Mahindra Group chairman Anand Mahindra on Thursday took to Twitter to express an important message in context to the Russian-Ukrainian crisis

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday announced special military operations on the eastern Ukrainian areas as the former launched a barrage of missile, artillery and air attacks early today. 

On Thursday Mahindra shared a video shared by Breaking4news, where one can see wet roads and a few cars. Taken from the rooftop, the video captures the eerie air raid sirens in the background. 

Mahindra highlighted those air raid sirens in his tweet. 

The Mahindra Group chairman shared a valuable note saying “the world doesn’t seem to have learned any lessons". He points out that he lived through the Sino-Indian War in 1965 and the Bangladesh Liberation War in 1971, wherein these sirens were an everyday. 

He further goes on to remind people of the 2006 terrorist attack on Mumbai, where the same sirens made a come back. Mahindra shares that these siren sounds, heard in the video, reminds him of those nightmarish times when the world was broken in war. 

“I have lived through two wars during my childhood: ‘65 & ‘71. And I remember how spine chilling it was when air raid sirens went off in Mumbai. This sound has reawakened those nightmarish memories. The world doesn’t seem to have learned any lessons…", the Tweet read.

Mahindra snubs take on Stock Market Values  

Mahindra group chairman Anand Mahindra also took to Twitter to highlight the fact that during a global crisis, like that of the Russian-Ukrainian conflict that has rocked the world, the stock market values lose all relevance.

The Mahindra group chairman further mentioned that stock market values are only a indicative of ‘the suspension of normalcy!’.

Mahindra asked his readers to practice Yoga in order to remain calm during this global crisis. He suggested breathing in deeply and holding onto one's breath for as long as they possibly can. 

In the tweet Mahindra shared a news article that pointed out that Sensex crashed 2,702 points and Nifty ended below 16,300 following the Russian attack on east Ukrainian areas.

“In times of global crises like this, stock market values lose all relevance except to signal the suspension of normalcy! If you are a practitioner of yoga & pranayama it will come in handy now. Breathe in deeply & hold your breath for as long as you can…", the tweet read.
