Imagine that you are walking on the streets of San Francisco and suddenly you meet Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google. Recently, the same thing happened with a Bengaluru-based techie, whose social media post about the same has gone viral online. Sid Puri, head of development for Retool in India on Twitter, revealed that he was walking on a street when he met Mr Pichai and managed to take a photo with him. Mr Puri shared the image on LinkedIn and X.

The photo shows the Google chief wearing blue jeans, a jacket and black sunglasses. It doesn’t seem like there is any security around them. However, Mr Puri confirmed in the comments section of his post that Mr Pichai was walking with a security guard who clicked his photo.

Sharing the picture on the microblogging platform, Mr Puri wrote, “Go to SF, he said, no one prepared me to meet Sundar Pichai on the street.”

On LinkedIn, Mr Puri revealed that the photo was taken soon after he landed in San Francisco, US, last week.

The Bengaluru-based techie shared the post on Monday and it has since received over 577,000 views on X and nearly 4,000 likes. In the comments section, while some users asked questions about the encounter, others simply wanted to know which phone Mr Pichai was using. ,

One user wrote, “Wow, he walks without any protection??? I’m a little happy because he’s so down to earth, and also a little scared for his safety.” “Was he using a Pixel 8?” the other one asked jokingly.

A third user commented, “So awesome that (1) you recognized him (I’m not sure I would have recognized him with the sunglasses on) and (2) he agreed to a photo fest! Of course.” Frameworthy”.

Another said, “Surreal experience,” while one user hilariously added, “Haha, next time someone says ‘go to SF,’ I’ll make sure I have my elevator pitch ready if I ever meet someone.” May I collide with a tech titan!”

Sundar Pichai is the India-born CEO of Google and its parent company Alphabet. He was born in 1972 in Madurai, Tamil Nadu and went to IIT Kharagpur in 1989 to study Metallurgical Engineering.
