A senior government nominee director appointed to the boards of companies in the aftermath of the Satyam-in 2009 recalled how he had suggested the idea of recording the proceedings of the board on tape. “I had seen an inbuilt tape recording system in one of the public sector companies and suggested to the other nominee directors that even our proceedings should be recorded. But the government directors shot it down.” “Duniya bhar ke baat karni hogi. Tape recorder nahi rahega (We have a lot to talk about. A tape recorder won’t work),” they said by way of an excuse.
