Anand Mahindra is known for his inspirational and thoughtful social media posts. This time as well, his tweet was no different. To provide motivation to the internet, he used the video of a crane moving through flood. The video shows how a crane is carrying 8 people, and crossing a waterlogged road in Bengaluru. Some of the people are standing on the blade. One of them can be seen carrying a bag. This indicates that they might have been going to work. “I second that thought. Where there’s a will, there’s a way…”, Mahindra captioned his retweet. The clip was originally tweeted with the caption, “Innovation Hub for a reason.”.
