On the eve of Valentine’s Day, industrialist Ratan Tata shared his ‘love story’. He said in a Facebook post that it happened in Los Angeles when he was working in an architecture company after completing college.

Tata said it was a great time and the weather was beautiful. He had his own car and he loved his job. This was the early year after 1960 when he was around 25 years of age.

Tata said he fell in love and almost got married. But he decided to return temporarily because he was away from his grandmother who had been unwell for seven years. He returned to his girlfriend later in the hope that she would come to India and get married to him.

But because of the India-China war in 1962, the girl’s parents were no longer in favour of furthering this relationship. So it broke up.

It is well known that Ratan Tata has been unmarried all his life. He says that he does not regret it.

Tata was born on 28 December 1937 in Surat, Gujarat to a Parsi family. His father’s name was Naval Tata and his mother was Sonu Tata. His father had two marriages. His step mother’s name was Simone Tata. Noel Tata is his half-brother.

His biological grandfather, Hormusji Tata, had belonged to the broader Tata family. Ratan, therefore, was a Tata by birth. Parents Naval and Sonoo separated in 1948 when Ratan was 10, and he was subsequently raised by the widow of Sir Ratanji Tata, his grandmother, Navajbai Tata, who formally adopted him through the JN Petit Parsi Orphanage.

After pursuing higher education from Cornell and Harvard University, Ratan joined the Tata group. He is currently the honorary chairman of Tata Sons, Tata Industries, Tata Motors, Tata Steel and Tata Chemicals.

Ratan Tata has been the chairman of Tata Steel, Tata Motors, Tata Consultancy Services, Tata Power, Tata Global Beverages, Tata Chemical, Taj Group and Tata Teleservices.
