Industrialist Anand Mahindra, who rarely misses sharing what catches his eye on social media, on Tuesday, tweeted a photo of an Adidas shoe rip-off, offering an explanation linking the original brand and the duplicate.
The white sneaker in Mahindra’s tweet has “Ajitdas” written on it. Except for that, it looks nearly similar to an Adidas shoe.“Completely logical. It just means that Adi has a brother called Ajit. Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam (The world is one family)?” Mahindra tweeted.

The photo, which collected over 10,000 ‘likes’ in a few hours, prompted many others on Twitter to share similarly-sounding names of the duplicate versions of well-known brands.
In November last year, Mahindra, 67, had highlighted a company that makes sneakers made out of garbage. He had also hinted at a promise to invest in the company, Thaely, when they raise funds.
