Anand Mahindra gifts SUV to man who built jeep with scrap metal
Anand Mahindra, the business billionaire, has repeatedly encouraged inventors and creative minds whose jugaad technology has wowed the globe. Now, following his promise, he conveyed the news that his firm had given a new vehicle to the Maharashtra blacksmith Dattatraya Lohar, who had created a car out of refurbished old components and scrap metal. The vehicle had a two-wheeler motor, auto-rickshaw tyres, and looked like a tough jeep, yet it was effective enough to impress everyone online.
"I'll personally provide him a Bolero in return," Anand Mahindra tweeted, adding that local police will eventually prohibit him from driving the car for violating restrictions.
The man accepted the offer, and in exchange, he received a new SUV.
