"You got to stand for something in your life...else you will fall for everything."
"As told by someone from Tata Administrative Services: Few months after 26/11, Taj group of Hotels owned by TATAs launched their biggest tender ever for remodeling all their Hotels in India and abroad. Some of the companies who applied for that tender were Pakistanis. To make their bid stronger, two big industrialists from Pakistan visited Bombay House (Head office of Tata) in Mumbai without an appointment to meet up with Ratan Tata since he was not giving them any prior appointment.
They were made to sit at the reception of Bombay house and after few hours message was conveyed to them that Ratan Tata is busy and cannot meet anyone without an appointment. Frustrated these two Pakistan industrialists went to Delhi and through their High Commission met up with than Commerce Minister Anand Sharma.
Sharma immediately called up Ratan Tata requesting him to meet up with the two Paki Industrialists and consider their tender "enthusiastically". Ratan Tata replied...you could be shameful, I am not" and kept the phone.
Few months later when Pakistani government placed an order of Tata Sumo's to be imported into Pakistan, Ratan Tata refused to ship a single vehicle to that country. This is the respect and love for motherland that Ratan Tata has. Something that our current Politicians should learn from. You got to stand for something in your life...else you will fall for everything..........Awake Country men, Nation is above everything else......"
