Viral video: Awestruck by a double amputee’s courage, Anand Mahindra offers him a job

Screengrab from video tweeted by Anand Mahindra.

Awestruck by the courage of a quadruple amputee who commutes around in a jugaad vehicle in Delhi to earn a living, Industrialist Anand Mahindra has offered him a job.

In a video that has gone viral, the man, who has no arms or legs, demonstrates how he manages to steer the vehicle around despite having no limbs. 

"I have a wife, two small children and an old father, so I go out to earn," the man said. He also said that he has been driving his vehicle for five years.

Sharing the video on Twitter, the Chairman of Mahindra Group applauded the man and wrote: "Received this on my timeline today. Don't know how old it is or where it's from, but I'm awestruck by this gentleman who's not just faced his disabilities but is GRATEFUL for what he has."

He further tagged his colleague Ram and Mahindra Logistics as he asked: "Ram, can @Mahindralog_MLL make him a Business Associate for last mile delivery?"

Other Twitter users pitched in to say that the man was from Delhi and they had seen him moving around in the southern part of the national capital.
