Every time you read Anand Mahindra’s name in a headline, it’s mostly for something good. He is one of the few people who make you believe that wealth doesn’t change a person, rather sometimes it makes one humble enough to do good for the world. Recently, a video went viral on social media which showed a man named Abid Khan, who was once a glorified boxer and now drives an auto to survive and make ends meet. He represented Punjab University back in the 80s, coached the boxing team for the army for 5 years and even studied at the Institute of Sports in Patiala back in the day.

Abid Khan spoke about how he discouraged his own kids to not join sports but he dreams of returning to coaching one day. The video sparked a whole debate on the treatment of sports in India and the insane gap between earnings of a selected few sports personalities and others. Nevertheless, this caught the eye of Mr. Anand Mahindra, who has very generously offered help and extended his kind nature in investing for Abid Khan. 

People have applauded and praised him for coming through, yet again.

Boxing is a dying art in India, but when we have genius players like Abid who still keep the hope of playing alive in his heart and good Samaritans like Mr. Anand Mahindra, there is still hope for humanity to prevail. Here’s hoping that he gets to become a coach soon and ends up producing some great players for our country in the future.
