The financial year 2006-07 has ended on a positive note, financially and operationally. Strong demand from steel industry worldwide has been an important factor for the encouraging results. However, optimum use of key resources like chrome ore and electricity has been our objective, to keep costs under control. We need to achieve longterm viability, as market prices and demand do and will fluctuate. Further integration to coal mining and expansion of electricity generation is now pursued expeditiously for adequate fundamental strength. Lets hope and put our best efforts to better our operations in the current year. Consistency in operations is extremely important for us to implement our future plans. Dear Colleagues, One of the four ongoing projects, the 30 MVA furnace at Chowduar has just been completed and commissioned successfully. This adds another 40,000 MT to our Ferro Chrome capacity, which is a significant step in our constant endeavour for leadership amongst integrated producers in India. The project completion got delayed by about six months . We are serious about drawing lessons from this lapse. The industrial hyper activity that we see in Odisha today has brought to the fore many new factors that affect schedules. But there is scope for more pro-activity, which we need to put in our planning process. We have prioritised on recruitment of new talent to manage and lead our new projects. New members of IMFA family at all locations are not only taking care of assignments and responsibilities, but are also bringing in new ideas and new perspectives which is so very important. The induction and orientation process of first few months is a two way traffic, and sets the platform for effective teamwork. On the commercial front, we are experiencing a slight downturn in the international demand for ferro chrome. The silver lining however is, quarter to quarter price movements are becoming nominal, unlike in the cyclical past; I am very hopeful this is the beginning of a new trend of stability in demand and price of our product.

THE PERFECT GIRL A friend asked a gentleman how it is that he never
married ? Replied the gentleman, "Well, I guess I just never met
the right woman ... I guess I've been looking for the perfect
girl." "Oh, come on now," said the friend, "Surely you have met at
least on girl that you wanted to marry."
"Yes, there was one girl .. once. I guess she was the one perfect
girl .. the only perfect girl I really ever met. She was just the
right everything .. I really mean that she was the perfect girl for
me." "Well, why didn't you marry her," asked the friend. "She was
looking for the perfect man," he said.
Genie In The Lamp
A man was walking along a California beach and stumbled upon an old
lamp. He picked it up and rubbed it and out popped a genie. The
genie said "OK. OK. You released me from the lamp, blah, blah,
blah. This is the 4th time this month and I'm getting a little sick
of these wishes so you can forget about three. You only get one
wish! The man sat and thought about it for a while and said, "I've
always wanted to go to Hawaii, but I'm scared to fly and I get very
seasick. Could you build me a bridge to Hawaii so I can drive over
there to visit?" The genie laughed and said, "That's impossible!
Think of the logistics of that! How would the supports ever reach
the bottom of the Pacific? Think of how much concrete . . how much
steel!! No, think of another wish!" The man said OK and tried to
think of a really good wish. Finally, he said, "I've been married
and divorced four times. My wives always said that I don't care and
that I'm insensitive. So, I wish that I could understand women . .
…. know how they feel inside and what they're thinking when they
give me the silent treatment . . .know why they're crying, know
what they really want when they say, 'nothing' . . . know how to
make them truly happy . . ." The genie said, "You want that bridge
with two lanes or four?"
