Mahindra attended the India-US Hi-Tech Handshake event, which aimed to strengthen the ties between the two countries in the high-tech sector. Other prominent figures in the business delegation included Mukesh Ambani, the Chairman and Managing Director of Reliance Industries, Nikhil Kamath, co-founder of Zerodha and True Beacon, and Vrinda Kapoor, co-founder of 3rdiTech. The meeting saw the participation of notable American representatives, including Satya Nadella, the CEO of Microsoft, Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple, Sundar Pichai, the CEO of Google, and Sam Altman, the CEO of OpenAI.
Following the event, Mahindra took to Twitter to share what he described as his “Washington Moment.” He recounted how he, Mukesh Ambani, and Vrinda Kapoor missed the group shuttle bus to the next lunch engagement and attempted to call an Uber. It was during this moment that they unexpectedly encountered NASA astronaut Sunita Williams, also known as @Astro_Suni, and took a selfie with her. In a whimsical twist, they even jokingly asked if they could hitch a ride on her space shuttle instead of taking an Uber.
