The power of dreams and determination – Nano arrives
After Apple's Nano ipod and the oft-repeated buzzword, nanotechnology, we now have another Nano – a subcompact car. Yesterday, Tata Motors company of India finally introduced this car that sells for approximately $2,500 (basic model).

Despite being low cost and small, the car is supposed to have adequate room for four, and promises to meet various safety standards, and causes less pollution than a motorcycle. The car has a 2-cylinder, 33-horsepower engine and gives a whopping 50 miles per gallon of gas!

It was a dream of Tata Motor company's chairman, Ratan Tata, to build this "people's car", a low cost car for the masses. While critics had argued consistently that such a dream was impossible to fulfill, Tata Motor company showed what a person/company can do when he has determined to seriously pursue its goals.

Whether its Ratan Tata's dream to build a low cost car or Apple's Steve Job's relentless quest to make cool and easy to use devices for people, such people show that you can achieve your goals regardless of what the naysayers say. If history says that such tasks haven't been done in the past by anyone, such people nevertheless keep pursuing their dreams and create the history.
