How do you get out of something you don't want to do? Ask business tycoon Anand Mahindra. On Sunday, when Mr Mahindra's wife asked him to cook, he had an excuse ready. And while his response may not have amused his wife, it's definitely left Twitter laughing.
Talking about the incident on the microblogging website, Mr Mahindra wrote: "A rainy weekend & we're staying home. My wife asked me if I wanted to help cook some interesting dishes."
In response, Mr Mahindra sent her a picture of a man ironing a chapati on a plate to convince her he wasn't up to the task. "I sent her this picture saying this is how I work & asked if she was sure my skills were relevant..." he wrote.

The post has collected over 18,000 'likes' and hundreds of amused comments.
"So that she won't ask you again? She will see through this and you will be on ironing duties as well," joked one person, to which Mr Mahindra quipped: "Aaaah you figured out my strategy!"
