Serving the Nation
Serving the Nation
AT the stroke of the midnight hour of 15 August 1947, India had awakened to freedom from the subjugation of several centuries. That is a moment to recall as the nation embarks on the 75th year of its Independence.
Across the decades since Independence, a galaxy of individuals and entities have been contributing to take India to ever greater heights. Larsen & Toubro is one such entity. Aligning corporate goals with national aspirations is in its DNA.
L&T has always focussed on sectors that complement India’s goals and help realise the dreams of 1.38 billion Indians. Our cover story narrates L&T’s major contributions in nation-building: reading it is to relive India’s growth journey over the past eight decades.
But neither India nor L&T basks only in the past glories: we are now charting a course to a brighter future with technologies for a sustainable world. The articles on L&T Fusion platform for Smart Cities, Farabi n-Paraffin & Derivatives Complex in Saudi Arabia and Mauritius Metro Phase-2A testify this.
L&T is a corporate with conscience. The article on COVID-19 measures narrates how L&T continues to help curb the pandemic and is mobilising smart technologies for this. There’s also a heart-warming article on its role in quenching the thirst of three Gujarat villages.
Let us sign off with the pledge to serve the motherland more and protect the hard-earned freedom. Happy Independence Day to you all in advance!
