A social media user, who said he was “big fan” of the Mahindra Group Chairman, made the request in a tweet. “Sir.. Big fan of yours. Can you gift me a Mahindra Thar on my bday… (sic),” Vipul, the social media user, tweeted.
While he may not have expected a reply to his post, Mr Mahindra overwhelmed him with a retweet and a witty reply.
“Love him or hate him, you have to admire Vipul’s chutzpah,” the 64-year-old industrialist wrote. He also defined the term “chutzpah” in his tweet: “extreme self-confidence or audacity (usually used approvingly)”.
Word lesson of the day:
extreme self-confidence or audacity (usually used approvingly).
"love him or hate him, you have to admire Vipul’s chutzpah"
Full marks for chutzpah, Vipul, but unfortunately I can’t say yes. Mera dhandha bund ho jayega! 😊 https://t.co/wzsUsCZBkM
