New Delhi: Mahindra Group Chairman Anand Mahindra's humorous replies on the social media was once again on display as he tweeted about serving of 'samosas' instead of hamburgers if the White House organised a conclave for tech industry titans, amusing his followers on Twitter.

It began when Anand Mahindra congratulated Arvind Krishna on his appointment as IBM's next CEO. He tweeted: "What a stunning endorsement of the managerial capabilities of Indian-origin managers. Satya, Sundar, Shantanu & Arvind running four US tech giants. This places a responsibility on Indian managers to demonstrate that they can take Indian companies to the top as well...!"

He wrote in another tweet: "On a lighter note, the next time the White House organises a conclave of tech industry titans, they'll have to ensure the snacks are samosas and not hamburgers...."

Most tweeple found the tweet hilarious and praised Mahindra for his sense of humour.

A user wrote: "And since all are Indians they will 'daba ke' eat and then say 'khana itna khaas nahi tha'."

Another wrote: "Don't think so, idli, dosa etc are regular for them. Samosas, vada-pavs, chole bhature, pani-puri, pav-bhaji etc are treats never to skip!!!"

A post read: "I wish someone from India soon heads Cisco too... then, we can call them MAGIC 5 (Microsoft, Adobe, Google, IBM, Cisco )."

A tweeple remarked: "It could be medu vadaas also, considering that Satya and Sundar are in the lineup!"
