Social media users are full of praise for Ratan Tata after it emerged that the Mumbai-based industrialist quietly travelled to Pune to visit an ailing former employee. The 83-year-old was photographed at Friends Society in Pune by Yogesh Desai, who shared the picture on LinkedIn one day ago. Since then, his post has been flooded with comments from people praising Mr Tata’s compassionate gesture.
According to Mr Desai, Ratan Tata travelled from Mumbai to Pune to visit a former employee who has been unwell for two years. “No media, no bouncers only commitment towards loyal employees,” he wrote in praise of the man he described as a “living legend” and the “greatest businessman alive in India.” Mr Desai shared a photograph where the Chairman Emeritus of Tata Sons can be seen with two other people. In the comments section, he clarified that he is not the former employee Mr Tata came to visit. “He came to meet his employee at my Friends housing complex,” wrote Mr Desai. “I have not met him. I have nothing to do other than put it on social media.”
