Hazaaron khwaishein aisi, ke har khwaish pe dum nikle. Bohot nikle mere armaan, fir bhi kam nikle,” Nadella quoted from one of the most popular Urdu verses ever. The couplet translates, “Thousands of aspirations such, that each aspiration takes your breath away… I had many dreams, but they still weren’t enough.”

“Creativity in India can make poetry as well as technology for the world,” he said.

The Microsoft top boss, who is on his third visit to India, reiterated how the tech giant can help the country in its ‘Digital India’ initiative and build technology around augmented reality and virtual reality.

Nadella has often compared poetry to code.
