Jamshedpur decked up for Founder’s Day
Jamshedpur, March 1: Tata Sons’ Chairman, N Chandrasekaran will arrive in Jamshedpur on March 2 to pay homage to the Founder.
Tata Group Chairman Emeritus, Ratan Tata has been invited by Tata Steel but there is still an element of doubt, though, over his participation in the 183rd birth anniversary celebration of Jamsetji Nusserwanji Tata in Jamshedpur on March 3.
According to the schedule, N Chandrasekaran will arrive at Sonari Airport on Wednesday, March 2.
Later in the evening, Chandrasekaran will inaugurate the illumination inside Jubilee Park and pay homage to the Founder. The illumination will be in place till March 4.
To give the occasion an excitingly colourful look of Alice’s Wonderland, 40 landmark locations across Jamshedpur have been illuminated with exquisite light designs.
The Founder’s life-size statue and some areas in Jubilee Park have been illuminated. The illumination is not open to public viewing like in the past and thus the décor has been planned in a symbolic pattern.
On March 3, Natarajan Chandrasekaran and senior company officials will pay floral tributes to the Founder JN Tata inside Tata Steel works. Even inside the steel works, there will not be any floats and the contingents to pay floral tributes have been trimmed.
The Chairman will also pay homage to the Founder at Postal Park in Bistupur.
The usual pageantry or floats/ marching contingent organized in front of the Founder’s Statue at Postal Park in Bistupur has been cancelled in view of COVID-19 restrictions.
An exhibition at Steelenium Hall inside Jamshedpur Works will also be inaugurated on March 3, 2022.
One of the key features of this year’s celebration will be the illumination of more than 40 landmark spots in Jamshedpur including heritage buildings, places of worship, dozens of roundabouts et al. The artistic assimilation of colored lights will be a key feature of the celebrations that will be a welcome reminder to citizens and visitors on the beauty of the city.
The annual celebration this year will be themed on “Life@TataSteel – Build the tomorrow you deserve.”
The Steel City will pay tributes to the founder, Jamsetji Nusserwanji Tata on his 183rd birth anniversary. The celebrations commemorate the vision of the Founder after whom the steel city took its name over a century ago.
