Guess how the Rs 1 lakh ($2,200) car Nano was born?
It took some idle doodling by Ratan Tata, head of the Tata Group of companies, at lifeless board meetings, says a book chronicling its making.
'It started by my spending a lot of time doodling at boring board meetings. Most of us are victims of the environment in which we are and...we lose sight of the fact that we have a greater responsibility - a responsibility to serve the communities we live in to improve the quality of life of people we work with,' Ratan Tata recalled later at a gathering of Tata executives, according to the book Small Wonder: The Making of Nano.
