New Delhi: A day after its unveiling, Nano-mania is catching on among the people in Delhi. We have read about it in the papers, seen it on television and by now, most of us know about the people's car. But who are these people who'd like to buy the Nano? Anuja Tiwari runs a small business, a tiffin service and PG accommodation in South Delhi. However, after she moved to faraway Gurgaon, she was forced to buy a second hand, B-segment car only with a loan. But with the one-lakh car soon to arrive in the market, she says she wouldn't mind buying one. "The car is affordable. I will buy the car," says Anuja Tiwari. Ratan Tata's car for the aam aadmi is also generating interest in a more affluent category, the professionals working in big companies. They could afford a larger car but they have their own reasons for wanting the Nano. Whatever may be the motive, a high profile launch has ensured that more and more people are at least curious about Tata's dream project. The Tata’s will be hopeful that the curiosity of the people will translate into sales when the car hits the markets in October this year.
