Amongst his  many achievements

       Jamsetji helped  pioneer India's textile
       industry;  he built Bombay's first
       modern  hotel  and  planned a  hydro-

       electric scheme  with  which  it was
       hoped  Bombay would  become a
       'smokeless city',  free from  the soot

       and grime of coal-burning textile  mills
       and other factories;  he conceived  an
       institute of science, the first of its kind
       in  Asia  and the launching  pad for

       India's scientific advance;  and the
       then  revolutionary idea of a  modern
                                                                                                   THt:.: PARTNLRStilP FIRM

       The larger portion of his  wealth  was

       allotted to education.  Regarding it as  a
       trust,  he invested  it in various
       schemes for the  benefit of India.                                                     ____ .... - ...
