Dude! The comments u made don't seem to be in 'lighter vein' at all. U could say i lack sense of humour, but u really gotta appreciate the effort taken by Ratan tata and his team. I am not a tata lover by in any sense of the word, but i really do respect him for what he is trying to do-Bring affordable motoring to the masses. And What do u do? sit in front of the damn computer and type away nonsense regarding something u havn't seen or know anything about. Sorry if i sound rude. This is not a personal attack or anything, but, if u don't have anything worthwhile to contribute, plsease refrain fron posting nonsense.

I guess that the CNBC ticker was taken from this spec sheet. A lot of the data looks common.

Could this be the greatest day in Indian automotive industry.
The unveiling of the car, which over 300 million Indians can afford.
Man this is just awesome.
Can't wait can't wait.

Maruti on the backfoot against the Tatas’

Maruti for the first time admitted today that its sales could also take a hit by the Tata car. “We have maintained an over 50 per cent market share for a long time now and with increasing competition this kind of monopoly is becoming a thing of the past,” Nakanishi said. “

How soon will be a question we'll be soon faced with. It may be months before the bookings and deliveries start.

We will wait for your picture uploads, I hope they have internet access within the PM so that you can upload quickly.

Dont forget to carry your camera data cable.

Is there a live telecast?? Probably on Star / Zee / Neo sports*?? Or is CNBC / NDTV? Who is going to cover the event LIVE? I am, as stated earlier, staying home. Honest!!


* I should admit to being a bit pi***d off by Economic Times carrying sports news - mostly about cricket - on its front page.
