Dorabji Tata (1859-1932): A Giant among Industrialists

N. Benjamin


Dorabji Tata was the topmost industrialist of his times. After his initial stint with Gandhi and Gokhale, he was close to the government and attempted to form a party of capitalists. His place in history is based on his contribution to India’s industrialization. His father conceived of a steel company and some other companies. Dorabji brought them into fruition. Besides, he established some companies at his own. He was elected president of the Indian Industrial Conference and nominated as a member of the Indian Industrial Commission. He had a rich collection of art treasures and promoted games and sports. His charities too were praise-worthy.
