Very informative post Sagar bhai. Clearly, even if we use our potential for nuclear energy to the maximum, we'll still have a shortfall of power. How will that be generated? We have been hearing about coal mining projects and a few, expensive renewable energy proposals. Are they likely to come to fruition?
