The video has gone viral, and people loved the heartwarming gesture of Murthy towards her dog. One user wrote, ”How pure is this! Murthy family is a blessing We are facing scarcity of finding new age families like this, finding some down to earth leaders like Mr. Murthy & Mr. Tata in this indian unicorn setup is incredibly hard May we always keep ourselves as vulnerable as these guys.”

Another wrote, ”Pets are children of house , they understand sentiments very well – they feel very happy when their family live peacefully as they consider themselves as members of family.”

Yet another added, “It’s called ‘औक्षण’ (Aukshan) in Marathi. It’s very different from an ‘aarti’ though the action is similar. A ghee lamp, betel (supari), ring, haldi-kumkum and rice akshata. This is  usually done on birthdays to bless the person/entity, ward off evil and bestow longevity of life.”
