A throwback image of a famous industrialist has created a chatter on Twitter. The picture is of Anand Mahindra that he himself posted on Twitter while talking about his childhood aspirations. The post has now intrigued people. There is a chance it will have the same effect on you too.
It all started with a Twitter user asking Anand Mahindra about his ambition during his school or college. “@anandmahindra Ji, you are now leading a Giant Mahindra group… But what was your ambition during your School/College days? Have you ever felt like missing some other favourite profession?” they asked. In reply, the business tycoon shared about the time when he wanted to be a filmmaker.
“Easy to answer this. I wanted to be a filmmaker and was studied film in college. My thesis was a film I made at the ‘77 Kumbh Mela. But this pic was while shooting a documentary in a remote village near Indore. Anyone old enough to guess which handheld 16mm camera I was using?” he wrote. He also shared a throwback image with his tweet.
