Anand Mahindra Shares 'Innovative' Picture of Kids Playing Carrom on a DIY Board

Trending Desk

Business tycoon Anand Mahindra has shared a picture of some kids playing carrom - but wait, what's so special about that?

The reason behind Mahindra sharing the picture is also unique.

The kids in the picture aren’t playing the game on any regular carrom board. It appears that they have dug a shallow ditch in the soil and drawn a square on it to fashion resembles a carrom board, complete with the lines and pockets! They are seen using bottle caps as strikers and carrom coins in the game.

Mahindra has rightly written that “India has zero poverty of imagination...” while sharing the picture on twitter.
