D Krishna Kumar, a 39-year-old man from Mysuru, stole the heart of the netizens after a video of taking his mother on an India tour broke the internet.

Krishna’s father had passed away four years ago, and he has been living with his widowed mother since. A year back, he realised that his mother has barely ever stepped out of home and decided to take the septuagenarian for a tour across India.

Taking a year’s sabbatical, he set off with his mother Choodar on his 20-year-old Bajaj Chetak scooter in 2018 and a video of their travel tales was shared by his friend Manoj Kumar on October 22. The post, which went viral shortly, read:

On October 23, Mahindra group chairman Anand Mahindra, who is a known philanthropist, retweeted the post on his official social media handle.

Touched by the devoted son’s gesture, he also offered to gift a Mahindra KUV 100 NXT to him. Expressing his desire to acknowledge Krishna’s gesture, he wrote:


Touched by Mahindra's generous offer, netizens too, heaped praises on both the tycoon and Krishna.
