So, is Narendra Modi a national hero for rescuing the Nano -- the car for the common man? The one lakh car? How does one feel about the fact that Ratan Tata, known to be one of the most honest businessmen in India, is sharing the stage with Narendra Modi, one of the most villified politicians by the educated elite (a crowd that ironically, Tata belongs to, although I have no idea if he ever vocally criticized Modi). Are we to forget Modi the communal evil now, since he has recently been exonorated from some communal carnage in the state? Is his new avatar the saviour of capitalism? Even his toughest critics will have to praise him for this move.
This story is as much about the Nano, capitalism and industry in India -- as much as it is about Narendra Modi, the good guy.
