Mahindra Group CEO, Anand Mahindra, sure has a knack for engaging his Twitter audience. On Tuesday morning, the billionaire tweeted a beautiful photo of a sunset in Alibaug. He compared the view with a Mark Rothko painting. His innocuous tweet somehow inspired people to share stunning sunset pictures from around the world. The tweets offered people a much-needed respite by showcasing soothing sunset views.

Soon the thread became a beautiful chronicle of sunsets from small villages in Madhya Pradesh to Sydney in Australia. The CEO also retweeted some of the photographs and said in a tweet “Whoa! This is turning into a ‘World Cup’ of sunsets. All teams/entries welcome, in that case!”

While sharing the last RT of the sunset thread, he said, “And let me make this the last RT. Because, at the end of the day, the most important & memorable sunsets are not necessarily those that are the most visually spectacular, but those that are part of our own, personal experiences.”

However, couldn’t “resist retweeting” another one seeing a spectacular image later.

Due to heavy pollution in Indian cities, a clear sky has become a rarity that only makes splendid sunsets and sunrises even more precious.
