Mukesh Ambani, Chairman and Managing Director of Reliance Industries, does little in half measures.
He had not interacted with the media for at least two years, yet the Chairman of the countryÃƒÂ‚Ã‚Â’s largest private sector company made up for the hiatus by spending most of Sunday with scores of journalists from across the country.
Ambani was profusely apologetic for spoiling their Sunday. He had thought he would use the interaction to announce to world the first flow of oil from the companyÃƒÂ‚Ã‚Â’s oil and gas field in the Krishna-Godavari basin, but he was pre-empted by a leak of that news a couple of days ago. So, he was left to explain the significance of the ÃƒÂ‚Ã‚Â“historic dayÃƒÂ‚Ã‚Â” for India. He did so with the same passion and commitment that has brought the first commercial quantities of oil flowing from a field just six years after gas was first discovered.
