At 11 am, CEO Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, opened the doors of the company’s first physical store in India at Mumbai’s Jio World Drive in Bandra Kurla Complex. Hundreds of users and tech lovers had waited outside the store. Among them, a very privileged user managed to see the Apple CEO, named Mumbai resident Purav, who had been waiting outside the shop since 8:00 pm the previous evening in hopes of meeting Tim Cook and getting him to autograph on Apple ipods.

Purav was the first buyer to visit the Apple BKC store after Cook allowed the general public to enter, therefore his dream came true. Tim Cook gave him a hug and autographed his 10-year-old iPod as he was making his way inside the BKC store. Once his dream came true in real life, the man was very ecstatic.

Yet it wasn’t a cakewalk for Purva. To make sure they were one of the first individuals who would enter the Apple store, Purva and his two other friends, Madhav and Kartik had to wait outside for over 15 hours. The three of them used online food applications to get their dinners for the night as they slept on a bench outside of the store. And in the morning at 4 Am they again queue up outside the store.

It’s interesting to note that all three of them (Purva, Kartik, Madhav) had connected via Twitter, and their first real-world meeting took place outside the store.

This might be Apple’s first store in India, but if you need proof of just how much mind share it has in India… Here it is!

Besides, someone else also gets the chance to meet the CEO. Sajid Moeenudin, a UX designer and dedicated Apple enthusiast, expressed his joy at the opening of the new Apple store in Mumbai.

Sajid shared his extensive history with Apple products, even disclosing that he had purchased an antique Macintosh back in 1984. Dressed in the iconic turtleneck style that Apple co-founder Steve Jobs was known for, Sajid impressed Apple CEO Tim Cook with his prized possession and happily posed for pictures while the store’s employees and onlookers cheered.
