Ganu: Hi, sorry.
Radia: How much is the economic survey going to take up your schedule today?
Ganu: Umm.. survey?
Ganu: Almost the whole day.
Radia: Because we may have something. Otherwise then I will wait and give it to you.
Ganu: Haan haan, aap bataiye
(Yeah, you tell me). Then we can - whatever is the right time.
Radia: Because then I will not give it to anybody else, I will give it only as an exclusive to you, you can say you got it from the government or wherever.
Ganu: Okay. What time -
Radia: It's a letter we sent.
Ganu: Okay. To the government...okay. So, then..
Radia: Tum abhi bolna nahin kisiko
please (You please don't tell anyone now.)
Ganu:Nahin nahin, kuch nahin
(No, no, nothing). What time do you think will be right because I am meeting the Chief Economic Advisor in Finance Ministry. Almost... he is the one who has written the economic survey and all. He has called me to explain ki kya kya hai isme
(what all is there in this), the important things..etc..
Ganu: For that I think about 4.30 to about say...5.30 I will be there with him in the North Block. After that you tell me -
Radia: Economic Advisor is now who?
Ganu: - that Arvind Virmani...so after that I should be free.
Radia: So I will give it to them at 6 o'clock.
Ganu: Okay, great.
Radia: Kal print mein aayega na?
(It will come in print tomorrow right?)
Ganu: Uh-huh...this one also was there na
Radia: Today was beautiful. How come Bombay...Bombay dateline?
Ganu: We we, I told you...I sent you a message also na
. Jaiswal was ill na
so therefore our inputs we send usually to ...yahaan se
we send. (we mend and send it) and ask them to write and then add a little bit whatever, correct it and then use it.
Ganu: Because you know, we are also in between going into this thing na
.. so, therefore yesterday since he was ill we went to this thing.. told Bodhi and told a couple of people there to join in. But, all the..
Radia: Bodhi was really compromised.
Ganu: But the main point and all, what we gave.. natural resources.
Radia: It was beautiful! It was really good! I wanted to say thank Ganu to them. But what I wanted to mention was yeh aaj
letter important hai
(this letter today is important). Humne
basically government ko likhke yeh bola, mere paas abhi
letter nahin hai..
(We basically wrote to the government and said.. I don't have the letter right now..)
Radia: That basically what we are saying is ... you know, here is a judgment and we are committed to our agreement with the government and the PSC and we are not fully aware of our - we are not only fully aware of our obligation but also duty bound.
Ganu: Okay. Great.
Radia: Also, its a very important and significant letter.
Ganu: Sure, sure. Let people around 6.30-7 and then go full blast.
Radia: And then tomorrow morning same thing na
, like today?
Ganu: Yes yes!
Radia: But economic survey saara
page na le jaye na
(should not take the whole page). Give me front page please.
Ganu: We will tell them that don't bother too much about.
Radia: I am not giving it to anybody else.
Ganu: Okay great. Then what I will do is..
Radia: This letter will only be with you.
Ganu: Sure. What I will do is, then when I come back to the office, you can actually put it to me on my email id..
Ganu: And then what I will do is I will take a printout and then delete the mail and all that. Then I will use from there and say that this is what I got from the government's office.
Ganu: Okay done.
Radia: One thing, when you meet Virmani, you can tell him how can a family agreement supercede ..
Ganu: Sure sure! Why not? I will take the ca - I will tell him you have spoken about this degradation and all. What are the things happening? Everything is being decided in a peaceful manner, and then introduce this point..
Radia: Yeah. And to say how can a family decide what it is, yeah?
Ganu: Sure. 100% I will tell him.
Radia: Great. Then we will talk after you finish.
Ganu: Once I am free from there, once I come out, immediately I will give you a call.
