Replying to an email appeal by the Atomic Energy Workers’ and Staff Union of Bhabha Atomic Research Centre to save Dr Homi J Bhabha’s house and convert it into a museum, Ratan Tata, chairman of Tata Trust, wrote last month that while he would like the house to be preserved as a museum, he had no way to assist them.

“The NCPA now plans to auction the home of Dr Bhabha… We hope that your help and contribution towards this cause will be beneficial for future generations,” wrote Prashant Worlikar, president of the Atomic Energy Workers’ and Staff Union, on April 14. On May 2 Tata wrote: “While I appreciate your writing to me with regard to the auction of Dr Homi Bhabha’s residence, I must inform you that I am not personally involved in this matter and therefore have no way to assist, although I would personally be pleased to see this beautiful house preserved as a museum.”
