Ratan Tata has no dearth of fans and he is universally admired for the simplicity, grace, and humility that he displays in his personal and professional life. Despite being one of India’s most well-known industrialists and successful businessmen, he has always lived a simple life.
A few years ago, he was the brain and man behind a car for ‘every Indian,’ priced at Rs. 1 lakh. For more reasons than one, the Tata Nano was a game-changer for India. Even though Tata stopped manufacturing the car, it looks like the car still holds a special place in Ratan Tata’s heart.
The 84-year-old business tycoon has charmed netizens yet again with his humility. A recent video shows Tata arriving at Taj Hotel in Mumbai in a Tata Nano. The Chairman Emeritus of Tata Group of Industries came without a fleet of bodyguards.
The video which first appeared on Instagram immediately went viral, with many calling him a ‘legend’ for exuding such warmth and humility.
The man is winning hearts on the internet all over again, and this time, for another heartwarming reason. A video of Tata Trusts’ Chairman arriving at a hotel in Mumbai in a Tata Nano is going viral.
The video shared by Viral Bhayani shows Ratan Tata arriving at the Taj Hotel in his beloved Nano. Tata arrived at the hotel without any security guards. He was seen leaving the venue in the same car while sitting in the front seat with his driver.

Ratan Tata wrote: “Share the real reason behind launching Nano with us.”

At first, we were trying to figure out how to make two-wheelers safer. The doodles became four wheels, with no windows, no doors, just a basic dune buggy. But I finally decided it should be a car.

Tata Motors officially launched the Nano on January 10, 2008. However, for multiple reasons, including a decrease in sales, the company stopped manufacturing Nano a decade later, in 2018.
