There are many messages in my inbox that I cannot respond to, but you have some wonderful questions and I would like to answer a few. I understand Instagram has a question-answer feature, so I will try my best to answer some on Sunday evening. I look forward to hearing from you in the QnA story that’s added.
Last evening, he replied to no doubt, just a handful of the questions he received (this reporter’s question sadly went unanswered on Instagram). Some of the questions that were asked were whether he does yoga, his answer was “Yes every evening.”
Many users asked him about his love for dogs, something he says that he has all his life, with one user asking what kind of bond he and his furry friends share. Tata replied that it is a bond that expects nothing from the other except love and affection. It is well-known that Tata is an animal lover and he also used his social media to help find a dog a forever home earlier this year, and recently put up another post about a dog named Sur that was also looking for a home.
As far as work goes, Tata says that if he wasn’t heading the Tata group he would probably be “trying to be a successful architect.” Tata, whose social media page is dotted with short notes and illustrations shared his advice for his followers. When one user asked him if it was okay to settle for less when you dreamt of more but can’t achieve it, Tata emphatically replies that “Yes, as long as you can be truly content with less.” And what if others aren’t playing fair? Tata replies matter of factly with his advice: You can still compete effectively if you are fair to all your stakeholders.
Tata also addressed the global situation and said he wished that leadership across various countries were more united than they are. And his current dream project is to target malnutrition in infants across India.
