The Heartbeat of a Trust

The Story of the Sir Dorabjio Tata Trust

Year First Published: 1984

If the first book was on creation of wealth The Heartbeat of a Trust is on the distribution of wealth in pioneering institutions which were the first in the country:

The Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) – 1932

Tata Memorial Hospital (TMH) – 1941

Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR) – 1945

National Centre for the Performing Arts (NCPA) – 1966

The author has made it a story not based on just institutions but the people who created them like Dr. Homi Bhabha who called the TIFR the ‘cradle of India’s atomic energy programme.”

The book is for the moment out of print but the author plans to cover a part of it in a forthcoming book on “The Effective Use of Wealth” on a much wider canvas.
