New Delhi: Every story is worth telling. But does each one move you? If not, this one will surely do. A beautiful story of a mother-son duo scooter sojourn is winning the internet and businessman Anand Mahindra too tweeted about them. 

Mysuru-based D Krishna Kumar took his 70-year-old mother Chudarathana on a pilgrimage on his 20-year-old Bajaj Chetak scooter. Kumar quit a well-paid job to travel with his mother who had never been out of their town. The scooter reportedly belonged to his father Dakshina Murthy.

It's been over a year since Kumar and Chudarathana took off for the journey - 'Matru Seva Sankalp Yatra'. They have covered approximately 48,100 km in 19 months. They covered over 20 states during their entire journey. 

The mother-son duo's incredible story was recently highlighted by Manoj Kumar, CEO of Naandi Foundation. His tweet was later shared by Anand Mahindra, who offered to gift Kumar a car. 

"A beautiful story. About the love for a mother but also about the love for a country. If you can connect him to me, I'd like to personally gift him a Mahindra KUV 100 NXT so he can drive his mother in a car on their next journey," he tweeted.

"Truly inspirational! Matru Seva Sankalp Yatra. Salute to D Krishna Kumar," and "Wow... The nicest thing you'll see on the internet today. May God bless all mothers with such a child," are some of the many comments the post has garnered, along with several retweets and likes.
