Tata Group Allocating A Part Of Its Newly-restored Bombay House To Stray Dogs Is Truly Praiseworthy!

Published on 13 August, 2018 at 10:00 am By

The Tata Group has reopened Bombay House, its global headquarters in Mumbai, after a 9-month-long restoration process, on July 29, which also marked the 114th birth anniversary of its former chairman, J.R.D. Tata. Built in 1924, the 94-year-old heritage building was revamped for the first time in its history. The newly-restored iconic building was inaugurated by Ratan Tata, Chairman Emeritus, Tata Sons, in the presence of N. Chandrasekaran, Chairman, Tata Sons, and other Tata employees.

The fresh look of the iconic Bombay House reflects the changing workplace at the Tata Group with well-designed common and collaborative spaces to meet the requirements of business today.

While the renovated heritage building boasts of a collaborative and informal workplace equipped with the best of technologies and security systems, the feature that has grabbed most eyeballs is something very unusual and deserves appreciation.

In a first, the newly-restored Tata Group headquarters has allocated a part of its iconic Bombay House to stray dogs living in and around the area.

Decorated with dog doodles and painted bright yellow, the kennel is designed to tend to each need of the dogs. It is also well-stocked with food, water, toys, chewies, feeding bowls, dog biscuits and what not. A haven, any street dogs living around the area can have a meal, drink water, take shelter from the sun or rain or just chill out.

Stray dogs have always been welcomed at Bombay House even when they did not have a dedicated space for them.

It is said that the building has been home to several stray dogs for decades. While earlier, they would often be seen sleeping in the reception area or the security guards’ cabin, now in new Bombay House, they have a room of their own, all thanks to Ratan Tata for his immense love for dogs.

Needless to mention, Bombay House was built on the two plots of land bought by Sir Dorabji Tata, the group’s second Chairman, and Jamsetji Tata’s elder son, from the Bombay Municipality in 1920. The building was designed by the well-known architect, George Wittet, who was also the architect of the Gateway of India, the Prince of Wales Museum (now called Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya) and other iconic buildings of Mumbai.
