Sir Ratan Tata (1871-1918) The Philanthropist par excellence
A hundred years is not too long to recall the memory of Sir Ratan Tata - a man of great talent and formidable achievements in a comparatively brief lifetime of 47 years. Among the many legacies he left behind, the most inspiring one is the Sir Ratan Tata Trust.
He participated in the industrial undertakings promoted by his father Jamsetji and then joined his brother to launch companies such as the Tata Iron & Steel Company, the Tata Electric Companies and the Indian Institute of Science. He showed a keen interest in areas beyond that of trade, commerce and industry. He was motivated by a spirit of nationalism and national pride.
The very thought that man is the core of all industrial activities can be seen through the concept of trusteeship established by the Sir Ratan Tata Trust followed by Sir Dorabji Tata Trust and the Tata Companies.
