RATAN or RATNA ...(Gem of Indian Industry) “PROMISE IS PROMISE”

Corus+Nano+Jaguar,Landrover +…+……=TATA, it has been said TATA to all of these .There is one strategic, aggressive, 71 year bachelor who is behind all these, this gentleman keeps tickling to the minutes of technology. Can role, ride as a co-pilot for combat aircraft F-16 to determine his courage and curiosity. Spends sleepless nights to put forward his steps. Ethical businessman says “PROMISE IS PROMISE” “BE INDIAN BUY INDIAN” with the release of Nano and Indica.Believes that TIME, TIDE AND TECHNOLOGY WAIT FOR NONE”.
2008 is a year that has lot of news to be hit on front page, Starting with the SENSEX, which definitely showed why it is marked as “BULL” it is, its wish to go up and down and you better be a specter. There were many reasons, and times the headlines were taken by this immense personality RATAN rather I would definitely call as RATNA a GEM of Indian industry in my view. Defining movements were release of NANO, deal with FORD for Jaguar, Landrover.Acquisition of Anglo-Dutch Corus was old story, for which TATA group definitely went with more aggressive approach of bidding. A lot of mixed comments and views were made for this bid. But he and his team were very much well aware of the fact. I think they were in parallel to enter in to LUXAY CAR market, by taking over Britain’s most famous names Jaguar and Land Rover from FORD for $2.3-billion deal. It was definitely a smart move because a lot of parts, and material for these vehicles is by TATA’s Corus Group, so was the acquisition.

AUTOEXPO 2008 at Delhi was completely rocked by TATA’s Nano, or moreover “peoples car” by launching it to cost one lakh!!! Which he had promised before five years. With his commitment with nano, thrown aside a lot of blown up critics and comments from aamadmi, analysts and from assembly. It was seen that he has overcome hurdles in regard with a PLANT, LAND, but was always in desire to make his dream come true. I think your eagle’s eye would have noticed that one side it is chaep, hardy, coutry trucks and cars and other side is luxury, look, branded and fashioned cars and trucks. It is like a cricket batsmen playing well with Indian flat pitch and scoring a century in bouncy Australian pitch. It is for sure that the values and brands of these will be definitely be retained by TATA.
 I feel short of words and pages to praise this simple, well respected diplomatic gentleman. It feels, proud and great that he is one among us, a “INDIAN”. He is pearl, passion, and pioneer of this industry
                         . I shall cut it short now saying THANK YOU to one of my pinup industrialist and wish that “Let his thoughts vision and views extend and explore more of the world Industry"

 let us live life and not act to impress"

Hakim Sanai story --No more nonsense! Lose yourself

My friend, everything existing
exists through him;
your own existence is a mere pretense.
No more nonsense! Lose yourself,
and the hell of your heart becomes a heaven.
Lose yourself, and anything can be accomplished.
Your selfishness is an untrained colt.

You are what you are:
hence your loves and hates;
you are what you are:
hence faith and unbelief.

Hope and fear drive fortune from your door;
lose yourself, and they will be no more.

At his door, what is the difference
between Moslem and Christian,
virtuous and guilty?
At his door all are seekers
and he the sought.

God is without cause:
why are you looking for causes?
The sun of truth rises unbidden,
and with it sets the moon of learning.

In this halt of just a week,
to be is not to be,
and to come is to go.

And does the sun exist
for the cock to crow at?
What is it to him
whether you are there or not?
Many have come, just like you,
to his door.

You won't find your way
in this street; if there is a way,
it is on your road of sighs.
All of you are far
from the road of devotion:
sometimes you are virtuous,
sometimes you are wicked:
so you hope for yourselves, fear for yourselves;
but when your mask of wisdom and folly
at last turns white, you will see
that hope and fear are one.

In His presence, silence is the gift of tongues

From Him forgiveness comes so fast,
it reaches us before repentance
has even taken shape on our lips.

He is your shepherd,
and you prefer the wolf;
he invites you to him,
and yet you stay unfed;
he gives you his protection,
yet you are sound asleep:
Oh, well done,
you senseless upstart fool!

He heals our nature from within,
kinder to us than we ourselves are.
A mother does not love her child
with half the love that he bestows.

