Anand Mahindra is nothing short of a wordsmith as his response to a man, who asked him for a car, has left the internet in splits. Vipul, a Twitter user, posted a message for Mahindra, saying that he is a “big fan”. But it didn’t stop at that as he asked Mahindra whether he could gift him a Thar on his birthday.”Sir.. Big fan of yours. Can you gift me a Mahindra Thar on my bday,” the user asked in a tweet along with a tongue-in-cheek emoticon. Of course, Mahindra responded to the user and full marks to him for it.To begin with, Mahindra defined Chutzpah for Vipul as “extreme self-confidence or audacity,” and added, “Full marks for chutzpah, Vipul, but unfortunately I can’t say yes. Mera dhandha bandh ho jayega!”Major ROFL, right? Read Anand Mahindra’s tweet:Word lesson of the day:CHUTZPAH/xtsp,htsp/nounextreme self-confidence or audacity (usually used approvingly).”love him or hate him, you have to admire Vipul’s chutzpah”Full marks for chutzpah, Vipul, but unfortunately I can’t say yes.

Manchester United star Paul Pogba has hit back after receiving waves of sickening racist abuse on Twitter, affirming that such vitriol only made him a stronger person. The midfielder found himself the subject of abuse on Monday after missing a penalty in United’s 1-1 draw with Wolves. Twitter responded by promising to meet with club representatives and crack down on hateful messages on the social media platform, while Pogba also attracted support from across the world of football following the abuse.

Racist behaviour has no place on our platform and we strongly condemn it” a spokesman for the company told Sky Sports News.”To this end, we look forward to working more closely with our partners to develop shared solutions together. In the meantime, for Twitter’s part, we will continue to proactively monitor the conversation, and take aggressive enforcement action when content violates our rules.”But the situation was repeated on Saturday, this time with Marcus Rashford in the eye of the storm after erring from the spot as United went down 2-1 to Crystal Palace. Pogba has now come out to confront his abusers, slamming their “ignorance” and promising that they would not get the better of him. “My ancestors and my parents suffered for my generation to be free today, to work, to take the bus, to play football,” he wrote on Twitter. “Racist insults are ignorance and can only make me stronger and motivate me to fight for the next generation.”My ancestors and my parents suffered for my generation to be free today, to work, to take the bus, to play football. Racist insults are ignorance and can only make me stronger and motivate me to fight for the next generation. pic.twitter.com/J9IqyWQj4K— Paul Pogba (@paulpogba) August 25, 2019United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer also addressed the issue on Saturday after seeing Rashford targeted by racial slurs.“We need to stop it, it needs to stop,” the 46-year-old said after the Palace clash.“I’m just lost for words if it keeps going. We keep having all these campaigns and they keep hiding behind fake identities. It’s crazy that we talk about this in 2019.”Rashford had also defended Pogba after he came in for vile slurs after Monday’s game .“Manchester United is a family. Paul Pogba is a huge part of that family, when you attack him, you attack us all,” the England striker said on Twitter.
