‘Where there’s a will, there’s a way’: Anand Mahindra on Indore’s transformation

Business tycoon Anand Mahindra is inspired by the transformation of the city of Indore as the cleanest city of India. “Decades ago, I met my wife while I was making a student film in Indore. The city was then unattractive and dirty. The city’s transformation is miraculous and proves that ‘where there’s a will, there’s a way!’ More power to you, Indore; You’re my #MondayMotivaton,” Anand Mahindra tweeted.

Sharing a Twitter user’s post showing Sabzi Mandi at Indore, Anand Mahindra tweeted, “More evidence of how Indore has transformed even the most common—and usually the most chaotic— aspect of an Indian town…”

Anand Mahindra, who has 7.4 million followers on Twitter, is very active on the social media site. He keeps tweeting about the news making the headlines.

After earning the distinction of being India’s cleanest city in several Swachh Bharat Abhiyan surveys, Indore, now wants to be India’s most “silent city” as well. “We want to free Indore from noise pollution and earn for it the status of silent city of India by March, 2021. This is an unofficial title but people are being motivated to achieve this goal,” District Collector Lokesh Kumar Jatav told PTI on Sunday.

With a population of around 30 lakh, Indore is MP’s commercial capital and its roads witness traffic jams that give rise to incessant honking, officials pointed out.

The initiative had got a massive thumbs up from netizens.
