Sometimes, we need to respect people

Ratan Tata’s humane gestures (in the aftermath of 26/11)
Kasab is hanged, everyone's happy. Some people are praising Pranabda
for this, while some the UPA governance.

Now that everyone's happy lets go back to November 2008,Hotel Taj when

3. The relief and assistance was extended to all those who died at the
railway station, surroundings including the “Pav-Bhaji” vendor and the
pan shop owners.

covered by this facility.

8. Every employee was assigned to one mentor and it was that person’s
responsibility to act as a “single window” clearance for any help that
the person required.

9. Ratan Tata personally visited the families of all the 80 employees

they wanted him to do.

12. In a record time of 20 days, a new trust was created by theTatas
for the purpose of relief of employees.

13. What is unique is that even the other people, the railway
employees, the police staff, the pedestrians who had nothing to do
with Tatas were covered by compensation. Each one of them was provided
subsistence allowance of Rs. 10K per month for all these people for 6

14. A 4 year old granddaughter of a vendor got 4 bullets in herand
only one was removed in the Government hospital. She was taken to
Bombay hospital and several lacs were spent by the Tatas on her to
fully recover her.

15. New hand carts were provided to several vendors who lost their carts.

16. Tata will take responsibility of life education of 46 childrenof
the victims of the terror.

17. This was the most trying period in the life of the organization.
Senior managers including Ratan Tata were visiting funeral to funeral
over the 3 days that were most horrible.

18. The settlement for every deceased member ranged from Rs. 36 to 85
lacs [One lakh rupees tranlates to approx 2200 US$ ] in addition to
the following benefits:

a. Full last salary for life for the family and dependents;

anywhere in the world.
