Pichai started off by talking about his days at the campus. He even agreed to the fact that he bunked a few classes while he was doing his B.Tech course, calling it a ‘right of passage’. “I came to IIT from Chennai and I hadn’t used a lot of Hindi. In my first year of college, I went to the mess and started calling people ‘Abey saaley’, and the mess had to be closed temporarily,” said Pichai laughing. He also mentioned about his wife Anjali, who he met at IIT itself, and how he had to visit the girls hostel to see her.
