A week ago, Indian billionaire businessman Anand Mahindra had shared a cute, heartwarming video of a proposal with his 7.4 million followers. The video showed a man named Lee Loechler cleverly reanimating the Walt Disney classic ‘Sleeping Beauty’ to propose to his girlfriend. It turns out, that CP Gurnani, the MD and CEO of Tech Mahindra, who follows the Mahindra chairman on Twitter, got a chance to reunite with his college friend, all thanks to the tweet by the Mahindra top boss.

Gurnani retweeted Mahindra’s tweet, writing, “he set the bar high indeed”, referring to the man who proposed to his significant other. The Mahindra MD also said that while the proposal had made the entire world excited, it had delighted him for another reason - it gave him a chance to reunite with his old classmate from NIT Rourkela.


In what can be called a happy coincidence, the father of the girl who was being proposed in the video, Sthuthi Lee, happened to be Gurnani’s classmate. JE David, her dad, rekindled his friendship with the Mahindra CEO.

The 61-year-old ended his tweet on a happy note, congratulating Sthuthi.

Mahindra, on the other hand, took notice of Gurnani’s tweet and couldn’t help but appreciate the ‘magic of Twitter’. The top boss reflected on the fact that the woman’s name, Sthuthi, did, in fact, sound Indian. “Delighted you were able to reconnect with a college buddy because of that tweet!”, the 64-year-old wrote.


Twitterati couldn’t help but absolutely adore the ‘add-on’ to the proposal and took to the microblogging site to share their thoughts.




Kudos to Anand Mahindra for giving us all kinds of feels, just in time for Valentine’s Day.
