Infosys co-founder Narayana Murthy had the most humble gesture for industrialist Ratan Tata at an event on Tuesday. The legendary businessmen were sharing the stage at the annual TieCon event in Mumbai when the Infosys mentor bent down to touch the feet of Ratan Tata after presenting him an award. Ratan Tata was honoured with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 11th edition of TiECon Mumbai.
Ratan Tata later posted the video in an Instagram story captioning it: "It was an honour to be awarded by TIEcon at the hands of a great friend Mr. Narayana Murthy."
