MW: Haan, morning.
Niira: Manoj, morning. Manoj, GM mein jo announcement tune dekha hai, kafi flash hua hai
(The announcement made in GM has been flashed quite a bit).
Niira: Obviously it's a major announcement.
, my sense is that yours is going to flash just as much.
MW: Yeah yeah, absolutely.
Niira: Haan. Kal meri Bodhi se baat hui thi
(Yes. Yesterday I spoke to Bodhi).
Niira: Bodhi was - has called me on an issue about the Tata - well he wanted that uh MDA and um -
MW: Haan, woh bola aapne mereko
(Yes, you told me that).
, but then he was actually on about the RBI guarantee on Tatas.
Niira: But jaise woh - jaise woh baat kar raha tha na
(But as he was - as he was speaking) -
Niira: - I couldn't believe it, I told him you know, I said, Bodhi I thought you were opinionated but I didn't know you were so opinionated that you are actually angry that RBI has allowed this?
Niira: He was actually angry!
Niira: Said how could Tatas have got away with this?
Niira: Yeh bahut ek erious issue hai you know?
(It's a very serious issue, you know?)
it's getting a little um more than uh one - and I was thinking about it right through the day yesterday, I was thinking ki yeh, yeh galat hai
(that this is wrong).
Niira: You know? Now that's one. So the second thing I wanted to ask you is jo yeh Vir Sanghvi keh de message mila tha isse, Yatish se
(did this Vir Sanghvie get the messages from Yatish)?
MW: Haan haan
. Questions, na
Niira: He's doing - do you think it's tactically a good idea ki inki interviews dono CNN-IBN aur um CNBC mein appear ho
(that their interviews appear on both CNN-IBN and CNBC), does it send a message or do you think we need to approach it differently?
Niira: But Vir ko interviews to maine dene hi hai, jo bhi ho jaye
(But I have to give Vir the interviews, whatever happens).
MW: Hmm, hmm hmm.
Niira: And the other option I've got is it might as well be the first few interviews, na?
Niira: I don't want it to be in the middle somewhere also.
Niira: That can also be - or it can be in the middle also, hardly really matters if these two have their own position.
Niira: But in dono ka
(these two) - the reason I want to do those two interviews is because then they can they say what, I can ask whatever questions you want.
MW: That's right.
Niira: Jo bhi clarify karna hai hum log kar sakte hain
(We can clarify whatever needs to be clarified), you know, it's a great opportunity and a great platform.
Niira: Toh, mujhe woh use karna hai, platform
(So, I want to use that platform).
Niira: Toh uske liye tumko ek to pehle mujhe questions dene hain.
MW: Haan woh to main de dunga.
Niira: Haan woh thoda discuss bhi karna padega Mukesh ke saath, ek Mukesh ko mail bhejne padega ispe.
Niira: Toh tumhara mail bhej dena, Suresh se maine Ratan Tata ka bhijwa diya hai
MW: Theek hai,
(That what are the questions and all that, and ask that it's an opportunity for us to - and of course with we, we can manage whatever questions you want to ask, right?
Niira: Toh and uh...given that it'll be aired on both CNN... CNBC and CNN-IBN, it's an opportunity he - Mukesh may say, "What about the rest of the plan?"
Niira: So we can say in the note that this is part of the...part of the plan.
Niira: But I'm sliding it off earlier.
Niira: Because I want a plan for it, yeah?
Niira: That is...that is one. So I think it's a good timing to do that in the next month or so, month or two. I think his programs go on air from 1st of July, I think, yeah.
Niira: Yeah, but almost a month, so we've got a month to - we can also go in and do interviews mid-July, there's no compulsion that he has to do the first one.
MW: Theek hai
Niira: Toh abhi dekh sakte hum log, Vir se baat kar lungi, par pehle questions ka planning to shuru kar le, Sunil se baat kar le tum, usko questionnaires de do (inaudible) mail to de do pehle.
MW: Haan theek hai.
this is the way we want to go - when are you going to send me your presentation?
MW: Uh, today evening.
Niira: Today na
Niira: Okay, including the one for Prasad, that's a separate one or that's the same one?
MW: No that's an Oil & Gas one.
Niira: Okay, so you're going to do me the Oil & Gas one first, is it?
MW: I'm giving you all four today, most probably.
Niira: All four today?
MW: Yeah yeah.
Niira: Okay. Now the thing is you saw my mail to Alok on the employee issue last night.
MW: Haan boss, usme ek hi uh hai (Yes boss, a thing about that), I'll discuss it with Alok also.
MW: At this point of time we are not talking about us exiting...And they were offered credit-
Niira: (?) options?
MW: No no, they were offered credit by the State and they refused. RIL refused -
