Jamasetji Tata pursued three dreams in his lifetime:
- The university – which he dreamed of providing the intellectual infrastructure to build the future of India.
- Steel – He knew that it will be most important building block of future of India.
- Hydroelectric energy, which would make the country self sufficient of power.
When he died in 1904, none of his dreams came true. the only success he lived to see coming true was the Taj Palace Hotel in Mumbai – a grand monument that still attracts the world to the city.
But the power and determination of his dreams was so strong that his successors worked so hard to make those dreams a reality.

Great dreams of great dreamers are always transcended.
