The Twitter handle of Mahindra Group Chairman and one of India's biggest business tycoons, Anand Mahindra, is a treasure trove of inspiring, interesting and witty tweets. He also imparts important life lessons to his 10 million followers on Twitter with his 'Monday Motivation.'

With his thought-provoking post, Mr. Mahindra emphasized the need to be present in the moment and urged his followers to let go of the past and move forward. "If you must look back, do so forgivingly. If you will look forward, do so prayerfully. But the wisest course would be to be present in the present gratefully,'' reads a picture quote attributed to Maya Angelou.
He also shared a few words of wisdom along with the picture and tweeted, ''One of my favourite authors/poets. Her advice is consistent with our ancient teachings. There is no more invigorating way of starting a new week than by anchoring yourself in the present moment...Last week was just that-last week.''
