A Promise Is a Promise..

Yes, Mr. Tata. Thanks for living up to it. You made me proud with the People’s car Nano.. I have been waiting for this news since four years now. I can’t express how much pride I felt when I read your interview on ET today with my morning cuppa. I have been resisting this post since yesterday, and now that excitement literally pulled me from slumber to spill over in all the words that I could find.Made me dwell on the memories of Mr. Kerouac.. Let me dedicate this to you, as it fits you so apt in this moment.

“Here’s to the crazy ones.
The misfits. The rebels.
The troublemakers. The round
pegs in the square holes – the
ones who see things differently.
They’re not fond of rules and
they have no respect for
the status quo. You can praise
them, disagree with them,
quote them, disbelieve them,
glorify or vilify them.
About the only thing that you
can’t do is ignore them.
Because they change things.”

The “people’s car” is a wonderful example of India’s mid-20st Century mindset and its squandered chance at 21st Century development. My short essay on this, India Going Nowhere Fast, can be read at http://memestreamblog.wordpress.com/2007/10/12/india-going-nowhere-fast/.
