Businessman Anand Mahindra took to Twitter this morning to share a video that many have hailed as a testament to the power of determination and hard work. Mr Mahindra shared a video of an amputee climbing a flag pole with skill and dexterity - a feat that has left thousands of viewers impressed.
In the footage, the man is seen wearing a shirt printed with the flag of India. Despite not having legs, he climbs the flag pole easily and stretches at the top - as if to recreate the unfurling of a flag.
Mr Mahindra explained that he would have shared the video yesterday on the occasion of Republic Day, but he only received it today morning. He added that it is "never too late" to watch something inspiring.
"However it's never too late to see something that inspires us; something that makes us stop feeling sorry for ourselves; something that reminds us that having a larger cause enables us to do great things..." wrote the Chairman of Mahindra Group.
