Anand Mahindra has often sought help from his followers on social media to reach out to those in need. In his latest post, he tweeted a video of a worker skillfully loading and transporting bricks on his head. Admiring the man’s mastery, Mahindra asked netizens if they knew where the video was from and whether his employer could provide automation for the cumbersome task.

“No one should have to do such risky manual labour. But you have to admire this man for turning his drudgery into an art form. Does anyone know where this is from? Can his employers provide automation and also recognise his higher-order skills?” read the caption of the post, which features a man loading 32 bricks on a wooden plank placed on his head before transporting it.
