RKC: Haanji, kya haal hai...
(How are you?)
NR: I just came out of the meeting, I met our minister, Fareed baitha hua tha bahar
(was sitting outside) without an appointment, as usual.
RKC: Toh daant diya hoga sahab ne sab ko...
(So boss must have scolded everyone...)
RKC: Staff walon ko daanta?
(Did he scold the staff?)
(Yes), because I think he is a bit frustrated about, he said that he is limiting the number of people that meet him and he's also changed all his staff, because, I am glad you've done that.
RKC: Nahin, nahin
(No, no), we have changed the entire staff in office also except 2-3 persons. And sahab ne bola ki
(And boss said) you also meet people only during one specified time. Not the entire day, ki koi aa raha hai, koi jaa raha hai...
(that someone is arriving, someone is leaving.)
NR: Absolutely right.
RKC: We will start work it out...ki bhai
,` that nobody without appointment...and...
NR: He was telling me about secretary and BSNL, and he told me about his own media, so I am going to give you a plan as to how we should do it. I'll dedicate one person who will handle that media for him, okay?
NR: We'll have to find a way whether we give him to you internally, I'll give you one of my trusted guys who is very well in with the media.
RKC: Okay, fine.
NR: Okay you want an independent...my honest advice is tum jaise yeh
perfect perfect sab ko chhor do kyunki yeh sab
alignments hai in logon ki.
(Leave this 'perfect perfect' stuff, because all these are these people's alignments.)
RKC: Nahin, woh to hai, kisi ne bataya hai...
(No, that's there, someone has told me...)
NR: I can't...I don't think anyone... Shahid will tell you I have one of the finest teams you know...ek
(one) second...We are not meeting na
RKC: Today, if you think you can come by 3:30, we can meet.
NR: No, then, I will go to Gurgaon na
, I want to talk to you about that also. Hang on. (To someone else) I'm not going there...I'm not going there. Sorry mein
Suvarna se keh rahi thi,
(inaudible) Nahin, nahin woh maine wahaan jana hai, usne
...I'm trying to narrow him down on to something.
RKC: Okay, theek hai
NR: That's why. So I don't want to leave that pending...Finally all the sons and the father have come on the table.
RKC: Okay, toh ya to phir kal milte hain teen baje kareeb?
(Okay, or instead let's meet tomorrow around three?)
NR: I am moving tomorrow to the apartment by the way.
