A message with a few lines purportedly written by Ratan Tata is being shared on social media and the crux of the message is that experts predictions will go wrong regarding the downfall of the Indian Economy, due to COVID-19, as history shows that human motivation and determined efforts have made many such experts’ predictions go wrong. In the message, he is confident that India will defeat COVID-19 and bounce back in a great manner. ‘FACTLY’ hasn’t found any information which suggested that the lines in the message were written by Ratan Tata. And, when ‘News Sense’ contacted Mr. Debasis Ray (Tata Trust – Corporate Communication), they were told that Ratan Tata hadn’t penned any such post or article.
Update (April 11, 2020):
Ratan Tata through his official twitter account has confirmed that the viral message on WhatsApp and social media platforms is neither been said, nor written by him.
