Steel City gears up to pay tribute to its founder Jamsteji Nusserwanji
Jamshedpur, Feb 13: The Steel City is being decked up to pay tributes to the founder Jamsteji Nusserwanji Tata on his 181th birth anniversary on March 3. It commemorates the vision of Jamsetji Nusserwanji Tata after whom the steel city took its name nearly a century ago. The theme this year is ‘Decade Ready – Connected. Agile. Sustainable’.
The entire Jubilee Park, including the Jayanti Sarovar and Upvan, is being decked up for the week-long festivities. Instead, there will be a complete representation of the founder Jamshetji Nusserwanji Tata’s visions. Inside steel works floats would demonstrate how the departments have incorporated their working based on Tata philosophy.
Meanwhile, the company as part of its mission for a Swachh and Green city has decided not to use thermocol formations during decoration at the Jubilee Park this year.
As per the plans the public square in Bistupur, a tree bank at Sidhgora and a park at Ram Mandir in Bistupur would be inaugurated before the founder’s day celebration. The renovation of Dorabji Tata park near Keenan Stadium in Northern Town, Bistupur would be completed before Founder’s Day.
“Like every year work is in full progress for the Founder’s Day. Works is carried out on a war footing to complete widening work of (Straight Mile Road (stretch between Jusco roundabout and Lady Ghandy roundabout), Monument Road (Northern Town in Bistupur), Inner Circle Road (stretch near Tulsi Bhavan in Bistupur), Tubemaker’s Club Road (Nildih in Golmuri), and Outer Circle Road (in Bistupur). Groundwork has begun for illumination at Jubilee Park where light artistes from Chandernagore, Bengal, will start transforming the parks into fairy land. Other popular green lungs like Bhetiya Park (Kadma), Dorabji Tata Park (Northern Town) and Nildih Park (near Telco) will also be lit up for the big day,” said an official of Tata Steel.
Besides, the annual tributes paying celebration inside the premises of Tata Steel works and illumination of the Jubilee Park, which is primarily the company’s affair, several of the city based social organisations have planned to hold programmes on 3rd March to pay their heartily tributes to the iconic personality of the Indian history. These orgnisations will take out colourful pageantry near Food Plaza on March 3 to pay tributes to the visionary.