You have broken faith,
yet still he keeps his faith with you:
he is truer to you
than you are to yourself,

He created your mental powers;
yet his knowledge is innocent
of the passage of thought.
He knows what is in your heart;
or he made your heart along with your clay;
but if you think that he knows
in the same way that you do,
then you are stuck like a donkey
in your own mud.

Hakim Sanai story -Silence is praise - have done with speech

A Ruby there is just a piece of stone:
and spiritual excellence the height of folly.
Silence is praise - have done with speech;
your chatter will only bring you harm and sorrow -
have done!

Belief and unbelief
both have their origin
in your hypocryte's heart;
the way is long only
because you delay to start on it;
one single step
would bring you to him:
become a slave,
and you will become a king.

The dumb find tongues,
when the scent of life reaches them
from his soul

Listen truly - and don't be fooled -
this is not for fools:
all these different shades
become one color
in the jar of unity;
the rope becomes slender
when reduced to a single strand.

Your intellect is just hotchpotch
of guesswork and thought,
limping over the face of the earth;
wherever they are, he is not;
they are contained within his creation.
Man and his reason are just the latest
ripening plants in his garden.
Whatever you assert about his nature
you are bound to be out of your depth,
like a blind man trying to describe
the appearance of his mother.
While reason is still tracking down the secret,
you end your quest on the open field of love.

The path consists in neither words nor deeds:
only desolation can come from these,
and never any lasting edifice.
Sweetness and life are the words
of the man wo threads this path in silence;
when he speaks it is not from ignorance,
and when he is silent it is not from sloth.

Hakim Sanai story --If he gives you poison, deem it honey

For the wise man
evil and good
are both exceeding good.
No evil ever comes from God;
whenever you think to see
evil proceeding from him,
you were better to look on it
as good.
I'm afraid that on the way of faith,
you are like a squinter seeing double,
or a fool quarreling with the shape of a camel.
If he gives you poison, deem it honey;
and if he shows you anger, deem it mercy.

Be contented with your lot;
but if you have any complaints,
go and take them to the Cadi,
and obtain satisfaction from him.
That's how the fool's mind works!

Whatever befalls you, misfortune or fortune,
is unalloyed blessing;
the attendant evil
a fleeing shadow.

'Good' and 'evil' have no meaning
in the world of the Word:
they are names, coined
in the world of 'me' and 'you'.

Your life is just morsel in his mouth;
his feast is both wedding and a wake.
Why should darkness grieve the heart?
- for night is pregnant with new day.

You say you've unrolled the carpet of time,
step then beyond life itself and reason,
till you arrive at God's command.

You cannot see anything, being blind by night,
and by day one-eyed with your foolish wisdom!

Hakim Sanai story -He treasures you more than you do yourself

The pure man unites
two in one;
the lover unites
three in one.

But I am frightened
lest your ignorance and stupidity
leave you stranded on the bridge.

He is the provider
of both faith and worldly goods;
he is none other
than the disposer of our lives.

He is no tyrant:
for everything he takes,
he gives back seventy-fold;
and if he closes one door
he opens ten others for you.

He treasures you more
than you do yourself.
Rise, have done with fairy tales;
leave your base passions,
and come to me.

You have to realize
that it is his guidance
that keeps you on the path
and not your own strength

Hakim Sanai story ----Leave this abode of birth and decay

He doesn't know his own self:
how should he know the self of another?
He knows only his hands and feet,
how should he know about God?
This is beyond the sage's grasp:
you must be a fool
if you think that you know it.
When you can expound on this,
you will know the pure essence of faith;
till then,
what have faith and you in common?
It is better to be silent
then to talk nonsense
like one of the learned;
faith is not woven
into every garment.

You were made for work:
a robe of honor awaits you.
How is it that you are satisfied
with mere rags?
How will you ever have riches
if you are idle sixty days a month?

Knowing what you know,
be serene also, like the mountain;
and do not be distressed by misfortune.
Knowledge without serenity is un unlit candle;
together they are honey-comb;
honey without wax is a noble thing;
wax without honey is only fit for burning.

Leave this abode
of birth and decay;
leave this pit,
and make for your destined home.
This heap of dust is mirage,
where fire seems like water.
