The Nano fever has not spared anyone, young or old. My colleagues at my previous office often used to pull my legs that I should go in a Nano instead of Scooty to the office!


The ‘first woman photojournalist’ of India, 96-year-old Homai Vyarawala, has sold her 55-year-old Fiat to buy the world’s cheapest car Nano.


Vyarawala sold her Fiat car to a vintage car lover in Mumbai after she found it difficult to get it repaired. Her Fiat car was imported from Italy 55-years-ago through sea route.


Hats off to Tata for making the dream of several middle class families in the country come true.

As expected, Jade Goody’s life is reportedly being adapted for a film tentatively titled Catch a Falling Star which will detail her poverty-ridden childhood and struggle with cancer.

Danny Hayward, a friend of Goody and one of three trustees of a fund set up to provide for her two children, Bobby, 5, and Freddie, 4, said a film on Goody’s life was being discussed. “Her story lends itself to a biographical film. She’s captured the mood of the nation. We’re talking about it, and we welcome approaches. We want it to tap into raising awareness of cervical cancer,” he said.

Goody’s family is reportedly keen on approaching The Football Factory director Nick Love to take up the project.
