A woman experienced Ratan Tata’s love for animals first-hand during her stay at the Taj Mahal Hotel in Mumbai.

An HR professional recently stayed at the Taj Mahal Hotel in Mumbai and was surprised to find a dog sleeping peacefully at the hotel's entrance. Rubi Khan’s curiosity about the dog’s presence prompted her to inquire about it with the staff. They informed her that the dog had been a part of the hotel since birth. The staff explained that Ratan Tata had issued strict instructions to treat animals entering the hotel premises “well”.

She said, “Amidst the chaos, he owns the place, finding his sanctuary.”

Khan further added that she experienced “inclusion, psychological safety and emotional intelligence in action” at the hotel. “In the midst of leading and driving business while being customer-obsessed, the true soul of a business is reflected in how it treats others. We often speak about inclusion, biases, psychological safety, and emotional intelligence. I witnessed all these principles in action here. It’s a fine balance of head and heart, being authentic, and not worrying about what others might think as they enter this esteemed property,” she wrote in her post.

“You can be the most successful entrepreneur, but that should never stop you from respecting and embracing everyone,” Khan stressed.

The post, since being shared, has accumulated a flurry of reactions and numerous comments, including one from the hotel itself.

Taj Hotels dropped a comment on Khan’s post: “Hi Rubi, thank you for sharing this story. At Taj, we value compassion and inclusion, ensuring every guest feels at home. Your reflections truly resonate with our core values.”

This authentic embodiment of values goes beyond superficial adherence, creating a profound and impactful organizational environment.”

“Tatas for a reason. The name itself is enough,” expressed another.

A third commented, “Wah Taj boliye [Say wow Taj]! True measure of a business’s integrity is how it treats every being within its walls. Genuine success lies in balancing professionalism with kindness.
