Anand Mahindra, usually known for his entrepreneurial acumen and for heading one of the largest companies in the country Mahindra Group as Chairman is also a skilful photographer. The business mogul was a student of film making, much before his career as a businessman jumpstarted. He also studied photography in the early 1970s.
Mahindra, who is very active on social media, took to Twitter on Sunday to share some photos from his photography days. "Using the Sunday to organise pics from my days studying photography in the early seventies. These made me wonder whether a lot has changed...or not. For many, a good life is still a 'Sapna'...(dream)," he said and posted three black and white photographs.
