Now the best part of this story is that this video was also recognised by the Chairman of Mahindra and Mahindra Group, Anand Mahindra.
He tagged the President of Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd Farm Equipment Sector on the tweet and suggested that the team have a closer look so that they can market the machine.
How cool is this? The device not only seems effective & does the job, but also looks elegantly designed with a minimum of weight. @rajesh664 can your team look at this more closely & see whether we can market Mr. Bhat’s device as part of our Farm solutions portfolio? https://t.co/4O0y2DmBzh— anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) June 18, 2019
