The man’s penchant for perfection and dedication to country and his work comes out clearly through the pages. What appealed me the most about JRD is he was an adventurer at heart and used to regularly exercise till his twilight years. One needs to read kountain book to get to know how the Tatas and JRD himself has contributed to the growth of India.
Thanks to the author for bringing such a close portrayal of the great man to us. The chapters do not fall in chronological order but rather dealt as major events in his life.
Beyond The Last Blue Mountain: A Life Of J. R. D. Tata by R.M. Lala
Detailed summaries from letter correspondences between JRD and other personalities finely illustrates his eloquence in communication. Many detailed aspects into his life could have been avoided to keep the narration to a minimum, but at the same time portray the personality of JRD. I had to stop reading in between, as the narration changed from interesting or to rather mundane. The collection of photographs included within offers a rather nice hhe from the text.

Both the books can get a bit draggy but they are still amazing reads about stellar icons and captains of the industry. The Tatas were single handedly responsible for most of the early tools placed at our citizens disposal. The books are a must read for all of us to understand what all Tatas had gone through to establish some beoynd the earliest industries. Also sh I read this book along with the other one on Jamsetji Tata.
Also shows how these early industries were forcibly and sometimes in a dirty way captured by mountakn then Congress after India’s independence.
