Updated: 9th May, 2022: Anand Mahindra, Chairman of the Mahindra Group, gifted a house to Tamil Nadu’s ‘Idli Amma’ on Mother’s Day. 83-year-old M Kamalathal has been making idlis for over four decades, and she now has her own home to live in.
This is not the first time that Mahindra has shown his support for M Kamalathal; he had also arranged for her to get an electric wheelchair last year.
Mahindra’s gesture has won him praise from all corners, with people lauding him for his kindheartedness.
M Kamalathal, meanwhile, is overjoyed at her new home and says that she is thankful to Mahindra for his generosity.
Businessman and Indian entrepreneur Anand Mahindra has gifted a house to M Kamalathal from Tamil Nadu on the occasion of Mother’s Day. Kamalathal, affectionately known as ‘Idli Amma’, has been making and selling Idli for Rs 1 for the last 30 years.
“She is the embodiment of the mother’s virtues … a privilege to be able to support her and her work,” Mahindra tweeted, sharing her video.
On Mother’s Day, Anand Mahindra uttered his words as he shared a video showing Idli Amma entering her new home.
For those who are unaware, M Kamalathal also known as Idli Amma, lives in Vadivelampalayam, a village near Peru in Tamil Nadu. She has been selling idli with sambar and chutney for only Rs 1 for almost 37 years.
Taking her to her Twitter handle, Anand Mahindra shared the video and captioned it, “Thank you so much to our team for completing the construction of the house on time to give a gift to Idli Amma on #Motherday, she is the embodiment of mother’s nurturing, virtues, caring and selfless. The privilege of being able to support her and her work. Happy Mother’s Day to you all! ”
Her story went viral again in 2019 and Anand Mahindra extended his support and wrote that she would be happy to ‘invest’ in her business.
After Mahindra’s wonderful video on Mother’s Day, netizens couldn’t stop praising her for her kind gesture.
Kamalathal’s schedule is difficult as she starts making idli from sunrise and mainly caters to the daily laborers.
