My first view of the Tata Nano

Despite all the hype and coverage that the Nano got, it had so far been tough to actually see one on the road. Today on a cab ride from Pune to Bombay, I got my first sighting of this little wonder. The cab driver told me of a couple of cases of nanos catching fire spontaneously. Turns out, it was due to some electrical short in the steering column some molten plastic due to the heat.

Good to see it on the road after all the controversy and adversities that this car had to suffer through. It was an ambitious undertaking of "thinking Big" by "thinking small". Kudos to the Tatas!
