New Delhi: Monsoon is a pleasant time of the year for most of the Indians. But it is also hard for the less fortunate who don’t have a roof over their heads and are compelled to sleep on the streets. Even though humans can seek shelter in one place or another, animals often cannot. It is during such tough times that a little thought on our part can go a long way in helping them. Such an act of kindness was captured on camera when an employee of the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel in Mumbai shared an umbrella with a stray dog during the rain. The picture soon began to do the rounds on social media and ended up catching the attention of Tata Group’s Chairman Emeritus Ratan Tata. The prestigious hotel chain is owned by the Tata Group.Also Read - Viral Video: Bihar Men Fight Violently Over School Principal’s Post | WATCH Here
