Finally, Ratan Tata admits mistake

Finally, Ratan Tata has admitted that his companies “might have gone too far too fast” which is what I have stated on this blog long time back when everybody was going ballastic about Tata’s acquisition of Corus and Jaguar Land Rover (JLR).

Are Tatas walking their talk with respect to Nano booking?

I don’t think so. Here is my reasoning for the same.

I am glad to say that I have been proved wrong


Nano booking terms unethical-Lets not book Nano

As mentioned earlier in one of my blogs, people should not get carried away by booking the Nano car. As mentioned earlier, the terms of booking the Nano cars are unethical for the following reasons:

Executives at Tatasky lie

I had earlier posted my experience with Tatasky when my wife and I wanted to watch Slumdog Millionaire. What happened after that is evident from the email I received from the COOO (I didn’t add the “O” by mistake. Its actually a designation.) and my response to him.

Yesterday must have been a sad day for JRD Tata

Yesterday, my wife and I decided to see Slumdog Millionaire on Tatasky. Tatasky was advertising heavily on their system. In fact, you could not turn on Tatasky without being forced to watch the advertisement for Slumdog Millionaire. The price very attractive, just Rs. 25.

Tata should not have bought JLR-I told you so

I have discussed earlier that there was no need for Tata to buy Jaguar/Landrover company. Not only Tatas didn’t have a strategic fit (its car brands are no where close to JLR in terms of positioning) but also they were looking for unnatural growth by buying a company and brands which were too big for Tatas car manufacturing capabilities and brands. Its going to be a tough time for Tatas in the coming months/years.
