Humility is an essential quality, which every human should possess. A lot can be said about us by observing the way we treat others-be it strangers, friends, family or competitors!
The Indus Entrepreneurs (TiECon) recently held their annual event where business tycoon Ratan Tata (Chairman of Tata Trusts and Chairman Emeritus of Tata Sons) was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award.
The prestigious award was presented by none other than Narayana Murthy, the co-founder of Infosys. According to reports, in a heartwarming gesture, Murthy proceeded to bend down and touch Ratan Tata’s feet to seek his blessings.
The President of TiE Mumbai, Atul Nishar said “Sri Ratan Tata’s lasting legacy is the highest standards of ethics and integrity that will guide entrepreneurs in their journey for decades to come. The awardees of the Hall of fame have shown exemplary courage, passion, and foresight in being disrupters who have created wealth and opportunities for thousands.”
