For a cobbler in Haryana, life took a 360 degrees turn when his banner caught the attention of Anand Mahindra, business mogul and the chairman of Mahindra Group.

Mahindra, who is known for his gestures of generosity, posted this tweet after receiving the picture of the cobbler’s stall on WhatsApp.

Never the one to leave things at just appreciation, Anand Mahindra asked his team to track down the man and help him expand his ‘startup’. 

And they did. 

As mentioned in the tweet, the man asked for a ‘good workspace’ and Mahindra is now making sure he gets it. 

He sent his design team to understand the man’s requirements and produce ideas for kiosks, which can also be used by other roadside vendors.

He also asked for advice from his followers, and they delivered. 

It is heartwarming when people that are more privileged than many, take the time out to help out the ones in need. 


We should appreciate him and learn from what he has done to help others in whatever way we can.
