The True Folkswagon

you can buy a tata nano
[#]

Sir, now you can buy a Tata Nano. Hurray !!

Business Week

It’s called the Nano, for its high technology and small size. It’s cute, compact, and contemporary. It’s a complete four-door car with a 623-cc gas engine, gets 50 miles to the gallon, and seats up to five. It meets domestic emissions norms and will soon comply with European standards. It’s 8% smaller in outer length than its closest rival, Suzuki’s Maruti 800, but has 21% more volume inside. And at $2,500 before taxes (value-added taxes increase the price by about $300), it is the most inexpensive car in the world. Starting this fall, the Nano will roll off the assembly lines at a Tata Motors (TTM) plant in Singur, Bengal, and navigate India’s potholed roads.

There was a blogpost here

There was a blogpost here that I posted for fun, couple of hours back. It read that Lazy Geek will be directing Mani Ratnam. On the hindsight as they say here, I didn’t want to use the names of real people so I deleted the entry.

But here’s the fun link. Write your own news. Again do not use real names.

S Anand has a neat kollywood music quiz[Part 1 & 2]. He tells me that a tougher 70′s quiz is en-route. The pompous blogger in me wants to add that I got all of them right.
