After a few hours, Hegde replied that the woman’s name was Mohini Krishna Gowda, and he had the contact number of her son. Now it will be interesting to see how Mahindra will express his gratitude to the old woman.

In 2019, Mahindra noticed an elderly woman named Kamalathal, from Coimbatore, also known as Idli Amma. She owned a tiny idli shop and sold idlis for Rs 1 each. She kept the prices low, in order to cater to daily-wage labourers who were unable to afford high prices. Her story touched Mahindra, he helped the woman get an LPG connection for her shop. Two years later, in May 2022, Mahindra’s company built a house for the 85-year-old woman, and gave her the keys to her new home on Mother’s Day.
