The story of the life of one of the country's most influential industrialists and innovators. The chronicle of the life of Jamsetji Nusserwanji Tata is fascinating by reason of its impersonal approach, its old-world flavour and accent. It is for this reason that the publishers have not revised the text. The central protagonist of the chronicle can rank among the greatest pioneers of industrial enterprise of all time. In industrial matters he used 'a giant's strength like a giant'. His performance is unparalleled in India. Jamsetji Tata laid the foundations and largely consolidated the position of Indian industry and enterprise. In Indian industry the terms 'integrity' and 'Tata' are synonymous, with the result that the house of Tata and its far-flung organization have the stamp of stability, security and success. It was not an easy success and there is at no stage in its development any trace of the nouveau-rich make-up.
