I am doing a feature story for a leading business website domain-b. I request some input and quotes from you for the same.
Here are my queries
· Mr. Chidambaram has asked industry to cut prices – why is he doing so?
· Many industry leaders have retaliated against this. What factors will entice them to bring down prices?
· What measures does the government have to take to help the producers to reduce prices?
· Why is the government balking against bringing down oil prices?
· Historically how are oil prices and inflation liked?
· How will the government walk the fine line between falling prices and deflation?

The usual case with many MNCs`, and I speak as being part of one, is that these events, usually organized by cultural groups formed in the company, rarely have any senior representative of the organization as a member ,who could point out the logistical requirements in terms of security and crisis mgmnt. A cruel reminder of that.
