Industrialist Anand Mahindra has been known for his generous demeanor. Many a time, Mahindra has appreciated people’s creativity and courage through his social media handles. Recently, the industrialist has been all praises for the courage of a laborer in his recent tweet.
A few days ago, Shobharam, a laborer in Dhar district of Madhya Pradesh, had traveled 105 km by bicycle to get his son Ashish the 10th paper. When the news reached Mahindra, he decided to help them in the best possible way.
He announced on Twitter that he will bear all the expenses to ensure that the boy gets the best education possible. In his tweet, he called Shobharam ‘A heroic parent.’ and urged the journalists to help his team connect with the family so that he can support the son’s education.
A heroic parent. One who dreams big for his children. These are the aspirations that fuel a nation’s progress. At @MahindraRise we call it a Rise story. Our Foundation would be privileged to support Aseesh’s further Education. Could the journalist please connect us? pic.twitter.com/KsVVy6ptMU

It seems that Mahindra’s generosity known no bounds and as long as influential people like Mahindra are there in the country, common man still has hope that good things are just around the corner.
However, there are many fathers’ and mother’s and even children who going the extra mile for their loved ones that go unnoticed many a time. We hope that the central and state governments extend their help and support to them as that his the help that will reach the masses.
