Important Personalities

Navsari also boasts of a big Parsi-Zoroastrian community. Dadabhai Naoroji, the ‘Grand Old Man of India’, who was the South Asian to be elected to the British Parliament; and Jamshetji Tata, founder of the Tata group of companies, were both born in Navsari. J. N. Tata’s birth place is still preserved as a memorial. Husband of Indira Gandhi, Feroz Gandhi belongs to Navsari. Jamsetji Nusserwanji Tata (March 3, 1839- May 19, 1904) was a Parsi Zoroastrian and a pioneer in the field of modern industry.

    I am from Jamshedpur and work with Tata Steel. This short article rekindles my cherished dream of visiting Navsari and pay homage to our revered founder late J N Tata at his birthplace.

    I wish best of Navsari.
