Business tycoon Anand Mahindra reached into his famed "WhatsApp wonder box" once again to share an amusing clip with his 6.9-million Twitter followers. The hilarious clip shows a teacher pronouncing the word 'knowledge' rather literally - ignoring the silent 'k'. Using the video to underscore how English can be a funny language, Mr Mahindra wrote: "Yup, it's funny, but I think it also underscores how practical Indians are & how illogical English spelling is!!"

Watch the video below, and put your headphones on for this:

Since being shared online on Sunday, the video has collected over 7,000 'likes' and 'retweets', along with over one lakh views.

Some took to the comments section to point out that the video wasn't a real-life scene, but a clip by comedian Gaurav Gera.

Many joined the fun and shared more examples of illogically-spelled words in English
