- a dream come true
Sakchi a harsh and demanding land yielding a meager living

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

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.”
