This Kerala girl who gallops to class 10 exams on horseback wins Anand Mahindra’s heart

A video of a young girl from Thrissur, Kerala, has been going viral on social media. In the video, a young girl in school uniform can be seen galloping away on a horse to her Board examination.

Shared on micro-blogging site Twitter by Manoj Kumar, whose bio states he is the CEO of Naandi Foundation and co-founder of “Arakau Coffee”, has received over 8,000 likes.

Manoj Tweets, “This video clip from my #whatsappwonderbox shows how a girl student is going to write her Class X final exam in Thrissur district, Kerala. This story made my Sunday morning brew of @arakucoffeein taste better! After all, ARAKU coffee is about #cupofchange #GirlPower @NanhiKali”.

That’s not all, the girl so impressed Mahindra Group Chairman Anand Mahindra that he shared the video on Twitter, writing, “Girls’ education is galloping ahead…A clip that deserves to go viral globally. This, too, is #IncredibleIndia.”

In yet another tweet, he was curious to know who the girl was, “Does anyone in Thrissur know this girl? I want a picture of her and her horse as my screen saver. She’s my hero..The sight of her charging to school filled me with optimism for the future…”, he wrote.

Replying to him, a Twitter user and radio jockey Lishna informed that the girl’s name is Krishna and the horse owned by her is Ranakrish.

She tweeted: “She is Krishna from Trissur and along with her is ‘Ranakrish’ ! Her horse. She is joining along with me on my breakfast show tomorrow ”

According to News 18, this is not the first time Mahindra has been impressed by young and dedicated students in India. In 2018, when images of Hanan Hamidi, a Kerala girl who sold fish in the market to make ends meet and support her education, went viral, Mahindra helped her out by gifting her a Marazzo MPV vehicle. Hamidi now uses it as a food truck and continues to self-sustain her education.
