Anand Mahindra recently posted a video of the couple and followed it up with another tweet suggesting what could be a great gift for them. Not only has the idea resonated with people on Twitter, even Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw gave it her thumbs up.
In a tweet posted yesterday, Mahindra said: “They may not figure in the Forbes Rich list but in my view, they are amongst the richest people in our country. Their wealth is their attitude to life.” He even added that the next time he’s in Kochi, he would definitely drop by their tea shop.

The tweet is accompanied by a video, originally shared by travel blogger Drew Binsky, which shows a glimpse into the life of Vijayan and Mohana. The couple runs a tea shop called Sree Balaji in Kochi which they started to fulfil their dream to travel the world. Along with the money earned from the shop and with the help of bank loans, Vijayan and Mohana have travelled to over 20 countries.
Following his first tweet about the couple, Mahindra posted another tweet with his idea of the perfect gift for the couple.

Well what about us finding out the date of their wedding anniversary and crowdsourcing the funding for their next trip as an anniversary gift?? https://t.co/gZescVgjQk— anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) January 9, 2019
We can tell them that the present is in return for their teaching us about the gift of life...— anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) January 9, 2019
