Test of English Language

Directions (Q. No. 101 to 115) : Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions
given below it. Certain words are given in bold to help you locate them while answering some of
the questions.

Cyrus Mistry, the heir apparent of the Tata empire, has an entrepreneurial legacy going back to
the turn of the last century.
The family's beginnings were humble. His grandfather, Shapoorji Pallonji Mistry, (born 1889)
lived in a small lower middle-class Parsi house with 11 siblings at Khetwadi, Grant Road in south
Bombay. He executed his first independent job of constructing the Gir-gaum Chowpatty pavement
around 100 years ago.
Every day, young Shapoor and his father Pallonji would walk to work from home to save the two-anna
train fare. "He made a profit of Rs 2,000 on the footpath contract within six months," said Jamsheed
Kanga, who was municipal commissioner of Mumbai in the mid-1980s. The now-retired IAS officer dug
into the Mistry family history some years ago and wrote an exhaustive chapter on Cyrus' grandfather as
part of a compilation, 'Parsis of the 20th Century', edited by Nawaz B Mody.
Pallonji(Cyrus's greatgrandfather) had started a small construction firm in partnership with an
Englishman Littlewood, called Littlewood Pallonji and Company. It was one of the firms involved in
constructing the Malabar Hill reservoir. But Pallonji struggled to make ends meet and welcomed his son
Shapoorji into the business.
After executing the Chowpatty foot-path construction project, young Shapoorji realised that this business
could be profitable earning Rs 2,000 in six months was what many graduates could not achieve and
he could do so without being a matriculate. "With his smartness and intelligence he picked up the
nuances of the trade very quickly and was of great assistance to his elderly father," said Kanga.
When Pallonji died in 1921, Shapoor-ji went on to form his own company, Shapoorji Pallonji
Construction Private Ltd (SPCL). In the beginning, it undertook simple jobs for the military and the
PWD, constructing barracks, small public buildings and municipal works. As his reputation grew, he
procured bigger contracts like construction of a small military hospital as well as an ammunition factory
in Bhopal and Kanpur, and a large hospital project in Sagar (now Madhya Pradesh).
"He also constructed a prisoner of war camp for Italian prisoners and training camps for
American soldiers in general warfare as well as an antisubmarine building at Versova, the Royal Air
Force camp at Worli and the Military Engineering mess at Colaba," said Kanga. By now Shapoorji had
gained sufficient experience in the industry and ventured into taking contracts to build private houses.
Some of his earlier projects were residential buildings in Colaba like Persepolis, He-liopolis and
Acropolis. The company also built bungalows for rich clients such as Sir Sorabji Pochkhanawala and Sir
Nowroji Saklatvala. One of its biggest projects then was the construction of Dhanraj Mahal near the
Gateway of India. The building was commissioned by Raja Dhunrajgirji Narsingirji, a nawab of the
former princely state of Hyderabad. "The whole complex was requisitioned by the Indian navy during
World War II. Even today it retains its old grandeur and the high quality of its construction enhanced
SPCL's reputation as a reliable contractor," said Kanga.
Not many know that the Bombay Central train terminus was also built by SPCL at a cost of
around Rs 1.6 crore. The work was commended by the then governor of Bombay, Sir Fredrick Sykes,
and The Times of India of December 18,1930, reported:

"From the engineering point of view, it is of supreme interest by reason of the fact that this
collection of huge structures has been erected within 21 months of laying the foundation stone here there
is beauty combined with utility, an impression of vast space of which none is wasted."
Other landmark buildings followed. The Reserve Bank of India, Bank of India and HSBC
buildings at Fort and the new State Bank of India headquarters at Nariman Point. The Shanmukhananda

16

hall at King's Circle, NCPA auditoriums, and the Tata and Jamshed Bhabha theatres at Nariman Point
were all built by the company.
