Anand Mahindra's tweet has collected many reactions on Twitter.

NEW DELHI:  Anand Mahindra didn't mince his word when he delivered an epic burn on an article published by The New York Times. The article, which talks about the benefits of deep breathing, explains how scientists at Stanford University "may have uncovered for the first time why taking deep breaths can be so calming". It goes on to detail results from research conducted on mice to draw this inference. "Does it take Stanford researchers with a lab full of mice to tell you what yogis knew aeons (sic) ago?" says Mr Mahindra on Twitter. Since being posted on April 9, the tweet has collected over 5,500 'likes' and almost 5,000 retweets.

Here's how many others reacted:
