This comes after a woman named Dr Madhu Teckchandani tagged Mahindra is a tweet that consisted of video. The video entails the story of a Chandigarh-based woman, Harbhajan Kaur, who runs a home-made ‘besan ki barfi’ business.
In the video, one can learn that Harbajan Kaur’s had always wanted to earn for herself and told the same to her daughter. The duo together set up a start-up, which, today is four years old and doing great.
Once Mahindra noticed the same, he couldn’t stop but only praise the lady for her passion and dedication.
