Hyderabad: Anand Mahindra’s Twitter posts have always raised an eyebrow. But this time, the Mahindra Chairman’s post has left the Twitterati surprised beyond expectation.
Reposting on his Twitter handle, Anand Mahindra shared a video of a ‘driverless’ bike. In the video, a man is seen sitting at ease on the back seat of the driverless bike moving at a good speed, on what appears to be a highway.
Another person who was recording the stunt while riding another vehicle asks him, “How is this magic done? What is this magic? Who is driving the vehicle, God?” The man smiles in agreement.
Sharing the video, Anand Mahindra remembered Kishore Kumar’s legendary song ‘Musafir Hoon Yaaron’ from the 1972 film ‘Parichay’. “Love this…Musafir hoon yaaron… na chalak hai, na thikaana.. (I’m a traveller with no driver, no destination),” Anand Mahindra jokingly tweeted.
Soon, netizens poured in with a question mark on their comments while wondering how this could be possible. A few also compared the stunt to Tesla’s autopilot cars and about Elon Musk wishing to live on Mars before getting a stiff competition in India.
Here are some reactions to the video:
Several netizens also pointed to the absence of safety gear like helmets in the video. Calling it a risky stunt, several netizens also asked Anand Mahindra not to promote stunts like these.
Well, what is your reaction watching this driverless bike?
