Cyrus Mistry wanted to murder Tata Nano

If you can read the news lines and then read between the lines it is becoming very obvious by the day that the whole matter was that of Cyrus Vs Tata Nano.

He had not solutions to revive nor did he want an Electric variant… all he wanted was the Tata Nano project to be shelved… closed and murdered…

The car had put India on the map of the Automobile world… and that mystery man wanted to remove it from there.

Mistry, in his letter to Tata Sons board members had said that for Tata Motors to make a turnaround, Nano needed to be shut down as it had reached a peak loss of Rs 1,000 crore.

Even Auto industry veteran and Maruti Suzuki India Chairman RC Bhargava said Ratan Tata needs to be given credit for attempting to offer an affordable car to the masses through Nano something that even his company could not do or visualize.

Indian is surely blessed to have people like Ratan Tata… if there ever were sages who lived in India thousands of years ago…. they surely would have been like Ratan Tata and APJ Abdul Kalam who dedicated their entire life to pursue excellence.

China no longer requires spies because YOU with your smartphone are its eyes and ears!!!

Spy software that can listen to calls, track users, and make online purchases was found pre-installed on smartphones from Chinese companies including Lenovo, Huawei, Xiaomi, etc

Chinese Smart Phone brands to avoid

The latest findings, from German cybersecurity company G DATA, add to a growing list of similar spying software found on smartphones from Chinese companies.

“This is happening on a lot of phones,” said Andy Hayter, G DATA’s security… evangelist, in a phone interview.

In March, researchers with BlueBox found similar malware on the Xiaomi Mi 4 LTE, which they obtained during a trip to China.

E2O Plus… aka… the 4-door version

Finally we have an EV that  resembles a normal car in looks. Earlier our innovation was the Nano which hand almost no nose (bonnet)… then the E20 without or with a small rear… now finally we have a car that is “proportionate” or balanced in appearance and thus appealing to the eye.

The Rs150 lakh Ashok Leyland joke called “Circuit”

150 lakh Ashok Leyland joke called Circuit… don’t know if they pulled the name right out of Munnabhai MBBS movie.

Image result for circuit dialouges from munnabhai

The things people do in the name of Electric vehicles, clean and green energy. Just like Kodak tried to stay in the game by meddling in copy machines Ashok Leyland tried to jump the curve by buying a electric bus company called Optare in the UK.

Any Indian company that invest in Europe has seen red… even if they are the top companies in the world. Be it Suzlon… be it Tata Motors… be it Tata Steel… be it Amtek Auto… all have seen losses and had to sell those investments… not because of economics but because of “gamesmanship” which is a new word for cheating.

Why would Indian company buy UK technology and try to sell it in India??!!?? Make the bus and try to sell in UK… they bloody well cannot do it so try the govt to buy their stuff…

If you are still gaging for the numbers its almost identical to what one hears about li-ion vehicles 120kms range, 3 hrs charging time 75kmph top speed. The bus can carry about 30 (sitting) to 60 passengers.

The bus will cost between 1.5 Crore to 3.5 Crore…

All I have to say is give one finger salute… _l_ for the visionaries and the makers of this vehicle.
