Mumbai floods have spared none, be it the citizens, the streets, roads or cars. From the Mahindra Boleroto Tata Jaguar, every drive is struggling its way through the city that is currently more of a seascape. While some people have succumbed to the situation, others are trying to laugh their way out of it.
Recently, a car advice platform spotted a Jaguar stuck in the floods, and a Bolero tearing its way through the water ‘like a boss’. While it was a witty compliment for the Mahindra and Mahindra Group, the company’s chairman did not seem impressed with the contest. Anand Mahindra, who is popular for ruling the boardroom and Twitter at the same time with his wit, left his followers happy with yet another smart response.
While playing around with the headline of the post, Mahindra pointed out at the ‘unfair contest’ that compared the Jaguar to a Bolero. He explained that both the cars are created for different purposes. However, towards the end, the business veteran reiterated that this is the reason why Bolero is his favourite drive.
We won’t brag over this. It’s an unfair contest.The Bolero’s meant to negotiate such landscapes (seascapes?)But now you know why the Bolero’s my favourite vehicle to drive. “Jaguar gets stuck in Mumbai floods: Mahindra Bolero drives through like a BOSS “ https://t.co/c2jXg92uWY— anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) 4 September 2019
