Unassuming achiever: Tatas’ Chandra a role model for the young...
CHANDRAYAAN AT Tatas
"He is a simple soul, who enjoys life without taking undue advantage of the alluring opportunities his high office offers him. He does not employ colourful language, nor does he sport expensive debonair attire just to draw attention. He is at ease in the most nondescript of restaurants, and is possibly slightly uncomfortable in flashy five-star hotels.
He lives up to the unique Tata brand of austerity and goodness to fellow beings. Moving into Bombay House, just a kilometre away from TCS House, on January 21, will therefore hardly change Chandra who, in my view, represents the essence of Bhagwad Gita: ‘Do your duty and do not bother about the fruits of your labour’. On occasions, when I had been even mildly admiring of him, his reaction was somewhat muted. He was merely thankful to the Almighty for protecting him and allowing him to do what he wanted to do."
