We are living in a country which is full of talent. Here, you will find talent in every nook and corner of the streets. However, the only lacking is the people in power coming out to support the talent to make them reach new heights.
But Anand Mahindra, the chairman of Mahindra Group, is known for his big heart and down to earth nature. Recently, he offered to help a very talented 60-year-old specially-abled entrepreneur, praising his story as “fabulous”.
The 60-year-old man who has blown everyone’s mind with his talent is Mr.Vikas Patel who makes vehicles using waste electronic materials, that are not harming the environment and parts of old electronic items.
Recently, in an interview, Mr. Patel revealed that he had built 7-battery operated bikes out of waste materials. He said:
“People throw away waste but I’m making bikes out of it. I want to make 3-wheelers for divyangs that can also carry their families simultaneously,”
A Twitter user shared the story of this talented man on social media. Sharing the video of Mr. Patel the twitter user wrote:

Inspiring you are Mr Mahindra @anandmahindra . India needs such leaders who can create leaders in their own humble capacity and contribute to their personal elavtion and national growth. Keeping aside a monetary bucket to help micro entrepreneurs is a noble thought. Regards sir🙏
