Mahindra Group Chairman admires this couple, suggests sponsoring their next travel

"They may not figure in the Forbes Rich list but in my view, they are amongst the richest people in our country. Their wealth is their attitude to life," the Mahindra group chairman wrote in admiration of an elderly couple from Kochi.

He also shared a small clip of the couple, Vijayan and Mohana, from a video shot by travel blogger Drew Binsky.

Always dreamt of seeing the world, both of them, who are in their late 60s, have managed to travel over 20 countries so far in a span of 45 years of their marriage. They run a small tea shop in Kochi, from where they make earnings. To travel, they also have to take loans.

Mahindra has now suggested crowdsourcing money for their next vacation, and gifting it to them as their anniversary gift. Many people have been motivated and want to pitch in.
