Ratan Tata wins 'Automotive Man of the Year' award
Tata Motors chairman Ratan Tata was named on Saturday 'The Automotive Man of the Year 2009', an award sponsored by news channel NDTV Profit to honour industrialists in the auto sector.
Speaking of his selection for the honour, Tata said: "This is a tremendous boost to my morale."
"I hope we can sustain ourselves through this difficult period and thereafter, looking back, people could say an Indian group nurtured the British brand," he said with reference to Tata Motors' acquisition of British luxury car brands Jaguar and Land Rover.
Commenting on his dream project for the small car Nano, he said: "I think Nano has been something that was a great challenge, an enjoyable challenge because it involved doing things that people said could not be done.
"The car will be out soon and I hope it will live up to the expectations everyone has from it."
