Bengaluru: Industrialist Anand Mahindra, who is known for his engaging posts, has thrown a competition for his Twitter followers.

The 66-year-old business tycoon and chairman of Mahindra Group said he’s not “thrilled” by Bengaluru being called the ‘Silicon Valley of India’, as it’s too “derivative” and “wannabe”, he wrote in a tweet.

Taking to Twitter he wrote, “A Shuttle between 2 High tech Valleys! Like many, I’m not thrilled by Bengaluru being called silicon Valley of India.’ Too derivative & ‘wannabe.’ What do you think would be a good, original title for India’s High-Tech capital? Haven’t had a caption competition for a while”

In another tweet, Mahindra promised that the best entry in the competition would be gifted a scale replica of Pininfarina’s — a Mahindra company — H2 Speed.

“The Pininfarina H2 Speed won the Best Concept Award at the Geneva Motor Show in 2016. I will consider all entries sent in the next 48 hours from the time of this tweet,” Mahindra added but didn’t clarify where entries were to be sent.

Take a look at some of the suggestion:

Mahindra was reacting to the launch of a non-stop flight between Bengaluru and San Francisco, the latter home to the Silicon Valley where many startups and global tech companies have their headquarters.
