On politics:

“This country now needs a change in policies and government. People like us who discuss politics in the sitting rooms have to come out forward and work for the nation.”

On why did he join Osho:

“My own mind. My mind was very hyper. My thoughts were all over the place. I was very angry. I had reached a saturation point. I used to see that when I meditated, these things did not use to effect me at all. Only when you become the master of your own mind, I decided to give my full time to it. There was a need within me. I was very much in touch with my family.”

On his marriage with Kavita:

“I realised that you can’t go on like this forever. You’re either going to say that you want to get married or you stop this relationship. You can’t keep her hanging. I must do that. It came from my heart.”

On being a father:

“What children need the most is love and I pour love onto them.”
