In the latest tweet by Anand Mahindra, he comments about Thar as an amphibious creature. Currently, the southern region of India is reeling under the effect of cyclone Michaung. It has hit various parts of the southern states and caused havoc. The primary city hit by this is Chennai, Tamil Nadu. Due to the torrential rains, 2 people have been killed, while over 9,600 have been moved to temporary relief centres and camps. In addition to that, 300 flights and many long-distance trains have been cancelled. Amidst all this, a video is going viral of a Mahindra Thar. Here are the details.

Anand Mahindra Calls Thar Amphibian
The latest post from Anand Mahindra on X (formerly Twitter) reads, “An Instagram post from Chennai that was forwarded to me… A sighting of an amphibious creature…” The visuals capture someone driving the Thar through deep waters. The roads have been inundated with water due to the floods. In fact, the video offers a clear glimpse of what the condition is. There are only trucks travelling on the roads. A few people are also seen stranded in the water. But then a Thar emerges. The owner is driving it quite fearlessly across the water. On separate occasions, we have also seen crocodiles appearing in the water near residential areas.
The cyclone has brought life to a standstill. The power supply was suspended since Saturday as a precautionary measure. There are relief camps set up in 8 different areas. Furthermore, the Army and the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) are helping the state authorities in relief and rescue operations. The Chennai airport and the Southern Railway are facing cancellations of flights and trains, respectively. We can only hope that the situation gets better in times to come.

We acknowledge that Thar owners are enthusiasts seeking hardcore off-roading experiences. However, it’s crucial to establish limits. While the Thar is built for challenges, safety should remain a priority. Off-roading shouldn’t jeopardize our well-being. Reckless behaviour contributes to road fatalities annually, demanding a more serious approach. We strongly advise against attempting extreme stunts, even with a capable SUV like the Thar.
