    3. Ratan Tata: The government's support to startups is promising, which hasn't been spelt out totally as yet. People would come to India if it makes business sense for them, either in terms of cost or closeness to the market and raw material and fair prices. (Reuters)

    8. Ratan Tata: Seriously, I think the success is in the ability to take really a visionary view usually which the founder does not see where such company could go and take long-term view that most people may not take and it gives us the advantage of taking the company which goes beyond others. The risks and difficulties of these startup ventures are much less in magnitude than investing in a major company that lines up new projects as the quality of their passion is much more relevant in the startup company than it might have in larger investor.

    9. Ratan Tata: So I consider the difficulty of them making good judgement in startups are somewhat easier and simpler than the complex and larger companies," he said. (PTI)

  • 10. Ratan Tata: I think it would be inappropriate to valuate what investments have been made by me personally. I wouldn't divulge as it is my personal investment. Why would I tell people about how much I spent to buy cars and other things? However, my company looks at partnerships where investments would look meaningful. (AP)

    I have been waiting for the Lava V5 since its launch was announced. At the time of its release I was actually pretty impressed with its cost to spec ratio. It comes with a 13 MP rear camera which uses a Samsung image sensor along dual LED flash. The front 8.0 MP Selfiecamera also comes with an 84 degree wide angle lens along with a dedicated front facing LED flash (good news Selfie-obsessed people). The camera features alone make the V5 a superb choice for both casual and amateur photographers. Will buy this soon, thanks Lava!
