Popular dairy brand Amul paid an emotional tribute to veteran industrialist Rahul Bajaj, who died on February 12. Amul shared a monochrome doodle of the head of the Bajaj group on Koo with the message, “Mera, uska, unka, inka, hamara Bajaj…” Amul captioned the post, “#Amul Topical: Tribute to one of India’s most dynamic and respected industrialists.”
On February 12, a statement from the Bajaj Group said that the industrialist, who had not been keeping well for some time, had died in the “presence of his closest family members”.
Here’s the post by Amul:
In April last year, Rahul Bajaj had resigned as the chairman of Bajaj Auto. He was, however, named Chairman Emeritus of the company for a five-year term. The company came up with some of India’s most well-known taglines. “You just can’t beat a Bajaj” and “Hamara Bajaj” are two of the most popular ones.
