Mahindra Group Chairman Anand Mahindra said he was convinced Mr Mistry was destined for greatness. ” If life had other plans for him, so be it, but life itself should not have been snatched away from him,” he added.

Hard to digest this news. I got to know Cyrus well during his all-too-brief tenure as the head of the House of Tata. I was convinced he was destined for greatness. If life had other plans for him, so be it, but life itself should not have been snatched away from him. Om Shanti 🙏🏽 https://t.co/lOu37Vs8U1
