New Delhi. Even as the Chairman of Tata Group, Ratan Tata has moved Supreme Court claiming invasion of his privacy through release of tapes that show him talking about black ties and gowns, besides happiness of former telecom minister A Raja, a survey has shown that most of the citizens of the country wanted to know even more minute details about his personal life.
“Gosh, he is so rich! I had always wondered how long he would wear the same underwear. More than five times? I don’t think so,” said Neeraj, who felt that Ratan Tata was being “unnecessarily fussy” about his privacy, and such details must come out in the public.
“In fact, what happens to the used ones? Does his staff wear them? Who would not want to know these things?” demanded Neeraj, “And yeah, does he pick nose when he is alone in his office?”
Similar sentiments were echoed by thousands of others respondents in seven major cities of India, who felt that there was hardly anything “interesting” that came out of the released transcripts of telephonic talks between Ratan Tata and Niira Radia; they wanted “more”.
“After he decided to move to the Supreme Court over privacy, I was forced to listen to the released tapes out of curiosity,” said Imran, a marketing executive, “but apart from those ties and gowns, all he was talking about was A Raja’s chances of becoming telecom minister again and Ambanis’ business strategies. So boring.”
“Tata should learn from Veena Malik and Asmit Patel,” said Imran, “they have voluntarily released far more interesting details with video footage, whereas Tata is going crazy just over a few minutes of boring audio clips.”
“Sharing is caring,” he added, requesting Tata to voluntarily share more personal details, such as his bathing and sleeping habits with the public, and not go to the courts over such issues.
