An endearing portrait of an Indian legend. I Came Upon a Lighthouse: A Short Memoir of Life with Ratan Tata is a memoir penned by Shantanu Naidu and illustrated by Sanjana Desai.

It was their shared empathy for homeless dogs that sparked an unlikely friendship. In 2014, Shantanu Naidu, an automobile design engineer in his early twenties, developed an innovation to save the local strays from being run over by speeding cars. Ratan Tata, himself known for his compassion for stray dogs, took note. Impressed, he not only decided to invest in the venture, but over the years became a mentor, boss and an unexpectedly dear friend to Shantanu.

I Came Upon a Lighthouse is an honest, light-hearted telling of this uncommon bond between a millennial and an octogenarian that gives glimpses of a beloved Indian icon in a warm light.

From composing music videos for social causes during his engineering days, Shantanu Naidu went on to establish himself in animal welfare with his video ‘Paws for a cause’, which was his entry into the space. During his time as automotive design engineer at Tata Elxsi, he founded a start-up, Motopaws.
