Business tycoon Anand Mahindra has earned himself a fan base in the last year and a half. His fans and followers always look forward to his hilarious, witty, and introspective tweets. He also treats his social media followers with unique and never-seen-before videos. Once again, the businessman shared an old video of children playing cricket and it will indeed make you miss your pre-COVID days. The clip features children watching a cricket match on a television screen. Moments later, when one of the kids playing the cricket match on-screen hits the ball, it comes right out of the television screen. A child watching the match catches the ball and returns it. In just a few days, the clip has gone viral on the internet.
Sharing the video, Mahindra wrote that this old clip reminded him of how the pandemic has forced people to put a screen in front of every activity. Expressing what every individual felt, the business tycoon said that he wants to crawl through that screen and experience the ‘real’ thing again.

A coupe of days back, Mahindra had shared a video of an application that takes an individual back in time.
This showed up randomly in my #SignalWonderbox. Some new phone software that plunges you back in time. Perhaps the person who sent it felt I had aged too much…Not sure whether this is nostalgia-inducing, just amusing, or scary as hell…. pic.twitter.com/Dsdk5Nyukq— anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) September 9, 2021
