Tata Steel is close to Ratan Tatas heart
It is impossible that Ratan Tata is being talked about and there is no mention of Tata Steel. Tata Steel is so close to his heart because thats where he started his career.
Ratan Tata joined Tata Steel as a trainee and from here he became the chairman of the Tata Group. Today Tata Steel is one of the leading companies in the country. The company was started in 1907. From the shackles of slavery to the new dawn of freedom, this company saw great ups and downs. But today this company is one of the successful steel companies of the country.
However, there was a time when Tata Steel did not even have money to pay salaries to its employees. The year 1942 was when Tata Steel was going through a bad phase. Then the entire responsibility of the company was on the shoulders of Dorabji Tata. Dorabji Tata was very worried about this financial crisis of his company. They could not figure out a way to save the company from this big crisis.
Then Lady Meherbai, wife of Sir Dorabji Tata, suggested the company to avoid this financial crisis by mortgaging her jewellery. He had one necklace of 245 carats. It was made of diamond. At that time the value of that diamond was about 1,00,000 pounds. By mortgaging this loss, he decided to bail out the company from the financial crisis. Today, Tata Steel is one of the top steel companies in the country.
