Google CEO Sundar Pichai extended his Diwali greetings on Sunday, sharing a photo captured by a photographer from Tamil Nadu. The tech leader, originally from Chennai, mentioned that the photo was taken using a Google Pixel phone, continuing a tradition inspired by Apple CEO Tim Cook, who, on each Diwali, shares photos taken on iPhones by users in India.
Mr Pichai shared a photo clicked by photographer Madhan Mohan Ram and wrote, "In honor of Diwali celebrations this weekend, enjoying photos taken by #TeamPixel over the years - here's one from @madhanmohan_r. Wishing all who celebrate a fun and festive Diwali."
Last year, Mr Pichai shared a picture of a girl celebrating Diwali with lightning sparkles.
Mr Mohan thanked Mr Pichai for sharing his picture. "Thanks a lot @sundarpichai sir wishing you very happy Diwali to you and your family," he wrote.
