Ratan Tata requests netizens to discontinue calls for award

Ratan Tata took to Twitter Saturday morning to highlight social media campaigns calling for an “award” for the businessman and stated that while he appreciated the sentiment, he would urge those behind such requests to discontinue.

The industrialist’s plea comes after several netizens made appeals to confer the Chairman Emeritus of Tata Sons with the country’s highest civilian award –Bharat Ratna.

“While I appreciate the sentiments expressed by a section of the social media in terms of an award, I would humbly like to request that such campaigns be discontinued. Instead, I consider myself fortunate to be an Indian and to try and contribute to India’s growth and prosperity,” Ratan Tata tweeted.

The octagenarian is often in the headlines for his humane acts and is particularly known for his care of animals which he also highlights on his social accounts from time to time. He recently won accolades when he travelled from Mumbai to Pune to visit an ailing former employee of Tata Sons.

The heartwarming gesture won the hearts of netizens after which the chorus for Bharat Ratna for the industrialist grew louder especially on Twitter.

Ratan Tata’s visit to the ailing former employee was recounted by one Yogesh Desai on Linkedin who wrote “Sir Ratan Tata, (83 Years old ) living legend, greatest businessman alive in India visited the Friends Society in Pune to meet his ex employee all the way from Mumbai who is ailing for last 2 years(sic)”.
