Made me cry so early in the day

“No granddaughter yet, but my grandson is so old,” tweeted Anand Mahindra.

With Christmas around the corner and the festivities looming, renowned industrialist Anand Mahindra shared a heartwarming video on Twitter today that “made him cry so early in the day”.

The Mahindra Group chairman went to Twitter to post a touching Christmas video. “Shoot; you made me cry so early in the day. Not a granddaughter yet, but my grandson is so old …” he tweeted.

The video, an advertisement, begins with a grandfather who wakes up every day and exercises weight with a picture by his side. The video leaves us guessing to the end and shows the viewers trying to figure out why the older man exercised. At the end, you can see the grandfather visiting his granddaughter with a present – a poinsettia – that he helps her put on a decorated tree.

The 2-minute video was viewed nearly 20,000 times within an hour of Mr Mahindra’s tweet.

When Twitterati responded to the video, he said they were “moved” and had “tears” when they saw the video.


“Touch and a message with a thought. Just Merry Christmas !!!!” a twitter user wrote.

“I am touched and moved to read that you don’t hesitate to post on social media that emotional clips like this one make you cry !! Kudos to you,” said another user.

Anand Mahindra is known for inspiring people and sharing with many stories of talented people on Twitter.

The 65-year-old industrialist had previously shared a video of an eight-year-old who was described as the “fastest child in the world”.

“He’s like a machine. His legs are blurry while running. He’ll undoubtedly become the fastest man in the world,” says the caption next to the clip.
