'Incredible' photo lifts Anand Mahindra's Sunday; will inspire you too
Mahindra not just found the photo "incredible" and "inspirational" but also tried to arrange help for the teacher.
Twitter is an amazing place. While it's often in the news for wrong reasons, thanks to army of trolls operating night and day, it is also often a place where one can get motivated in a flash! This happened to industrialist Anand Mahindra today. A powerful photo "lifted" his Sunday and certainly it will inspire many.
The photo shows a divyaang man teaching a class of students, apparently in Rajashthan. A user named Anita Chauhan shared the photo, saying, "Meet a real hero Sanjay Sen, a physically challenged man, teaching at a village school in Rajasthan under the Shiksha Sambal Project since 2009."
Later, another Twitter user named Satyam Wadaa shared the tweet, tagging Anand Mahindra and Infosys Foundation, seeking corporate charity to offer Sanjay Sen a mobile chair or useful equipment for teaching comfortably.
Mahindra not just found the photo "incredible" and "inspirational" but also tried to arrange help for the teacher. "What an incredible photo which has lifted my Sunday. Sends such a strong message about the power of education.Not sure if he wants any device, but if he does we will step up. @SheetalMehta we are in the business of ‘mobility.’Can we help this inspirational teacher be more mobile?," tweeted Mahindra. Mehta of Nanhi Kali replied: "Certainly will reach out to this amazing teacher Sanjay Sen and understand how we can help him. Requesting @anita_chauhan80 to please help with his contact details or the location of his school."
In the past also, Mahindra has helped inspiring individuals working in difficult conditions.
