Comment of the day – Jezza – “Tata should be commended for what they’ve done so far. They aren’t perfect, no manufacturer is. It is just Tata that gets scrutinised a lot than the rest. Very unfair. I don’t agree on buying Indian products to show patriotism. If I were to buy a product on its merit, Tata products would definitely be on top of my list.”
