Jamsetji Tata JAMSETJI TATA
The man who saw tomorrow
Can you think of a man who has two sons and adopts a research institute as his third? That was Jamsetji Tata, the greatest Indian industrialist ever! A man with a vision so clear that he could see a tomorrow that was beyond his own life. He dreamt such giant dreams, of such stupendous proportions, that they could only be realized after he was no more. He was aware of this and planned for it by preparing a competent team that was committed to his dream, and inspired it with a kindred spirit.
A man who thought big but also cared for the small. A man who provided generous scholarships to nurture the talent of tomorrow and made an endowment in his will for building India's first institute of advanced scientific education - the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. With the establishment of his steel plant, he made a quantum shift in the nature of his business. From a country of traders, India stepped into a world of industrialization. No wonder many assert that Jamsetji Tata is the father of modern Indian Industry.
That was Jamsetji Tata - the man who saw tomorrow. This is a dramatized version of Jamsetji Tata's life.
