Calling it a 'work of art', Anand Mahindra heaped praise on this man. In a tweet, the industrialist wrote, In a world of commoditised, energy-hungry devices, the passion for craftsmanship, the hours of dedicated efforts in hand-making this device makes it a work of art, not just a treadmill".

Expressing his desire to own the treadmill, Mahindra added, “I want one…".


KTR also praised the treadmill maker and wrote, “Wow!" along with two clapping hands emoticons. He also tagged the official Twitter handle of T- Works, an initiative of the Telangana government, and added, “Please connect and help him scale up."


In the video, the man can be seen painstakingly assembling the wooden blocks to make the treadmill. The treadmill is a workout device that is used for walking, running, or climbing while staying in the same place. The device provides a moving platform with a wide conveyor belt driven by an electric motor or a flywheel.
