This is another conversation in continuation of the earlier one, where the topic seems to be buying some mines or property in Brazil, with similar doubts being expressed about them (Radia-Jeh) being left out and sellers contacting Tatas(apparently) directly. So are these two working as agents of Tatas or they are striking a deal for themselves does not come out clearly. But highly intriguing alright, especially considering the anxiety displayed to sign the Non-disclosure agreement (NDA). It is clear from this and earlier conversation between Radia and Jeh, who seems to be based in London, that Radia is not just into Corporate communications or consulting for Tatas, but much more than that internationally also, with others.
Radia: Jeh hi!
Jeh: hi Niira can you talk?
Radia: ya.. I'm just about to look at the building so.. (laughs)
Radia: if you get me breathless than you know why I'm just walking around (laughs)
Jeh: no.. no problem. I just wanted to check couple of things with you
Jeh: You know anybody Mr. Gupta there in Tatas or they are using any consultant
Radia: Mr. Gupta…..(thinking)
Radia: no I mean there are so many people who move around here and there everywhere.
Radia: Oh there is this Mr. Shyamlal Gupta.. who is their chairman of the Tata International
Jeh: because I think ah…the… seller in Brazil
Jeh: might have known Mr. Tata, Mr. Shyamal Gupta looks like
Radia: May be
Jeh: may be ya
Radia: but that doesn't matter we can't do the transaction
Jeh: Sure, so it's important that we find the NDA as quick as possible
Radia: ok..ok. well, I did tell them that… I did tell them that.
Radia: Ok let me have a word with him because you know
Jeh: because engagement we can find later on with CA and all this things but non disclosure they are basically..
Jeh: they cannot do this deal through somebody else
