Tech industrialist Anand Mahindra is known for his social media presence and skills to promote positive messages. From sharing motivational examples to cracking jokes at times, Mahindra knows how to hold up his audience on Twitter.
On Friday, the tech genius took an opportunity to share his opinion on the ways to fight COVID-19. Sharing a clip of a 70-year-old vehicle attempting to cross a massive crack, Mahindra suggested how off-road skills might come handy at times. The vehicle belongs to World War II, with no modern tech, huge tyres or power steering.
His tweet read, “Lost count of the number of people who have forwarded this clip to me. No surprise that they’d think I’d enjoy it. But I also see it as a visual metaphor for how all of us are attempting to negotiate the perils of Covid-19 & its impact on our lives: We need ‘off-road’ skills!”
