Elon Musk’s tweets have been getting a lot of attention, especially after his Twitter acquisition. Every post he notes on Twitter has been filled with comments with speculations about his next move after Twitter. In a recent tweet, Musk tweeted about his 2007 visit to India and raved about the Taj Mahal, which he called “truly a wonder of the world”. The entrepreneur was responding to a tweet about the facade of the Agra fort.
Soon after he posted the tweet, its comment section has been filled with doubts regarding his visit to Agra. The Tesla CEO recently announced taking over Twitter, and also praised the architecture of the Agra fort as “amazing”. In his post, he is praising the delicate glasswork motifs on the marble pillar at Agra’s Red Fort. As similar work is also seen on the walls and minarets of the Taj Mahal, Musk spoke about his visit to the marble mausoleum, built by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan for his beloved wife Mumtaz.
However, the post created a buzz over the internet as many netizens wondered if it can become his next ‘purchase’ after Twitter. Later his mother Maye Musk also shared an anecdote about Musk’s grandparent’s visit to the famous monument. She wrote, “In 1954, your grandparents flew to the Taj Mahal from South Africa, on their way to Australia. The only people to ever do this trip in a single-engine propeller plane, without a radio or GPS”.
Moreover, there were mixed reactions to Musk’s Taj Mahal visit. Some of the desi fans say they had no idea Musk had visited India earlier. While some invited him back to the country, others expected his electric cars to be available here as well. Hilariously, Paytm founder Vijay Shekhar Sharma chipped in with a query about when Mr. Musk will visit India to deliver the first Tesla.
