Autor of #TATASTORIES: 40 timeless tales to inspire you. Tatastories is a collection of little-known stories of individuals, events and places from the Tata Group that have shaped the India we live in today.
We ask Harish questions about the book and why the Tata Group is deeply respected and valued for its contribution to the growth and development of India. Harish highlighted the words of Jamsetji Tata in the book. He said the community is not just another stakeholder in business but is, in fact, the very purpose of its existence and throughout the numerous tales. In another book, Tatalog, it is particularly emphasised that the DNA of every TATA enterprise is a combination of pioneering, purposive, moral and ‘not perfect’.
While reading #TATASTORIES, a feeling that is uniform for many is that we feel like a participant and not mere passive observers. Dancing across this long arc of time are thousands of beautiful, astonishing Tata Stories, many of which can inspire and provoke us, even move us to meaningful action in our own lives. These stories bring to vivid life the extraordinary longevity, vibrancy and success of Tata. But at their essence, they are simple, moving stories of great teams, men and women, which hold profound lessons for all of us.
