Entrepreneur Glorifies Overwork Saying He’d Love To Work 26 Hrs/Day, Twitter ‘Grinds’ Him

There is no doubt that work plays an important role in our lives, while it gives us identification in the society, it is also a medium for us to earn money and live a good life.

Raj Shamani tweeted, “If there were 25 hours a day, I’d still want to work 26 hours. It’s not that I am a workaholic, I just f*cking love the grind”.

Soon, people started reacting on this tweet and he was mercilessly slammed for promoting toxic work culture. Here are some selected reactions:
