Nano car taken to Ajmer for Khwaja's blessings

TATA Motor's long-awaited car Nano was taken to Ajmer for blessings of Sufi Saint Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti. The car is about to be launched later this year.

The much-hyped car will be available in the market soon. The model has been heralded as ordinary Indian's car that was initially priced at Rs 1 lakh (100,000 or equivalent to 2000 dollars).

On Sunday, the officials took the car to the grave of the Muslim Saint at Ajmer in Rajasthan. The grave has been a place for pilgrimage for Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs and devotees of other religions for more than seven centuries.

The officials prayed for the success of the model as there have been controversies ever since the company took the challenge to manufacture the new car for Indian market.

Maruti has long been Indian middle-class' favourite car. But Ratan Tata wanted a car, which every Indian could afford. After resistance from Trinamool Congress leader Mamata Banerjee who led an agitation against land acquisition in West Bengal, the project was shifted to Gujarat.
