Anand Mahindra never backs down from encouraging new talent and innovation and now he's found something very intriguing - an old Mahindra Marshal serving as the roof at a house in Ladakh. Mahindra's chief recently got a set of images by his friend in which an old Mahindra can be seen being used as a home roof. Applauding the effort, Anand Mahindra took it to Twitter and tweeted "Well this will compete with our auto-shredding venture but it’s far more creative!” The said pictures are from the Sonam Wangchuk’s Himalayan Institute of Alternatives. In Delhi NCR, where cars having over 15-years of age won't be allowed to ply on the roads, the aforementioned institute has indeed set an example of how such cars can be used innovatively.
The idea has generated a lot of interest on Twitter and for obvious reasons, many people are appreciating the effort. The Sonam Wangchuk’s Himalayan Institute of Alternatives is famous due to the fact that nothing gets discarded here and hence, it believes in pure recycling. Multiple studies have proved that vehicles more than 15 years of age lead to serious air pollution. Hence, there has been a huge debate on how such vehicles need to be recycled or the waste generated from them need to be disposed off in a way that should ensure that there is minimal harm to the environment.
Here's how Anand Mahindra responded on Twitter on this idea:
