A 27-Year-Old Gets The Dream Job With Ratan Tata, Here Is His Story

New Delhi: It has always been a dream of each one of us to work with industrialist and philanthropist Ratan Tata. Well, Shantanu Naidu just got lucky enough to work with the business tycoon. In a post shared on the popular Facebook page 'Humans of Bombay', the 27 years old tells his story of how he managed to get the coveted position. 

Shantanu explains that he met Ratan Tata for the first time in 2014 and describes the events that led up to the meeting that changed his life. He says that five years ago, witnessing the death of a stray dog prompted him to start making collars with reflectors on them, so drivers could see the dogs from a distance.

"Word spread like fire and our work got covered in the Tata group of companies' newsletter," says Shantanu. "Around that time, my dad asked me to write a letter to Mr. Ratan Tata, since he loves dogs too. I was hesitant at first, but then I said to myself, 'Why not?'"

Shantanu says that two months after writing the letter, he received a response from Mr. Tata himself, inviting him for a meeting. "I couldn't believe it," he says.

A few days later, Shantanu met Ratan Tata at his office in Mumbai. "He told me, 'I'm deeply touched by the work you do!' I still get goosebumps when I think of it," says Shantanu. Not only Mr. Tata funded Shantanu's venture but he also took him to his place to meet his dogs.

After that, Shantanu says he left to complete his masters but promised Mr. Tata that he would return and dedicate his life to working for Tata Trust.

"As soon as I came back to India, he gave me a call and said 'I have a lot of work to be done in my office. Would you like to be my assistant?' -- I didn't know how to react. So I took a deep breath, and a few seconds later said 'Yes!'" says Shantanu.
