Is the Indian economy an Elephant or a Tiger? Anand Mahindra


Mahindra Group supremo and Padma awardee Anand Mahindra likened the Indian economy to an elephant in a recent tweet. He also mentioned that the economy was “termed a Tiger as its growth sped up.”

Mahindra stated that the world should not count us out, adding that India always finds a way to get over obstacles in its way. To illustrate his point further, the industrialist shared a video of an elephant that attempts to cross a bridge and finally succeeds at it, albeit a bit awkwardly.

“The Indian economy is often referred to as an Elephant. More recently, it was termed a Tiger as its growth sped up. Well, even if it’s an Elephant, this shows that you should never count us out; we always find a way – no matter how awkward- to get over hurdles in our way!,” Mahindra tweeted.

Mahindra’s recent tweet has garnered numerous likes and retweets at the time of writing this story.

This, however, is not the only time that Mahindra expressed pride in the India growth story. He retweeted a tweet by Union Road Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari on the indigenously developed destroyer ship INS Vishakhapatnam.

“Every such completed Make-In-India defence product constitutes a huge rise in the reservoir of indigenous, cutting-edge tech,” he tweeted.

The Mumbai-based business mogul was also in the news for threatening legal action against an Instagram page that falsely attributed a quote to him.

He shared a screenshot of the quote followed by two memes which he said he will share every time he spots fake news. “As a colleague told me: ‘It looks it’s a hunting season on you with miscreants on the internet.’

Another completely fabricated quote falsely attributed to me. I’ll be taking legal action. Meanwhile, I’m going to post the 2 memes to the right, below, whenever I spot more fakes!,” he said in a tweet.
