Anand Mahindra, chairman of Mahindra group who is known for the knack of his entrepreneurship skills is active on the social media platform more often than not. He always chips in with interesting, inspiring and entertaining posts.
He has won millions of hearts once again with his heart-touching gesture. Anand Mahindra recently took to his Twitter handle to appreciate the efforts of a 19-year-old as he ran away to Shimla to live on his own and become something big in life. The leading industrialist of the country had offered an internship to him.
It should be noted that Dwarkesh Thakkar is the son of a millionaire oil trader Rakesh Thakker. Mahindra’s tweet read, “Doing a Sunday catch-up on my reading. I admire this young man. He wanted to strike out on his own. He may seem just like an eccentric runaway, but he could also be tomorrow’s successful, independent entrepreneur. I’d be happy to offer him an internship at @MahindraRise!”
When enquired about the tweet and the job offer, Dwarkesh in an interview with Times Of India told that it is a great opportunity for him. “It is a great opportunity for me and I will definitely take it up if I can get in touch with anyone from the company.”
Rakesh Thakkar also added in an interview with TOI that Dwarkesh his son has had just one ambition in his career which is to make it big on his own one day.
Dwarkesh, an engineering student was attending college in Padra on October 14 but he did not return home. With just Rs.1,250 in his pocket, he ended up taking a train to the national capital and was later found after a month by 2 Vadodra police officers during the Diwali holidays.
He was washing utensils in a hotel in Shimla and was sleeping on the roads.
According to the report, he had been working in this hotel for over a month and Dwarkesh had no interest to continue with his engineering because he wanted to prove himself to his family. This is the main reason why he ran away from his home.
