Anand Mahindra, who is known for witty replies on Twitter, delivered a sharp comeback when a social media user asked him for an SUV as a birthday gift.
A twitter user named Vipul, who called himself a “big fan” of Mahindra request an SUV for his birthday. To this, Mahindra gave him a word lesson on “Chutzpah”. “Word lesson of the day: ‘CHUTZPAH’,” he tweeted out. He went on to explain the word as “extreme self-confidence or audacity (usually used approvingly).”
The Mahindra Group chairman even used the word in a sentence in an attempt to explain further. “Love him or hate him, you have to admire Vipul’s chutzpah. Full marks for chutzpah, Vipul, but unfortunately I can’t say yes,” he tweeted, adding that “Mera dhanda band ho jaega” (My business will shut down).
