Anand Mahindra on Saturday reacted to the news of the deaths of seven persons of whom four were sanitation workers who died due to the asphyxiation. The workers were cleaning the sewer of a hotel in Gujarat's Vadodara district.
The Chairman of Mahindra Group had a strong reaction where he said that he had enough of this kind of denigration of human life. He also said that he would fund the large-scale production of automated scavenging machines,
"Enough. Enough of this debasement of human life. I had tweeted about an automated scavenging machine—the Bandicoot—developed by young students & many others have also been designed. What’s preventing their widespread adoption? If funding’s needed to produce in scale, count me in," he tweeted.
He also retweeted another account which was offering solutions.
The business tycoon who always tweets on several topics often posts about technology providing solution to everyday needs and issues.
In May, as India was preparing for monsoon, Mahindra shared a cool video of a "DroneBrella — The self-flying umbrella" on his Twitter handle.
The business tycoon wrote: "We focus our attention on cutting edge autonomous cars & vehicles but as the monsoon approaches, I’m more excited by the prospect of autonomous umbrellas!"
He had also shared a video of an interesting innovative 'jugaadu' "Khatiya-vator", which is basically a cot bed attached to a construction vehicle called an excavator.
