It's good to be the king: Tim Cook zoomed from Coachella to India

Fresh from being spotted on Sunday at the annual Coachella music and arts festival in California, Tim Cook is already in India on a tour taking in the new Apple stores.

Coachella and Apple go back a long way, and this weekend, Cook took the 476 mile trip from Apple Park to be there. He just then immediately took an approximately 8,700 mile trip to be in Mumbai on Monday.

Vada Pav is a vegetarian fast food dish, like a potato fritter, from Maharashtra, the Indian state that includes Mumbai. Cook's dining companion is actor Madhuri Dixit Nene, who with her husband has met Cook before.

Just hours before meeting with her, Cook was photographed at the Coachella festival in Indio, California.

In most of the very many shots of Cook at Coachella this year — and last year, too — he's carrying a water bottle. It's a music festival and he's on water — which might be how he can look so fresh after what's typically a 22-hour flight from California to Mumbai.

Cook's tour is centered on the opening of Apple's first two Apple Stores in India ever, and as well as taking in the local foods, he's using the trip to meet with the country's Prime Minister.
