The Romance of Tata Steel
R. M. Lala


On August 26, 1907, was registered Tata Iron and Steel Company Ltd, later referred to as TISCO. “There was a certain debate over the name of the company,” writes R. M. Lala in The Romance of Tata Steel ( http://www.penguinbooksindia.com/ ). “Some of the family were of the opinion that Bapuji (Jamsetji) did not like the association of his name with his enterprises. Neither for his mills nor for the Indian Institute of Science had he allowed the use of his surname.”
