Sakchi - a dream come true

Sakchi a harsh and demanding land yielding a meager living to its tribal inhabitants was transformed within a few years of the arrival of the Tatas. They had succeeded in transforming the bush land into the well-designed, livable township now known as ‘Jamshedpur’. It was the Founder Jamsetji’s vision that provided the inspiration to build the township. Before he died, Jamsetji had conjured up a concrete image of the future town to his son, Dorabji Tata.

“Be sure to lay wide streets planted with shady trees, every other of a quick growing variety. Be sure that there is plenty of space for lawns and gardens. Reserve large areas for football, hockey and parks. Earmark areas for Hindu temples, Mohammedan mosques and Christian churches.”
