"I believe this year specially calls for all of us to be unified and helpful and is not the time to pull each other down," he added.

Urging people to be sensitive towards each other, he stressed for "more of kindness and more of understanding and patience than what one sees today."

Tata said: "while my presence online is limited, but I truly hope it will evolve into a place of empathy and support for everyone, no matter what your cause, rather than hate and bullying."
