Jamshedpur, March 5: Jubilee Park was abuzz with activities on the Thursday of lighting organised as part of the founder’s day. Today being last second day people in large number came to see it. Due to rain the illumination has been extended for another day.
Illumination at Jubilee Park, always a must-see for thousands of steel city residents. This year, the lights focussed on projects of Tata Steel.
Behind the bright lights were the nimble fingers and imagination of visualisers and light men from Chandannagar, Bengal. They have been behind the Founder’s Day show for the past three decades, and this year, they took 45 days to create the magic. One of this year’s most delightful visual treat was the fountain’s myriad hues. Working models also caught the attraction of visitors.
As part of the Founder’s Day celebrations an exhibition is being held near the Children’s Park of the Jubilee Park. Moreover , Tata Steel and its subsidiary Jusco as part of its initiative to involve masses of other localities is organising laser light display on the theme ‘homage to founder’ at Beldih Lake in Dhatkidih between March 3 and 4 on the occasion of founder’s day celebration.
Founder’s Day was first instituted by Tata Steel on March 3, 1932. It was D N Madan, Chief Accountant, Tata Iron and Steel Company, who first conceived the idea of observing and celebrating an annual gathering to commemorate the birth anniversary of J.N. Tata.
Founder’s day provided him with an opportunity of expressing his regard for the memory of the genius to whose faith and adjustment, energy and perseverance, the works, the towns and the environs of Jamshedpur bear enduring witness.
