1)As common men, we all take pride in the above. What we fail to understand is that all such records do not eventually materialize in economic benefit for the common man?

It requires huge investments, which earlier the Govt was not ready to sanction to the PSUs. Now with more professional commitment and the attitude of the Govt having changed, even ONGC is in it in a big way. We have to remember that, we are the fifth biggest consumer of energy. We cannot really depend on the proposed Iran pipeline that itself is in trouble and which will be at the mercy of the hostile elements in ...more
