Ratan Tata’s humble response to a lady fan who called him “Chhotu”

When one reaches the zeniths of name, fame and royalty, it is hard to be grounded and humble. But, there are few gems of India, who have reached the pinnacle of success and are the personification of success, yet are humble and kind hearted.

One such gem is the maestro of the business world, Mr. Ratan Tata, the chairman emeritus of Tata Sons. He is known for his business acumen, precision decision making and thought leadership. A true business man from the mind, he possesses a heart of gold and humbleness is his virtue.

Recently, Mr. Ratan Tata crossed one million followers on Instagram, and he uploaded his candid photograph on his handle with a thoughtful message, “I’ve just seen that the number of people on this page has reached a milestone. This wonderful online family is not what I expected when I joined Instagram, and I have you to thank for it”.

He even said in the age of technology and internet, finding quality connections is truly important as being a part of good community fosters learning. 

While his post was flooded with positive messages and congratulatory posts, there was one such post that gained attention and was severely trolled One of his lady followers commented, “Congratulations Chhotu” with a heart emojis. Within a matter of a few minutes, the lady was severely trolled and had a lot of negative replies like, “shame on you” or “disrespectful comment”. 

She even replied that Chhotu is an endearing term she used to express her love for Mr. Ratan Tata, who is an idol for everyone.

But the comments did not seem to stop. However, things took a U-turn in a good way, when Mr. Ratan Tata came to save the lady by saying that there is a child (Chhotu) in everyone and requested everyone to treat the lady with respect. 

The single and precise reply of the idol proved that his extent of humbleness and how even being on zeniths of glory, he is so kind and down to earth.
