We need to explore the scope for acquiring energy assets abroad.
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, September 20

I am delighted to formally announce the first flow of crude oil from the Krishna-Godavari basin.
Mukesh Ambani, Chairman and Managing Director, Reliance Industries, September 21

For those who think these two statements made in the past two days are intellectually slippery, here’s the bottom line. More than anything else, it is energy security that will drive India’s economic growth and help drill prosperity into the country. It affects the fortunes of countries and companies, investors and consumers and most important, it brings political stability.
