Contained in these pages is the correspondence of a man who for the major part of his life was at the helm of affairs of the house of Tata, one of the largest industrial groups in India, and has left an indelible impression on the country's economic & social life. J.R.D. Tata was a prolific letter-writer, and this first-time compilation of some three hundred of his letters reveals various facets of his personality, his relationships with people, the projects he was involved in, his views on issues, his kindness, forthrightness and sense of humour, his concerns as a citizen, the values he lived by, and his personal interests. The range and depth of his interests and concerns are reflected in the huge cross-section of people these letters are addressed to: family members, his colleagues in Tata, business associates, ministers and bureaucrats, friends in India and abroad, as well as others who were not known to him. J.R.D. Tata's Letters bring to life the achievements of a twentieth century legend.
