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.
