Netizens quickly responded to Mahindra's tweet with pictures and videos of other places where Navratri celebrations are happening with much pomp and enthusiasm.

Businessman Anand Mahindra thinks no one can beat Mumbai in Navratri celebrations, not even Garba-land Gujarat. On Tuesday, sharing footage of Navratri celebrations from Mumbai’s Marine drive, he tweeted that there is ‘no place like Mumbai during Navratri', jokingly adding that he might hear ‘howls of protest’ from Gujarat for his claims.

( I know I’m going to hear howls of protest from cities in Gujarat!” Mahindra Group’s chairman’s tweet read with a smiley face at the end.
