Industrialist Ratan Tata posted a picture of himself in his younger days on Thursday and took Instagram by storm. Giving a glimpse of life back in the USA, where he completed his studies, the businessman shared a photo of him donning a simple white T-shirt.
In a matter of few hours, his picture garnered over 2.6 lakh likes on the app and is a viral hit with over 3,500 comments. But it was not just the picture that got everyone talking. Sharing the picture, the 82-year-old Tata said he wanted to post it day before but was then made aware of social media rules — particularly about TBT aka #throwbackthursdays.
“I was going to post this yesterday, but I was then told about “throwbacks” and how they occur on Thursdays,” the business tycoon quipped while sharing the photo from his yesteryear. “So here is a throwback from my days in LA, not long before I happily returned to India,” he wrote on Instagram.

It is overwhelming how quickly time passes. Be it the struggles of yesterday or the good days close to heart, everything seems to have happened not very long ago. I look at the years since this picture at Cornell, and I’m heartened by the richness of experiences, opportunities and lessons I have learnt. Life should be full of these, because the years can truly be elusive. #tbteveryday
The picture left many swooning over the “hot” younger version with some calling him a ‘Greek God’. Not just on the photo-sharing app but even on Twitter, the picture went viral.
“You look like some Hollywood star sir,” one user commented on his photo while another wrote, “Handsome man… I guess the real Captain India… like Captain America”. Things were not very different on Twitter as well.
And I am wondering still he remained single 😋🤔
