“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. Ram, can @Mahindralog_MLL make him a Business Associate for last mile delivery?” Mahindra tweeted, tagging Mahindra Logistics and asking the logistics company’s Managing Director and CEO, Rampraveen Swaminathan.

“Sure Anand! We are trying to track him as soon as we can. He will be an asset to our country's supply-chain. A real Superhero.”
