Nano & West Bengal

September 5, 2008

The sequence of events that have happened in the last few weeks ( Aug/Sep 2008) in West Bengal are very painful. Now the intellectuals of West Bengal have all started speaking and people every where are discussing what is right and what is wrong. What if the Tata’s pull out? What would happen to the other investments that have been lined up? Our friends from the media are pretty active speculating and reporting. Mamata Banerjee has grabbed significant space in print as well as electronic media.

The Nano project is a very significant milestone for Indian Business . The entire country and Indians world wide are passionate about  the success of the Nano is some way . The decision of Ratan Tata and his team to do this project in West Bengal must have been taken after taking into account , all the positive and negative factors of West Bengal. I think their decision to locate the nano project in West Bengal would prove to be quite correct in the future . The current situation in Singur has flamed the passion of people in West Bengal and they have now got more attachment with  the Nano project and they will now bend backward to make the Nano project happen. This is Bengal, where one lady ( right or wrong) was able to bring the very strong leftist government to their knees , where the governor has been asked to play the role of a mediator in this battle and where a reputed group like the Tatas are being pulled from all sides . A solution will emerge , and the Nano project will get energised and boosted with the passion of millions of people from West Bengal and other parts of India. Welcome to Indian Democracy and diversity. It is amazing and mind boggling.
