Business tycoon Anand Mahindra, who frequently treats his social media audience with witty and introspective tweets, recently shared an old video of children playing cricket.
“An old video. But it reminded me today of how the pandemic has forced us to put a ‘screen’ in front of every activity. I want to crawl through that screen and experience the ‘real’ thing again,” tweeted Mahindra while sharing the video.
The video, which has gone viral on social media again, features the children watching a cricket match on a television screen. However, moments later, when one of the players on the television screen hits the ball, it comes right out of the screen. The ball is caught by one of the kids who is watching the match. Watch the video to know what happens next:
