I began writing articles on how football was before three decades. I really enjoyed talking to former players, coaches, researching and writing.

See all the teams cannot play equally well. Say a team like Delhi, a city which doesn’t have a Football culture and if we assume they are at the foot of the table, attendance will be affected.

I believe that the Phillips League collapsed as the TV Coverage went down. Doordarshan wasn’t able to promote it much and as a result, the masses lost interest. For the ISL though, having Star Sports are the major media coverage partner is simply brilliant.

Strength, height and weight. Many outfield players in international football, including Brazil have players who weigh 75 kgs and over and defenders and strikers are invariably 6 feet tall.

India lacks physically imposing players and except for Baichung Bhutia nobody who has the skills to change a game, with skill.

It is ironic that the guy who set the standard of stardom was forgotten. It was his death that made us remember him again.

I am 37 and people ask me how come I got interested in Rajesh Khanna since I never witnessed his peak.

If you look at the second generation of stars -- Rajendra Kumar or Manoj Kumar, they were still trying to ape Dilip Kumar. Shammi Kapoor was trying to outdo Dev Anand. In that sense, Rajesh Khanna is unique and he carved a place for himself.

For audiences and critics alike, if Anand was largely about Rajesh Khanna, Namak Haraam ended up being mostly about Amitabh Bachchan, although it was the other way round for the director of both the films.

When Khanna was offered Namak Haraam, he was to play Vicky, the spoilt brat, but he opted for Somu, the conscientious poor man, for he is the one who dies in the end.

After I finished the God of Small Things, it just blew my life apart in so many ways, good and bad. I used to wonder if I would ever regret having written a book that, in crass terms, was so successful.

When the nuclear tests happened, I felt that I didn’t have the choice of keeping quiet, whether I spoke or I didn’t speak, it was equally political.

For me, I live inside my work. Although I must say that I was thinking at some time about writers who like to remain anonymous – but I’ve never been that person.

I’m writing against them. I mean, it’s not that I’m a pure person, like all of us I have contradictions and issues, I’m not like Gandhiji, you know, but in theory I abide by this.
