Amid the nationwide lockdown due to coronavirus, a clipping of a newspaper article is doing the rounds on social media, which is attributed to industrialist Ratan Tata.
The headline of the said article reads- “Very motivational at this hour’
It further reads, “Experts are predicting huge downfall of Economy due to the Corona. I do not know much about these experts. But I know for sure that they do not know anything about the value of human motivation and determined efforts.”
After all the depressing news, came across something so true and motivating. My level of respect for Mr Ratan Tata is inexplicable… 🙏🏼 pic.twitter.com/5kMfYg5VfL
