For a lot of people around the world, Tata means Cars.
Why? Because that’s the most visible part, we see cars everywhere and Tata owns well known international brands like Jaguar, Land Rover and Tata Motors. So naturally when you say Tata, our mind immediately jumps to cars.
But for Tata, their automobile division is just a very small part of what they do.
The list of things the Tata Group does is seemingly endless: Chemicals, Consumer Products, Energy, Information Technology, Services, Steel, Airlines, Infrastructure and a lot more.
Just the number of publicly listed Tata Group companies reads 29, giving the group a combined valuation in excess of $150 billion. I really don’t know if there is any other company that has kept its hand in so many different things. Honestly, it baffles me. It really does not make business sense and I will explain in a later part of the video why I think so.
This video is not about how much money Tata has and what they are doing with it. But what we are going to see in this video is how Tata group, a 150 year old company, single handedly changed the course of a country, a country as large as India. How did one man’s effort have such an outsized impact on a nation with more than a billion people?
