Narayana Murthy On Ratan Tata


wealthymatters,comWhat are your fondest memories from your interaction with Tata?

” When we inaugurated our management council room, which I believe is the most advanced council room with perhaps the finest technology in Asia, I had a discussion with my colleagues and we decided to name it after Jamsetji Tata. Jamsetji Tata, as you know, was an extraordinary businessman. He donated one-third of his wealth to start the Indian Institute of Science.

So, when we decided to name the management council room, I decided to invite Ratan to inaugurate that. He was a little bit surprised that we were naming our number one conference room after Jamsetji Tata. I told him, ‘Jamsetji is a beacon and an example on how businesses should be conducted.’ He came and inaugurated it, he had lunch with us, interacted with youngsters. And every one of my colleagues was so impressed with his grace, courtesy and humility.”

People have asked me if the people in the photographs are related to me. Some have even asked me, “Is this black-and-white photo that of a Sufi saint or a religious guru?” I smile and reply “No, nor are they related to me. These people made an impact on my life. I am grateful to them.” “Who are they?” “The man in the blue suit is Bharat Ratna JRD Tata and the black-and-white photo is of Jamsetji Tata.” “But why do you have them in your office?” “You can call it gratitude.” Read more of this post
