At that time Ratan Tata thought that his girlfriend would move to India with him. But, unfortunately, because of the 1962 Indo-China war, her parents didn’t let her continue the relationship with Ratan Tata.
Ratan Tata was quoted as saying:“I made the decision to move back at least temporarily since I had been away from my grandmother who wasn’t keeping too well for almost 7 years. So I came back to visit her & thought that the person I wanted to marry would come to India with me, but because of the 1962 Indo-China war her parent’s weren’t okay with her making the move anymore & the relationship fell apart.”
It is so unfortunate that Ratan Tata couldn’t marry love of his life because of the life circumstances.
