Tatas go by the book
If you’ve marveled at all the ‘stuff’ you have brought home from your trips around the globe, this might just give you an inferiority complex. For it was with great passion that scions of industrialist Jamsetji Tata, Sir Dorab and Sir Ratan Tata collected art from their worldly travels.
All of this now rests at the Chhatrapati Shivaji Vastu Sangrahalay (the Prince of Wales museum), though we wonder why they didn’t build one for themselves! In a first such publication, historians and aesthetic gurus have chronicled 151 prized pieces from the ‘Tata collection’ in a book, East meets West.
