Entrepreneur indeed !
Replying to the tweet, the business giant praised Harbajan Kaur. In his caption, he wrote that nowadays when people hear the word entrepreneur, they immediately think about millennials who are sitting in Silicon Valley or Bengaluru. Mahindra added that Harbhajan Kaur was also an entrepreneur and that her image should also come up whenever we think of entrepreneurs in the future.
When you hear the word ‘start-up’ it brings to mind images of millennials in Silicon Valley or Bengaluru trying to build billion dollar ‘unicorns.’ From now on let’s also include a 94 yr old woman who doesn’t think it’s too late to do a start-up. She’s my entrepreneur of the year https://t.co/N75BxK18z4— anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) January 7, 2020
Anand Mahindra's tweet has already garnered over 3,500 likes. One user commented that passion and determination and the will to do something in their lives has no age limit.
Another user thanked Mahindra for sharing the inspirational video and for motivating people to go move away from a state of inertia.
In similar news, Mahindra introduced netizens with a fresh perspective over the role of mobile phones in people's daily lives. The billionaire entrepreneur took to his favourite social media platform Twitter to share a video of a speech-impaired man communicating with someone over a video call on his smartphone. His caption is what triggers a thoughtful approach to the extent to which technology impacts one's life.
We often criticise the way in which mobile devices have taken over our world.. It’s good to remind ourselves that these devices have also OPENED up a whole new world of communication for many of us... pic.twitter.com/kricI2dNeG— anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) December 27, 2019
