The Tata Group reopened Bombay House, its global headquarters in Mumbai, on July 29 after a nine-month-long restoration procedure. As per the press release, the heritage building which is 94-year-old has been renovated to reflect the aspirations of today's employees - modern, agile and collaboration-driven. However, what can easily be one of the most special features of the new office space is a kennel for the stray dogs living around the area.
The official press release stated, "In a first for Bombay House, a kennel has been created for the canine friends who have been an integral part of the building for decades."
A picture was posted on Facebook by Save Our Strays which is a Mumbai-based NGO and it shows the kennel. The picture's caption read, "This is the area where the street dogs living around the area can have a meal, drink water, take shelter from the sun or rain or just chill out."
The walls of the room are painted bright yellow on one side and with black and white doodles of dogs on the other. At least six dogs can be seen sitting comfortably in the room. If you're a pet lover, the picture of this special room will definitely make you go aww.
The picture has raked over 1,200 reactions and more than 600 shares. People on Facebook seem extremely impressed with this room in the iconic building.
A Facebook user posted, "Look at the cutie perched on the window sill... Would love to see a pic of that cartoon wall. Thank you for this lovely share, SOS."
Another said, "Hope other corporate houses also take up such initiative."
Bombay House was inaugurated by Ratan Tata, the Chairman Emeritus of Tata Sons on the 114th birth anniversary of JRD Tata, the Former Chairman of Tata Group. N Chandrasekaran, Chairman, Tata Sons and other employees of the company were also present at the ceremony.
