Anand Mahindra is known for bringing to the fore some of the most fascinating content on the internet. This time too, the Mahindra group chairperson has shared a video of a boy and emphasised the need to recognise talent in the country.
Shared on Mr Mahindra’s official Twitter handle, the video features a boy skillfully performing acrobatics on a road in Tirunelveli, Tamil Nadu. The little kid does multiple stunts including front and back flips and even pulls off a 360-flip as onlookers watch in awe.
“And after the Gold rush for India at the Commonwealth Games 2022 the next generation of talent is shaping up. Unsupported. We need to get this talent on the fast track,” Mr Mahindra wrote in the Tweet.
