 Top 45 Short Inspirational Quotes


“I’ve never believed protectionism of that kind will lead us anywhere. I think you can have certain specific rules for engaging with India.. for example, not allowing mineral resources to be taken out of the country.. but there is not a shred of doubt in my mind that when you open an economy you should do it in totality. Foreign investment adds a sense of competition; we should see this as a wake-up call to modernize and upgrade. Companies that do not will undoubtedly die.” » Ratan Tata

Having said that, I hope that a hundred years from now we will spread our wings far beyond India.” » Ratan Tata


“We live in a highly competitive world – and we Indians have to struggle to catch up. So modesty is necessary, even if there is also a need for a certain amount of national pride.

Ratan Tata Quotes About Life, Family, and Business with Images


“I do not know how history will judge me, but let me say that I’ve spent a lot of time and energy trying to transform the Tatas from a patriarchal concern to an institutional enterprise. It would, therefore, be a mark of failure on my part if it were perceived that Ratan Tata epitomizes the Group’s success. What I have done is establish growth mechanisms, play down individuals and play up the team that has made the companies what they are. I, for one, am not the kind who loves dwelling on the ‘I’. If history remembers me at all, I hope it will be for this transformation.” » Ratan Tata
