even though I have not met him personally, by what I have heard I can definitely say that he is an epitome of how someone can be rich, powerful as well as humble at the same time.
there are numerous life incidents which prove why Ratan Tata is looked at with so much reverence and why he is different from other billionaires out there.
he used to work as a blue collar employees for his own company at Tata Steel and this to after declining to work with IBM in New York. He even handed blast furnaces and shoveled limestone and then moved on to managerial positions in the company because of his sharp acumen and insightful ideas.
Whenever he is riding alone, he sits with his driver and not in his backseat. But many a time, when the driver is not available, he just drives himself.
He even traveled economy. Wonder if other business big wigs out there can do this or if our MLAs and MPs with their bloated egos can travel economic class?
He is started an annual contest to reward the best failed idea in the company. The objective behind this was to encourage employees to think of Innovative ideas so that that company keeps evolving all the time.

People asked what you are so crazy about his ideas and why he’s your inspiration. After doing all this can someone is still remain and touched by his dazzling light.

Hey faith in yourself: if I don’t believe in taking right decisions, I take decisions and then make them right
Adopt a wider vision: if you want to walk fast work alone, but if you want to walk far,walk together.
never look back and repent: there are many things that if I have to relive, maybe I will do it another way but I would not like to look back and think what I have not been able to.
