He is one of the biggest business tycoons of India, chairman of India’s largest and oldest business conglomerate. We have seen him very quiet at difficult times. As it seems he is a very private person, and world knows nothing about his life away from his office.
We are talking about Ratan Naval Tata, the ex chairman of Tata Group. For decades we have seen Mr. Ratan Tata pioneering the Indian automotive industry to a new dimension. It is no surprise, that Ratan Tata has been emotionally attached with Tata Motors. He made the impossible task possible with the Tata Indica and Tata Nano. To put it in a simple way, we can say, Ratan Tata is crazy about cars, in his personal life and professional life as well.
During his tenure as the chairman of Tata Group, he has been spotted many times behind his exotic car’s steering near his residence on South Bombay roads. It is also a known fact that every weekend he takes his cars for a spin. Now, as he has retired from the post, he invests more time for his exotic rides. He is also known as one of the few business tycoons around the world who loves to take the seat behind the steering wheel rather than being seated at the rear and driven by chauffeur. Inside Ratan Tata’s garage there are dozens of beautiful cars and we tried to bring you one look at them.

Train accidents at level crossings are common. Usually, the crossings are unmanned and people attempt to cross before the train arrives. They sometimes cannot make it and it leads to a big tragedy. Hundreds of people are killed across the world every year due to train collisions at level crossings.
On July 18th 2015, in New Paris, Indiana, a Chrysler 300 limo got stuck on the tracks and found itself in the path of a cargo train. The train driver could not stop in time and rammed into the limo dragging the car along with it. You can hear the brakes of the train screeching. Luckily, the driver and passengers of the limo made it out in time and no one was injured in the accident.
What is surprising is that the limo did not split into two as everyone would have expected. That should be because of its exceptionally strong mid structure. Hats off to those who designed the car.
With increasing number of accidents at level crossings, I hope that this video will help increase awareness. Drive safe and never attempt to cross in front of an oncoming train. Always be careful while crossing an unmanned railway crossing.
News has come out of Fiat India that it is seriously considering the option of launching cars in India from its Chrysler portfolio, which includes Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge. Enrico Atanasio, Fiat India Senior Vice-President, Corporate Commercial, said, “I believe that we should look at cars from the Fiat-Chrysler portfolio and we are studying that continuously.”
The Fiat Group has decided to launch Chrysler, Jeep and Alfa Romeo in the Indian market. Alfa Romeo could be the first of these brands to be launched in India and to start with it will be brought as a CBU (completely built unit).
The new brands will be sold alongside Maserati and Ferrari cars which are already present in the Indian market. At the moment we don’t know when Fiat will bring these brands into India but currently a team of senior executives are doing researches to carry out the product clinics for the Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV. Fiat holds a major share in Chrysler since 3 years and the American brand will use the Ranjangaon plant, to assemble the completely-knocked-down (CKD) models. The Chrysler and Alfa Romeo models will go head to head with cars like Mercedes, Audi or BMW.
