Amazing and humble

If you can have amazing and humbling experience in one sentence then it would apply to TATA's and JRD TATA. Delivery was very good and so was the story. Worth a read to get inspired from one of the best human being who lived on this planet.

JRD Tata a life to emulate

Not taking credit away from Warren Buffet's charity or Bill And Melinda Gates foundation, JRD Tata really created an example of how an entrepreneur can earn to only engage in philanthropic activities. His legacy is continued by Ratan Tata. I bow to these heroes.

Wow

not surprisingly, it's an awesome story. The narration was excellent with fitting background songs. Given 1 star less because the grip was lost a few times when there are some songs/melodies/mantras played in between the story.

Overall brilliantly performed ***** ALL FIVE STARS

The book offers glimpses of legendry Indian industrialist J.R.D. Tata’s life. The most memorable lines for me are brilliantly performed by Boman Irani: “I believe that the social responsibilities of an industrial enterprise should extend even beyond serving people to the environment. This need is now fairly well recognized but there is still considerable scope for most industrial ventures to extend their support not only to human beings but also to the land to the forests to the waters to the creatures that inhabit them”. Similarly, Shernaz Patel’s performance is extraordinary. The narrators make this book a memorable one. The book also reminded me of Langston Hughes’s poem, “Hold fast to dreams For if dreams die Life is a broken-winged bird That cannot fly ….” J.R.D Tata’s life cannot be captured in a one-hour audiobook. He dreamed big and worked hard to make them real, He is the founder of the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR), Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC), Air India, and more than 80 companies. J.R. Tata said and I quote “I do not want India to be an economic superpower. I want India to be a happy country.” And this was the measure of his value system. Great book and everybody will learn something new.
