Sounding confident that the economy will overcome the current crisis, Reliance industry chairman Mukesh Ambani today said there is a need to look beyond the gloom and doom.

Stating that India needs a positive and inclusive mindset, Ambani expressed confidence that despite all the negativity India will become a major power. "I have realised that by focusing on obstacles, you don't reach your goals.

Instead focus on your goals to overcome obstacles," he said. After going through a financial turmoil for almost a year, greenshoots have appeared in the economy of late, giving a hope of recovery. After contracting for two straight months, industrial production entered the positive zone in July, recording a growth of 2.6% on account of improved performance of manufacturing and power sectors.
