Business tycoon Anand Mahindra recently took to Twitter to share a video of people in a residential colony in West Delhi playing tambola across their balconies while Delhi is under lockdown amid coronavirus pandemic. Mahindra claims to be ‘amazed by the creativity’ of people. The 17-second video clip, in which one can see families sitting in their balconies with tambola tickets while a woman calls out the numbers on a microphone, has been viewed more than 234,000 times.
I will never stop being amazed by the creativity of our people. In Italy, opera singers entertained their neighbours from their homes. But this is even more fun! pic.twitter.com/arfUBDXiQP— anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) March 23, 2020
Since being shared, the video has also garnered over 18,000 likes and more than 2,700 retweets. Several internet users even commented on the video. One Twitter user even asked a question, “How did they distribute the tickets?”. Another user replied saying, “Perhaps they had the ticket by themselves. Or one member could have kept it in the doorsteps. You can never challenge the creativity”.
