Sohini got nostalgic and emotional while penning down a remembrance copy towards the deceased businessman. She narrated the incident of the days when she met Cyrus for the first time at Tata, her words read, "He was running a bit late. The moment he entered, about 15 minutes after the scheduled time, he said in a very polite voice, “I apologise to have kept all of you waiting.”
The former Tata employee remarked Cyrus of being grounded, humble and a person who treated everyone with equal respect and courtesy. In her emotional note, Sohini noted these qualities to be one of CPM’s greatest legacies. The concluding lines of her post read, "He always left you feeling better than he found you."
