Many would agree when we say that our parents sacrificed their wishes to fulfill ours. But, when it comes to our parents’ wishes, very few kids take the initiative to fulfill them.
And one such kid is Dakshina Murthy Krishna Kumar.
Recently the Internet celebrated Dakshina’s effort as he helped his mother fulfill her dream of visiting almost all the temples in India. And for this dream, he also quit his job.
According to a report by TOI, Dakshina and his mother made this adventurous journey on his father’s 19-year-old Bajaj Chetak scooter.
This story touched many hearts across the internet. Many came forward to applaud the determination of this man to support his mother in fulfilling his dreams. And, one such person was Anand Mahindra.
Touched by his love for his mother, business tycoon Anand Mahindra promised to gift him a Mahindra SUV.
A beautiful story. About the love for a mother but also about the love for a country… Thank you for sharing this Manoj. 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 https://t.co/Pyud2iMUGY

Dakshina, along with his 71-year-old mother, started his journey in January 2018 and together, they have visited most of the temples across Karnataka, as well as in Nepal and Bhutan.
In a conversation with TOI, Kumar talked about why he decided to travel with his mother. He said:
“My mother had been stuck in the kitchen for the best part of her life. She had never visited any places outside Mysuru. So, I decided to take her on this pilgrimage.”
In these times, when there is so much negativity around us, stories like these not only fill our day with positivity but also make us hopeful for life.
At IFORHER, we are proud of this son for making his mom’s life special with such a heartwarming gesture.
