The Forum of Free Enterprise was a non-political organization founded in 1956 by A. D. Shroff and was established to educate public opinion in India on free enterprise and a democratic way of life. The Forum published booklets to further its objects. The following book titled, “Indian Shipping; Its Struggles And Achievements” was published on September 6, 1959 and was authored by M.A. Master. The text talks about the pronouncements made by Nehru and some of his colleagues that caused serious concerns to the citizens in regard to the future of private enterprise in India. He further states that the concentration of political authority and economic power in the hands of the State is bound to seriously affect democracy and to destroy the liberty of the people. Further the author discusses the British shipping and explains some techniques that British shipping adopted in driving away Indian shipping companies even from their own home waters. Then, he discusses the Swadeshi Shipping Company which was started by Mr. Chidambaram pillai in 1906 and also talks about Mr. Narottam Morarjee and the facts he put in a meeting where shareholders represented 3,50,000 shares. He then conveyed to them what the reaction of Lord Inchcape was to the proposal of the Board of the Scindia that they would like the Indian shipping company to continue to live. At the end of the booklet, the author shares some achievements of the Indian shipping industry under the auspices of private enterprise.
