May 27, 2011 / Nano Superdrive -2

Day 11. We have reached Nagpur!

Today the Superdrive 2 Cavalcade climbed on to the National Highway 7 amidst intermittent rain and crosswinds. 150 Kilometres from Yevatmal, we reached Nagpur early enough. We halted at Jaika Motors, the local Tata showroom, which was to be the home of our cavalcade for our stint at the centre of India.

Its peak summer here but thanks to the rain, as we reached Nagpur, the temperatures have fallen and the mid-day heat is just about bearable. The drive into the city was pretty calm. The traffic of Nagpur is pretty mellow for a working day, especially after visiting the towns of Kolhapur and Sholapur, it really feels good to come to a city where the pace of life gives one a chance to breathe. I hope it’s not a case of saying too much too soon!

Even as we settle down in the home town of oranges, the preparation for tomorrow’s mall activation has started in full swing. There is a flurry of activity all around me as I notice all the team members are on top of their game. I slow myself down even further to take in the sounds and aromas of Nagpur. This is a big city, with interesting people and an even more interesting road network. Almost every crossroad is called a square!

The people of Nagpur are in for a treat as our Nano Superdrive 2 Convoy prepares for the intra-city drive tomorrow. The two Jazzed up Tata Nanos, along with local guests who use the Nano everyday will grace the gala event as we roll across the city. I am looking forward to meeting the people who make up this city. It will be interesting to see and hear what they feel about the Nano and its presence in their lives.

As far as my experience is concerned, I am loving the opportunity to talk to people about a car that has already transformed the lives of more than 100,000 families. It is touching to see and hear stories of individuals as they express their deepest feelings for, what some people would call, a car.

Nagpur, we are here! Join us for the mall activation at Empress Mall, Cotton market, Nagpur from 11am to 9pm and become a part of this mega journey through India – The Tata Nano Superdrive 2.
