Anand Mahindra to gift vehicle to winner of Asian Gmes bronze medallist


Ram Baboo is the son of a daily wage labourer from Uttar Pradesh. He won a bronze medal for India in the 35 km race-walking event in the recently concluded Asian Games 2023.

Anand Mahindra was inspired by his story and offered the family a vehicle of their choice. He wished to support the family by giving them a tractor or pickup truck of the Mahindra company.
 Ram Baboo had a passion for sports and worked many odd jobs to fulfill his dream as his family could not support him financially. He worked as a waiter, construction labourer etc. In 2019, he managed to get a coach and train under him. He took part in the 50 km event of the National Race Walk Championships in February 2020 and finished fourth. He eventually won gold in the National Open Championships in September 2021 and was called to the national camp in Bengaluru. After he won gold in the 35 km event at the National Games last year, he got a job in the Army and is now a havildar.
