Building the Greatest Company in the World
Tatalog: Eight Modern Stories from A Timeless Institution provides readers with an insider glimpse of the challenges faced by Tata companies and how they rose above them all and carved a name for themselves. The book vividly brings forth never-before-heard-of actual cases. Beyond the Last Blue Mountain: Written with J.R.D. Tata's cooperation, this superb biography tells the JRD story from his birth to his death in 1993 in Switzerland. Divided into four parts, the book explores JRD's life-from his birth in France to his accession to the chairmanship of the Tata Group-his passion for aviation, his half-century-long stint as the outstanding personality of Indian industry and glimpses of his friendships with personalities like Jawaharlal Nehru, Mahatma Gandhi and Indira Gandhi, among others. For the Love of India: The Life and Times of Jamsetji Tata provides an account of the unerring instinct of Jamsetji Nusserwanji Tata, a man who knew what it would take to restore the pride of a subjugated nation and help it prepare for a place among the leading nations of the world once it came into its own. The book draws upon fresh material from the India Office Library in London and other archives, as also Jamsetji's letters, to portray the man and his age. It is an absorbing account that makes clear how remarkable Jamsetji's achievement truly was, and why, even now, one hundred years after his death, he seems like a man well ahead of his time.
