Haryana's shoe doctor gets new kiosk, courtesy Anand Mahindra
New Delhi, Aug 2: Do you remember Mahindra Group Chairman Anand Mahindra had once tweeted out a picture of a cobbler back in April who was sitting in front of a billboard that claimed to be a hospital for 'wounded shoes'.
This man should be teaching marketing at the Indian Institute of Management... pic.twitter.com/N70F0ZAnLP— anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) April 17, 2018
Taking to Twitter, he wrote, "This man should be teaching marketing at the Indian Institute of Management..."
Mahindra stated that he had received the photo on Whatsapp, and didn't know who he was.
The Internet was quick in helping him find the man - and they did trace him.
The cobbler was identified as Narsi Ram from Haryana.
Anand Mahindra's team tracked the cobbler and offered to provide help. However, he refused monetary help and instead asked for a better kiosk.
Now, the cobbler Narsi Ram has a new kiosk that offers many facilities and is also suitable for all weather.
Remember the cobbler Narsi Ram with the innovative banner ‘Zakhmi Jooton Ka Hospital?’ Our team had contacted him & conveyed my interest to invest in him.He said he wanted a good kiosk. This is what our Design studio in Mumbai came up with:Great work guys! Will be delivered soon pic.twitter.com/wDgKDPoeHr— anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) August 1, 2018
The kiosk is now ready and Anand Mahindra tweeted a video of the kiosk on Wednesday.
