Ruh Roh Rover

Just as India and the United States of America are establishing closer economic, diplomatic and political ties somehow both countries conspire to erode the confidence each has in each other.

No there has not been a political fly in the soup.

I am referring to Ford selling Jaguar and Land Rover to Tata of India.

This will lower the opinion people have of Indian products and workmanship.

It will lower the opinion of Indians about dealing with Americans as Ford sold them a British car marque (/shudder).

Maybe it was the cricket that did it to them. Maybe it was the tea. I really do not know why India wanted this car marque. Maybe it gives them access to key technologies. I would recommend before employing any such new technology they verify it was not engineered by a resident of the U.K.
