Renowned industrialist Anand Mahindra has once again showcased his appreciation for entrepreneurial spirit, this time directing his praise towards 22-year-old Tapsi Upadhyay, a Delhi-based entrepreneur. Known as the 'BTech Paani Puri wali,' Tapsi's unique business caught Mahindra's attention when she shared a video towing her paani puri cart with the iconic Mahindra Thar.

Starting her entrepreneurial journey with a humble cart in Tilak Nagar, Delhi, Tapsi now operates over 40 panipuri stalls across the country. 

A viral video last year featured her riding a Royal Enfield, towing her paani puri stall. Anand Mahindra's recent social media post showcases her growth, evolving from a scooty to a bike, and finally to the Mahindra Thar, symbolising the remarkable success of her venture.

Impressed by Tapsi's determination, Mahindra took to social media platform X to share the video, expressing admiration for individuals utilising off-road vehicles to pursue their dreams. In his post, Mahindra emphasised the purpose of off-road vehicles—helping people explore the impossible and live their dreams. He wrote, “Now you know why I love this video.”

Tapsi, in the shared video, underlined the significance of hard work and consistency for her success. She stated, “People might think that I got success overnight, but behind this fame, there is a lot of hard work and consistency.”

Anand Mahindra's post quickly went viral, garnering over 5 lakh views and sparking a positive response on social media.

Users resonated with the message that hard work and consistent effort can lead to significant milestones. The comment section overflowed with words of encouragement, appreciation, and admiration for Tapsi's entrepreneurial spirit, echoing the sentiment that dedication can turn dreams into reality.
