Jamshedpur, March 4: A magic button that brought Jubilee Park alive, with thousands of fairy lights twinkling in memory of industrialist and visionary Jamshetji Nusserwanji Tata, has become most sought after destination. People from all walks of life thronged the park on Thursday and Friday to see the magic.
Illumination at Jubilee Park, always a must-see for thousands of steel city residents, will continue till March 5. This year, the lights focussed on events and awards received by Tata Steel. Lights also brought alive typical Tata concerns such as energy conservation and climate change as well as folk lore from life of Tata.
Behind the bright lights were the nimble fingers and imagination of visualisers and light men from Chandannagar, Bengal. They have been behind the Founder’s Day show for the past three decades, and this year, they took 45 days to create the magic. One of this year’s most delightful visual treat was the fountain’s myriad hues. Working models also caught the attraction of visitors.
The Jayanti Sarovar played host to nine floats, each depicting activities related to the corporate social responsibility of the Tatas.
Some of models features Tata Steel winning Golden Peacock Award, Tata Steel best corporate award and others.
There are several models on Tata Steel latest slogans ‘Values stronger than steel’ and company concerns like energy conservation and climate change as well as folk lore from Panchatantra.
An exhibition near Children’s Corner on the theme ‘Future Ready has been organised’. The giant pavilion was named Tata Steel saga and the river of progress showcasing progress of the steel major in three eras – early history, modernization and globalization.
