Perl Repetitive Pattern Matching

Problem:

GIVEN
=======
my $sql="INSERT INTO table_nm(a, b, b, d, e, f , g) VALUES (2046, TODAY, 'Change Subscription Name', '00000000000002000000000000000000000000000000000000', '00000000000001000000000000000000000000000000000000', '00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000', 1); ";

Required O/P:
================
a=2046 AND b=TODAY AND c='Change Subscription Name' AND d='00000000000002000000000000000000000000000000000000' AND e='00000000000001000000000000000000000000000000000000' AND f='00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000' AND g=1

WHAT I DID:
Code:
if ( $sql =~ m/^\s*INSERT\s+INTO\s+.*VALUES\s*\(/ )
   {
                          $sql =~ s/^\s*INSERT\s+INTO\s+[^\(]*\((.*),?\)\s+VALUES[\s]*\(([^\)]*)\).*/$1|--|$2/i;
                          $sql =~ s/([^,]*),.*?\|--\|([^,]*),.*?/$1=$2 AND/gi;
                          print "$sql"
   }

Actual Output:

a=2046 AND TODAY, 'Change Subscription Name', '00000000000002000000000000000000000000000000000000', '00000000000001000000000000000000000000000000000000', '00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000', 1


Can you please suggest me how to get the required output?

Thanks summer_cherry.

But I want to do the whole things only by pattern matching.

Input is changed little bit. Inside the quotes ',' can present... Please try to use pattern matching only
