Billionaire Cyrus Poonawalla Gifts Maruti S-Presso Ragpicker Turned Journalist

Maya Mukti’s journey from rag-picking to representing India at the UN is one of inspiration. In India, Maya Mukti, a 13-year-old bride, worked as a rag collector. When Cyrus Poonawalla, the head of the Serum Institute of India, contacted her, she was appointed India’s representative at the UN. Poonawalla wished to support her endeavour.

She requested a car from Cyrus Poonawalla so that she could visit the villages surrounding Nashik city. Currently, Maya Mukti is assisting in alerting the authorities to the problems facing the villagers. Maya received a brand-new Maruti Suzuki S-Presso from Poonawalla on Tuesday.

The former rag collector turned video journalist is keeping an eye on these problems until they are resolved. She nearly ran out of money as a result. Maya expressed her shock at how a stranger could simply offer assistance to another stranger after reading a newspaper to Mid-Day. Maya recently received her driving instruction and licence.

To get to the villages, Maya had to take infrequent public transportation, pay for taxis, or rent a car. According to her, the car will help her save a lot of time, effort, and money. She promises to put in much more effort and use the car to assist more people.
