A man identified as Dakshinmurthy Krishna Kumar from Mysore has left his banking job in order to take his mom on a pilgrimage. That news spread like wildfire on the social media platform and it did even reach out to business magnate Anand Mahindra.

When Kumar’s mother in 70s wanted to visit Hampi, he didn’t even hesitate to quit his job to take her on a lengthy yatra of holy places, reports The New Indian Express.

In what appeared straight out of a movie scene, Kumar took off on his 20-year-old scooter with his mother riding pillion. Covering a wide range of distance of almost 25,000 kms, the mother-son eventually travelled through states namely- Karnataka, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, and Maharashtra respectively.

Kumar’s story and a video capturing a part of his wonderful journey went viral on Twitter and it managed to capture the attention of Anand Mahindra who is now keen on finding Krishna Kumar because he wants to gift a car to him.

“I’d like to personally gift him a Mahindra KUV 100 NXT so he can drive his mother in a car on their next journey,” wrote Mahindra.

“This is a Gap Year I wish I had! Dakshinmurthy Krishna Kumar from Mysore left his banking job and travelled with his mom on a scooter. A total of 48100 KMs. The reason? His mother had not stepped out of her town & he wished to show her India! #TuesdayMotivation,” Twitter user wrote.
