This story was recently shared on Quora.
The officer was on a temporary duty in Delhi to attend the republic day parade. He decided to stay for two nights in Delhi and booked a room in the hotel Taj. In the evening of the first day of his stay he called the reception and requested them to get his dress iron, the room service boy who came to collect hi dress was shocked to see his uniform and asked for a selfie. The boy was thrilled to meet an army officer for the first time in person and saluted, followed by Jai Hind.
Later at night he got a call from the reception and was asked politely to come down for dinner as it couldn’t be served in his room. The staff approached him with the manager leading the contingent and he was handed a beautiful bouquet. The manager himself had dinner with him.
Next day the officer was provided with a BMW car for his move to the resident House.
On the day of checkout, he was told that his stay has been sponsored by the hotel. The receptionist said “You protect our Nation. So this is our small token of gratitude for you. We respect your patronage.”
The officer was deeply touched by the respect shown to him by the staff and wrote to the CEO of TAJ group of hotels. He soon received a reply stating that Taj group of hotels have decided to give a discount to Army Officers for their stay in TAJ hotels across the country.
