Shantanu says that on the way, he saw many dogs dying after being hit by the high speed of vehicles. It was extremely painful. It was found that the drivers could not see the dogs in time, this was a major reason for the accidents. This gave Shantanu the idea to make a collar reflector for dogs. After some experimentation, a collar was made with the name Metapause. With this, drivers could see the dogs from a distance even without street lights at night. Now the lives of street dogs were being saved. This small but important work was written in the newsletter of Tata group companies. This was noticed by Ratan Tata, who himself is very fond of dogs.
