Tata Nano on radio

They are talking about the Tata Nano and the owner on the Canadian Broadcasting Company radio right now.

I have heard a lot about it on the media lately.

They said Mr. Tata is 25 one of the most powerful businessmen in the world. I have never heard of him until now!

Tata owns Tently Tea, BIG steel mills, resorts, hmmm... all sorts of stuff.

Apparently he is buying Jaguar and Land Rover.

Interesting stuff. Sounds like India is finally taking off the way Japan did in the 60's.

You know you're a fuel economy nerd when you can say to yourself, without a hint of embarrassment, "I wonder what it's like to drive..."
