“If you cannot make it greater, at least preserve it. Do not let things slide. Go on doing my work and increasing it, but if you cannot, do not lose what we have done already.”

He launched provident fund, gratuity, and accident compensation fund for workers long before they were statutory in the west. His idea of a iron and steel company was formed while visiting Manchester and listening to Thomas Carlyle, English philosopher and author lecture. His statement “ the nation that has the steel will have the gold” struck by him as it was desire to see India as the most advanced country and make it an industrial nation he decided to build a steel plant though British government was skeptical to support this venture. He visited America to lran more about its steel plant and didn’t like the conditions the workers were treated there and decided that would not happen to the workers in his plant. He described a township for the steel workers to his son Dorab in a letter. Seeing the pollution caused from the mills he decided to create a reservoir and artificial waterfall that would create hydroelectricity. He also wanted a place that would teach the young Indians minds the science but he did not live to see any of these ideas being created. One of the greatest creations by the Tatas during his lifetime was perhaps the creation of Taj Mahal the luxury hotel, the greatest gift to Bombay.

After Jamsetji Tata, comes Jehangir Rantanji Dadabhoy Tata (JRD).Just like Jamsetji Tata he also was a visionary. Born into the Tata Family in Paris on July 29’1904, JRD had a cosmopolitan upbringing. In 1925, R D Tata inducted his son JRD into the Tata sons as an unpaid apprentice and a year later on his father’s death he became the firm’s director. JRD was passionate about flying and was India’s first license holder to fly. In 1932, JRD flew from Karachi to Bombay and gifted the nation its first commercial airline later which became Indian Airlines and Air India on which he served as a chairperson....
