Remembering Jamsetji Tata - Legendary Father of Indian Industry

3 March, 2014 - 175th birth anniversary of Jamshetji Tata, One of the big founders of Modern India. He was the founder of Tata Group, India's biggest conglomerate company.


Jamshetji Tata (3 March 1839 – 19 May 1904)
Jamsetji Tata was a great visionary and businessman who had devoted his life to set up :

  • A World Class Steel & Iron Company (TATA Steel)
  • A World Class Institution (IISC Bangalore)
  • A Unique Hotel (Taj Mahal Hotel, Mumbai)
  • A Hydro-Electric Power Plant (TATA Power)


Our first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru once said - 
"When you have to give the lead in action, in ideas - a lead which does not fit in with the very climate of opinion - that is true courage, physical or mental or spiritual, call it what you like, and it is this type of courage and vision that Jamsetji Tata showed. It is right that we should honour his memory and remember him as one of the big founders of modern India."

We pay our tribute to the legend, who had founded the TATA Group - Largest Conglomerate of India - which operates in more than 100 Countries and markets in 6 Continents and made every Indian proud, on his 175th birth anniversary.

Hello World

I had heard about blogs few years back. Since then I wanted to write my blog. But, for some reasons like, what to write, how to write etc, always stopped me. Finalizing an address for the blog is most depressing thing. Address of your choice will be unavailable and to think of a name, which would be available will take a lot of time. " Sorry, this blog address is not available " will vanish your enthusiasm/excitement for blogging, unless you come up with a really unique and out-of-box kind of word/words. BTW, my blog name is not so out-of-box, but it's in Hindi (my mother-toung). This blog-name thing is one of the significant reason, I am coming up with my blog a bit late. Logged in to blogger so many times earlier, but I was not getting a name which I like. But, this time I was determined to start my blog and So friends, this is the start of  "meri-jigyasa.blogspot.com". Edit: Now, I have a custom domain "www.merijigyasa.com" for my blog. Thank
