Have you heard anything on the Tata Nano project of late? I did not. This project hogged the limelight till the time it moved to Gujarat, after which everyone seem to have forgotten about it. Of course, much larger happened in the mean time esp the Mumbai bomb blasts which, oddly, seem to suggest that bad news follows Tata’s every where. But I think the Mumbai blasts and the Mamata’s senseless agitations actually helped Tata a household name within India as well as abroad which might help them in the long run ini saving costs to build up a brand.
