Manoj: Haan woh
Utpal ka woh wallah
query tha ki
(Yes, Utpal had a query that) MTPC - NTPC - Power ministry is writing a letter to Petroleum ministry saying that they should give them 2.34 - gas at 2.43 with the option of whatever happens in the High Court kind of a thing.
Niira: No no, that is sub judice.
Manoj: Haan, theek hai, theek hai
(Yes, okay, okay).
Niira: Likewise, with (inaudible), na
Manoj: Okay, okay.
Niira: Jaiswal ki
help hi karegi
(Jaiswal's story will help us).
Manoj: Umm. Haan, theek hai. Ki yeh
allocation hua nahin hai
. (Umm. Yes, okay. That this allocation hasn't taken place.)
Niira: Haan, haan haan. Par
Manoj, ek baat hai, mein tujhe ek baat bataon, yeh jo
Anupam aur yeh sab hai na
(Yes yes yes. But Manoj, there's one thing, may I tell you one thing, this Anupam and all) -
Niira: Agar tum aur mai, aur hum log teen-chaar jane agar
handle karle na
(Id you and I, and us three-four people handle this) -
Niira: - (inaudible) kisi ki zaroorat nahin hai
(there is no need for that).
Niira: Is time, because honestly speaking, na, mein jo dekh rahi hoon, aur woh mujhe
feedback aa raha hai, ki yeh jo humko - jaise
Rohit se bhi
feedback aata hai ya to yeh, in logon se, isne aise kiya hai, isne aise kiya hai - hum log jyada tar
fear psychosis mein jeete hain, tujhe pata hai na
, I always try to break free of that - (...honestly speaking, what I am seeing, and what feedback I am getting, for example from Rohit - this person did this, this person did that - we tend to live with a fear psychosis, you know, I always try to break free of that -)
Manoj: Hmm, hmm.
Niira: So I do not believe, after what I've seen that nothing is possible without communicating, and I don't think that they're so powerful, ki
there are wheels within wheels, they have great strategies as Vishal puts it, you see.
Manoj: Hmm, hmm.
Niira: I do not believe that, their strategy is destructive, and you can always counter destructive strategies.
Manoj: Hmm, hmm.
Niira: So I honestly don't know that, you know, his meeting Arindam or this or that will cause - I don't think so. Because I - Arindam has been on the phone with me since yesterday, twice he called me, you know, everyone has been in touch. Sukumar by the way called me this morning haan
, what's he saying?
Niira: You know, when you - I just want to say one thing to you, that I'm really grateful, and I'm sorry, maybe next time the meetings should be one-on-one, also you know, he says, when you come to Mint, just remember that you're going to have lunch with us.
Manoj: Arrey wah!
Manoj: Madam, bas, woh ek hi hai
(just that one thing), I mean what you mentioned in the morning that it's upto reporters you don't get involved because they have a tendency of lee - being leeches, more than anything else, Sukumar and all that is fine, but you know, Nayantara and Supriya are all -
Niira: I don't even handle them, but they keep on calling me, and I get really bugged with them.
Manoj: Haan, to aap bol do na, ki isse
deal kar le
(Yes to tell them to deal with it) - you know, travelling or something like that and they will -
Manoj: No because it will get irritating after a point of time, I mean, since I handle them on a daily basis, yeh kuch
story de do, koi
paper de do, yehi chalta reha hai unka
Niira: Haan, haan, haan, haan.
Niira: And then I said - I said, "Okay, can I choose the menu?"
(No), okay, TP.
Niira: Of course you can (chuckles).
Niira: So anyway, just letting you know.
Manoj: Good good, good good.
Niira: Keep that in mind, keep that in mind that we do not need that, and so when you meet Vishal now -
Niira: - you need to tell him that you know, honestly speaking, our observation is quite different from what we're being told, you know -
Niira: On the ground, tumhari
review karna kal
(review your team tomorrow), I think we should take some very pragmatic steps, you know?
Manoj: Theek hai, theek hai
Niira: Now let's look at it from, that point of view. Huh?
Manoj: Sure -
