"I Came Upon a Lighthouse" is an endearing portrait of an Indian legend, Ratan Tata, as seen through the eyes of Shantanu Naidu, an automobile design engineer. The book goes beyond the usual narrative of historic events or business milestones to showcase a more personal side of Ratan Tata, as experienced by the author in their unlikely friendship.

The story begins with a shared empathy for homeless dogs, which sparked the friendship between Shantanu Naidu and Ratan Tata. In 2014, Shantanu developed an innovation to protect local strays from being run over by speeding cars, which caught the attention of Ratan Tata. Impressed by Shantanu's compassion and ingenuity, Ratan Tata not only invested in the venture but also became a mentor and boss to Shantanu, guiding him on his journey.

The book portrays Ratan Tata not just as an industry doyen but as a compassionate individual with a love for stray dogs. It offers glimpses of their adventures together and the aspects of Ratan Tata's personality that are lesser-known to the world.

"I Came Upon a Lighthouse" presents Ratan Tata in a warm and affectionate light, showcasing the deep bond that developed between a millennial and an octogenarian. It is an honest and light-hearted account of their friendship, giving readers an intimate look at the beloved Indian icon from a unique perspective.

Shantanu Naidu is a multi-faceted individual who has made significant contributions to animal welfare and entrepreneurship. He started his journey by creating music videos for social causes during his engineering days. However, he found his true calling in animal welfare when he produced the video 'Paws for a Cause,' which marked his entry into the field.

As an automotive design engineer at Tata Elxsi, Shantanu established a start-up called Motopaws, which focused on enhancing road safety by putting reflective collars on India's stray dogs, thus preventing night-time road accidents. His venture caught the attention of Mr. Ratan Tata, who became a primary investor in the initiative.

After completing his MBA at Cornell University in New York, Shantanu returned to India and joined Mr. Tata's office as Deputy General Manager. In this role, he actively assisted Mr. Tata with various activities, including philanthropic initiatives, evaluating start-up proposals, and handling social media responsibilities.

During his time at Mr. Tata's office, Shantanu noticed a lack of understanding and fear among young students regarding entrepreneurship. To address this gap, he founded 'On Your Sparks,' an online entrepreneurship course that teaches fundamental principles through engaging stories. The proceeds from this initiative are directed towards animal welfare projects.

In addition to his work in animal welfare and entrepreneurship education, Shantanu established the 'Cyber Aid Army,' an organization that provides technological assistance and counseling to victims of cybercrime free of charge.

Shantanu's passion for animals remains a significant part of his life, and he spends a considerable amount of time with dogs while also engaging with students online to foster their entrepreneurial spirit. He is known for his creative ideas, love for pina coladas, and his connection to Mumbai. Through his various ventures and initiatives, Shantanu Naidu continues to make a positive impact on both the animal welfare and entrepreneurial landscapes in India.
