Anand Mahindra’s Twitter timeline is a wonderbox full of thought-provoking videos. While the Mahindra Group Chairman is known for keeping the morale of his 7.4 million followers high by posting inspirational posts, he is also known for sharing his opinions unabashedly.

The 64-year-old business tycoon recently took to Twitter to share his thoughts on Donald Trump’s maiden India visit.

Sharing a news report by Times of India which talked about Agra’s ‘hurried’ makeover, Mahindra wrote, “Hurried yes, but a pity if we can’t sustain this makeover.” In signature Donald Trump-style, Mahindra quoted the US President’s favoured adjective, writing ‘this is a huge opportunity’.

Elaborating his stance further, the Indian billionaire businessman said that tourism can be used for spurring growth.

In the second tweet of his three-part tweeting spree, Mahindra suggested beautifying the Delhi-Taj circuit for tourists, keeping the place clean and providing a quality experience. To establish his point, the top boss highlighted that everyone in the world wants to do the (Delhi-Taj) route in India at some point.

In his final tweet, Mahindra argued that once Delhi-Taj circuit becomes a world-beating experience, they can deploy similar template to other circuits too. Along with the tweet, the Mahindra top boss shared a beautiful picture of pink flowers blooming in front of Taj Mahal.

Several followers of the business tycoon were all praises for Mahindra’s vision and strategy.

Kudos to Anand Mahindra for recognising the massive, untapped potential of the tourism sector.
