Tata Trusts, A Legacy

                           Guiding Principle

                           "There is one kind of charity common enough

                           among us, it is that patchwork philanthropy which
                           clothes the ragged, feeds the poor, and heals the
                           sick. I am far from decrying the noble spirit which
                           seeks to help a poor or suffering fellow being.

                           However, what advances a nation or a community
                           is not so much to prop up its weakest and most
                           helpless members, but to lift up the best and the
                           most gifted, so as to make them of the greatest

                           service to the country."

                                                                               - Jamsetji Tata
