A user wondered why the office dog was named 'Goa'. The name is a departure from usually preferred ones like 'Tommy' etc. The user asked Mr Tata about this.

And Ratan Tata actually told him the interesting reason why the dog was named so.

Tata said that the dog was a stray puppy. It jumped into Tata's colleague's car in Goa and came all the way to Bombay House, the global headquarters of Tata Group in Mumbai.

Goa is being well looked after at the Bombay House as there are provisions there to ensure that street dogs are well cared for.
