“There is total disappointment all across. Many of us were guessing what the gift could be, for over a year.

Gopinathan said, as quoted by the national daily, “To celebrate this occasion, I am happy to share that we have created a special souvenir for all our associates. This souvenir represents the boundless energy that makes TCS tick round the clock and will help remind us of our glorious journey and inspire us to step ahead, fearlessly, into the future.”
