Anand Mahindra shared an emotional post after the legendary Indian athlete died due to Covid-19 related issues in a Chandigarh hospital.
Anand Mahindra paid tribute to the athlete and wrote, “How can my generation explain what Milkha Singh meant to us? He wasn’t just an athlete. To a society still suffering the insecurities of post-colonialism, he was a sign that we could be the best in the world. Thank you, Milkha Singhji, for giving us that confidence. Om Shanti.”
How can my generation explain what Milkha Singh meant to us?
He wasn’t just an athlete. To a society still suffering the insecurities of post-colonialism he was a sign that we could be the best in the world. Thank you, Milkha Singhji, for giving us that confidence. Om Shanti 🙏🏽

Netizens poured in with messages for Milkha Singh.
Mikha Singh is perhaps the greatest sportsperson in India's history, the proof lies in the fact that there hasn't been a single athlete who could match his stats in more than 60 years since he retired! RIP Sir! 😔#MilkhaSingh #

Some athletes don't require any introduction. Their name is imbibed in everyone's heart and soul. There may be a significant generation gap but not everyone is capable enough to do something for their homeland. It needs immense courage and an always burning fire#RIPMilkhaSingh
