A single tweet can have huge power and yield massive results as is the case with this one posted by Anand Mahindra. The business tycoon, known for sharing some interesting and wonderful posts on Twitter, shared one about an octogenarian in Coimbatore who runs her own business. In his tweet Mahindra offered to invest in her business and now thanks to his tweet, gifts are pouring in for the woman and her business.
It all started when on September 10 Mahindra tweeted a video about the woman. “One of those humbling stories that make you wonder if everything you do is even a fraction as impactful as the work of people like Kamalathal,” he tweeted. He added that he’d love to invest in her business by buying her an LPG fuelled stove since she has been using a wooden one till now.
One of those humbling stories that make you wonder if everything you do is even a fraction as impactful as the work of people like Kamalathal. I notice she still uses a wood-burning stove.If anyone knows her I’d be happy to ‘invest’ in her business & buy her an LPG fueled stove. pic.twitter.com/Yve21nJg47— anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) September 10, 2019
The tweet has since gone viral and collected over 38,200 likes and more than 10,300 retweets – and still counting.
Mahindra even offered to help her with a continued supply of LPG after a Twitter user wrote to him.
I’m happy to support the continued supply of LPG. Our company teams in the area will, I’m sure, be happy to provide assistance too. https://t.co/ccUnIBCfGN— anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) September 11, 2019
“The wood smoke isn’t good for her health. She can make the choice though,” Mahindra wrote on Twitter.
Now, as it turns out, at least two gas companies have reached out to Kamalathal and offered her gifts. In a tweet, Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited, Coimbatore wrote about issuing an LPG connection for her.
Several people are praising Mahindra and all those who have helped Kamalathal.
“Dear Anand sir. Your support had made this possible. A tweet can change life of someone if it’s a positive tweet,” says a Twitter user. “Wonderful gesture extended at your end for a noble cause; it shows how a tweet can help some who is working selflessly for a noble cause,” says another.
This is, however, not the only instance where social media changed someone’s life for better. Earlier, a video of two kids performing somersaults went viral and the duo eventually, got a chance to join Sports Authority of India.
