do next),” Ms Irani, 43, captioned the picture, tongue firmly in cheek.
During the 2019 Lok Sabha Elections, Ms Irani had declared to the Election Commission that she is not a graduate. Her poll affidavit mentions “Three-year degree course not completed,” in brackets.
Not to mention, Bill Gates is one of the most famous college dropouts in the world. He dropped out of Harvard after two years to focus on Microsoft – the company that has made him the richest man on earth. It has a net worth of $110 billion.
