January 27:

Enjoying life after retirement, country's top industrialist Ratan Tata is spending more time at home and playing with his dogs besides catching up with "smaller things" for which he never found time before.

Providing a sneak peek into his personal life, the former Chairman of the $100 billion, salt-to-software Tata Group said that he would soon start focusing on specific areas to improve the quality of life of people in rural areas.

In a message titled 'Life After Retirement' posted on microblogging site Twitter, the usually reticent Tata said the first few weeks of life after retirement have been wonderfully pleasant.

"There has been more time to be at home, play with my dogs, and catch upon smaller things which I never found the time to do earlier," the 75-year old said in the tweet posted late on Saturday.

Tata, credited with transforming the group through bold decisions including large global acquisitions, retired as Chairman on December 28, after being at the helm for 21 years.

"As days go by, I will begin to focus my attention on specific areas where value can be added to enhance the quality of life of the rural citizens.

"I hope this will be greatly engrossing activity and one which hopefully I would enjoy," he said in the tweet.

Tata now is the Chairman Emeritus of Tata Sons, the promoter of major operating companies of Tata Group.

He led group companies to some notable acquisitions, including the buyouts of Jaguar Land Rover by Tata Motors, Corus by Tata Steel and Tetley by Tata Tea.
