Netizens spare no one, even if you are a billionaire. Anand Mahindra, the Chairman of Mahindra group, is the latest target of trolls. It so happened that he posted a tweet to motivate his followers on Monday and it didn't go down well. Mr Mahindra is quite active on social media and has almost 6.9 million followers on Twitter. In his post, he cited a sher (poem) that read, "Paise jitne katthe kar lo, ji bhar ke moti, Yaad itna zaroor rakhna ki kafan pe jeb nahin hoti." It translates to "earn money as much as you want but remember, in the end, shroud doesn't have a pocket'. He ended the tweet by saying, "It’s never about money... it’s always about meaning..."
Well, a billionaire talking about money does call for attention. While some of the netizens lauded him for being so thoughtful, people had a good laugh too.
Some dug out the irony of this poem coming from a rich man. Some asked him to give his share of money to the needy while some trolled him saying only a wealthy man can say'it's never about money'.

You will be exercising your right, but also expressing your gratitude...”.
