Anand Mahindra is all praise for a Punjab woman who drives an auto to earn a living after her husband’s death. The industrialist shared a picture of Paramjit Kaur, who became the first woman to purchase a Mahindra electric auto in Punjab. The three-wheeler has becoming a source of income for Kaur, who is raising her daughters as a single mother and the sole bread-winner of her family.


Anand Mahindra, chairman of Mahindra Group, hailed her an “inspiration” as he shared a picture of Paramjit Kaur in her electric autorickshaw. Kaur is the proud owner of an e-Alfa Mini, Mahindra's all-electric passenger autorickshaw.


“Mid-week Inspiration: Paramjit Kaur, our first female Treo customer in Punjab. After losing her husband, she became the sole bread earner. Her E Alfa Mini helps her support her daughters, one of whom is now in college,” Anand Mahindra wrote on Twitter while sharing the picture. “She showed how to Rise against the odds.”

His post on Kaur has received nearly 8,000 ‘likes’ and hundreds of comments on the microblogging platform, with many commending the woman’s determination to educate her daughters.
