Atithi Devo Bhava, the Sanskrit phrase meaning “the Guest is God” characterizes the meaning of guest-host relationship going back for centuries in Indian culture. This saying also applies to the situation that Karambir Kang faced as the General Manager of The Taj Mahal Palace Mumbai when the hotel suffered a terror attack on November 26, 2008. He and his team received global accolades for saving many guests and reopening the hotel in 21 days. Mr. Kang shares his reflections on the importance of commitment to duty and purpose.
