Talking about Nano, Ratan Tata talked about how he got the idea about making a car like Nano. He said that he saw a family of 4 sitting on a bike in heavy Bombay rains. That’s when he thought that he wanted to do more for such families who were risking their lives because they had no other option.

He also went on to add that by the time they launched the Nano, their production costs were higher but they had made a promise and they delivered. Talking about this decision he said that as he looks back at it, he is proud of the car and the decision to go ahead with it.

  • None can destroy iron, but its own rust can! Likewise, none can destroy a person, but his own mindset can.
