Short Takes

Face to face

What can we expect when a social media savvy Prime Minister and chief of the most popular site meet? What do they discuss and how do they interact? The event should be the most posted one. To know how many millions it will get we have to wait until September 27 when Prime Minister Narendra Modi will meet the legendary Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook at its San Fracisco headquarters.

The young billionaire announced on Sunday in an FB post that Modi would be present at a Townhall Q&A session at the Facebook HQ. “Prime Minister Modi and I will discuss how communities can work together to address social and economic challenges,” he said.

Zuckerberg who met Modi during his India visit last October urged FB users to ask questions in his post’s comment section. Modi, on his part, asked his FB followers to share their questions on his post as well as his mobile app. The Q&A session will begin at 10pm IST.
