Business tycoon Anand Mahindra has shared a picture of a 'latest technology to dry clothes on Twitter, and it has left Twitterati amused and in splits. On the microblogging site, Mahindra posted a cartoon of two women conversing by an ordinary rope with washed clothes drying over it suspended from both ends in a yard.
"It dries the washing using the latest technology -- a combination of solar and wind power," a woman was seen telling another one. "Sometimes, the 'latest' technology is just about going back to the basics," Mahindra captioned the image. The caricature immediately struck a chord with Twitter users. Many of them filled the comments section with relatable tales.
"Yeah, it should be... the best technology, which make the world a better place to live along with taking care of the environment as well," a user wrote.
"And, it is much more sustainable, the keyword which was always there without we realising but the one which matters most now due to development," another user wrote.
