Watch: Anand Mahindra keeps his promise and gives Idli Amma a new home on Mother’s Day: The Tribune India
Chandigarh, May 8
Anand Mahindra is known to be magnanimous towards talented but overlooked people. It always has something to offer people who tend to serve bigger purposes in their lives. One such classic example is Idli Amma from Tamil Nadu, who was gifted a house by the business tycoon.
A video of Idli Amma, 86, who has been selling idlis with sambhar and chutney for about 37 years for just Re 1, went viral last year. In a heartwarming gesture, Anand noticed her and promised her a home so she could continue serving people her famous home cooking.
Keeping her promise on the auspicious occasion of Mother’s Day, Anand shared a video of Idli Amma taking possession of her house. “Immense gratitude to our team for completing the construction of the house in time to present it to Idli Amma on #MothersDay. She is the embodiment of the virtues of a mother: nurturing, caring and selfless. A privilege to be able to support and her work. Happy Mother’s Day to all of you!” Anand wrote in his tweet.
