Anand Mahindra is known for bringing to the fore some of the most fascinating content on the internet. This time too, the Mahindra group chairperson has shared a video of a boy and emphasised the need to recognise talent in the country.
Shared on Mr Mahindra’s official Twitter handle, the video features a boy skillfully performing acrobatics on a road in Tirunelveli, Tamil Nadu. The little kid does multiple stunts including front and back flips and even pulls off a 360-flip as onlookers watch in awe.
“And after the Gold rush for India at the Commonwealth Games 2022 the next generation of talent is shaping up. Unsupported. We need to get this talent on the fast track,” Mr Mahindra wrote in the Tweet.
He further shared that the video has been sent to him by a friend who has personally witnessed the boy’s talent in a village in Tirunelveli.
Since being posted, the video has amassed more than 82,000 views on Twitter and also prompted users to praise the talented kid.
Highlighting the ability of the boy, this user hoped that he could one day compete in the Olympics if trained well.
Another wrote how several villages in India are a hub of talent but many go unnoticed and unrecognized.
The boy truly amazed the many of the viewers with his stunts.
Agreeing to Mr Mahindra’s call for spotting talent, one user wrote “There is so much of talent out there, I feel efforts have been made to provide facilities & tap such talented youngsters but there is lot more to do…”
“Gymnastic persons do their practices in their court but here the child doing same thing on the road. Wonderful,” wrote another.
