Anand Mahindra has shared a glimpse into future air travel.

The Mahindra Group Chairman on Tuesday took to social media to post two images of the airline staff dressed in protective, full-body garment, rubber gloves, surgical masks, head caps, and headgear to cover face.

In another image, the passengers were seen wearing masks, rubber gloves and IndiGo head-gears covering the face.

The 65-year-old said that the pictures looked unreal. "If you had shown me these photos just six months ago, I would have presumed they were taken on the sets of a science fiction movie," he wrote in his caption.

Ma’s The Word

25 Mar, 2020
Chinese billionaire Jack Ma (C) showed his benevolent side as he pitched in to help the world fight the novel coronavirus. The founder of e-commerce major, Alibaba, Ma became the most talked about business figure after he said that he would marshall all available resources at his disposal to take on Covid-19. From donating emergency supplies (1.8M masks, 210K test kits, 36K protective suits, plus ventilators & thermometers) to Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Nepal, Pakistan & Sri Lanka in Asia to donating 20,000 test kits, 100,000 masks and 1,000 medical use protective suits in each of the 54 African countries, the 55-year-old proved that he was a good Samaritan whose charity was not mapped by geographical boundaries. And even as the business magnate didn’t have India in his list of beneficiaries, there was much talk in the country about his act of generosity. And what followed were natural questions: who among India’s rich was doing a Jack Ma?And it’s not just one individual, but a bunch of lion-hearted boardroom tycoons who have taken the pledge to help fight the virus that has thrown life off-track, in India and across the world.
