Shared on Mr Mahindra’s official Twitter handle, the video shows a boy skillfully performing acrobatics on a road in Tirunelveli, Tamil Nadu. The little kid does multiple stunts, including back and forth flips and even does a 360 flip as spectators watch in awe.
“And after India’s gold rush at the 2022 Commonwealth Games, the next generation of talent is emerging. Not supported. We need to get this talent on track,” Mahindra wrote in the Tweet.

Another wrote how several villages in India are centers of talent, but many go unnoticed and unrecognized.
There are plenty of such talents in Indian villages that need to be recognized and nurtured well. The same goes for swimming, village children are very fast in ponds and rivers. As a passionate Indian sports fan, we need collective effort. @anandmahindra@IIS_Vijayanagar@OGQ_India@Media_SAI
