Dear Mr. Tata,
I would firstly like to wish you a very happy 72nd birthday and advance new years wishes. May this new year keep you in good health and help the TATA conglomerate flourish as always.
I have off late been hearing that you are to retire in the coming years and your in search of a successor. I don' know if I am eligible to apply for the post ;) .
I am a final year student of engineering , will be graduating in 2010 majoring in IT. I have been deeply bit by the business bug and has always been inspired by the TATA group for the ethics and values they bring in to their employees and their management systems. I am also looking to do an MBA course in the coming years which I believe would feed my quest in know about business and management.
It was some four years back that I decided I wanted to become an entrepreneur and that time around I got to read your biography and that was it and I decided then that I should definetly meet you atleast once in my life time :) .
I read in a business magazine stating that you aren't particular about any constraints for applying for the post of the chairman , though the designation sounds a little contradicting with me being a woman , I wouldn' really mind it ;)
Many happy returns of the day to you Sir :)
