Celebrating Jamshetji Tata's birthday, generosity and art
The Taj Group of Hotels celebrated the visionary Jamsetji Tata’s 175th birth anniversary with an art exhibition inaugurated by Mr. Ratan Tata. The exhibition showcased 36 works of art of one of Taj’s oldest employees - Mr. Newton Thomas D’Souza. And if you thought generosity ran only in the Tata family, you must include the employees of the Tata Group in it. Newton, currently the Manager (Food & Beverage Services) at The Taj Mahal Palace has donated 50% of his proceeds to support underprivileged cancer patients at the Tata Medical Center in Kolkata. Newton’s works have been displayed at the Jamshed Bhabha Theatre and the Tata offices in Mumbai and Jamshedpur among other venues. Newton has also held solo exhibitions at Bajaj Art Gallery (in 1996) and Jehangir Art Gallery (in 2000) to name a few.
