Rarely one sees a moment so iconic in India’s corporate circle that it gets tough to be described with all the vocabulary in the world. However, it was nothing short of overwhelming for the packed audience in Mumbai’s National Centre for the Performing Arts (NPCA) when two of India’s entrepreneurial legends and perhaps two biggest faces of India Inc. engaged in an act that reflected India’s cultural ethos. Infosys co-founder Narayana Murthy on Tuesday presented the Lifetime Achievement Award to Tata Sons Chairman Emeritus Ratan Tata. However, what followed after that was mesmerising.

Murthy, as a mark of respect and humility, bent down to touch Ratan Tata’s feet to seek his blessings. “It was an honour to be awarded by TIEcon at the hands of a great friend Mr. Narayana Murthy,” Ratan Tata said on Instagram, adding, “I am truly humbled,” in the caption. Since then, Twitterati has been in awe of the great moment.
