What a luck! Anand Mahindra shares Okhla’s garbage collectors Hafiz, Habibur videos, pledges support
If you have talent then never give up your dream as you don’t know when fortune will smile on you. The case in point is a story of two Okhla youths, Hafiz and Habibur.
They were not born with a silver spoon in their mouth as they are ragpickers. But their impoverished background didn’t deter them from continuing to dream. And it has yielded positive results after their singing videos landed with Mahindra Group Chairman Anand Mahindra who has promised to support Hafiz and Habibur get training in music.
The video that he has shared on his twitter timeline has literally gone viral with one video till the filing of this report got 108.7K and 51K with many comments.
“Incredible India. My friend Rohit Khattar shared these posts which he received on social media. Two brothers, Hafiz and Habibur, are hard-working garbage collectors in New Friends’ Colony in Delhi.
“Clearly, there are no limits to where talent can spring from. Their talent is raw, but obvious. Rohit & I would like to support their further training in music. Could anyone in Delhi share any information regarding a possible music teacher/voice coach who could tutor them in the evenings, since they work all day,” Mahindra wrote while sharing the two small videos.
Now, their melodious renditions of Hindi songs have received praise by netizens and chances are that their lives may change for good.
